Getting an emulator to run a 16 year old piece of software for a completely different architecture is introducing problems a computer non-expert won't know how to deal with. Also, is there some moral issue with Microsoft that elicits hate when you write about loading their software? If you know more about them then you should probably write an answer telling the OP your concerns. I've never used an emulator so I am not familiar with the problems you mentioned but would like to know more. Your answer would be appreciated by me and probably others. Since I first recommended that she upgrade her Microsoft package I don't see a reason to delete my answer unless I learn more about my other option. Thank you for pointing it out though.
