    I think that should install fine onto Vista. Give it a whirl. Worse case scenario it'll cry about not working with that operating system. I'm running Office 2007 on Vista and 2003 on XP Home, but, haven't heard that either way won't work.

    Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 will install and work fine with Windows Vista. I use it myself in both my Windows XP and Windows Vista computers.

    After it's installed and your computer restarted, you need to go to the Windows Updates site and do a scan. There's a SP3 upgrade for it, and there will be several Office-related updates to install.

    I get the impression that you're not very computer savvy, so you might consider having someone knowledgeable help you install and upgrade it.
