    re-install problem Office (Office 97)

    Hello all.

    I just had to do a QuickRestore to my computer due to various issues and vagaries. I have Office 97 and use it constantly. However, when I went to re-install it after the QuickRestore, the re-install was disallowed because I have the "upgrade" version and Office 97 could not find the prerequisite software already loaded onto my computer. It has been so long since I bought 97 that I have no idea what the prerequisite software was! Can anyone give me a hand here?

    TIA for any advice you can give!

    -Marc

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You will have to have a disk available for one of the following products:
    - Microsoft Works (prior versions)
    - Microsoft Word for MS-DOS (2.0 or later)
    - Microsoft Word for Windows (95 or prior)
    - WordPerfect for MS-DOS (4.0 to 5.1)
    - WordPerfect for Windows (5.1 to 6.0)
    - Microsoft Excel for Windows (95 or prior)
    - Microsoft Multiplan, all versions
    - Lotus 1-2-3 for MS-DOS (2.01 to 3.4)
    - Lotus 1-2-3 for Windows (1.0 to 4.01)
    - PowerPoint for Windows (2.0 to 95)
    - Microsoft Schedule+ (7.0)

    Thanks, guys! It was PowerPoint 97 that I had installed prior to installing Office 97. Now all I have to do is find that disk.......
