then just use a REAL old copy!
ms office 2000 with the added docx filter works great!
on windows 7! I use the word and the excell.
if all you have is your upgrade copy and it hollers for the orig office
97 to upgrade from just point it back at the cd drive and whammo it
installs. because of course you do not have your old office 97 on a win 7
machine it was on the machine you trashed!

The problem he will run into with an older version of Microsoft Office is
that, although it might be able to run in Compatibility Mode, it is
unsupported by Microsoft and he will not be able to *activate* it after
installing it under Win 7 or 8, so it will "expire" after a limited number
of launches. Ran into this at my office... although we had over 120
of Office Basic 2003 that came with the XP computers we had to replace
(medical clinic: XP is not HIPAA compliant now that it's unsupported),
can't be activated on the new Win 7 computers, so we have to buy new
versions for all those machines!
