Problems after Upgrade Installation from Office 2003 to Office 2010

Q: Problems after Upgrade Installation from Office 2003 to Office 2010

I did an upgrade installation from Office 2003 PRO to Office 2010 PRO. I had several issues with Access denied on C:\Config.msi. I usually select retry and all is well. I think I may have missed one of the retries before I did the system restart.
Now I get an error 2203 whenever I reboot, and the Office 2003 installer keeps popping up anytime I try to do anything.
I tried uninstalling Office 2003 and was told that I had a corrupted install. I tried re-installing it and it seems to just hang.
I also tried to uninstall and repair Office 2010.

I'm at a loss at this point.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:office 2003 upgrade to office 2010

There's no upgrade license for Office 2010. It should install just fine over whatever version you have, and it will install just fine on a computer without any previous version installed.

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
 
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

I'm running Windows 7 on my new computer, which came with a trial version of Office 2010. Rather than buy the full version when the trial expired, I installed the Office 2003 I had on my old -- now dead -- computer. I now find that I can't open the Word and Excel files I created with the 2010 version. Is there a 'cloud' site where I could send the 2010 files and have them returned to me as standard .xls and .doc files? Or is there a free converter available for download?

Hi fred93 The documents you created with Office programs aren't related to it. You can simply uninstall Microsoft Office 2003, and install Office 2010 and you'll be able to use them again. Simple as that.

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?

A:Importing template files from Office 2003 to Office 2010

Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.

- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it

I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

Hi, welcome to the forum,
I had a similar situation here but in the end I opted out.

I removed both Office 2003 and 2007 and installed 2010, I then used virtual XP and installed 2003 there, 2007 and 2010 are too similar and the dll's will 'bite' along the way.

Even my 2003 and 2007 gave me issues after some time.

In 2003 I purchased a laptop and installed Microsoft Office 2003 using a disk and the numerical key. I should note that I no longer have that disk but I still had the numerical key. In 2013 Microsoft had a special offer to upgrade to Office 2010 using a download from their website and using a new numerical key. I have now purchased a new computer (and will be scrapping the old computer ) and would like to bring this Microsoft office 2010 from the old laptop to the new one. Since I no longer have the original disk can I just download the file from the Microsoft website? If I can which numerical key should I try to use?

Hi, all. I hope you can help me.
 
1. I was previously working on a 32-bit Compaq computer that ran Windows XP, and I used Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 for my work.
 
2. I bought a new computer, a 64-bit Dell running Windows 7 Professional, which came equipped with Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010.
 
3. Because I prefer the MS Word program on Office 2003 to 2010, I installed that on my new computer with the proper keycode. (During setup, I chose only to install the old Word 2003 -- not the old Outlook, Excel or Powerpoint programs.)
 
4. Installation was successful. The Office 2010 files reside in the Programs directory; the Office 2003 files reside in the Programs (x86) directory.
 
5. I then instructed Windows 7 to open .doc and .docx files with the 2003 Office Word program.
 
6. The problem is: Whenever I choose Word 2003 from the Program menu (or click on an actual doc file), I receive the msinstall message, "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Standard Edition" for about ten seconds. Then Word 2003 opens. I checked the Windows Event Viewer, which indicates that during this hang, either Word 2003 or Word 2010 is apparently looking for components it can't find.

A:PLEASE HELP RESOLVE OFFICE 2003 AND OFFICE 2010 CONFLICT

 When you switch between an Office 2010 program and an older Office program, it goes through that configuring process.  I read somewhere that this is because each version of Office has entries in the registry with the same names but are set differently so it has to go through this little gooney bird dance.  If it's the ribbons (and lack of the menu bar) you don't like in Office 2010, there's a neat little program called Ubitmenu you can download and install that gives you an old style menu bar with most of the Office 2003 features on it.

Hi there
it's in the Ms store already -- although IMO I'd stick to Office 2010 if I were you.
Anyway YMMV so here's the link (UK store) .

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

I have been running Office 2003 since it first came out and continue to run it on virtually all my computers. I have one recently purchased computer with Win7 and thought I would try Office 2010. Aside from the amazingly awkward interface and organization of things, I have noticed:

far more problems with corrupted files in Office2010 than in Office2003
Further, when I send documents via email between computers I find that some .docx files arrive as .dat files. Does not ever happen when files are simply move across the network

Hi,


I need to have Office 2003 and Office 2010 installed on the same computer. They won't be running at the same time, but both will be used occassionally so both of them must be installed.

I read somewhere that this is not officially supported but possible.


What's the proper way of doing so? Do I install the Office 2003 first and then 2010?

Is there a way to prevent the setup from running each time I'm switching between the versions? It takes up a lot of time and I think it's unneccessarry.

I have a MS Basic Office 2003 license and want the best legal way to upgrade at minimum cost.

In the end I need a license for 2010.

2) via MS
3) box store
4) on line store amazon ?
 

A:Going from MS Basic Office 2003 to MS Office 2010

I would say, BOX Store, and get only what you need. If Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Onenotes is fine, then get the Home and student. This comes with a license for three (3) machines, for less than $150.00 US.
But if you need Outlook, then you will have to get the Pro version or better.

I've downloaded a copy of Office 2010 Pro Plus 32-bit from IUWare. Since it's free to Indiana University students, it seems like the best place to go. It comes as a self extracting archive, and once it's finished extracting the installation starts by itself. It looks like it installs the exact same way as any other source, save the initial extraction.

My problem is that during the actual installation, a message will appear after a few moments saying that the installer can't locate certain files and asks for you to define the path (each time I try to install it complains about a different file). When I browse for the missing file USING THE INSTALLER, it either isn't there, or the installer won't let me click the correct folder. It says "Invalid Location." But if I look for it myself in explorer, it's always right where it's supposed to be.

I've had this problem installing previous versions of office, with both IU sources and others, and a simple re-download usually takes care of it. I've already downloaded this 4 different times and would like to find a fix. I was just wondering if anyone here has had this problem and could help me out.

You should be able to purchase an upgrade to Office 2003, as long as you have a qualifying program in your computer. Once you have upgraded, don't get rid of the older program!

Either is fine, but a lot changed between 2003 and 2007 so if you're not familiar with 2010 there's a learning curve to it. I generally think that going with the more recent version is better because it keeps you up to date with the current technology. You don't use it professionally now, but someday you might, and it would be good to already know it. Just my two cents.

Now I've done a duel install on my Toshiba Satellite (32bit) and they seem to have cozied up together very well. However on my main machine (64bit system) as soon as I put the 2010 Office on it seemed to have kick 2003 three out of bed
I'm assuming it’s a dust up between the 32bt system and the 64bit??????
I could do the course on the lappy but I prefer 32inch screen to 17 any day!

Access 2003 is not installed at the moment but I'm thinking should I install it to another directory "Programme Files" for win 7U or X86?
But on checking out dir's it seems that "office12/14 are in Prog files and there is "office 12" in X86 not sure if that is left over bits from when 2003 was previously Installed.

How do I get both to work on my 64bit system like they do on my 32bit system?????

A:Office 2010 + 2003

This is what you need, I guess.

As to our other question, uninstalling Office rarely removes the corresponding Office12 (or whatever version number) folder from ProgramFiles, so I guess that's where it's coming from.

Which version is your Office 2010? If 32 bit, then the fact that your OS is 54 bit would make no difference.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee624351.aspx\

I know that my hard disk has the required space and pretty sure my RAM is capable. what I'm not sure of is the display thing and "computer and processor". Can someone tell me where I look to see if my machine is compatible with this upgrade for these two things? Or if anyone knows of any issues doing this, please chime in.

thanks so much!!

If you Publish a Snapshot using Speccy, we can take an in-depth look at your computer's hardware and provide more info. I would bet your computer can run Office 2010, it's just a matter of how slow it will be (depending on the age and speed of your hardware).

Hi,

Is it possible to have both Office 2003 and 2010 installed on the same computer? (I have licenses for both of them. Some family members prefer the old one, some prefer the new one. That's why.)

If so what are the exact steps to do it? I tried it but 2003 didn't open anymore (it showed error messages)
Also I read updates are not going to work anymore if I do this. Are there any more updates being released for the 2003 edition?
The computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 so it's an x86-only Office (I know it's not possible to mix x86-x64 Office versions but it lets me install 2010 without upgrading the older one)

Also I want to set and keep the older Office as the default handler for all filetypes it supports. How do I do that? 2010 is keep overriding it.

Hello ish4dow

I had both editions of Office 2003 and 2010 installed on my laptop but they did not work so well together
as 2010 was a trial version I just deleted it. So I am not sure if it possible or not maybe other members might be able to shed some light .

I want office 2003 to be the deflated and I can open the document with office 2010.

I installed the two programs in different folders
 

A:how to work with both MS office 2003 and 2010 ?

This is normal when two or more versions of Office is installed.
You are going to have to live with this constant installing each time you change versions, or get yourself another machine or install some virtual OS.

Hi,

I installed a trial for Microsoft office 2010 when I was working on some college work to see if it would be worth upgrading. I have microsoft office 2003 already on my laptop. When the trial finished I unistalled the 2010 version but now when i try to open documents from e-mails it wont open up in the 2003 version. I have to then open up e.g word and find the file from there. Any ideas how i can change the settings to make Microsoft office 2003 the default for my documents.

Thanks

Susan

Hi Guys, I recently installed Office 2010 and love it, trouble is I was importing my PST files and the PC froze on me and I had to hard reboot. Sadly all the PST file was not imported correctly, have tried importing it again but it won't let me. So now I want to completely un-install Office and make sure the PST file is also removed and then reinstall it all again any tips please. I don't want any remnants at all left. Thanks

This is the version you would need to pay for after 30 days, but if only using it to uninstall MSO 2010 the pro version (which is the link above) is best for cleaning out all traces.

Is it possible to install the 3 different version of Microsoft Office within the same PC? If so, in which sequence? ascending or decending order?

A:Microsoft Office (2003 + 2007 + 2010)

In short, NO, not without a bit of hassle at least.
But why would you like to do so in the first place if I may ask?

Since support is about to end for 2003 version, I think that it may be time to change. If I go to either 2007 or 2010 version, I think that I understand that "opening and reading" an "XLS" file will not be any problem since you can use the
Compatibility Pack". I am not so sure about the templates ( XLT ) files. Will I be able to continue those files, because I use them on a daily basis. Will an XLT file open and be able to be used in either 2007 or 2010 ?

A:Changing from Office 2003 to either 2007 or 2010

XLS files can still be opened. Supposedly it is possible that some things might appear a little different when opening them with newer versions, but I've never found this to be true. And while I can't tell you for sure, I'm 98% sure XLT files will open just fine too. Basically you can open old format files in newer versions of Office, but you can't open newer format files with older Office versions.

What's the difference between the 3? Or is there any difference? I was thinking about upgrading down the road sometime but not sure I will.

Currently I'm very happy with my Office 2003. It works well for me.

Hi everyone..

Installed MSO 2010 Beta, separately from my MSO 2003 (alongside 2003) found 2010 a little too difficult to configure/use(that ribbon thing), so I uninstalled it. It appeared to go ok, but upon my using 2003, everything is bolded now (appears unread) and clicking on an email, doesnt mark an email "read" when I click on it. Doesnt change if I "Mark All Read" either.

Anyone have anything similar? Cant mark emails read?

My company recently installed Windows 7 and Office 2010. Every time I try to open a excel file, via a link on our Intranet it asks for credentials.

I ruled out IE, firewall, and the document. I narrowed it down to something in Excel except i can't find it. Its like a security setting.

I was able to open the file when I had Office XP installed but as soon as i installed Office 2010 it won't work.

I've gone into the Trust Center and change settings but nothing seems to help. A pervious answer was given (http://www.sevenforums.com/microsoft...cs-2010-a.html) but it didn't work.

Any Ideas

Unable to install Office 2010. [The language of this installation package is not supported by your system]

Not sure what that means, what language are they talking about.

Can anyone help please.

(The disc is English and my computer is English using Windows 7 HP)

A:Office 2010 Installation problem

There are many versions of English. Check your computer in control panel under "languages & settings" to see what version of English you are using & then check the Office 2010 DVD to make sure they are the same. Changing your computer language setting may cause problems in some applications so this should be avoided.

I managed to run Keyfinder on a computer before doing a clean install of XP.

There were several versions of office apps installed, Word 2002, Excel 2003, and a Unidentifiable Office 2010 installation.

I want to skip the previous versions and go ahead and install the 2010 installation, but which is it? Not sure if its a complete Office install or just Word, etc.

I have the product ID and the product key, but how can I use the product ID to find what it is? I looked online but all I can find is how to find the product ID which I already have :SMH:
