Default Office 2007 Beta 1TR

  Beta-1 Technical Release Build Coming Next Week

Preparing to Install 2007 Microsoft Office System Products, Beta1
TR build
We are busy making final preparations for the 2007 Microsoft 
Office Beta 1 Technical Refresh (Beta1TR) release. We plan to 
release this to you on BetaPlace next week and appreciate your
 patience as we polish things off.

We have two goals for this release:

   1.      We want you to be able to validate that the fixes to 
issues you've previously reported about 2007 Microsoft Office do 
meet your needs.
   2.      We also want to provide a build of 2007 Microsoft Office 
that functions on Windows Vista Feb CTP. With this build, we will 
begin accepting bug and newsgroup submissions regarding the 
2007 Microsoft Office Beta1TR build on Windows Vista Feb. CTP.

The Beta1TR build remains suitable for testing. However, the 
quality bar has not been raised to the higher level that would be 
expected for a Beta-2 release. Therefore, there may be some 
areas of the product that function more effectively than before 
and others areas that display new bugs or problems. Please 
continue to log bugs in BetaPlace and use the newsgroups for 
product support.

Beta1TR E-mail to Expect from Microsoft
When we release the Beta1TR build next week, you will receive 
an e-mail from which contains the product identification keys 
(PIDs) needed for installing the new 2007 Microsoft Office system 
build. These product keys are the same PIDs you received 
previously and which you used to install the current (11/2005) 
Beta-1 build. The expiration date of the PIDs has been extended
 to July 31, 2006.

Beta1TR System Requirements
We have not yet set final 2007 Microsoft Office system 
requirements. We will provide full system guidelines on the 
Product Downloads page of the 2007 Microsoft Office web site to 
help you see optimal 2007 Microsoft Office Beta1TR performance.

There will be no upgrade from 2007 Microsoft Office Beta 1 to the
 Beta1TR build. It will be necessary to uninstall previous versions 
of 2007 Microsoft Office before installing 2007 Microsoft Office Beta
-1 refresh. And it will be necessary later to remove the 2007 
Microsoft Office Beta-1 refresh before installing 2007 Microsoft 
Office Beta 2 (this is a deviation from our previously announced 
plans to allow upgrade from 2007 Microsoft Office Beta 1 to 2007 
Microsoft Office Beta 2). The server products will have no upgrade
 capability from the refreshed Beta-1 versions to the Beta-2 
News i just recieved in my email inbox.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Just like Windows Vista, Office 2007 is now officially a 2007 product. Sure, Microsoft is still going to release to manufacturing (RTM) the Office 2007 bits in calendar 2006 (although a bit later than it expected). But only volume licensees will actually be able to get the Office 2007 bits in 2006; everyone else will have to wait until January 2007. Sounds like Microsoft is now planning a double-header product launch to start the new year. The news of Office 2007 new rollout schedule comes the same day that Microsoft appointed Office chief Steven Sinofsky to move to Windows to get the trains running on time.
