Office 97 runs fine on Windows 7 but you need at least professional. It would not run on Windows 7 home. I did not have to do anything special, it ran out of the box.

As far as why I would not upgrade to a newer version of Office - this was done on my 75 year old mom's computer. Hers bit the dust and she wanted Windows 7. I installed office 2010 for her and she freaked out and wanted her old Office back.

Change is not always good especially when I am the phone support.

I recently bought a new computer with Win7, I also bought Office 2010.  My computer had Office 2010 starter installed.  After seeing the difference between Office 2010 and my old version Office 2000.  I returned Office 2010 and will continue using Office 2000.

I agree change is not always for the better.  I found Office 2000 much more user friendly.
