Does anyone know if the Tableau Packaged Workbooks created with Desktop 8.0 are compatible with Reader 7.0? I'm guessing no, since I can't open them with Reader 7.0.
No. Workbooks created with version 8 will need to use Reader 8.0. But that is available for free download here: http://www.tableausoftware.com/products/reader
