Windows 7: Office 2003 Unusual Behaviour after Installation in WIN 7

Office 2003 Unusual Behaviour after Installation in WIN 7

I have used MS Office 2003 when installed in XP Pro for some time ,
specifically in using WORD and EXCEL.

Recently , I have installed WIN 7 into a Dual Boot setup with XP . I
have XP installed in a 15Gbte Partition and WIN 7 in 20 Gbte
Partition.

When booted , both of these Apps appear as being installed
in the C:\Partition which is 15 Gbts and 20 Gbts depending on which
OS is booted.

Both XP and WIN 7 use MS Office and access WORD and EXCEL with the
following respective paths :-

XP(32 bit)
C:\Prog Files\MS Office\OFFICE 11\

WIN 7(64 bit)
C:\Prog Files(x86)\MS Office\OFFICE 11\

The "odd behaviou" referred to in the heading to this post is that ,
whenever I attempt to start either WORD or Excel or any ".doc" file or
".xml" file in WIN 7 I get a pop up requesting me to accept the
Licence Agreement. When this is accepted but not until it is , the App opens and works normally.

I have already Authenticated this installation in WIN 7 as I did previously before the Dual Boot was set up with the Installation in XP.

Can anyone explain why this Acceptance Request only appears when I use MS Office 2003 in WIN 7 but not when I boot into XP ?

To resolve the problem:
  1. Log on to the computer by using a user account that has administrative credentials.
  2. Start an Office program, such as Word. The End User License Agreement dialog box appears.

    Note For Windows Vista, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Office, right-click an Office program, click Run as administrator, and then click Continue.
  3. Click I Accept.
  4. Exit the Office program that you just started.
  5. Repeat step 2 to step 4 for the other Office programs that still prompt you with the EULA.
The above procedure is quoted from You must accept the Office End User License Agreement every time that you start an Office program. Might be worth reading through the rest of the info in the article.

Since I replied to this thread I have now deleted XP from the Dual Boot Setup and now have a single WIN 7 system.

However , when I now boot either MS Word or MS Xcel 2003 , the same problem has re-surfaced , i.e. I get the request to ACCEPT the EULA each time.

The solution given originally in this Post is not appropriate in my case here as I don't have the option to click "Run as administrator" as this option does nor appear in WIN 7 when I right click in the appropiate Office program.

Can you suggest a solution in this case?
