Running MS Office 2003 on Vista Home Premium 64-bit?

I've been having some luck regenerating programs on my new computer simply by dragging their folders in my old Program Files into the Program Files in my new computer. However when I try to open, say, Excel.exe, I get this alert: "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application."

Since i can't find the installation exe for MS Office 2003, I was hoping I could resurrect it this way. So my question is: How can I get my new OS configured to run the application? Assuming it'll even work anyway ...

Thanks,
John

Hi John,

Office 2003 works perfectly on Vista 64-bit if you have all the updates installed. Unfortunately, you'll need the installation disc to install Office 2003.

Cheers.

It Will let you download the trial version. As long as you have the legitimate key it will work.
 Make sure you do updates
