I'm using xp home and I want to install office 2000. Can I have both
installed at the same time and work conflict free. I really only want to
install the excell and powerpoint parts of the programe, but the "2000"
manual says it is important to install the whole program. Is this really
nessessary. Any advice you could offer would be gratefully appreciated.
thanks

Joe

Can you have both what installed at the same time? Windows XP and Office
2000? Of course you can! Many are still using this version of Microsoft
Office with XP.

Not only will you not have any problems with Office 2000 on XP Home, I have
an English Office 2000 on a Spanish XP Home.

If it is recommended that you install the whole program, why not?

I'm not sure of the point of this question. Are you asking
whether Office 2000 is compatible with Windows XP?

If so, the answer is yes. Office versions as far back as Office
95 work with Windows XP.

No. You can install whatever components you want.

But I have found that there can be some incompatibilities. FWIW, I tried to
use Spellcheck on QuarkXPRess 5, while running Office 97. Unfortunately
Quark's spellcheck uses Office Dictionary and it would not work with Office
97. Now I have Office 2003 installed and Quark Spellcheck wworks fine. This
is, of course, not an XP issue, just my random note.
