Installing Office97 on win2k workstation

By sjrobertson ·
I am attempting to install Access97 on a Win2K workstation. The reason for this is that our older units do not have the HD space to take an office 2000 install and we need to use access.

I am gettign a messege that is saying that an install can not be detected when i try and run it. IS there a way to get around this? Can ms office 97 products be loaded on a win2k Machine?

Thanks for any help.

Simon

Hi,
I've automated installs of office '97 onto win2k, and apart from some issues with the spellchecker and registry permissions I had no problems. Can you be more specific about the error message, and exactly what you are doing when it happens ???

Hi, I am also using Office97 on a Win2000 system. I did not encounter any of the problems that you described. I did have a thought, based on the message that you specified "that an install can not be detected" are you using an Office97 upgrade CDRominstead of an Office97 new installation CDRom? An upgrade would check to see if there was a previous installation that could be upgraded. Hope this helps.
