Windows 7: Can Office 2003 and 2007 co-exist on one computer?

Can Office 2003 and 2007 co-exist on one computer?

I would like to install Office 2007 in addition to an already installed Office 2003.

Is this possible (under WinXP) or do they interfere each other?

There were people running them together - although I don't know whether it was XP or Vista.

I am running this in 7 home premium 64...

I have Word, Excel & Outlook 2007 and also using Access, Powerpoint & Publisher 2003. Works fine for me.

Suppose to go further, I am NOT running Word 03 & 07 at the same time, so not sure how that will work for you if that's your plan.

Good Luck.

the later version will supercede it's earlier counterpart, where necessary..
I have the Student version of Office2000 running alongside Office2007 Standard edition and everything works fine..

Has anybody tried to run 2007 and 2010 beta together?

You can run pretty much any versions of office suites together. The exception is that you can only have one installed version of outlook.

Sounds good since I do not use Outlook. But did you actually run 2007 and 2010 together. I remember some guys had problems with 2003 and 2007 together - others had no problems.

I've had both installed at the same time without any issues. I finally uninstalled 2007 since I don't use it anymore.
