Macintosh Gardeners, does anyone have the files for the 'Office Control Strip', control strip module that accompanied the development of Office 2001? I used to have it and it was very useful to be able to launch the 'Project Gallery' from the Control Strip, set 'New Tasks', 'Open Task List', 'Open Address Book', 'New Contact', and set-up 'Reminders'. It may be here i, but I've been unable to locate it thus far. It would complete the Office 2001 downloads here on this page nicely (and most usefully)...

I have now located the files for Microsoft Office QuickView, Microsoft Office Manager, Word Speak 2001, Office Extras and Microsoft Office Removal Tools here: and will upload the individual files to this page, with the Microsoft Office Control Strip module, additionally.

@24bit: Maybe it was MS Office X or 2004 you had running at the time, after this, the Office releases were universal builds for a while, so Rosetta wouldn't be needed there.

No matter, SheepShaver. I've never found Ms Office 98 or 2001 to be stable enough to run on SheepShaver without crashing the emulation dead at any time while it's running ( perhaps more when quitting or saving?). So maybe "compatible" could be rephrased, to be more like; "it installs" Wink

by 24bit - 2020, March 27 - 10:58am

Oh well, my bad. I was thinking of MS Office 2011, obviously.
So the OSX button should be unchecked maybe - Classic is not OSX really. Smile

Should we uncheck the "compatible with SheepShaver" box too?
That was my main point here.
Office 2001 should work under QemuPPC, as does Office 98.

I don't know how you had this running in Rosetta since Rosetta is not a Classic Mac OS environment. Rosetta is only for using Mac OS X compiled apps from the PPC architecture in Carbon or Cocoa, excluding PPC 970 compiled apps.
Office .X would be the first one to be able to run in Rosetta.

24bit's picture
by 24bit - 2020, March 26 - 9:17pm

Found this useful running via Rosetta and Snow Leo a while ago.
Thanks a bunch for the German version!
Can anybody confirm Office 2001 is indeed running with SheepShaver?
None of the Office apps is running on my side with Sheep, various errors, crashes, but no joy. Wink
SheepShaver cpu speed is set to 200MHz, btw.

I've added the 9.0.4 updater for what it's worth (the newer 9.0.5 and 9.0.6 updaters were already here anyway).

I just looked everywhere I could think of and cannot find the german version anywhere to buy. Or to download.

The software is sold occasionally on flea bay.
Maybe someone is willing to buy the German version and add a disk image here?
(Not me this time and EUR 15,50 is a bit much for such old stuff.)

Hi, the german updates 9.0.5 and 9.0.6 do change the interface language to german. Somehow the spelling proofing doesn't seem to work, if I wirte a typo, it will not be underlined red anymore... The settings menu for "Proofing and Grammar" is grayed out, not even accessible anymore. I also already tried renaming the english named program folders to german (which worked for templates and document type converters, but the proofing just doesn't work).

I'd be really greateful for someone uploading the appropriate german version of this (be it a CD or a working installed folder).

Thanks for the head up, i did Know, there is a way to change the language via Updates for the 2004 Version in osx but i Didn't know, that this is possible on 2001 as well,

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2014, December 20 - 12:22am

@almightyM: If no-one has the full German version, you might only need to find a vers 9.0.5 updater for the German language MsO 2001 and "update" the English version here, with that.

Read the "[Important]" warning regarding the Spanish update that's here. There's a good chance that finding the German 9.0.5 update for this would also work (see Full list link above in page description area).

[Edit] if the Full list link above used to take you to the Mac updaters for Office 2001, it doesn't seem to anymore - at least I wasn't able to locate them via that link... Sad

[Edit 2] Located a current (2014:12:19) official link for the Office 2001 Mac v9.0.5 German update Smile

Well, close. It says -

I go with the invalid link, meaning it's expired. Still, there were 700 downloads before that happened, so I know most of the users here have it.

You have a point there: Word has always been an office applicaton designed for the special needs of office folks - whereas word processors like NisusWriter Classic and FullWrite (which I both use and love) serve quite different needs. On OS X I probably would use Mellel and Scrivener, on Windowns probably papyrus. All of them are indeed very different from Word.

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2010, March 21 - 10:49pm

Interesting points. I bought it, used it, loved it. Until I bought Office v.X anyway.

Guess I just didn't need any of those features so just didn't miss them. Coming from Word 5 (which had serious issues with OS9 and VM being off) and Word 6 - which no-one wants to speak about - it was a real blessing and some of the best Mac software ever written.

Not trying to rubbish your points, just different needs.

xy's picture
by xy - 2010, March 21 - 12:18pm

What does the 2001 version actually offer other Mac abandonware apps don't? I mean, look, for instance, at Word 2001:
no long document support (Word 5.1A is better here!);
horrible typography (RagTime 5 is better here);
insufficient or no support for international languages like Arabic or Hebrew (NisusWriter is better here);
due to a bug no automatic hyphenation from Mac OS 9.1 onwards (all wordprocessors are better here!);
no sufficient protection for macro viruses (Word 5.1A is better here!).

I used MS Office 2001 exactly half an hour my entire life and then trashed it. I never regretted it.

Like Word 6 Office 2001 is a collectors item. But which Mac user would actually use this on his or her own free will?!

Yes, no hard feelings bertyboy. Like I said before I really (!) appreciate all your efforts regarding the Mac Garden, you've done an amazing job. We have a different idea on this one, really, who cares? Wink

And yes, I know this problem with home networks. I think I had it with Age of Empires II - we wanted to play a LAN game, my best friend brought his Mac but then we discovered that everyone needs a different version of the game. (before we had played Diablo which - if I remember right - would let you play LAN multiplayer even without the disc in drive) So really, Google can be a good friend... Wink

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2010, February 26 - 6:10pm

Like I said, I don't support warez here as well. Which means cracked versions, versions slimmed down etc. my understanding of preserving the software of the past - in it's full original state, fully useable. But I guess we all have our own definition

These are my thoughts exactly. But asking me to post a working serial too goes just too far. If someone else was to post a working serial, I may silently disapprove but I wouldn't flame them. Well i might post once in protest but that's only my opinion since the software does come up on eBay quite often - but not enough for all of us to get a copy, which is why the disc is posted here.

Got to admit, when I've been working on 3 Macs at once many years ago I've had to use Google so that I could run Entourage on one, Powerpoint on another and Word/Excel on the third.

Bolkonskij's picture
by Bolkonskij - 2010, February 26 - 5:29pm

Alright, I actually decided not to write anymore here in this topic since I really respect everyones decision. We're all volunteers here Smile I still do respect it, but I have to answer to the what-if scenario that has been drawn.

Besides studying i'm working part-time with a big japanese videogame company (guess who..). The company gets roughly 300-400 notifications of copyright violations by some rom sites & else per month here. Mostly by customers. And what is the reaction? Nothing. Nothing. And why? Simply because everyone understands there is no way to stop this from happening, because it's wrong to think that someone downloading a rom would buy the original software and last - but most important - these sites are not maintained by companies. No companies means no money. Be sure, even Microsoft has no interest in starting law action, probably on international scale, and then finding out that the other side is a 16 year old student (just any example) with no funds, thus leaving them with all the costs. What the company lawyers deal with, are the really big fish - far eastern companies and such.

MacGarden as well as these millions of rom pages are not of any interest. (just type in "roms" into google and check yourself... pretty obvious copyright violations you'd think, where are the lawyers!?)

But if you really really really want to be on the safe site (which I support, don't get me wrong please!) then add in the source of the page that google shall not index the apps/games pages of the site. That way google search for "Microsoft Office 2001" will in no case turn up this page here.

Aside from that, it's completly up to you bertyboy, what you want to share and when Smile

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2010, February 26 - 8:42am

The answer is -

Yes it may be.

Consider this. IF Microsofts lawyers were ever to contact the site regarding any of their software, they would hopefully either a Take Down Notice, or a Cease and Desist Order, as well as seeking to recover their costs and maybe a fine.
The sites defence would be that it is only there to preserve original Macintosh software and that it would comply with any Order obtained by Microsoft (again, this has all be said before) immediately, completely, without notice and without protest.
The presence, or absence, of working serial numbers would either sink the sites defence, or strengthen the sites defence.

I don't care about Google
I already have this program running before it was posted
and that's not the issue
and my question was not answered,

Is this Software Warez?

As Simple as that

if it is warez it shouldn't be here..(according to MacGarden Policy)

how complicated is that?

iig's picture
by iig - 2010, February 25 - 11:31pm

Kind of complicated Euryale,
First of, downloading M$ software (like windows xp, office 2008) without product keys, is perfectly legal, its the PRODUCT KEYS that are the illegal parts.
For example, downloading office 2008 for mac from a torrent site, JUST TO REPLACE a scrached or lost cd, is legal, if you have the product key.

So, to anwser your question, The image is legal, the product key is Kind of Questionable, so as bertyboy said, Google is Your friend. Smile

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2010, February 25 - 11:27pm

I already had MS Office 2001 before this post..
(but there are just some things I don't get..
probably that's a man's thing and me as a Woman I just don't get it)

this is very SIMPLE, but you guys make it way too complicated and I don't understand why,
and that kind of behavior upsets me a little bit,

if this is Warez,
It shouldn't be here at MacGarden.... that is MacGarden's policy, right?
and avoid all that big blah blah excusing yourself, and having MacGarden on Bill Gates's Black list,

that's one thing,

If this is NOT warez, then there should be No problem whatsoever posting the serial key
just like we've been doing all this time,

now the question is very simple,

is this Warez or not?

now if you just don't want to share it, that's no problem at all,
That's understandable,
but then why going all the trouble uploading the full CD for everybody if they can't use it,

in that case someone should have posted a link to eBay or Microsoft's download page.
and make it simpler.

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2010, February 25 - 10:50pm

Google is your friend.

I have no trouble in posting software and serials, where required, for products released by companies no longer in business, and where the rights to those products have not been taken up by another company - the rights to the products of a company are usually something sold off by the receivers who dispose of the company assets when they go into liquidation. This doesn't always happen, ie. if the company has no creditors to pay, or where the company has gone into volutary liquidation. I've done this to two of my IT services companies. I'm sure that this is not the first time we've discussed this on the site.

So, if Microsoft went to the wall tomorrow I'd have no trouble in providing my own serial, and uploading Office v.X (which I also paid for) and a serial for that. But posting serials for a company that aggresively defends its copyright would only be bad news for the site.

We're all entitled to our opinion, but it won't help us fight off Microsoft lawyers, and this isn't a free software site, even for very old software, someone had to purchase it, and I still search for and pay for old titles on eBay and similar.

On that note, you can easily purchase Office 2001 on eBay or similar for under $10 / £5 if you really want to use it. I can promise you (again, said this more than once before) that it was some of the best OS9 software ever written, easily worth the full price back in the day.

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2010, February 25 - 10:25pm

Then if this is WAREZ, then it shouldn't be here in the first place.
(I don't know if this is warez or not)

but if it is, then I think MacGarden's policy is very clear about warez.

if it is not warez then it shoudn't be a problem posting the product key.

easy Math.

Which means cracked versions, versions slimmed down etc. my understanding of preserving the software of the past - in it's full original state, fully useable. But I guess we all have our own definition Smile So let it be like this, whoever is looking for the key should ask almighty Google as SwedeBear mentioned (thanks!)

Euryale's picture
by Euryale - 2010, February 25 - 9:38pm

I thought it was just drag the folder onto the HD and used it,
I already had Office 2001, and the version I had first, I just copied the folder,
and it worked fine,

eventually, I downloaded this full version and burned it onto a CD,
but I have not tested it (install it)

I didn't know it asks for a Key number.
but if it does, it would be nice to have it, otherwise it wouldn't make sense
having uploaded the whole program.

but if bertyboy doesn't want to share it,
well, then I guess we can't do anything about it.

Your concept of preservation is like
"You can look, but you can't touch"
"You can have it, but you can't use it"

or like President Clinton once said:
"...smoked it but didn't inhaled it"

To make it complete, do a simple search on the web. It´s there amongst others of its kind.
I totally agree on keeping these things separated; w@rez tends to be destructive. Catering and preservation are in nature a building and reproductive force. This we have use for here in this community. Wink

Bolkonskij's picture
by Bolkonskij - 2010, February 25 - 8:40pm

I agree on not being a warez site, bertyboy. It's just that it's not preserved, since it is not possible to install it without the key mentioned. It's incomplete.

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2010, February 25 - 8:13pm

If this was a warez site then we'd probably have one included.

But it's all about preservation of Mac software, which is what the page does.

But I paid full price for my box and serial so I have (maybe unjustly) no sympathy.
