For the want of sending people to sleep……….. 😥
I have just about finished making all the changes to my new computer and ………. as I have a fully paid copy of Windows Office 2003 (note that date) thought I would ignore what received wisdom says 🙂
I loaded it and would you believe that even when I got the odd ‘computer says no’ which I dutifully ignored; as one does with Windows. Lo & behold it works !
Caveat: Outlook and word have been tested, they being the bits I really wanted and so far no problems (in fact I now have my Pop mail account working and that, says Microsoft was not possible with Win 8) pushing cloud 365 me thinks.
I was able to go to Microsoft site and download ‘Office S.Pack 3’ and load it from the file – no problems.
So by my reckoning any Office from the above date should in most cases work – well for us mere mortals that is (those who need all its abilities may (I say may) have problems) but for me; I am a happy bunny.
