Windows 7: Getting Office to play nice

Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu 9.04

Hmm... could I take the serial that my Virtual PC uses and stick that in VMWare? It should work, right? As I don't have a *spare* XP key...

I suppose I could email the tech services at my university and ask if they had to do anything special to make two versions of Word co-exist... there's really no reason they wouldn't tell me how they did it.

Or is Word 2003 easier to use alongside 2007 than 2000?

Ah, well, I got it.

That registry thing from the very beginning actually worked perfectly. The problem was I typed it "NoReg" instead of "NoReReg", so it obviously didn't work. Now both versions of Office run perfectly side-by-side without using a VM!
