It was installed on another computer witin the last 3 months. I have asked many others about this & some it seems to be a 50/50 chance with 2003 & W7 as to it's working or not. I gave up & bought 2010...still like 2003 better as this has much more on it than I will ever need. Thanks for all your help...I really apppreciated it.
2003 will run fine on Win 7, I had it on 2 of my home machines. If you want to rule out the disk, copy the setup files off the CD to a directory on the computer and run the setup. If all the files copy OK, the disk is good, and you will be able to install from the hard drive.
