Hi,
Are there any potential problems when installing Word 2007 on a computer on which I already have Word 2003 installed? What should the directory structure be?
Thanks,
Larry

LarryLester,

There are no problems whatsoever.  In fact, that's the default way it would be installed, as Microsoft Office does not upgrade previous versions when being installed.

What should the directory structure be?  The installer will automatically install Word 2007 to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12, while the 2003 version is in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11.
