Yes it is.  It is easier to install Office 97 if you have not installed 
Service Pack 2 for Windows XP.

Can you expand on the issues one will encounter if Windows XP SP-2 is 
installed first?

IF you select the custom install option (I can't say about other 
install methods as I never use them) and select the HTML options (which 
I always do) it simply will not install.  At all.  No way.  If you do 
not select the HTML options it will install, it may or may not run and 
it will for sure fail to update.

Fix:  If you've installed SP2 just remove it, install Office97, make 
sure ALL the updates on the MSFT site are installed and then re-install 
SP2.  

Office 97 will work just fine with SP2, it just won't install.

If you have XP with SP2 slipstreamed into it, you might search the 
archives of this group for a workaround but be aware it did not work 
for me.

Hi, Beth.  The only way I could get Office 97 to install on WinXP SP2 
was to choose a custom installation and set the Web Page Authoring 
feature to "not available".  If I didn't do that, sometimes the 
installation would stop responding, and sometimes I'd get a "File 
htmlmarq.ocx was unable to register itself with the system registry" 
error.

Ah! That makes sense considering some of the Web components were 
disabled. Guess I'll uninstall Office 97 and try this out.

Thanks for the info from both 'garfield' and 'XS11E'. :-)

Many/most new desktop/laptops I've encountered in the past couple of weeks
have SP2 factory installed.

True and I don't know how Office 97 can be installed on those systems 
unless it was installed separately, then it can be removed.

If you search this newsgroup, you'll find a method of installing Office 
97 after installing SP2, it did NOT work on my computer as I said above 
but maybe it will on others?

Other alternatives are to upgrade to a later version of Office or to 
use OpenOffice.  I've found that OfficeXP may sometimes be available 
for a much lower price now that later versions are available and it 
will install with SP2.

Office 2000 works too.

I haven't tried it but didn't someone here have to uninstall SP2 in 
order to install Office 2000?  I seem to recall reading that not long 
after SP2 came out.

I am typing right this second on an XP Pro SP2 with Office 2000 installed on

Hello,
I realized that some people are still using Access 97.
So, I tried to install my version on XP Home.  It is an upgrade version, so 
it searches for already installed software and should prompt for a disk 
(ette) if not found.  I do not have a diskette on my laptop, but I figured I 
could use the network connected to a PC that has one.  Nevertheless, the 
installation software does not reach that point, it just hangs there 
"searching" the disc.
Suggestions ?
