Hello MSFN.

 

I've found out an easy method of installing Office 2007 on Windows 2000.  :thumbup

 

You'll need the Chrome tool from blackwingcat: here (or FCWIN2K found here)

 

UUR daily (April 2013)

 

And a copy of Office 2007.

 

Pre-installation: Install UURollup v11 daily. You can get it from here.

 

Step 1:  Download and unpack the Chrome tool from BWC.

 

Step 2:  Open the tool and click on "Set compatible registry"

 

Step 3:  Start the Office 2007 installation. Select "Custom" and uncheck "Microsoft Groove". Everything else will work.

 

Step 4:  When installation is complete, go into the Chrome tool and hit "Clean up setting registry".

 

Done! You can now use Office 2007 on Windows 2000!  :w00t:

Very interesting information!

Thanks a lot :thumbup


PS Please don't use direct links for UURollup. If possible link to http://www.windows2000.tk/archive instead. The current path to UURollup daily in the Archive is "Windows2000/UnofficialUpdatesRollup/Daily".

The originally posted link is "malformed", here is the "right" one:

http://blog.livedoor...ves/360097.html

 

 

You might need to use this:

https://translate.go...ves/360097.html

(the site is in Japanese)

 

As a side note WHY someone would actually want to install Office 2007 :w00t: (and it's ribbon interface :ph34r:) totally escapes me.  :unsure:

Bumping to add information

 

I've recently tested Office 2007 Professional Plus in my Windows 2000 environment and it mostly works just fine except for a few things that have been documented I believe by blackwingcat. Outlook 2007 is broken. It mostly works but it cannot send email from my test, which basically renders it useless right there.

 

I also believe that Publisher 2007 crashes as well, but I cannot remember what the conditions were offhand.

 

Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007 seem to work just fine. I didn't give Access a whirl since I don't think many people here care about it.

 

So for people that either require or at least could use Office 2007 on Windows 2000, it is possible, as long as you don't need Outlook or Publisher. I'm not sure if anyone has found a way around those issues or not.

I'm not sure what's wrong with my pc, I'm trying to install Office 2007 from my 2007 Standard Disc and I cannot find any option for Microsoft Groove. Which expandable option contains groove?

 

I keep getting an error occurred during installation
