Would there be any problem with installing MS OUtlook 2003 onto a PC running Office 97 without Outlook on already on it? OS is Windows XP Service Pack 1 I believe.

thanks

Why don't you remove office 97 first?

Why don't you upgrade to sp2?

Answering a question with a question is not exactly what I would call helpful.

That is how I usually solve problems. Including at work and when my friends need help with their computer. :)

Not upgrading to SP2 leaves your computer much more open to attacks.

From your post, it looks like you don't want to remove Office97 because of all the rest of the software (Word, Excel etc.). Is that correct?

Generally you can add Outlook2003 just fine. I've also put on Outlook98 with the security updates for quite a few customers along the way. Unless you need Outlook2003 that might be another option.

You are right about Office97 Bob and thank you for your advice. The owner of the PC wishes to keep Office97 - she is comfortable with it even though she has the option of Office2003. I used to use Office97 and I still think it's a good Office suite. It is not my decision whether they use SP2 but I agree with MMJ's point about this.

Thanks for your advice.

Oh, ok, it is not your computer. That clears things up. :)

Just be careful if you expect Word 2003 functionality in Outlook. Outlook 2003 works best with Word 2003.
