    I've been told that QuattroPro 7 CANNOT be loaded onto a computer that is running Windows XP. Is there something in the program that makes it incompatible or causes errors? I would like some feedback before I try to load it. Thanks, Rob

    Hi Dad. I've looked around quite a bit. It appears that Quattro Pro 7 was a part of the Corel Wordperfect 7 Suite and not a stand-alone application. So I restarted the search, LOL. Here's what I found:

    This one says nope to NT systems. Windows XP Pro is an NT system; I'm not sure about Home version.

    However, a thorough review of the Corel site reveals nothing about issues. Does this mean it won't work? No. I cannot help but think if there were serious ramification, that they wouldn't have some article about it.

    Windows XP is pretty cool, especially Pro, and will take good care of you. But it'd be a good idea to back up your registry first.

    I am having the exact same problems you are loading the Quattro Pro 7 using XP Home Edition on my laptop. I have laded it and un-installed it twice and I have still not been able to make the program work properly. The problem seems to be once the program is open I can not access any of the drop down menu's like "File." I have given up on loading it as I can not make it work either.
