Office upgrades on Vista

  Cara2 22:57 15 Nov 2008

I am buying a new desktop PC which will have Vista Home Premium installed.

I currently have Microsoft Word 2000. Will I be able to upgrade to Word 2007 or I will have to buy the entire software again? Suspect that my version may not install on Vista to enable an upgrade.

YOu will have to buy it again - take a look at the student edition

Thanks a lot for your replys.

Seems I will have to up the budget! The software I need will have to include Outlook, so more research to be done.

seems odd they bundled powerpoint instead of outlook.

I thought Outlook did not exist on Vista now

Word 2000 should install on Vista click here
But it may be cheaper to go for a Student licence, if you are eligible, than an upgrade.
Vista has Windows Mail instead of Outlook Express and Vista also has Windows Calendar and this may be the reason that Outlook is not included in the standard student edition but is in other versions.
I run Office 2003 with Outlook on Vista.

If you meet the eligibility requirements then the 'Ultimate Steal' is fantastic value, just under £50 with install CDs, £40 without click here
