Q: Solved: Installing Office 2007 over Office 2003??

Hello
I currently have Office 2003 Student full version installed on my computer. I have received Office Professional Plus 2007 Student media version. Do I need to uninstall Version 2003 prior to installing 2007 or will installation of version 2007 automatically uninstall version 2003. Does all the information in my .pst file convert as necessary for use in Outlook 2007. There are two discs, one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" and the other one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 (Microsoft Office Communicator 2007". I'm guessing that the disk with the shorter title "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" would be the correct one to install. What is the second disk with Communicator? My system is Windows XP SP2, AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core Processor, 3800+ 1.99 Ghz 2GB Ram.
Thanks

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?
 

A:Installing Office 2010 on a machine with Office 2003/2007

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.

Have you checekd what the Microsoft Support site says?

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

A:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

Can anyone tell me how to re-install Microsoft Office? I've just had to do a complete re-install of Windows XP Media Center 2005 Edition (as a parallel, repair function was not working on the original version) after a blue screen error nightmare followed by issues with the keyboard and mouse not being recognized.

Hi all.
Is it possible to run MS Office 2003 and MS office 2007 on the same machine.
I teach I.T. and many of my students, as well as the school computer labs have office 2003. For this reason I need 2003 on my machine.
That said I also am seen as the computer guru by fellow collegues, so often find myself sorting out their computer problems or giving advice on how to merge tables in word or create mark shedules in excel. Many of them have 2007, which is very different. Thus running 2007 seems like a good idea.
So is it possible to have both versions running on the same machine?
At this point I am using windows XP - tablet edition.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I am running on Windows XP SP2 that is regularly updated. Thank you

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.

The second screen had this:
Installation Error: File not Found

A required installation file SKU1E3.CAB could not be found.

Before, I'd hit cancel and MS Word '03 would get to working anyway. Then I'd close it and go into Word 07. I think there was some error message, but I don't remember it. Now, I just uninstalled an Office '07 trial. The same thing is happening again, but now when I hit cancel, it says "fatal error during installation." It's a different error message from the one I got last time.

I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!
I think Microsoft will be losing many many customers with this one.

I have a new thinkpad laptop that came installed with Office Professional 2007 trial. I have an existing license for Office 2003 Small Business which I was running on my prior laptop.

While I like the enhancements made to 2007 (vs 2003), I definitely don't need all the modules that come with Professional (publisher, business contact manager). From what I've read, if I don't convert the trial to the same version, I will have to uninstall and re-install the version that I choose.

So, it seems that I have the following options:

1) Upgrade my existing 2003 license to 2007 Small Business (I'm not sure whether or not I will need to install 2003 before I install 2007 for the "upgrade" licensing to work)

2) Install 2003 Small Business and wait until Office 2010 comes out and upgrade at that point.

3) Buy Office Home and Student 2007 and Outlook 2007 as separate modules and install (from what I can tell this is is about $60 less than the Small Business upgrade and has the modules that I use regularly).

I would love to hear input/comments/suggestions on what my best course of action is. I don't want to be penny-wise and pound foolish and I want to keep my new laptop efficient and running smoothly.

Thanks in advance for your help!

A:Office 2007 vs Office 2003 for new Win 7 64-bit laptop

I would wait until Office 2010 comes out because it will have added features and most likely will work better than 2007. You don't want to buy 2007 now and then want to buy 2010 later.

That's just what I would do personally, but do whatever you feel is best for you.

Hi Tech Guys,

I currently use Office XP (2002) and need to install Office 2003 to use emails I was using on another machine.

I deleted Office XP using Control Panel add and Remove Programs, backed up my Outlook .pst file, changed the name of my .pst file from Outlook to Outlook2 for extra security, and ran the disk to install Office 2003 (this disk has been used before and should work).

The Office 2003 disk would not complete as it does not find some .cab files. When I check the disk these .cab files are there so I don't understand.

Hi,
I've just bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Vista installed. Originally I took off the Office 2007 trial(beta)ware. Installed my Office 2003 and every time I opened (or launched an app) I got a "windows is installing config..." You know the story. I found no fix so I figured I could use that copy (2003) on an XP machine for my son. Got a brand new copy of Office Pro 2007, etc, installed it AND I have same d-mn problem to a T.

Additionally when opening Excel I get an alert box with "stdole32.tlb" and thats all it says. This alert only occurs with Excel. When I dismiss the box (alert window) then it starts running a "Process Configuring..." event, as does Winword, Powerpoint, Publisher, etc. I have checked the register IAW MS KB and the factor is in the registry with a valid path.

Outlook is not an issue as I prefer not to use it.

Anyone know how to fix this, I would be VERY grateful. I might even donate my first born son or something.

I have a friend asking me if it's worth it to buy Office 2007 or should she buy Office 2003? (I think she has the option of either right now through her school (although that might be bad info and they might only sell her 2003 right now if she tried to buy it).

Anyone know of any compelling reason to go with one over the other?

Thanks in advance for any input you can give,

Wdm

I have MS office 2003 installed in my desktop with windows xp. Most of the documents which I receive of late is in 'docx' format of 2007. I installed the file format converter to read word 2007 documents in my word 2003. After a couple of months, this develops errors and I am not able to read 2007 documents. Sometimes even after reinstalling the whole 2003, followed by format converter to read 2007 documents, it develops errors.

Can I install MS office 2007 in another location keeping MS office 2003 in its present location?
Can both of them co exist? or would 2007 remove 2003 and upgrade to 2007.

Kindly advise. Thank you.

hello,
I have Office 2007 Basic and Office 2003 Basic. I was just wondering, what is the difference between the two versions?

A:Office 2007 Vs Office 2003

In MS Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the new Ribbon system which can get confusing, but is a real help at times. There are many cool features on Office 2007 that are nice, but not necessarily needed. Office 2007 saves its files in a different format (.docx), but still supports the standard .doc format. All in all I find MS Office 2007 very useful and more powerful than Office 2003, but 2003 is excellent, and gets the job done nicely. Most changes are GUI based in Office 2007.

Hello folks! I have a "tight" question. I'm in search for two spellcheckers of Russian language. One I will use with my Office 2k3, and other one (another computer) with Office 2k7. I only find something in that regards on Microsoft's web page for $225 for 2K3 and $275 for 2k7, and that will change my whole interface to Russian, but all I need is to add a Russian spellcheck to both of my offices. Please help. Freeware is very WELCOME!
Thank you!

I had installed Office 2007 at work and found everything to be far to slow to make any of the new bells and whistles worth-while.

So I uninstalled 2007 and installed 2003 today and I've had a number of problems most of which were solved by just going to the microsoft update site and installing 2003 service packs.

My (hopefully) last issue is with email. Outlook is working fine, but if I like on a "mailto:" link either on the web or in an email, I get the following error:

Windows Internet Explorer could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not proberly installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I am now getting an "install" request for my office 2003 teacher/student edition after uninstalling the trial 2007 that came with my new VISTA laptop. I saw a previous post that indicated it could be a virus (asking for sku111 file). I tried to access the Panda and Trendmicro free scans , but they seem to be as unhappy with VISTA as I.

A:Solved: uninstalled office 2007 trial and now have 2003 issues

While I cannot guarantee that there isn't malware listed above, the problem of Office installation requests is due to the uninstall process for Office 2007. From personal experience I can tell you that the uninstallation of programs (quite frequently when manufactured by MS) causes a number of problems for prior versions. For me, the resolution was to uninstall all Office products and reinstall Office 2003.

The annoying install requests can be cancelled and the application of choice will continue opening until you uninstall and reinstall. You shouldnt lose anything since the office installations don't really affect "My Documents" or other data folders.

Hello,

I have a problem installing MS Office Professional 2007.

Here are the details:

7. I clicked on Yes, and a window opened up saying: "1 program still needs to close: Waiting for Microsoft Office Professional 2007. This program is preventing Windows from restarting." The options were "Force Restart" or "Cancel".

I am wondering how to install Office 2007 over Office XP.
Do I just install Office 2007? Should I uninstall Office XP first? after?
Will there be an impact on Outlook?
Running XP on a Toshiba Portege 4010 laptop

Just trying to avoid problems before I cause them.
Thank you.
 

A:Installing Office 2007 over Office XP

When you install Office 2007, it will find Office XP and ask if you want to replace it. If you say "no," it will install 2007 in a different directory, keeping both versions of Office with one exception. You cannot have more than one version of Outlook, so regardless of what you choose, Outlook will be replaced.

I wanted to install outlook (office) 2003 to solve this. I removed office
XP with Control Panel and ran a good disc to install office 2003. The
installation stopped several times when the wizard could not find certain
.cab files, but when I checked the disc the files were on the disc.... ? I
tried this several times with the same result.....

I have an older laptop Toshiba Portege 4010 933MHz, 750 MB RAM, 20 GB HD
capacity with 7.25 GB free, running XP Pro SP3, AVG and Malwarebytes...

Tips? Ideas? Solutions?
Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Problem installing Office 2003

Try to copy the disc on your hard drive. If there is read-error present on the disc, you will not be able to copy all files. If not, try to install it from hard drive itself.
