Anyone Still Have Office 2007 Beta 1 Binaries?

I have some important documents that I created in Office 2007 beta 1, that are now trapped for all time, unless I get my hands on a copy of the Beta 1 bits. Does anyone still have them that can help me out? If so, please use the contact form at right to e-mail me. Thanks!

    Have you tried renaming the file to .zip and then just opening the sub-files in Notepad until you find the (unformated) data?

  • There's this killer technology out there called BitTorrent ;-).

    I have both B2 and B2TR bits if those will help.

    I suggest checking out the torrent sites or usernet, probably quicker and easier!

    You could just install the file format convert utility for 2003 so that you can open 2007 docs in Office XP or Office 2003:

    Hey dude - give me your email id and I will connect to you from my @microsoft.com address and help you with this. We have servers running this (internally) for precisely this type of use.

    Thanks!
