    You're still using that old version? It must be a nightmare when people send you documents since they're more than likely in the 2007+ format. I have no idea if it will run in Windows 8, but I don't try to run versions of Office or other major software suites that are that old.

    Welcome to Eight Forums, chillydip.

    LOL! I use Office 2000 in 7. I tried loading it in 8, but wouldn't load. You can try. It might take. Just make sure you're following EUA.

    Welcome to you as well, although I see you joined last month.

    Just to let you know. Older Office suites will read newer Doc files with Microsoft Office Word Viewer one can download from MS for free.

    Create an XP virtual machine and install it in that.
