Windows 7 / Office 2000

  L_Driver 19:18 12 Dec 2009

I am still using, AND very happy doing so, Office 2000. I am running XP and use all the progs in Off 2000 including Access and Outlook. Are there any issues installing Off 2000 on a Windows 7 system ? Asking cos after 9 years it`s time for a new PC I`m afraid.

googling seems to suggest problems even in xp mode and xp mode is only included in pro and ultimate.looking at the windows 7 compatibility center it says the office 2000 publisher is offering a paid upgrade to a compatible version

“Are there any issues installing Off 2000 on a Windows 7 system?”

All Microsoft Office will work with Windows 7

Office 97, 2000, XP, 2003, 2007, 2010

You will need to download and install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel,

and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats if you are using a Office program before Office 2007

Without the Office Compatibility Pack Office 2007 files will not open in Office 97, 2000, XP, &

At present I use Office 200 with Windows 7 and have no problem since installing the

Office Compatibility Pack Office 2007

Office 2007 files are automatically converted to the Office 2000 format

Like Ambra4 I had no problem installing and running Office 2000 on a W7 installation

That`s good news. Where do I get this compatibility pack ? To Falkyrn .. did you install this compatibility pack ? Do you use all the Off2000 programs inc. Access + Outlook ? Ta very much for these responses all.

Sorry all, I found this compatibility pack at Microsoft site BUT I`m a bit confused. This pack lets Me (as an Office 2000 user ) open for example word docs created in the Office 2007 xml format. That really wasn`t my query. Just need to know can I install ALL my Office 2000 progs on a Win7 system and experience no difficulties with reading or creating my own Office files?

I have Office 2000 installed on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit laptop and have no problems with Word, Excel, Publisher etc.

Install your Office 2000 on Win 7 system and enjoy.

The Office Compatibilty pack enables user to open Office 2007 files in earlier Office versions. My Windows 7 system came with the Compatibility Pack pre-installed. For my Vista system I downloaded it from MS web site.
