I had no problems installing Office 97 on either computer I have,
using
Vista Home Premium. It is working great, even including Outlook in
the
install.

Why would you even BOTHER with Office 97 when Open Office 2.4 and
Thunderbird 2 are SO much better and FREE?

Your opinion, bozo.

Maybe the OP installed it because it's a familiar product that meets
the needs.

Ya THINK???


Hmm An Office suite that is TEN years old, is clunky, has many security
holes, is just plain OLD. Has far less functions than OO and more
importantly, has had NO updates for YEARS....do I need to go on?

A rational, well thought-out reply.....

I thought his/her first reply to you was "rational and well thought
out". You jumped in on someone who is happy with their installation
and recommended something else when your opinion wasn't asked for.
