Here's what mine looks like; you're getting the same SKU as I have, so it should be similar:

Got the box today. It's shrink wrapped, got the Certificate of Authenticity (with ribbon cut), a product key, and all docs.
If it is a fake, it's a darned good one!

Installation later. Will post.

Can you install Office 2010 programs right next to Office 2003 products without problems? Or is it best to uninstall the 2003 stuff?

Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, obviously - won't need em. But how about Office Publisher 2003? Not that I'm keeping it, just a curiosity really.

I've got Office Project 2007 installed too. It's in the same Programs folder (Microsoft Project). I'd like to leave that alone if I can, as it is a one license - one PC deal.

Advice please!

I think you can install Office 2010 32-bit alongside Office 2003, I couldn't install Office 2010 64-bit because I had Office FrontPage 2003 on the computer, had a warning to uninstall that first so I did and it was good timing as my Domain Hosting Service was moving away from FrontPage extensions. Office 2010 is the first to be offered as either 32-bit or 64-bit. Of course the 64-bit version has to be on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Hi there

If you want Office 2003 and 2010 - especially the 64 bit version together why not make a SMALL windows Virtual machine -- could even be XP - doesn't need to access the Internet - for your Office 2003 installation -- the whole VM would run easily in 500 MB RAM !! - you wouldn't even notice it !!! and of course you can share data between host and your VM running Office 2003.

Use vmplayer (free) to create your VM.

Cheers

No, I can't think of any practical reason to run both at the same time. This question is more along the lines of are there any problems doing this - bugs, glitches, gremlins - that sort of thing.

2003 is 32 bit, and I would like to install 2010 64 bit.

You might want to take a look at this---which might add further confusion:

Choose the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Office - Word

Oh fun. I'm think I'm going to install this on my test PC first. The one I keep in the basement chained to a pole. I can trash and re-image to my hearts content there. No time for that on my work PC.
