Wonder if you can clarify something for me. One of the new features of Word, is going to make writing a large comparative project much easier. At present, I am running Office XP Pro.
I am looking at buying Office 2007 Student and Home edition, which only contains Word, Excel and Power Point. I occasionally use Access and Front page, as well as Outlook at times. Would upgrading to 2007 still allow those to run - i.e. have some applications as 2007 and some as XP?
What are the licensing rules for Office now? Would I be able to put the same copy on my PC and Laptop.
Thanks. Have done a bit of searching around the Office Web-Site, not easy to find...
Apparently, Home and Student EULA allows for the software to be installed on up to 3 machines. In one article it said that Outlook 2003 would still run if you upgraded to the 2007 Home version. Nothing about other applications though.
I think it should work OK, providing when you install you change the default location from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office to something like C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2007, otherwise it will overwrite your XP installation. You might have to manually create Office XP Shortcuts in the Start Menu too, but other than that it should be ok i think.
