    Well i have not tried that stuff, but i guess it should work. Windows Vista and Office XP both are the product of the same developer that is Microsoft. I don't think they will rule out support or compatibility for their own software. But not sure about it, just try it out and you will find it out yourself...

    I don't think it will run according. It may install properly but it may give some problems when you use it. It has a GUI layout as of Windows XP. Windows 2003 has the GUI of Windows Vista. Try if that can do what you need to do... Just a thought...

    Well Office XP installs properly on Windows Vista. It has some known compatiblity issues working with Windows Vista. Office 2003 is fully compatible with Windows Vista. I would not recommend you to downgrade from Office 2007 to Office XP. It may corrupt some registries. All the best if you still want to try...
