Problems with Office 2007

Tried to install Office 2007 as an upgrade over 2003. Now I can't use either versions as everytime I try a windows installer pop appears and tells me it can't find installation source (I have discs, but can't get it to read from them)it is wanting "MAINSP2op.msp". I can uninstall office 2007 (which I've done), but I can't repair or remove office 2003 to start fresh. trying to reisntall service Pack 2 for Office 2003 also did not work and system restore does not remove all aspects of office 2007. I am at my wits end and would dearly love any help anyone can provide. I have Windows XP

Installation of Microsoft Office 2007

Office 2007 is an older version of the Microsoft Office suite created before Office 2010. If you have an installation DVD and product key for Office 2007, you can install it. Once Office 2007 is installed, you'll have access to an email, spreadsheet and text editing software suite.

1. Insert the installation DVD into your computer.

2. Type in the product key in the window that appears, click "Continue" then click "I accept the terms of this agreement" and click "Continue" again.

3. Click the "Install" button if you have no other versions of Office installed on y our computer, or click "Upgrade" if you have Office 2003 installed and wish to upgrade.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Hi. There may be conflicts on the registry that were left after you installed Office 2007. Try to uninstall both software completely using Add/Remove in Windows, restart the computer before reinstalling Office 2003.

Can't install microsoft office small business 2007 upgrade

The upgrade version is only to upgrade a previous version of MS office. The trial version does not qualify as previous version to be upgraded. You need to purchase the full product rather than the upgrade.

If you know somebody who has MS office 2003 with a valid product key, you could install that version, and then upgrade it with the product that you purchased

Unable to install ms office 2007, upgrading from Office 2003

please first uninstall all the existing versions of MS Office. Then try to clean temporary files, cache and registry using tools like cCleaner (freely availavle), then install MS Office.

if you want to install only MS Office 2007, no need to install MS office 2003 and upgrade. directly install MS Office 2007.

If you want to keep both, pleas install MS office 2003 first, then MS office 2007, please dont uograde it, rather select Keep both version.

Please make sure that you have admin permission before doing all this and your system is free from any virus.

Office 2003 Install failure on new computer.

I am not really sure, but I think that 2003 and 2007 use the same file names and some files may have gotton overwritten when you installed, so the app gets this file that is too advanced for the version or not advanced enough. Hope that helps.

My advice, uninstall both programs and ONLY INSTALL 1 version (2003 OR 2007)

:-) Good Luck

Windows Vista and Office Pro 2003

hi, yes you can install office 2003 while you already have office 2007. you just need to change the installation directory when you launch the setup for office 2003. change it into something apart from what office 2007 already is installed in. so what you're trying to say is that you should be entitled to an upgrade to office 2007 if office 2003 doesn't work? i would maybe think so... but no solid answer for that one.
