Office 97 was created for Win 95, works well in Win 98. I am not sure of the later versions. For Win XP, some people find 'issues'. Perhaps you have to update the program with all the patches in order for it to work well in XP. Try running the Program Compatibility Wizard. As for the error message, what is the full and complete version ?
I load Office 97 pro and try to use word and I get the message to reinstall the program from the palce it was installed. Anyone got any answers???
