    Off 97 on Windows XP SP2 (97)

    Hi,

    I have some internal customers that are concerned about their legacy Access 97 (I assume SR2) application running on Windows XP SP2 which we are migrating to now.

    Any running Office 97 Prof or Access 97 on Windows XP SP2? Any migration issues, or gotchas?

    Thank you in advance.

    Jimmy Lee

    You shouldn't have serious problems running Office 97 on Windows XP.

    Thank you, Hans. That's a relief.

    I did fin on the newsgroups that installing Office 97 on SP2 is problematic but the 'solution' is to have Office 97 installed before putting SP2 on.

    Thanks again,

    Jimmy

    Hi Jimmy

    We have few machines with the Office 97 family loaded on to Win XP machines (but only a few) as they are using legacy systems. No serious issues have been reported

    Jerry,

    Thanks.

    I think the users will want to do some testing to satisfy themselves.
