Hi,

I am working on setting up a training project and my question is this

Can I set up multiple versions of MS Office (specifically 2003, 2007 & 2010) into one computer under different user profiles without causing any conflicts?

If this was indeed possible, What OS would you recommend? XP or Win7

Thanks

MK

HI,
I have currently setup Office 2007 and Office 2003 on the same computer, same profile. I am running windows XP. So I would recommend XP since I am not familiar with Win 7.

Hi

Yes it is possible and I have done this - though it was a few version back that I did it.

There may be different issues you will face depending upon which versions of office you want to co-exist.

There are also specific issues with co-existing different versions of Outlook.

As a starting point I suggest you look at the Microsoft KB article  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290576

This categorises the risks, issues and best practices (reccomended order of install etc) - depending on the versions you want to co-exist and on which platform.

Best of luck

Multiple versions of Office can co-exist on the same PC, and they will generally work OK..  install in version order (e.g. 2003 before 2007) and note that only one version of Outlook can be installed (have to do custom installs to deselect it where needed).
