Preferred Solution: Documents that contain details and settings information for Office 2000: Feb 2

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Does anyone know where the "Registered To" information is stored in the registry for Office 2000.Also, is there a simple tool available to convert a name into hexidecimal code?What I am trying to do is to change the Registered to information on the splash screen of the Office applications and also to change the user information in Tools\User info in a login script.Any help would be appreciated.RegardsFitshase

I plan on doing a fresh install of XP on a computer that is running Windows 2000. If I was to copy the 2000 Documents and Settings folder onto a network drive, then install XP, then copy the Documents and Settings folder back to XP (overwriting the default installed one), would this work?

If not, could you give some insight on which folders I can copy back.


Answer:Documents and Settings: 2000 = XP?

First, I would just copy parts of it:
Documents and Settings/Your_name\Cookies
Documents and Settings\Your_name/Your_name\Favorites
Documents and Settings\Your_name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook (or wherever your email and address book are located)
C:\Documents and Settings\Your_name\My Documents

If you copy the whole Documents and Settings folder, you'll end up with junk you don't need, and several files that can't be copied (NTUSER.DAT, NTUSER.DAT.LOG, INDEX.DAT are a few).

Having just reinstalled Office 2000 Pro after a Hard Drive failure I have a minor problem with the New Office Document shortcut that appears on the top of my Start Menu on the Desktop.

If I click on it, instead of going directly to the New Office Document dialog box, I get a referencing of my A: drive, and the message "The feature you are trying to use is on a CDrom or other removable disk...", and a request to insert the Office 2000 disc. If I just click CANCEL I get the New Office Document dialog that I was looking for.

The other s/cut, Open Office Document, gives no problems, and the Properties for both s/cuts are referencing the correct targets. et cetera.

Any ideas how to cure this as I am always needing to use this s/cut?
I know I could probably just delete and re-do, but I'd like to get rid of the source of this error first.


Answer:MS Office 2000 New Documents shortcut glitch

Not sure, Mike.

It probably has something to do with the way you installed Office. I always use *run all from my hard drive*, so I never run into these problems.

Hi all -- Running Word 2000 in Windows XP Home with all updates (I believe) current in both programs.

I work on lots of protected documents, some of which are in table format. When I attempt to make deletions to portions of the document which I have typed, I get a prompt saying: "Delete Block? No (Yes)".

Is there any way to turn off this prompt? This has only happened since I reinstalled Word 2000 on my new computer -- didn't perform this way on my old computer (which might have been an error condition then -- but I got to like it).

Giving thanks to you in advance for all your help. On this Thanksgiving Eve, wishing you many reasons to be thankful in your own life!

I have Office 2000 and I like it, I moved it over to my new Windows 7 laptop and moved all my Word docs over and now I can't do a thing with my word files - they are all read only. Can anyone help me please?

Answer:Windows 7 Office 2000 All Word documents are read only - can you help

How did you move them? Did you copy therm to CD/DVD then copy them to the new computer?

The easiest way to fix this is to open an Elevated Command Prompt. Change to the Documents directory and run the following command:

attrib -r /s /d *.*

That will reset the Read Only attribute on all files and folders in the current directory and all sub directories.

Click on Start, type cmd. Right click on cmd.exe at the top of the list and select Run as Administrator.
Type cd \users\yourusername\documents and press Enter.
Type attrib -r /s /d *.* and press Enter.

Hello world,

I am required to update staffs MS office 2000 to office 2003, can i copy the users .pst, .dic and autocorrect options and replace the files in office 2003 or is there an easier method?

I have to transfer the office 2000 users files / settings to a new clean updated install of office 2003 pro on a differnet / newer p.c.

The operating system these are to be transfered too is different being XP Pro sp3 - from a couple of exisisting Xp home SP2 and several win 2000 pro sp4.
I need to do this for these particular apps / files all are from office 2000 - Word, Excel and Outlook files to Office 2003.

I had a look at ms office site but like most ms stuff, I find its overly complicated with too much junk on screen, and couldnt find a way to sign up easily, and when i did it said i wasnt signed up even though at the top its said signed in..and the page hadnt been up long enough to expire... had a couple of searches but i got frustrated with the site. So put a post here instead.

Really appreciate the assist with this query. :confused

Thanks in advance for appropriate links, info etc.

Answer:Help Office 2000 to 2003 transfer user settings

o.k update..

I have found that i can use the files and settings transfer wizard for the Xp home units, as most of these are already office 2003.

The one issue that remains is upgrading the O/S Win 2000 Pro SP4 units, which are using the Office 2000 Pro these settings need to be used with Xp PRO and with Office 2003.

1) I still need to transfer the user settings for, outlook 2000 - this means address book contacts and emails..pst files to office 2003. Can I successfully use the import / export feature for the personal folders between these versions of office 2000 / 2003?

2) I need to do the same for Office 2000 Word files in particular, the autocorrect, dic and custom.dic files Can these be transfered - the method would be great.

3) Any of the other 2000 office apps along the way. Such applications as Publisher settings, powerpoint settings everything etc..

4) Also is there a file and settings transfer wizard equivalent in Windows 2000 pro?

Thanks again in advance for taking the time to read this and for any info.

I've experienced this problem twice in the past week. Here is my current problem:

New Windows 8 computer
Moved Office 2010 install from old computer to new computer
Copied all documents to new computer by installing the old drive in the new computer (NTFS to NTFS)

When trying to open any DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, or PPTX files that are stored in the Documents folder I get permission errors. Word will open an RTF file just fine. If I try to use any Office programs to save a file to the Documents folder, I also get permission errors. I can move the file to the Desktop and work with it just fine. I can then move it back to the Documents folder.

Here are the errors when trying to open files:
Word - Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges
Excel - 'C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Book1.xlsx' could not be found
Powerpoint - The path or file name for C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Presentation1.pptx is invalid.

When I try to use one of these programs to save to the Documents folder, I get the following error:

Can I upgrade Office 2000 to Office XP, while still running Windows 2000?

I could use some of the features of Office XP, and would really like to retain my Windows 2000 environment. Do you think I could make this upgrade in Office?


Answer:Can I upgrade Office 2000 to Office XP, while still running Windows 2000?

Office XP can run on Windows 2000. Even though the operating systems and office suites have the same naming convention, that doesn't mean that they have to match up (Windows 2000-Office 2000, Windows XP-Office XP).

Found this article at Microsft Kitchen giving a hint at details for the next Office Software allready in the works.

Goodbye Office 2010; hello Office 15! After some extensive (see: exhaustive) research, I?ve unearthed enough to confidently say that Office 15 planning is not only under way, but thriving as well. Amongst all the information are implications as to when Microsoft aims for its release, some of what Microsoft is specifically focusing on in their plans, mentions of specific Office 15 applications, services, and more! Follow along as I take you from the earliest mentions of Office 15 back in September 2009 up through to the very latest of what?s floating around from job postings, employee profiles, documents, and more. If you don?t feel like delving into the whole post, I?ve summarized the key points at the bottom of the post for quick review.
It?s Official: Office 15, the Codename
Beginning with a bit of history, I?ve been keeping my eye on Office 15 since September 2009 when I first noticed what seemed to be an employee referring to the next version of Office as ?Office 15″ and ?Office 2013.? A couple of months afterwords, I made note of a program manager mentioning Office 15 in an interview on Microsoft?s website. Shortly thereafter, references were also being discovered by MJ Foley and others.

any suggestions?

oh, I did a google for solutions and various pages often suggested I turn off simple file sharing, but the option is non existant under my file/view menu...

Answer:Access Denied to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents

It sounds to me as though the administrator has made that directory path private. Are you the admin, and if so, are you logged into a user account with admin rights? If all else fails, reboot and log into the Administrator account and go to the control panel/users and change your preferred account status. While you're there, unlock the problem path to allow all users to view.

Good Luck!

When a hardware or software problem occurs, you face a crash, your application is not working properly or your IE got crashed several times. When all such nasty thing occurs, Windows collects information from your computer that describes the problem and then creates a problem report.
Problem report details can include the name of a program that has stopped working, the date and time that a problem occurred, or the version of the program that has encountered the problem. Sending a problem report allows Windows to notify you if a solution is available.
If a solution is not available, you might be asked to provide additional details about the problem. Your participation can help Microsoft create new solutions. Additional details can include files or parts of files that help identify the problem or explain how it has affected your computer.
Windows does not intentionally collect any personal information about you. You can view the additional details in a problem report before sending it to Microsoft.

I'm not sure how this happened, or just what the proper vocabulary really is, but here's my problem.

I very carefully direct and downloaded files to a subfolder (DownloadsTempMD) under My Documents on a Data drive.

I'd really very much prefer to be able to sort downloaded files by name, date, the usual Details format.

For some reason Windows 7 Professional x64 has elected to conclude that anything I download must be for my entertainment, ergo it must be sorted by Title, Contributing Artists, Album. This may be a great boon to some, but it is a PITA to me. If I've downloaded an installation file, I want the most recent file at the top of the display where I can find it.

Is there a way to turn off this 'feature' that reminds my way too much of 'Clippy.'

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

Answer:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.

My girlfriend logs on with her user name (Mary) at the XP Pro welcome screen. Hers is the only user name shown. In Control Panel/Windows Accounts she is listed as the only user.

In Windows Explorer (C:/Documents and Settings) there are four folders:

1. All Users
2. Config.msi (empty)
3. Default User
4. Ex-husband?s name (it used to be his computer, so somehow he is still around)

All the user data of my girlfriend is actually saved in folder four. Also:

a) At the top of the Windows Explorer tree the ?My Documents folder? points to Ex-husband?s ?My Documents? folder.

b) Later in the tree there is another folder called ?Mary?s Documents? which also points to Ex-husband?s ?My Documents? folder and contains the same files.

So my questions are:

1. Can I safely change folder four to my girlfriend's name? Should/can this be done in Windows Explorer, or somewhere else?

2. Can/should I delete the folder called ?Mary?s Documents? which simply reproduces the files in Ex-husband?s ?My Documents?.

3. Can I safely delete the folders ?All Users? and ?Default User?, which do not contain my girlfriend?s user data?

4. Can I safely delete the empty ?Config.msi? folder?

5. I would like to keep the ?My Documents? folder which shows at the top of the folder tree as it is convenient for my girlfriend to find.

I hope this makes sense. Any suggestions much appreciated.


Answer:'Documents and Settings' and 'My Documents' query

1) I wouldn't, but it can probably be's hard to redirect those stupid Windows links. You could create your own shortcut to "Mary's Documents", copy the contents of the ex-husband's folder to the Mary's documents, then you should be able to delete it.

2) For safety's sake I wouldn't, but you could give it a shot... (or do what I said above)

3)No, they are default folders that WIndows uses for some mysterious purposes.

4)Definitely not!

5)Go to to find a registry hack which will let you delete the My Documents folders. Then add the new shortcut above.

Remember, if you delete something you shouldn't have, you can restore it from the recycling bin!:grinthumb

I have a drive that had Vista Home Premium on it & NTFS as the file system. The drive went bad with over 100 K bad sectors. Preformed a hard drive recovery; After several days I managed to remap all the bad sectors so that I could read the drive when booting from a XP boot CD or a UBCD cd.

Now When I view the drives directory structure I can browse most of what is listed except for the Documents & Settings folder. When I try that one I get the message "Access Denied". I tried getting into the properties to see if I can change the properties but the Security tab did not show up.

I am a lot more familiar with XP than Vista. Is there an added security feature Vista has on the Documents & Setting folder that only Vista can open it.

question... i seem to have a bunch of crap in this folder that always brings the trojan in and hides it with files that have come from popups... can i delete everything in this folder and not cause problems for my computer

Answer:C:\Documents and Settings\-------\Local Settings\Temp

Hi futrade

Yes, you can delete everything in the Temp folder.

The best time to empty the Temp folder is right after a reboot, some programs place files in the Temp folder and will deny the deletion since the file is currently being used.

If you want, you can send the items to the Recycle Bin for a few days, if something seems to be running differently after emptying the Temp folder, you can restore the items from the Recycle Bin.

If any of the files in the Temp folder is a virus or trojan, obviously, you would not to keep those hanging around, so run a couple virus scans, links below.

Run an online Anti-Virus scan from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites

Answer:changing office 97 registration details

Welcome to TSG!
Not so good news here! Office 97 and its predecessor take the owner registration information given at time of install and hard codes it into the main program thus only an uninstall\reinstall will correct the situation. Office program version after 97 this was changed to accommodate many screaming owners who have sold or given away their Office product and wished it changed.

If you do a search on "Office 97 owner registration change" you will find many newsgroup articles supporting the above.

Has anyone ever have trouble signing a VBA project on Access 2000?
(I'm using Office 2000 premium.)

I've done the following:
1) installed digital signature in Office Tools
2) generated my certificate using Selfcert
3) oened my Access DB and went into the VB editor
4) opened the Tools> menu

Result: No "Digital Signature" selection was available. in the Tools menu

Looked in VB editors in Excel and Word…
"Digital Signature" *was* right there in the "Tools" menu.
Just not in Access.

In Access, went to:
View >Toolbars>Customize…>Commands>Tools
and whaddaya know… There's "Digital Signature" right there!

BUT guess what? I can't drag in onto any tool bar or open menu.

Does anyone know what's going on or has this happened to them?
I looked in Office/Access Q&A forum on the MSDN website and actually found similar posts but the only suggestions were to try the things I've already listed above.

I searched the MS knowledge base but found no pertinent answers. The Office on-line help gives little/no help for digital signatures.

Compatability mode you shouldnt have to use to install updates to Office, why its not recognising your version is a mystery, but as you can use Microsoft Update in lieu of having to goto Office Update, see if that recognises your installed office and lists updates for you.

We purchased 6x secondhand Dell Vostro 230 PCs from a business that was closing down.
All have Office Enterprise 2007 installed. Using Belarc, it has been identified that all computers have the same product key. After Office was wiped on one, when the PC was 'factory reset', it could not be reinstalled and a call to MS resulted in being told we need to buy a retail copy, as we could not provide the licensing details.
With Office Professional 2007 costing several hundred dollars, any suggestions to circumvent this, as the PCs were a legitimate purchase?

Answer:Reinstalling Office 2007 Enterprise without licensing details

Hi there.

Why not just take an IMAGE from one of the other computers and restore it on to the "broken one". They are all "Identical machines" !!!.

When you get asked for Windows re-activation just enter the product number of the original computer I would assume these machines have either Enterprise or Pro version of windows installed on them.

I'd even suspect that as they are identical machines you wouldn't even have to activate Windows again !!! -- but to comply with the EULA you really should enter the ORIGINAL product key --so do it via CHANGE PRODUCT KEY (or type SLUI 3 from the Run command).

Office won't need activation -- no hardware change.

The BELARC data should give you the product key of the ORIGINAL windows key for the "Broken" machine. Alternatively the windows key might be on a sticker on the machine itself or perhaps on the invoice when you purchased the machines.

(To image the machines use Free Macrium to copy image to external device and boot from USB / DVD)

When I click on the Office Assistant button or try to use a wizard I get this error message:

Not sure if its the same thing with office 2003 but go into options, advanced, and see if you can find something like compatibility options or layout.

I chose options to show hidden files and prtected system files. I turned of the sharing wizard option also.

I searched again for "Documents and Settings" and it appeared in the search window, on clicking I got the error:

I am having problems with both of these programmes. MS Office 2000 Pro installs the 1st CD without any problem, but when I try to install the 2nd CD (containing MS Publisher)it gets to 'Installing MS office 2000' 'Please wait while Windows conigures MS Office 2000' At this stage the installation stops and it is necessary to restart the computer. With MS Publisher 2000, I have installed MS Publisher 98, MS Publisher 2000 sticks at the same place as Office 2000.My operating system is Windows 98se. I have no problems with an older computer, but my newer one has the above problem.Can anyone suggest a fix?

Is the troublesome computer a new, incredibly fast, state of the art pride and joy?Reason I ask is that Win98, good as it certainly is, could fail with memory allocation/configuration and sheer CPU speed.For instance RAM in W98SE is 512Mb top whack

I Need Help!
I was wondering if it is a issue to delete files in "Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp". I am really looking if it is safe to delete the "Documents and Settings\Kenny Hartwick\Local Settings\Temp" files.


Answer:Should I Delete "Documents and Settings\Username/Local Settings\Temp"

I don't know who Kenny Hartwick is, but deleting temp files is NOT a problem. Just get his permission, willya.


edit: if you click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup you'll run a nice little routine that lets you select those, among other, files to remove as well as a file compactor for rarely used files.

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated
Office 2003 SP 3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

Windows XP & IE 8 .
Whenever I add an attachment to my emails, and even here on your website when I uploaded the attached pics, the 'Choose to Upload' pop-up window containing (in this case) my pics ALWAYS (but never used to) opens in the Details mode instead of Thumbnails where I can actually view the pics to be attached prior to attaching them.
I would like the default setting for this occurrence to obviously be in the Thumbnails mode.
In a related issue I would also like to be able to load more than one pic at a time when attaching pics to emails, etc...
Is there such a setting?
Thanks for the assistance.

Answer:Default Settings for 'Choose File To Upload', Displays 'Details' vs 'Thumbnails'

The default is list, not details and no you can't change it that I know of and I'm pretty sure if not absolutely. I wish there was. One of those silly Windows things.
As to your second question, some websites employ technology that allows multiple uploads. The flash uploader here for instance. It's not something in XP that one can change.

I have been a user of Office 2000 since it's inception and always downloaded and applied all service packs, etc. to keep it up-to-date.
Recently a friend had me try Office 2003 to see if I liked it better. I did some data backups, uninstalled 2000 and installed 2003. After several weeks of trial and error I have decided to go back to the simplicity of Office 2000. I mainly use Word, Excel, Outlook, and Power Point.
I want to completely uninstall 2003 and remove all traces of it then install 2000.
Is this possible to go back to a previous version without any problems?
I know where all of my Word and Excel files are stored and will back them up to be reintroduced to 2000. What about my Outlook files, namely the personal folders containing my address book and existing emails, sent items and deleted items? Is a newer .pst file created using Outlook 2003 recognizable by the older Outlook 2000?Any suggestions?

Today, I install Office 2003 on a machine which has Office 2000 on it. According to advices gave on this forum and microsoft web site. This can be done, but I find they are not happy to live together.All other applications are OK but not Word. When I used 2003 and want to back to use 2000, 2000 ask the set up disk to set it up, it find something on disk and work OK. After use 2000 and I want to go to use 2003, again 2003 also ask for disk for setup. Basically, everytime switch from one to another, it ask for set up. This only happens for Word. Any advices would be appreciated.

A bit of background for my issue/question:

In order to sync my Windows Mobile phone to my computer I have to have Microsoft Outlook installed. However, my version is Office 2000. I cannot use Virtual XP on this particular computer (it's just a netbook) to use Office 2000 that way, but I did try that on my other computer, which runs Virtual XP beautifully. Unfortunately, it would not allow the syncing of the phone via the Virtual Machine. The more research I do on this issue, it seems Office 2000 is not really compatible with Win7, thus why I tried the Virtual XP thing in the first place.

So, my actual question is:

Does anyone have experience with Office 2003 and Win7? Are there issues running that? I'm sure Office 2007 is recommended, but I'm just looking for any insight anyone might have to offer from your own personal experience with running Office 2003 and Windows 7.

Just some additional information I thought I would put out there and if any one has any insight/solutions into these, that is welcome as well!

Windows 7 does install and run Office 2000, there are just some annoying quirks:

1. I had to copy over wab32.dll and wab32res.dll from C:\Program Files\Common Files\System into C:\Windows\System32 to get the address book to work in order to send messages or really do anything useful in Outlook.

2. I cannot select Microsoft Outlook as the default mail program. It doesn't even come up in the default programs list. That is why I cannot sync my phone up, because it... Read more

Hi all,
I recently bought a nice new HP computer. Since I have MS Office 2000 and I hate to upgrade because my other computer has this on it (and I know how to use it all!), I installed MS Office 2000 on the new computer.

Problem I am having is that an error message comes up that says:

Unknown error Ox9EE4011D An error occured while attempting to open the windows address book. Unable to find the WAB DLL.

I am pretty sure this is because MS Outlook 2000 is not supported by Win 7.

I have tried a few things with no luck.

I navigated to [C:\Program Files\Common Files\System]
I found the files wab32.dll and wab32res.dll, copied these
and pasted them to [C:\Windows\System32]

Right now when I look in this file [C:\Windows\System32], I see:


When I open up Outlook, it wants me to set it up and enable macros each time I open it.
When I do this I get the error message above, then it will download all messages as it would normally.
Problem is, just can send out any email.

I can't unload and reload Outlook without having to unload the entire MS Office 2000 because there is no seperate program in the remove program que.

Somewhere it said to go to the run window and register the dll's by using the following command at the run prompt.
[regsvr32 wab32.dll]
Tried this, but it would not let me do it (or I didn't do it right.

I have a few year's worth of e-mails with order confirmations, travel data, business communications, and archives going back an equally long period of time. If I buy Office 2007 Professional, how do I preserve all I currently have. Is there a export and restore function which exactly replaces the e-mails (current & archived), contacts, etc. Do I need to purchase the full version, or is it just as good to get the "upgrade" version? If I am accustomed to 2000, is it a good idea to even consider upgrading?

Thanks in advance for guidance.

Answer:Upgrading from Office 2000 to Office 2007

If you are going to upgrade or perform a full install of a new version of Outlook its advisable to get those emails, contacts etc backed up. This link shows you how to perform a backup of Outlook 2000 and what files to look out for. If you are happy with your current version of Outlook is there a real need to upgrade? One consideration I would make would be if Microsoft still provide updates for your version of Outlook, these updates are really important to fix security flaws.Hope that helps.

Word has stopped working in my borrowed copy of Office 2007 on my laptop. I don't have the installation disk. But I do have my Office 2000 disk which I use on my desktop computer. Would it cause any problems if I removed Office 2007 from the laptop and installed Office 2000? I know that would be moving backward, but Office 2000 really is good enough for me. Thanks for any help.

Answer:Replace Office 2007 with Office 2000?

Make sure you uninstall Office 2007 completely before installing 2000.

You may need the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack to access any documents that you have created with Office 2007.

Okay so maybe you can install Office 2000 and Office 97 using different directories. I do beleive this. BUT what I did was install Office 2000 .. removing Office 97 before I realized that I would need at least ACCESS 97 for a existing shared database. So I tried to install ACCESS 97 (using a different Drives 97 on C and 2000 on D) but after install and trying to run .. I get a message saying it could not start because it did not have the license for it on the machine.
I have gone so far as to completely uninstall both versions and reinstall Office 97 only but get same message. I also used Fix-It Utilities 99 to clean up the registry. But I am still coming up with this problem .. no licenses found for Access 97.

Last spring, I had to fresh install XP Pro on my laptop and thought that it would be a good idea to buy Office 2003 Professional to replace my old Office 2000. I love it and find that I am very frustrated with the 2000 Pro on my office computer. So, I just bought another 2003 Pro and I have no idea how to proceed to upgrade. Do I uninstall all of the current Office programs? Do I simply stick the disk in the CD drive and let Windows figure it out? Do I build a fire in the parking lot and do a dance? I was successful with a new installation when I did the fresh install. But I do not want to lose all of my Outlook e-mails attachments, and contacts. I have benefited a great deal from the help here in the past. I hope that someone can guide me in the simplest possible way. I am a relative novice/greenhorn.

Answer:Up grade MS Office 2000 Pro to MS Office 2003 Pro?

Each MS Office a distinct entity, there really is no such thing as an "upgrade" from one version to another.

You could conceivably install each and they would both work, because they are independent of each other.

I suggest uninstalling the version you don't like...install the version that you do like . That's what I do.

You will need the CD for each to uninstall or install.

A friend of my wife's has 'consulted' me about something I know nothing about (now that's unusual since I keep telling people I know everything!).

Her computer is nearly as old as mine and is a Dell with 98SE, PentiumIII, 128MB RAM and 12GB HDD (nearly 10GB free space). It is mostly used for word processing and emailing but not for serious surfing.

It currently has Office 97 which includes Word (or is it the other way round?) Her employer has offered to upgrade her in stages to Office 2000 and then 2003, so that she can do more work from home.

What she wants to know is whether the newer programs can be installed without first uninstalling 97 and risking the loss of the documents she has created with 97 (and with the MS Graphics program),which are currently stored in My Documents. I thought it would be OK but don't actually know, hence this post.

She has plenty of HD space but I wonder if the other system requirements of the newer programs would make the upgrade difficult or even impossible.
