Anyone know whether Office 97 Pro will work on Windows 7
I think you will find Microsoft Office 97 is too old for Windows 7, and there will be incompatibilities. I would upgrade to a newer version of MS Office--2003, 2007, or 2010.
It should install OK using compatibility mode
Having said that take a look at the comments in this LINK enter link description here in particular It is totally unsupported on Win 7 and as each system is different your install may work perfectly or crash repeatedly.
You will have difficulties with Outlook 97 and it is unlikely to work well if at all.
I've installed MS Word and so far it seems to be working ok
I have Office 2000 working (except for Outlook).
It took a bit of Googling for problems.
Opening docs and worksheets sheets by double clicking caused an error for me.
Some 'solutions', reported by many, directly contradict each other.
eg use compatibility mode, run as admin or set Excel options to 'Ignore other Applications'
Outlook needed a couple of dlls for the address book, but I could not get it to see more than one of my email accounts at a time. So I switched to Mozilla Thunderbird.
