We have a Windows 7 Pro workstation that had Office 2007 on it. The Publisher in the Office 2007 version stopped working. We have Office 365 Business license so we downloaded Office 2016 and installed it. Publisher 2016 works fine. Word and Excel etc seemed fine.
WE have both Office 2007 now and 2016 the user is using 2016. After a few days they are telling me that when they click on a
Word 97-Word2003 doc in windows explorer it tries to install or configure Word 2007. Supposedly this didn't happen after first installing Office/Word 2016. If we cancel the "install/configuration" of 2007 it opens the file in Word 2007. The File can also be opened instantly from within Word 2016. I can't figure out how to make Word 2016 the default and stop Word 2007 from trying to setup/install when clicking on a Word 97-2003 doc in windows explorer.
Should I uninstall Office 2007 and will that break something in Office 2016?
