install microsoft office 2007 on windows 98SE?


Recommended Posts

If there a reason why Microsoft prevent the Ultimate Steal Office 2007 from installing on Windows 98 SE other than the fact that they don't support it? Why go through all the hard work and extra code to prevent Office 2007 from installing on Windows 98 SE? I mean they don't have to support the version and if I install it on windows 98 SE, it should be at my own risk. I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work on Windows 98 SE. What would happen if I install the office 2007 on Windows 98 SE? I am using Office XP on my windows 98 SE and it work very well. I just brought the Ultimate steal because it was available to student for $60. I hope that $60 was not a waste....

Since July 2006, all of Microsofts Premium products have distanced themselves from Win9x.

You might be able to force it to install by using ORCA (http://www.msfn.org/board/-t83058.html&view=findpost&p=568281#entry568281) to remove its LaunchConditions.

Personally I'd recommend an even bigger steal... OpenOffice 2 --- http://www.openoffice.org

Its free and does almost everything Office 2007 does and more!!!
