Using Word from Office 97 in Vista

Specs: Vista Home Premium, 2.13 GHz/1.99 GB Ram
I installed office 97 on my new PC running Vista. For testing purposes, I just typed a few character and went to print it on an hp LaserJet 2200d that works fine and was already set up as my default printer. Every single time I attempt to print the document, Word closes without even an error message. Now this does not happen with Excel 97, which was installed at the same time as Word 97

consider the test 'failed' and get something more up-to-date :-)

Today's subliminal thought is: 'Calm down ... it's only ones and zeros.'

That Office 97 must be getting on a bit now - remember, Windows 95 was the bees-knees at the time of its release ;)

Having said that, have you tried it in Windows 95/98 compatibility mode?

Probably just another ploy by MS to force you to upgrade. Screw 'em. Get open office.
