Silly question...

I just bought a Laptop with Vista Home on it.

Is there a way to install Office XP?

I have tried a few times and no joy. Is there some trick?

I get a Message that says it can't find a valid qualifying product.

Then I get Error 1608.

Running Vista Home Basic.

while final vista may be different, while beta testing vista I was able to run both office 2000 and office xp without any problems. I even seen reports of some running office 97.

I think I may have figured out what is going on, there was a trial version of Office 2007, I think, deleted that so I could install mine.

I think that maybe messing stuff up.

Reading the Error Message on the Microsoft, and seeing if I can get around it.

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!
