word 97 refusing to install

July 23, 2011 at 22:09:17
Specs: Windows XP
Word 97 will not install without an approved pre-installed program like Lotus 123. I have 123 for Windows installed. Word 97 installation menu cannot detect it. It is there.

You apparently have the Word97 upgrade and Lotus 1-2-3 is a spreadsheet product, not a word-processor. To meet the requirements for the upgrade:

If the above is truly accurate, then Word for DOS 5.5 should qualify (and it so happens that Microsoft gives that away):

Why would you want to install such an old word program? Just install & use Open Office. It's free & completely compatible with all Microsoft Office products (word, excel, powerpoint, etc).
