Looking at this click here no U don't. But it is only Office Xp pro.

Office XP will work with all operating systems from 95 up-wards. j.

XP Pro is recommended - not mandatory..:-)

Djohn is not correct in this case as the OS requirement is:

"Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 or later or Windows XP or later."

Djohn is probably thinking of these specifications (i.e. 2002):

I took the minimum specifications required from the link at 01:31 from smegs. If you scroll down to the bottom it says from 95 upward, sorry if this has caused confusion. j.

Just for interest my son, an IT support specialist, and his colleagues decided some time back that Office XP was a complete load of "b----t" - that's from people who work every day with a vast range of software - and that if 2003 is as bad.....:-)
