Why do you only have freeware and shareware?
This is not a "warez" site. We are able to legally distribute only freeware and shareware, since they are free.
Microsoft Word 97 is a retail app. It is illegal to offer for downloading. If you want a Word viewer then you can obtain it from here

Word 97/2000 Viewer (Windows 95/98/NT)

If you are in need for a word replacement app, you can get a freeware program which should handle most of the chores MS WORD can do, and for free

AbiWord is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft® Word. It is suitable for typing papers, letters, reports, memos, and so forth.

Get Open Office (http://www.openoffice.org/) a great freeware (and even open source) MS Office Alternative that can read and write doc, rtf, ppt, xls and can export to PDF without Adobe Acrobat. It&#39;s better than MS Office in every way, except that you would have to change certain habits.

I&#39;ve been using wordpad since I got my com, and I was wondering if there was somewhere that I could get word.

You can buy Microsoft Word from here (http://office.microsoft.com/home/office.aspx?assetid=FX01085799&CTT=6&Origin=ES790020011033) or check out OpenOffice (http://www.openoffice.org/), an open source(FREEWARE) alternative that is compatable with Microsoft Word.

If you are using Windows 9x or 16 bit there is a free version of Word available from Microsoft. This is Word 5.5 for DOS. I don&#39;t have the link to hand but if you search the forums I have posted it in another thread.

If you just use Word Processing download Abiword (links above) which is fully compatible with MS Word.

Program Name: Microsoft Word
Website: www.microsoft.com
Current version: Microsoft 2007
Desired versions: Word 7.0 (95 Possibly?)
Description: word processing software

thank you

Forget it, it's copyrighted software, not free, and I doubt there is any demo version available (though you don't even seem to be asking for a demo).

08-01-2007, 02:48 PM
you can download office 95 from this domain, you have to register first though

[link removed ~locustfurnace

but i will remind you that this software is copyrighted to microsoft

NOW I am referring to you. Do not post links to illegal content, Thats not permitted on these boards.

02-15-2008, 05:12 PM
Hi Guys, What is the latest version of word you have run successfully on 98SE.


02-17-2008, 10:56 AM
I can vaguely recall installing Word 2000 on Windows 98. Ofcourse, simply stating it ran on Windows 98 is not a guarantee it will work smoothly on your hardware.
