Create a office 2003 with sp2 Msi file


I need a way to create a office 2003 Msi which can uninstall office 2007 which is already there and install office 2003 without any user interface.

1 Solution
That sounds tricky. In the normal course of things, the 2007 version would 'upgrade' the 2003 version, so trying to convince the MSI that the reverse should be done will not be simple.

There are a couple of theoretical possiblities, but I'm not really an MSI expert to that level.

I would be inclined to treat this as a two step process;

1 - Uninstall Office 2007
2 - Install Office 2003

Depending on the size of the deployment, the trick will probably be in making sure they both happen in the right order and the process actually completing.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
