    Front Page and Publisher (Office XP)

    Although I have Office XP Professional, it did not include Front Page or Publisher. I still have Office 2000 and wonder if there is anything different about installing those when I have XP, i.e., can I still use Front Page 2000 and Publisher 2000 with XP or am I better off buying Front Page and Publisher XP.

    Thanks

    Re: Front Page and Publisher (Office XP)

    If already installed, you should have no problem using FP & Pub 2000. If however they are not installed, you have a decision to make. MS says that different versions of Office can be installed on the same computer, BUT they must be installed in the order oldest to newest AND in different directories. In other words, if the 2000 applications are not currently installed, you would have to uninstall XP Professional completely, install FP & Pub. 2000, and then re-install Office XP. Alternately, you can purchase the XP versions of the two products (if you can still find a vendor who sells them) and install.

    Thanks. I did think of doing that but what I also want/need to know is if it's possible to purchase Offce XP any longer that has Front Page included. My XP package at work includes Front Page; the one I have at home does not. I've looked on several websites and can't see where Front Page is included any longer; looks like a stand-alone product. Does anyone know?

    Office XP had a corporate package that included FP but I don't think any of their consumer packages did. I think you will have to purchase it (and Publisher) as stand-alones.

    FrontPage was certainly included with the Developer edition, which was just the Professional edition plus some developer tools, but I don't believe it was in the standard version. As far as I know, Publisher has always been a separate product and not included with Office.

    If one was to go to http://www.microsoft.com/office/editions/h...uy/default.mspx, one will find the listing of the different packages of Office 2003.

    The Pro version does include Publisher but NOT Front Page. I think Front Page has been dropped from the Office group.

    But that's 2003, Dave, not XP. They changed a bunch of stuff around in 2003 because of the push to XML and .Net. FrontPage was for building web pages and Publisher had an entirely different purpose, although goodness knows what its thrust is in 2003. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Sorry, misread the thread again <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>. I forget some people are not upgrading to 2003.

    Re: Front Page and Publisher (Office XP)

    As a trivia note, Office 2K "Premium" Edition (which was part of the Developer edition) included both FrontPage and Publisher (latter on a 2nd disk), plus as a bonus there was a Disk 3 & 4 for installing "Microsoft PhotoDraw". When I reinstalled Office 2K on this pc I didn't bother with disks 2, 3, or 4, as I've never had a need for these two applications. The Office XP Developer Edition included a disk for "Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage" (title implying FrontPage not considered part of "Standard" Office suite?). Publisher was not included (PhotoDraw, missed by 1 or 2 persons, of course was discontinued.)

    As for another trivia note, my copy of Premium (Professional Special Edition) came with a "Optical" mouse which I am still using. This package was for promotional use only and was wanted by a lot users.
