Pre Installed Microsoft Office 2007 problems

  Habsish 10:27 21 May 2008

Have new computer with 60 day pre installed Office 2007.

I already have a retail copy so unisntalled the 60 day version from add remove programmes.

Custom installed Office and Excel.

Start either programme and get error message "office application version does not match" any suggestions to solve the problem?

In add/remove programs, are there any updates or hotfixes that reference an earlier version of office?

You cannot remove all of Microsoft 2007 by using Add/Remove program as Microsoft

removal program leave files in the registry that check the version that you are trying to


There is a Office Removal tool on Microsoft Site but I don’t trust it

To remove Office 2007 and all other Software totally from your computer you need to

use either one of there programs, if during the uninstall you are requested to reboot say

NO until the uninstall program is complete than reboot the computer

Have you downloaded the Office 2007 Service Pack (1)as this might help. It's a large file and takes a while to download and install.
