This entry is just for testing the installer of Microsoft Office 97.
When reporting test results, please follow the Guidelines for Submitting Test Reports below (scroll down to notes section).
|Excel||Number crunching for the masses...|
|Access||Design your own relational database.|
|Word||The largest and most well-known word processing software currently available.|
|Microsoft Powerpoint||Create slideshows with animation and sound.|
|FrontPage||WYSIWYG HTML Editor from Microsoft.|
|Microsoft Outlook||Email, Calendar, Contact Manager, and more.|
Word, Excel, and Powerpoint install without any error messages.
All three programs start up fine.
What does not
If Access is included in the install, the installer gives an error message
about being unable to register accwiz.dll (bug #3689) at the end. Trying
to start Access gives an error message about there being no license for it
on the machine.
What was not tested
I'm rating it silver because of the problems installing Access; Word, Excel and Powerpoint install without any problems. Note that my rating is for the installer only; I did not test any of the installed programs beyond starting them.
