Old Versions

Question: What would happen if I install MS Office Pro designed for Windows 95 in a Dell PC using MS XP home edition?

Answer: That version of Office will probably run on XP however you would not be able to use it to view documents spreadsheets etc produced by other people as Microsoft have changed the file format about three or four times in the 10 or 11 years since that software was written. Newer versions of Office can read files produced by older versions but older versions can't read newer files.
