MS office 2000

By mdclibbing ·
I am running both XP SP2 and Vista on different drives in the same PC, I would like to access Outlook from both OS's. Is this possible. Vista tells me to run setup for office when I try to any office programs from the XP location, even in XP compatability mode. I'm afraid I'll end up with email scattered in two places and need to change OS's just read tham, or always backup and restore the .pst files. I know word and excel are simple to do by telling the software were to save the file in the options.

If using PSTs, then you will have seperate copies of your emails. Ideally, you would not use PSTs and read email direct from the Mail server (e.g. MS Exchange).

Alternatively, you could put the PST in a shared folder and configure Outlook to use the PST in the shared folder but you can't use Email on both PCs at the same time.
