Two years ago I upgraded from M$ Office ’97 and M$ Publisher ’97 to M$ Office XP and M$ Publisher XP.
The IBM Aptiva which I then used ran W98se on a K600 processor, died last week.
A new workhorse has been put together for me by a local company called MMTIW, a very basic PC running Windows XP etc.
When I came to install M$ Publisher XP, I could not find the original disk set and the Upgrade Version would not install as I did not have the Qualifying Product. I have the M$ Office ’97 set so there was no problem there.
Now I hold no particular brief for M$ Publisher but need to run my copy of it, as I have a considerable quantity of material, in current use, stored as .pub files.
What I hope to find out is:
Can one procure an old copy of this software and run it as the Qualifying Product?
How? Where? How much?
Any other useful hints would be really appreciated.
