Upgrading to Office 2007 from Office 2000

Upgrading to Office 2007 from Office 2000

Post by RWQ » Mon, 12 Nov 2007 13:37:01


I upgraded my laptop from Windows 2000 to XP. When I loaded Office 2000, my
laptop didn't work properly. I uninstalled it and the laptop works fine. Is
there away to load Office 2000 on XP so I can upgrade to office 2007? Or do I
have to purchase the full-version?

You do not need to install Office 2000 to install the upgrade version of
Office 2007. Just insert the Office 2000 installation CD in the drive when
you are asked for a qualifying product during installation of Office 2007.

Since Office 2000 is compatible with Windows XP, you may want to understand
why your laptop did not "work properly" with Office 2000. Else, you may
have the same problem if you install Office 2007. Just a guess, but since
you just upgraded to Windows XP, you may need to upgrade some of your
hardware drivers or you may not have enough memory installed.

Thanks for the tips. With office installed, the laptop essentiallly came to a
halt. Application Windows wouldn't open or close completely, and it wasn't
reponding even with ctrl-alt-del. I'll check the memory and drivers.
