Hi,

I have MS Office 2003 (only Word, Excel, Power Point).
I have MS Office 2007 (only Excel).
I have MS Office 2013 (complete including Outlook).

I am using Windows 7 on I3 processor.
I want all these installations simultaneously because I have clients who want support in all these versions. I want to keep my copy (2013) as default. How do I install these packages (what order and settings) so that I keep one (2013) as default, and others still available in support.

San.

On a system that has never had Office installed, simply install in version order: 2003, 2007, 2013.

You might have problems when switching between versions whereby a lengthy reconfiguration process takes place. Googling will turn up many pages such as this one on the Microsoft support forum:

The fixes are to patch the registry, This one is for Word 2007
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1

Thanks. I trust this will keep my latest version as the default one. Also I need to install in different locations.
