    Office 97 on Vista? (97/Vista)

    I recently bought a new laptop with Vista. I have played with the Office free trial and am debating on spending the money to buy the full version. However, for the time being I do not have the cash. Can I downlowd Office 97 Professional on Vista? All of my files are currently on 97 and I hate having to go back and forth between computers when I wish to update and send files such as resumes, etc.. What kind of problems might I expect?

    Hi there

    Office 97 will install OK on Vista, Word will work OK but beware Outlook won't. Not sure about Excel but I think this is a case of "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained!!"

    Obviously keep a back up of your files and have a go <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
