Hi,
I have Windows XP 2002, with Service Pack 2, but I am really missing the
Publisher and FrontPage I had with ME. What is the best download for me to
get without getting a ton of other programs I don't want? I run a charity, so
lowest cost is important too. Thanks for any help anyone can give me!

Both Windows XP and Windows Me are operating systen neither come with
publisher or Frontpage
You can get those products with Microsoft Office

Hi,

Publisher and Frontpage are not part of Windows ME. Thay are a part of the Microsoft Office suite.
The best program for your computer would depend on what exactly your needs are. You can find a wide
variety of software compatible with Windows XP at Windows Marketplace.

There is no no download you can get. Both Publisher and FrontPage
are commericla software, for sale, and can't legally be
downloaded anywhere.

If you want these you have to buy them. If you don't want other
software, just buy them individually.

So buying them individually (ie downloading them after paying for them, got
it) is the only way. Ok, thanks for your help.

Microsoft has a "Charitable Giving" Program for qualifying
institutions. There are also other ways to get software for
non-profit organizations at little if any cost.
Information on the MS program here:

You can also buy Publisher as part of Office Small Business
Edition, but you said you didn't want other software.

Also note that you still can't download them after paying for
them. You either pick them up at the store, or have them sent to
you.

On the other hand, if you mean "install" rather than download,
please note that "download" is not a synonym for "install,"
despite the number of people who seem to be using it this way
recently. To download is to transfer a file (usually over the
internet) to your computer. Once downloaded, if it's a program,
it still has to be installed.

You're welcome. Glad to help.

If you had MSPub, etc., installed on your ME machine and you upgraded the
machine to XP, MSPub, FrontPage, and whatever are still there. You may
simply have lost the icons. Or if you once-upon-a-time installed MSPub on
your old ME machine, find the CDs and install on your XP machine.

Seek and ye shall find.

Further, there is no Windows XP 2002, with or without Service Pack 2.

Ummm...technically there is. Right click on My Computer and select properties. Under system
properties you will note Windows XP 'version 2002'.

MS Publisher and FrontPage were never part of any Windows. These were part
of Office and/or sold as separate programs. Since you are running a
charity, providing you have a "regisrtation number" as a charity, you can
contact Microsoft. They offer a non-profit program where you can get their
programs at a greatly reduced price.

Then you are "technically" not correct. Under My Computer Properties,
it's not Windows XP Version 2002, it's

Windows XP
Professional
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

However, it was never branded as Windows XP Home/Professional (take
your pick) 2002. It was simply branded Windows XP Home or Windows XP
Professional
