Will Office XP work in Windows 7

By MNE ·
Hello, I have had several clients enquiring whether or not their old Office XP will work with Windows 7. Does anyone have an answer for this or tested it?
I don't currently have access to Office XP to test this myself.

I believe that it does.

Though I have not personally tried it but I can say for certain that Office 2003 works on 7 on both the RTM and the Trial Version that M$ currently has available for a 90 Day Trial Download.

Of course they would need Retail Versions or Volume Licenses of this Software to use it on a computer with 7 Loaded as the EOM Versions are tied to the original Hardware and are not Transferable to new computers.

Sounds good to me. By the sounds of things M$'s claims of better compatibility are actually right for once

I think that

this is the cutoff point though. I was able to create a Database, open a Word document, open an Excel Spreadheet, open Front Page and watch a Power Point presentation. You might do better with the recommended updates.

Good Luck

Appreciate the enthusiasm

Although I was concerned about Office XP as stated in the title of this question as opposed to Office 2003.
