If word processing isn't very resource intensive, why is it listed in system requirements that it needs at least a P75? New Powerpoint features?
Not sure, I don't use Office 2k. Damn Microsoft sent WinWorld a DMCA about it a while back, so I can't get it from the Library. Aside from a few tweaks, I don't know of any real difference between 97 and 2k.
Okay, I was wrong. After searching through my little private archive, I found that I actually have Office 2k. A disc image of Premium Edition from M$DN.
I'll do some research now with what I have, I'll post results in a little bit.
EDIT1: From what I've done so far, 95 and 2k7 work very well together. Windows 95 RTM is wanting to be an ass tonight, so I'm going to reinstall the C variant and continue my tests. Be back in a bit.
EDIT2: You may want to downgrade your main word processor if possible. 2k7 works perfectly fine with 7.0 (95). I know you probably don't want to do that but it may be a necessary evil. You may be asking "why did you use 2k7 when I said I had 2k13?" You told me what you needed, I'm telling you what I found with what I have. Hope this helps.
EDIT3: If downgrading the version of Office is not possible, you could try a format converter. Change it to .docx when coming from the old computer and back to .doc before transferring back from the new computer. This may preserve formatting, but beware that newer formatting features exclusive to newer versions of Word will not convert properly. If you only do basic word processing, (you made it sound like you are) you shouldn't run into this problem.
