You can install and use 2 versions of Office at the same time except OUTLOOK.
It's not recommended, but is possible.

Do a Google for "office 2003 and 2007 on same computer"
Here is one MS thread about this:
Information about using 2007 Office suites and programs on a computer that is running another version of Office

What features are in Office 2003 that you need, and are not in Office 2007?

I had a look at your screeshot and it is exactly as I suspected. You have 4 primary partitions and cannot create any other partition (at least not without running into great difficulties called 'dynamics').

Given your level of system knowledge you may just want to leave the partitioning as is. But if you want to venture into a new territory, we will be glad to guide you.

Running XP in Virtual Box is easy. Here is a tutorial that was written for Windows 8 - but it is the same for XP. Only 1 setting in vBox is different. VirtualBox - Install Windows 8

The OP said that there was something 2003 would not do that 2007 did do and vice-versa. Does anyone know of anything like this?

If you want to add another partition then use Partition Wizard CD to convert D to Logical, shrink it and add as many Logical partitions as you want: How to set partition as Primary or Logical.

With Excel 2003 if I create a custom tool bar I can add my own pictures on to the buttons to represent what each button does. with Excel 2007 you cant. You can only add the pictures microsoft supply

VB code in excel 2003 does not always work in excel 2007.

So I can have my choice of picture on the custom tool bar button I require Excel 2003, so my macros will work when distrubuted to users with 2007 I have to convert to Excel 2007 and create the marcos there.

I think I may have found a work around thats easy for me. Its not ideal but I can live with it. My TV will take a VGA input. I can connect my old windows xp pc that has all my old programs on to my TV.

I appreciate the advice given and will look at the tutorials offfered.

In case you missed it, 2003 will install to Windows 7.

Have you worked any with Windows 8? I was just curious if MS Office 2003 was going to be compatible for that. Do you know?
