Windows 7: Installing Office XP on New Windows 7 Laptop

19 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

Thanks to everyone who's posted on this one. Thinks took a turn earlier today when I tried to install itunes on the laptop and it wouldn't install.. set the bells ringing that my earlier thought of it being an issue with the Windows installer might be true. I did a full factory re-set and lo and behold, Office XP installed perfectly.. as did itunes!!

So thanks all- I''ve passed on the info about the Student Edition maybe being cheaper at Uni... A week today, I lose my baby....but gain a room!!!!!

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
Office XP will install and run perfectly -- install via "run as administrator".

Normally Home users are "already" the administrator so install goes without a problem.

Note that Office XP WILL require activation so if you've already activated it use the telephone activation and sya you've upgraded ONE machine to Office 2007 so you want to move Office XP to another machine.

No probs.

In fact even Office 97 will work fine on W7.
