[Micronet] Office 2003 key

Luis Torres
Hello Folks,


I have a professor that absolutely wants to use this program, not 2007 and not 2010.
Does anybody have an old Office 2003 key for the version that was once offered
at UC?

Thanks!

Hi Luis:

From a few seconds of Googling, it seems that continuing to run Office 2003 might be a security risk.  Also, as it's no longer supported or patched by Microsoft, it likely runs afoul of the Minimum Security Standards for Networked Devices (https://security.berkeley.edu/MinStds/netdevices.html#software-patch-updates)...

Not the answer you wanted, I'm sure, but hopefully still a useful response.

Cheers,

Ian

The end of support for Office 2003,  security patch updates, has already passed.  So anybody running Office 2003 is thus possibly creating a security risk.

Best,

Guy D. VINSON
Even in to retirement Micronet still is a source of entertainment... When faced with a Faculty request to do something I knew to be counter to the best interest of the network and the University I had a simple reply, "no can't do it" 

It is amazing how quickly that works. I would also try to find out why they had made that request and work with them to make the newer software work for them. Half the time it is a lack of knowledge of the newer product that was the problem. I had many people find MSOffice 2007 "difficult" to adjust to but seemed to come to terms with 2010.

One of our users insisted on using Office 2003 so we installed this app, which provides the Office 2003 user interface for Office 2010:

Just FYI. Our user is very happy.
