    I read in another XP forum somewhere that if you have Office XP installed on your system that you can't install MS Works Suite 2001??? MS Picture It! & Streets & Trips is included in the version of Works that I have and would like to install those 2 programs. In order to install them you have to install the Works installer. I posted a thread in the other forum asking if I can install these programs with Office XP on my system and I had numerous conflicting posts - some said no problem others said it would muck up my system. Any help would be appreciated but PLEASE - no opinions cuz MY OPINION is that since it's MS software it should be OK - but what do I know??? THANKS!!! PJW

    Set a system restore point and go for it. If it does muck something up just use the restore point you created before installation.

    works 2000

    for what it's worth i just installed works 2000 on xp home w/ no
    problems and it seems to run just fine. i did create a restore pt.
    beforehand, but xp seems to have accepted the program without
    a hitch, so if it will take works 2000,wouldn't it accept 2001? don't
    know if this helps you or not ,but like lonman said give it a try!(after you create a restore pt!) best of luck!
    ;)
