I have bought a new laptop containing Windows Vista.
Office Pro 2007 was already installed.
I have an officially licensed version of Office Pro 2003 which I would like to use on this laptop.
Can I install it with Office Pro 2007 already installed??
If Office 2003 does not work with Windows Vista, would I not be entitled for an Office Pro 2007 upgrade rather?
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.

Yes, but you will need to make sure if the version of Outlook that you have is comaptible to windows 7.
Officially only Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 are supported to run on Windows 7. This is similar to Windows Vista which also did not support earlier versions of Outlook. You can install a version prior to Outlook 2003 on Windows 7 though but there are several issues which you could encounter.
In addition to these version requirements, even with Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 there are several compatibility issues which you could encounter on Windows 7. The most critical of these issues have been taken care off in prior service pack releases. So before starting Outlook on Windows 7, make sure your first apply at least Service Pack 3 for Office 2003 and Service Pack 2 for Office 2007.
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
Hi, Usually with the new computer, its common that you get a MS Office 2007 TRIAL version. However, that can't be made a full version unless we buy it.. So, friend i kindly suggest you to go for a new copy or you can install the 2003 version that you already have. There is an old saying that says : "Old is Gold" Cheers!!! Have a nice day!!!
you should completely un install the office suite before installing it again. If you can, I would greatly suggest, using the last good restore point before the main crash, this will put the registry back to original too.
If it is a "new" computer, and Office 2003 and Adobe 7.0 Professional came "pre-installed" on your computer, then take everything back to where you bought the computer, and get them to assist you. If they are at all a "responsible" retailer, they will support the products that they have sold to you.
If you have your own copy of Office 2003, and you are trying to install it, then start Vista's "Program Compatibility Wizard", and select that you want to install an "XP" program, and select the CD-ROM as the "source" for the software that you want to install.
Vista will wrap an "envelope" around Office 2003, to emulate a Windows XP environment.
in new laptops loaded with vista, only Vista is legitimate but Office 2007 is a 90-day trial software. you need to purchase the key code from microsoft. but if piracy is not an issue to you, visit the piratebay dot org
