Will WinME run Office 97???

By adam.m ·
Every time I try to install Office 97 onto a laptop running winME, I get a message saying that I can't install an earlier version of the operating system than the one currently installed. To do so I will have to remove the one currently installed.I am not installing an OS! It's just Office 97! Has anyone else had this problem and if so, how did u get past it?

I installed Office97 on my ME box without this problem. I would "Explore" this CD you're using and make absolutely certain that somebody hasn't swapped disks. I'm the last one to avoid picking up on an opportunity to slag Microsoft, but in this casetheir installs usually at least start off right.

I had this problem on a desktop computer. The solution was to remove the MS Word program that comes with the PC. That vesion of MS Word is Office 2000. Go into add/remove programs on your control panel and remove all Microsoft products that look like they are part of Office. Then try to install Office 97 again. Good Luck.
