Host OS : Win 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit. Guest OS : Win 8.1 Preview installed in Vmare Player. I have MS Office 2007 Home and Student installed in my host OS. How do I access them in guest OS ? Do I have to install into Win 8.1 ? If yes, a silly question......how ? My MS Office 2007 is a retail version with installation DVD and product key. Editing..... not that it will make any difference, but a fact I forgot to mention. My Vmare Player is a 32-bit version with maximum disk size 60GB and 1 GB Memory.
