No window opened below others or on another virtual desktop?

Yes. that was the problem again ! Now I figured all in one screen. I was mistaken because  I couldn't see the virtual screen. I succeeded in getting Office  2007 working. The only tiresome is, that by opening a file the program always asks to activate the software.


Thanks for helping !
