Microsoft Office 95
Category: Abandoned Office versions
Microsoft Office 95, also known as Microsoft Office for Windows 95, is the version of Microsoft Office released on August 24, 1995, along with Windows 95. It is the successor to Office 4.3 and the first 32-bit version of Microsoft Office. Designed specifically for Windows 95, it also works on Windows NT 3.51, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98. Because it is 32-bit, it does not work on Windows 3.1. It is also not supported on Windows NT 3.1 or Windows NT 3.5, although these systems are 32-bit. 19 November 1996 Microsoft Office 95 technical support ended on December 31, 2001, the same day as for Windows 95. Microsoft Office 95 contains six applications: Word (text editor), Excel (spreadsheet), PowerPoint (presentation editor), Access (database), Schedule+ (time management application) and Binder (program to combine the work of these applications). The CD-ROM version also includes Microsoft books.

According to its name, the package was designed specifically for Windows 95. Earlier Microsoft released Office 4.2 for Windows NT for several architectures, which included 32-bit Word 6.0 for Windows NT and Excel 5.0 for Windows NT, but PowerPoint 4.0 was 16-bit. In the case of Office for Windows 95, all components of the package were 32-bit. All Office 95 programs support OLE 2, which means that they allow interoperability between themselves and all other applications that support this data exchange protocol. Binder used this protocol to bind OLE objects together.
