Recommended Posts


what sort of installer is it? it says it doesnt support 9x but it support 2k it might work but some apis may need to be implemented so first you need to overcome the virsion checker

I can extract it with Winzip

basically contains an .msi , .cat and .cab file

the .msi file fails to install

I'm lost. :wacko:

you need to edit the msi file with orca 2 and remove the version checker so it can be installed

Downloaded it but it wont run on Win98 either.

I'll give it a go on my Windows XP machine tomorrow.

I took the Compatability patch and orca to my WinXp machine.

I installed orca

I extracted the compatibility .exe into a folder.

I opened the .msi file with orca

went to "Launch Control" in the Tables column

and deleted the sole line in its condition.

Saved and then closed Orca

Took the folder back to my Win98 machine, double clicked on the .msi and it installed :D

Now Word 2000 on Windows 98 can open Office 2007 open XML files :D

The fact Microsoft put a line in disabling Win9x support is pathetic!!!

I might repack it in an .exe and make it available for other Win98 users too.

it works perfectly thats good to know,

you must have downloaded orca 3

orca 2 is the version you would need to edit the msi on 98 but it doesnt matter now

Yes, this tip its correctly, open Dokument M$ 2007 OK! :thumbup

but NOT correctly writing (save) this format (error reading (!??) with saving format Office 2000)... :angry:

Good point.

I never tried saving it as a Word 2007 .docx file only as a .doc

Hmmm,

might need the brain trust to check this out for us?

or maybe its about time that I should be moving to OpenOffice
