Installing Works 2001 & Office XP???



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!

works 2000 has a custom install option,i'm assuming 2001 does too.:)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
