My question concerns Microsoft Office 2000 and Windows 7 compatibility. Windows 7 isn’t compatible with Office 2000. In a new system build with Windows 7, would a second operating system (Windows XP) on a separate partition or disc drive get around the compatibility issue?
You could set up Windows XP Mode instead, provided you have a copy of Windows 7 Professional or higher. No need for a separate partition and OS install...
My first impression was to use 64 bit Windows 7 Home Edition. I'm trying to keep costs down on this build. I will have to investigate using "Windows XP mode" in the Professional version, the Ultimate is too expensive for the budget. Thanks.
Office 2000 works perfectly with Windows 7 64. I have Office 2000 Small Business Edition installed on five Windows 7 machines currently. The installations are complete with SP's 1,2 and 3 and dozens of add ons and security updates.
That is confusing. My only source on this issue was the Microsoft Windows 7 web site. I really like Office 2000 and don't see any reason to replace it, if I don't have to. Could it be that Microsoft just wants the public to buy another Microsoft product?
Anyone else running Office 2000 with Windows 7 Home edition?
