Microsoft Office 2007/2003

  tonyq 16:38 22 Jan 2009

Can anyone confirm if it is O.K to have Microsoft Office 2007 and Office 2003 running on the same computer. I ask because my wife is doing a computer course where she uses Office 2003 and is finding it difficult using the Office 2007 on our home computer. If this is possible I can install Office 2003 which will make life easier for her.

that u can have both running. Installing one might over-write the other. If the reason is so she can use the 2003 menu, there is a dl available somewhere for using 2003 menus with 2007. Just try googling it.

Just a word of warning (no pun intended).
I bought the classic menu, I like it and it makes Office 2007 just about bearable for me but it doesn't make it sufficiently like Office 2003 for what I suspect are your wife's needs.

You can have 2003 & 2007 on your PC, you need to install 2003 first and then when installing 2007 go into customize install and check the box to prevent the uninstall of previous versions.

There are annoyances when switching between 2003 and 2007 products (e.g. using Word 2003 after having just used Word 2007) where a dialogue box keeps popping up. So you will need to follow some instructions from Microsoft to cure this.
