Hi! I have decided to install Office 2010 on my PC which has Office 2007. I wonder if by installing Office 2010 I will lose Office 2007. The reason I want to know is I use a language pack for 2007 and would need to buy a new language pack for 2010 if I can't keep 2007.

Thank you in advance for your information.

Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 on my system Mar 5, 2013

Hi,

I have Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 installed on my system (WinXP 32-bit). They can live together harmoniously.

Some things to pay attention to:

- When installing a higher version, be sure to clear the checkbox 'Remove older version'.

- You might want to modify your Registry (by adding a key) to prevent 2007 and 2010 re-registering themselves every time after you've switched versions:

Thank you for the information Mar 5, 2013

Hi Hans,

Thank you for the information. Now I know why I wasn't able to keep the previous versions of Office--I used the default installation settings. Now that I can have both Word 2007 and Word 2010, I don't need to buy the language pack for Office 2010:)
Outlook is no probem--I will not even install that email client.

How to use or apply registry keys to prevent Word setup from running? Mar 7, 2013

Hi! I have successfully installed MS Office 2010 without removing Office 2007. However, every time I switch between Word 2010 and 2007, it would trigger the setup process which takes time.

I found I can prevent this by using the following registry keys:


reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice14.0WordOptions /f /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice14.0ExcelOptions /f /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice14.0PowerPointOptions /f /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice14.0AccessOptions /f /v NoRepairNeeded /t REG_DWORD /d 1

reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0WordOptions /f /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0ExcelOptions /f /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0PowerPointOptions /f /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0AccessOptions /f /v NoRepairNeeded /t REG_DWORD /d 1


Does anyone know how to add these registry keys to Windows 7 registry? (I installed Office 2010, 32 bit version).

Thank you so much for sharing your expertise!
