Office 2003 Plug in and new Licenses

Post by Pico » Thu Jul 08, 2021 9:32 am

I have 2 questions concerning old office Versions.

1. I have still a Copy of Office 2003 running. What ist the newest Version supporting office 2003.

2. When I purchase a license, is it possible to run the older Versions with this license?

Many thanks in advance

Pico

Hello Pico,

Office 2003 is now 18 years old!!! So I do not really remember which version of our software was supporting this. I would assume V4 or V5. However a license which you can purchase now uses a new style of serial numbers that would not be recognized by such older versions of our software.
What I would recommend you to do is to consider updating to at least office 2010/2013. There might be some very cheap second hand CD/DVDs with those versions sold at auction websites.

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

thanks für your Reply.

I tested Version 5. But didn't know what the latest Version working with Office2003 is.
It is working pretty good, bit I don't have a license. I was just testing the DEMO, because I need it für large documents. I still had the old download here from a former test.
Up to now I was using Acrobat.

BTW: V5 is still running well on Windows 10

OK, the License is not downsizeable. That would be nice.
I will by a new version and see what possible

Hello Pico,

Glad to hear that V4 still works - but unfortunately we can't get you a license key for that version any more :(

Kind regards,
Stefan

Sorry I was wrong. It was V5. I changed it in my reply.
Thanks.

Additional Information:

V9 works not with Word2003. The main Problem ist the AddIn.

Changing one thing is always followed by a couple of other things. :(
Get devorced and you realize your house is gone too. :mrgreen:
But it is what it is.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Pico,

Glad I could provide the info above. It's just that Office 2003 is now ... old enough to vote! ;)
As time and technologies change - there comes a point where we have to stop supporting older versions and only focus on more recent ones!

Kind regards,
Stefan
