Install Office 97 SR2b on Vista

P: 1
In reply to the thread at http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread622173.html . I have a slightly modified version of the steps involved that worked on my computer.

1. Install Office 97, but exclude Outlook. Outlook will cause a problem with install. It will show up in the SR-2B install log. This is located in: c:\program files\Microsoft Office\Office\Setup . The log will show "Unable to move C:\Windows\system32\mapi32.dll".

2. Run the SR-2b patch with command line switches /c and /t:<full path
to where the extracted files will go>

3. Save away the 4 Vista fonts: Go to \Windows\Fonts and copy the
Vista version of the font files (comic.ttf, comicbd.ttf, tahoma.ttf,
tahomabd.ttf) to a \SAVE directory.

4. "Install" the 4 SR2b fonts: Go to where the extracted files from
the patch are, and select the four .ttf files. Right-click and select
"INSTALL". Reply YES to the prompt to replace the Vista fonts.

5. Install SR-1 patch.

6. Run sr2patch.exe from the extracted SR2b as Administrator.

7. Restore the Vista fonts: Go to the \SAVE directory, select the
Vista .ttf files, right-click and select "INSTALL". Reply YES to the
prompt to replace the current (SR2b) fonts.
