    In Word97 only my admin (Guest-1) profile can access the Spell Checker & Grammar. The other profiles don't allow the function and the tab is "greyed-out".

    One MS site, said to alter the registry to allow the others the priviledge. I followed the instructions (they weren't for XP), but there has been no change.

    Change to...

    Office 2000 or XP. Win XP doesn't support Office 97.

    No, I'm only using Word97 from the Office97 suite. Is there any work-arounds? That is the only problem that I have encountered.

    You may not be able to install Office 97 on Xp but you can install the individual items: Word, Exell ... work fine.

  7. I am confused. If Office 97 wont install with Windows XP Pro why has it installed siccessfully for me? It works fine with only one small problem. When I scroll a table sometimes the new screen is broken up a little.
