Finally, a fix for Office ‘97/Windows 7 UAC woes.

Software from Microsoft is benefited by rather constant, frequent updates that keep your Windows software running the best that it possibly can. While I update/upgrade my hardware and software as often as I can, there are many out theme who fall more into the “casual use” category. For them, updating all the time isn’t necessarily that important.

With that said, users of Windows 7 whom installed Office ‘97 (yes, that’s ‘97 with a “9″) may have noticed as of late that editing UAC controls wasn’t working too well for you. Never fear, simple copy the code below into a fresh note in notepad and save as a .reg file. Save said file to your desktop then double click to install — selecting “allow/agree/yes” to the proceeding questions of course. An even more fitting solution: upgrade already. Office ‘97 was old a full decade ago. Let’s keep with the times shall we?

I’m actually curious as to why or what would keep consumers from upgrading their now ancient Office ‘97 installs. Any Office ‘97 users care to chime in? Don’t worry, I won’t judge you…much…

**Copy and paste into Notepad, save as .reg file and then run.
