Only Windows 10 is supported on 7th gen and later processors.

Install Windows 10 Pro, turn on Hyper-V, and install a Windows 7 virtual machine. Then, run that office software in the W7 VM.

The truth of the matter is Intel has sold you out to Microsoft:

Microsoft is having a hard time getting users to adopt Windows 10 because of the data-stealing and loss of integrity.

On the other hand, Intel does not want Microsoft to use ARM CPU's

How do you think these type of deals happen? By selling out the consumer... There is zero technical reason why windows 7 doesn't work on this hardware. There are the following drivers for Windows 7:

USB3

NVMe

My company bought 12 of these fully loaded - we are happily returning them. If more people would do the same Intel would get the hint to stop treating its users as a pawn. This post will get deleted so copy and share and spread the word.
