Fortunately, Office 2003 runs just fine on Win10 :icon_mrgreen:

 I used to keep Office 2000 on my main computer but with Win10 64, I could install it but Win10 kept crippling it so I gave up.

Hi Jochen,

Me too, I prefer Office 2003. It works fine. No eye-candy stuff.

Hi aw27,

Exactly, that's happening.

Hi Hutch,

I guess it must a problem related to the DLLs shipped with Office 2000. Sadly, M$ is crippling old software to sell the new versions.

Office what? I have never had installed Microsoft Office in my home laptop/pc. Kingsoft office is exactly the same but freeware, all what I need in my home.

When i need to open some file like those (lets say office like files) i installed open office. What i like of it, is that it can convert a word file in a pdf file very easily.

The KingSoft suite looks nice indeed. It is a bit slow, though; I made some tests with a 20MB tab-delimited file, loading is a factor 2 slower than with M$ Excel, sorting even a factor 5 or so (and I remember that OpenOffice was even slower). My unfinished spreadsheet control is another factor 3-5 faster, but that is an unfair comparison, as both KingSoft and Excel offer many more features.

P.S.: I've tried to uninstall the KingSoft suite because on day 2 of my installation it starts nagging and wants me to pay 30U$ per year to get rid of the nag screens.

Uninstall did well, except that there were still many files around, most of which I could kill manually. The registry has a key named HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations, which is full of KingSoft nasties.

This one cannot be killed: C:\ProgramData\kingsoft\office6\mtfont\mtextra.ttf_d_3a34a120
Access denied for everything, even Unlocker had no chance :(

Hi Jochen,

You can try the recovery environment of Windows 7 / 8 / 10 and delete the unnecessary files. Also, editing the registry offline is possible in the recovery mode.

JJ,
have you tried to reboot to get rid of the nasties?

The latest version has been filled with advertising as counterpart for making it free of charge. I have installed an older version for years and it has done very well, without advertising, but also without being able to save in Microsoft Office docx format, etc. and without being able to export to pdf.

Yes, and that helped to get rid of that super-protected mtextra.ttf_d_3a34a120 file. Why the hell are they playing these games? It really doesn't create confidence. I will stick to my trusty old MS Office 2003 as long as it works.

Btw I also tried LibreOffice. It works but it is incredibly slow.

@Erol: Thanks a lot, fortunately it worked without the recovery environment :icon14:
