    Some persons on this site have said that they use Word 2000 with Win7,
    but what I would like to know is whether anyone has downloaded Word 2000
    onto a PC which already has Win7 installed without there being any
    hassle during the download or subsequently.

    I've installed Office 2000 Premium (including Word 200) onto my PC
    running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. No problems thus far, and it also
    integrated with Acrobat 8 Professional, installing the extra menu and
    buttons for creating PDFs from within Word.

    As an aside, I only installed Word, Excel and Powerpoint. I've not tried
    installing FrontPage or PhotoDraw (remember that?), as they'd be
    superfluous to my needs (got Adobe CS3 Web Premium, so I've covered in
    those departments).

    I have "003 But If you have a problem installing Then right click the setup
    exe and select Properties > compatibility tab and set to Xp or vista what
    ever you know it works with.

    I have got Disc 1 Microsoft Works Suite 2000 setup, which includes
    Microsoft Word 2000. What do you think of my chances with that? Anyday
    now I will order a new desktop and I could have Word 7000 installed at a
    reduced price, but I rarely use Word.

  5. Word 7000? Is this a secret new version, or did you mean Word 2007?

    Heh...I use Office 2007, mostly because I need the compatibility with what I
    use at work. Otherwise, I'd just use OpenOffice.

    What do you mean by "download"? I installed Office 2000 on a PC that
    already had Win7 on it. The installation went just fine, and Word 2000
    works just fine. Been using it for a couple of months now.

    Thanks everyone. I have got my answer loud and clear and I will install
    it with confidence.

    Yes, silly me, I should have said Word 2007. Thanks.

  10. I installed the Greek edition of Word 2000 on a computer running
    Windows 7. At first, some of the dialogue boxes in Word 2000 were
    coming out as gibberish. That was solved by specifying, in Windows,
    Greek as the "language to use for non-Unicode applications." This
    didn't affect the normal appearance of English in other applications.

    Word 2000 is generally Unicode-compatible, but not 100% (certain
    dialogue boxes still use code page characters).

    I also have Word 2007 on this same computer. There was a minor
    annoyance, that when opening one version after having used the other,
    it would stop and reconfigure itself. There's a simple Registry hack
    that tells Word 2007 not to re-register itself, and that solved the

    I installed Word 2000 and sometimes after using Word 2007 I get an error message, but it is a false positive – Word 2000 still works on the whole. An exception is the formatted Autocorrects do not work and can't be deleted without causing Word 2000 to crash.
