Need help installing Office 2007

by rdatrader / December 15, 2007 11:34 PM PST

I am trying to upgrade from Office 2000 to Office 2007 on my main computer, but am having no luck with Outlook (which is the mail reason for the upgrade. I have installed and removed 2007 twice without much luck with Outlook.
Each time I install 2007 I loose all my e-mail files and contacts.

I know there is something about an Exchange Server but am not having much success there. I have downloaded about 100 megs of files from Microsoft but don't know what to do with them.

If someone has a solution for this that I can understand I would very much appreciate the help.

I am running a P4 with lots of HD capacity, 2Gig of RAM with XP Pro, connected through a router to a laptop with XP Pro and a slow backup computer with XP Pro. The problem is, I think, that 2007 does not want to take Outlook files from Outlook 200 which is also on my laptop and backup.

Thanks in advance.

Most of us do not use Exchange Server.

As always it's good to speak with you again.

I am not getting any specific error message--I just loose all my Office 2000 e-mails, account settings and contacts and cannot figure out how to get them over to Office 2007.

It is as if I am starting with a blank slate--and never used Outlook before.

I have gone to the website you suggested and will attempt that process as soon as I can--It looks like it might do the trick.

Thanks again
