NVivo 7

Released in 2006, NVivo 7 combined subtle analysis with linking, searching and modeling. It was designed for handling rich text-based information and deep levels of analysis.

Our NVivo 10 for Windows software supersedes NVivo 7. It includes the features of NVivo 7 and much more - including the ability to work with PDFs, surveys, web and social media data, photos, video and audio files. NVivo 10 also allows you to open and work with projects you've developed in NVivo 7.

Features and benefits

Although NVivo 7 isn't a current product you can still read about its features and benefits in the NVivo 7 product brochure. Or you can download the full list of NVivo 7 features.


Supported versions of QSR software include the latest products (NVivo 10 for Windows, NVivo for Mac and NVivo Server 10) plus the previous two versions (NVivo 9 and NVivo 8). This means that NVivo 7 users can no longer contact our support team for one-on-one assistance.
