  1. I have Microsoft Xp SP1 I want to install office 2007 on it. Is there a way I can do this without having to get SP2 or higher?

    why don't you want to install SP2? you are missing out on a lot of features that it offers.

    Now you're going to check all my posts (actually I don't mind)

    Anyway, he may have activation issues ;)

    Or he may be running on Dialup (yes you can order the CD)

    Hey Xp SP3 should be out soon, maybe he's waiting for that.

    I am sorry if it seems like I am following you around. Not my intent, just a small world here. I am new to the site and trying to learn all the nuances available and help anyone I can with the little I think I know. I have not been on a forum of this quality before. There are a lot of smart people giving answers. As I search... I learn.

    Regarding this post... Even running dial up - just go to the local coffee house that provides free wifi access. (unless ofcourse it is a desk top - typing faster than I am thinking)
    I am just wondering if there is some troubles with MS Update. They have made it ever harder these days to upgrade especially when having 'activation' issues.

    I find that activation issues are not worth it anymore these days.
