If you have Office 2007 installed on a pc, would it be possible to re-install Word 2003 (just Word) as well? It is running on Windows XP.

Yes Jul 12, 2007

I tried the demo version of 2007 (actually it was for a job). It seems to work fine side-by-side with Office 2003, although the context menu (right-click) menu "Open with" messes up. When I had to reinstall Office 2003 because of some accumulated problems, it worked fine too.

Just tried that combination Jul 12, 2007


I've just tried that Office combination. Namely, I installed Office 2007 (complete) and then Word 2003. At first, everything seemed to be working just fine. Starting Word 2003 caused no problems, but when I tried to start Office 2007 program, the pop-up window saying I need to insert Office 2007 disc appeared. I did that and after short "installation" procedure Word 2007 started without problems. Then, I started Word 2003 and guess what? The same pop-up message appearedicon_smile.gif. So, if it doesen't bother you to switch disks every time you start the "opposite" Office version, fine. Ohterwise, use Office 2003 only. Those were the symptoms on my computer.
