Is Windows Compatible with Microsoft Office 2002?

Hi,
I would like to know if Windows 7 is compatible with Microsoft Office XP Professional version 2002. If so, could you point me in the right direction where I could upgrade and/or install drivers? Your help is most appreciated. Thank you, Ray

The answer yes just follow my instructions below.


Insert the Office XP disk
Click Start > Computer
Open the Office XP computer
Right click the Setup file, click Troubleshoot compatibility
Follow the on screen wizard
Select a suitable version of Windows, Office XP is known to work in, try Windows XP SP2
and proceed with the installation.

Outlook is known to not save passwords, so please see the following:
Outlook not saving password:
Outlook on Vista (and Win7)

Personally, I would take the plunge and upgrade to Office 2003 or Office 2007 which both work with Windows 7.

Please give rep by clicking the middle icon (silver scales) near the top right. Hope This Helps You

Hi,
Thanks for all your help. I may take your advice and go with Office 2007. I am getting ready to to a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate. Currently I have Windows XP Pro. If you or anyone else have done this, I'm open to any advice/tips for installation. Thanks again, Ray
