    Hello,

    Well, there is compatibility issue with MS-office 2003 and Windows 8 so you are having problem. You did not mention the type of errors happening during the installation of MS Office 2003 so it is very difficult for me to predict the solution. But since MS Office 2007 is a comparatively new then 2003 you should use it rather than trying to use some old stuff.

    I would also suggest you to please check MS website and find out whether Windows 8 is not compaible with MS Office 2003 or not. Microsoft is the best place where you can find your answer.

    Bye,

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........................

    1.You cannot install Ms Office 2003 in your Windows 8 system.

    2.Because it is the problem of the compatibility.

    3.As Windows 8 is the latest version of the Os you should have to install only the latest version of the Ms Office only.

    4.That is the Office which was released at 2007 and after 2007 are compatible with Windows 8.

    5.So you go to the Microsoft website and then buy the latest version of Ms Office for your system.

    Have a nice day...........................

    Windows 8 is the latest product of the Operating System of this digital world.

    MS Office though also is a Microsoft product, the version which you are trying to install is very old.

    You can never install it as Microsoft had discontinued backward compatibility with such older versions of MS Office.

    Log into http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...Language=en-US, this web link will provide you the compatibility test to make sure , the softwares you are trying to install are compatible with Windows 8.

    You cannot install Office 2003 on Windows 8.

    Office 2003 is too old and obsolete and hence is is not made compatible with the new OS version.

    You should use 2007, 2010 or 2013 versions of Office.

    You can confirm this on the following Microsoft Support link:

    support.microsoft.com/kb/2777626

    Hi..

    For this first of all check weather your ms office some files are missing or what...?

    If it is good then need to check your system compatibility with OS and application..

    Both are good then need to upgrade both..

    Cause ms office 2003 is old version and win 8 is new version so..

    There is no compatibility with these products..

    So you can install ms office 2007 or 2010 , 2013 .

    Those are convenient with your OS..

    Thank you.
