Solved: How can I open Office 2010 documents on a computer that has only Office 2003?

Q: Solved: How can I open Office 2010 documents on a computer that has only Office 2003?

I'm running Windows 7 on my new computer, which came with a trial version of Office 2010. Rather than buy the full version when the trial expired, I installed the Office 2003 I had on my old -- now dead -- computer. I now find that I can't open the Word and Excel files I created with the 2010 version. Is there a 'cloud' site where I could send the 2010 files and have them returned to me as standard .xls and .doc files? Or is there a free converter available for download?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978551


Starting on December 11, 2009, customers who use Office 2003 will be unable to open Office 2003 documents that are protected with the Active Directory Rights Management Service (AD RMS) or with Rights Management Services (RMS). Customers will also be unable to save Office 2003 documents that are protected with AD RMS/RMS.

Users may receive the following error message when they try to open AD RMS-protected or RMS-protected documents by using Office 2003:

"Unexpected error occurred. Please try again later or contact your system administrator"

Scope: This symptom affects Office 2003 products that are used together with AD RMS/RMS. This includes Word 2003, Excel 2003, PowerPoint 2003, and Outlook 2003. This does not affect the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

Cause:
The expiry date for the license information within the definition file that is used by Office 2003 to enable IRM functionality is set to December 10, 2009. This problem occurs because the expiry date was not renewed. Click to expand...

Hi,


I need to have Office 2003 and Office 2010 installed on the same computer. They won't be running at the same time, but both will be used occassionally so both of them must be installed.

I read somewhere that this is not officially supported but possible.


What's the proper way of doing so? Do I install the Office 2003 first and then 2010?

Is there a way to prevent the setup from running each time I'm switching between the versions? It takes up a lot of time and I think it's unneccessarry.

I want to set Office 2003 as default and I want Office 2010 to start ONLY if I start it manually or I choose to open a file only supported by the new version (like docx etc)

Hello,

since I installed SP1 for Office 2010 I have problems with opening some (not all!) older Word documents created with Word 2003 (*.doc). I get a message that Word can't read the document and it is probably corrupt.

On a other client (same OS, Office 2010 without SP1) I can open the same document without difficulty.

Has anyone an idea?

Thank a lot

A:Office 2010 SP1: Problem with opening Word 2003 documents

Hello curuska, welcome to the forum.

Are the two computers accessing the exact same document from the same location, or is the same file saved to their own local disk?

A quick test to try:
Open Word, select File?> Open
Choose the corrupted file (but don?t open it yet)
You will notice that next to where it says ?Open?, there is a little drop-down arrow. Click on this and change the option to ?Open and Repair?, then click on it.

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
 
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

My Office package will not open any of my documents when I click them. It opens the required program, but has no document in it, but if I then double click the document again (while the program is open) it opens fine.

I can open and save document from within the programs, its just the actual documents will not open. When I boot into diagnostic mode they work fine, when I boot inot safe mode they work fine.

I do not have any antivirus software running. I am on Windows XP service pack 2 and also my Office software is up-to-date. Any help please as I'm getting frustrated!

Hi,

Every time I try to open any of my Word or Excel files, my coomputer tries to install MS Office 2003 & it asks me for the product Key Number. I don't have MS Office 2003 & so I don't have a key number. I have MS Office 2000. So I can't open any of my documents.. This has been happening ever since I downloaded MS's Windows Desktop Search. So I guess the problem is connected to that. How do I get my computer to simply use the software that I have, MS Office 2000, instead of trying to install something new that I don't have? I'm using Windows XP Home. Thanks.

Did you try uninstalling the Desktop search and see if it still does it.

Not sure if it is a Windows Installer problem or not. You may need to run the Windows Installer Cleanup utility.

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

A:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.

I ruled out IE, firewall, and the document. I narrowed it down to something in Excel except i can't find it. Its like a security setting.

I was able to open the file when I had Office XP installed but as soon as i installed Office 2010 it won't work.

I did an upgrade installation from Office 2003 PRO to Office 2010 PRO. I had several issues with Access denied on C:\Config.msi. I usually select retry and all is well. I think I may have missed one of the retries before I did the system restart.
Now I get an error 2203 whenever I reboot, and the Office 2003 installer keeps popping up anytime I try to do anything.
I tried uninstalling Office 2003 and was told that I had a corrupted install. I tried re-installing it and it seems to just hang.
I also tried to uninstall and repair Office 2010.

I'm at a loss at this point.

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?

Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.

- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it

I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.

A:PLEASE HELP RESOLVE OFFICE 2003 AND OFFICE 2010 CONFLICT

 When you switch between an Office 2010 program and an older Office program, it goes through that configuring process.  I read somewhere that this is because each version of Office has entries in the registry with the same names but are set differently so it has to go through this little gooney bird dance.  If it's the ribbons (and lack of the menu bar) you don't like in Office 2010, there's a neat little program called Ubitmenu you can download and install that gives you an old style menu bar with most of the Office 2003 features on it.
 
Good luck.

Hi,

Is it possible to have both Office 2003 and 2010 installed on the same computer? (I have licenses for both of them. Some family members prefer the old one, some prefer the new one. That's why.)

If so what are the exact steps to do it? I tried it but 2003 didn't open anymore (it showed error messages)
Also I read updates are not going to work anymore if I do this. Are there any more updates being released for the 2003 edition?
The computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 so it's an x86-only Office (I know it's not possible to mix x86-x64 Office versions but it lets me install 2010 without upgrading the older one)

Also I want to set and keep the older Office as the default handler for all filetypes it supports. How do I do that? 2010 is keep overriding it.

In the end I need a license for 2010.

1) via Dell
2) via MS
3) box store
4) on line store amazon ?

I would say, BOX Store, and get only what you need. If Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Onenotes is fine, then get the Home and student. This comes with a license for three (3) machines, for less than $150.00 US.
But if you need Outlook, then you will have to get the Pro version or better.

A:office 2003 upgrade to office 2010

There's no upgrade license for Office 2010. It should install just fine over whatever version you have, and it will install just fine on a computer without any previous version installed.

I have been running Office 2003 since it first came out and continue to run it on virtually all my computers. I have one recently purchased computer with Win7 and thought I would try Office 2010. Aside from the amazingly awkward interface and organization of things, I have noticed:

far more problems with corrupted files in Office2010 than in Office2003
Further, when I send documents via email between computers I find that some .docx files arrive as .dat files. Does not ever happen when files are simply move across the network
xls files created in xl2003 run much faster in their native environment than when translated into xl2010 and run in that environment (benchmarks on the two computers suggest that they are about = re performance)

Has anyone had similar problems

I was successful in installing Office 2003, activating it, and updating in Windows 7, but every time I open any one of the Office apps I have to click accept on the EULA box.† Is there any workaround to make the box go away permanently?

I now have a new problem, before I managed to open 2007 files by opening Office 2010 and then from inside the application choosing to open a file. The problem I have though is if I just try to open an Office 2007 file then I can't open it, and I can't change the default program to open it.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello,

I am running Office 2003 on Windows 7. My PC is only 6 months old and everything has been running like butter. All of a sudden Office files open slowly when double-clicked from their respective locations (they would normally blink up). If I open Word or Excel and then open the files from there, they open quick. Outlook on the other hand, is just slow to load up...which it wasn't before.

I did a ton of research online and couldn't get a clear fix. My thoughts are:
Anti Virus? (I'm using AVG Free)
Ad-Aware Free? (Ad-Watch live is on...however it was on before)
Windows update or office update?

But obviously I'm here to get your thoughts. It's a pain in the ass when I bought a new PC so it could perform quick, and now spreadsheets and email take 20 seconds or more to open.

Openfaced

My MS Office files have generic icons, and when I open them, Windows asks me which program to use. Office 2010 isn't even on the list. A trial version of Office 2007 came with my laptop. I downloaded the Office 2010 beta, then uninstalled 2007. Since I uninstalled the old Office, all my Office files are no longer associated with Office, and there seems to be no way to remarry them. Office 2010 (beta) doesn't appear in the default programs control panel. The only way I can open those files is to open Word/Excel/etc, and File>Open. I feel like this should be simple. Any ideas?

Hi all.
Is it possible to run MS Office 2003 and MS office 2007 on the same machine.
I teach I.T. and many of my students, as well as the school computer labs have office 2003. For this reason I need 2003 on my machine.
That said I also am seen as the computer guru by fellow collegues, so often find myself sorting out their computer problems or giving advice on how to merge tables in word or create mark shedules in excel. Many of them have 2007, which is very different. Thus running 2007 seems like a good idea.
So is it possible to have both versions running on the same machine?
At this point I am using windows XP - tablet edition.

There are two discs, one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" and the other one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 (Microsoft Office Communicator 2007".

The question is how do I make the conversion without using a free software. It is preferable to use a software that would retain the original format of the article.


Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to help me find such a software.

Hi Guys long time reader, first time poster.

This is a on and off thing, but when we open a document on a users personal drive (which nobody else has access too), it opens as read only and they cant make changes/save the file.

Selecting "notify" when the document is ready to be edited doesnt respond.
Document has no read-only attribute, nor does the folder level they have full access to it.
This particular user is connected via wireless but the issue occurs on desktops aswell.
We have tried restarting the computer and ending the process.
Also closed the document via server but she still receives read only error.

The weird thing is, if the document is closed and opened 2-3 times on the 2nd or 3rd time it will be in editing mode.

I have searched the net and can't seem to find that much any suggestions/help would be much appreciated.

I was told they don't want to have just 2010 because some of the teachers that are set in their ways won't use it. I installed 2010 on my computer and also have 2002. When I try to open an Excel spreadsheet in a shared document it always opens in 2010. I even did "open with" and pointed it back to the Office 10 folder which contains Office 2002 and found the Excel exe. but it still opened in 2010 version. Same with Word and PowerPoint.

I just purchased a Win 8 laptop (HP Pavilion Notebook PC) for $400, after returning a Surface Pro 2 (total cost $1500 +).
The Surface Pro 2 with touch screen was a nightmare to use.
The HP has a no-touch screen and I like that.

I want to keep up with the technology so that is the reason for the new HP unit.
I have Office 2003 on the XP and I am aware that it most likely will not perform on the Win 8 device.
So, do I buy Office 2010 and will it work the same way, allowing me to store all my emails on the hard drive?
Or, does the new Office 2010 or 2013 store that info on a remote server (cloud)?

Additionally, is there a way to emulate Windows Xp on the
new computer, not that itís a major requirement, just curious?

A:Solved: MS Office XP upgrade to MS Office 2003

You should be able to purchase an upgrade to Office 2003, as long as you have a qualifying program in your computer. Once you have upgraded, don't get rid of the older program! You'll never be able to do an uninstall/reinstall without the qualifying program (which I found out to my disgust and chagrin).

A:office 2003 or 2010

Either is fine, but a lot changed between 2003 and 2007 so if you're not familiar with 2010 there's a learning curve to it. I generally think that going with the more recent version is better because it keeps you up to date with the current technology. You don't use it professionally now, but someday you might, and it would be good to already know it. Just my two cents.

This is what you need, I guess.

As to our other question, uninstalling Office rarely removes the corresponding Office12 (or whatever version number) folder from ProgramFiles, so I guess that's where it's coming from.

Which version is your Office 2010? If 32 bit, then the fact that your OS is 54 bit would make no difference.

Since support is about to end for 2003 version, I think that it may be time to change. If I go to either 2007 or 2010 version, I think that I understand that "opening and reading" an "XLS" file will not be any problem since you can use the
Compatibility Pack". I am not so sure about the templates ( XLT ) files. Will I be able to continue those files, because I use them on a daily basis. Will an XLT file open and be able to be used in either 2007 or 2010 ?

A:Changing from Office 2003 to either 2007 or 2010

XLS files can still be opened. Supposedly it is possible that some things might appear a little different when opening them with newer versions, but I've never found this to be true. And while I can't tell you for sure, I'm 98% sure XLT files will open just fine too. Basically you can open old format files in newer versions of Office, but you can't open newer format files with older Office versions.

I start up Windows Updates today and it has me downloading 3 updates for Windows 2010. This computer had Office 2010 on it before it was reformatted. Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it? Does Office 2007 use updates that are also made for 2010(and are only labled 2010)? Anyone have any ideas? I don't believe it's hurting anything, but I am curious!

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

A:install excell 2003 alongside office 2010

Are you aware that Microsoft will no longer support Office 2003 after April 8, 2014. So you will lose support & updates on Excel 2003, which could make it very vulnerable to virus attacks etc..

Is the wk4 file format used in saving Lotus 123 spreadsheets?. With the above in mind is there any way, you can change over to the fully Excel system, as it would seem you are getting forced into a corner & have to eventually change over.

Whether Excel 2003 will work alongside Office 2010 is something I don't know.

(MS Office/Open Office) with this if the OO applications remain checked as the default Does the current version of OO even understand how to DEAL with the new Office I understand that OO can not read docx documents which is the default for Word although this can be easily changed back to doc I found out that Open Office scheduled for release this fall will be able to read docx documents What s so great about docx docs anyway Using my example assume this situation on a new Windows Vista machine fresh installs of each program or Office OEM factory installed What behavior would be expected here Jack nbsp

I changed hard drives and did not copy my Word macro's. I can put the old drive in as a slave. Under Windows, where are my Word 2003 macros stored? Thank you in advance for your time and help.
 

A:Solved: On my computer, under Office 2003, where are MS Word macros stored?

They could be in many different locations:

- Within the document in question, which is probably not the case since you're missing your macros.

- In your normal.dot, which is normally located in your profile directory (usually C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername) under \Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\

- In any .dot file in your Word Startup folder, which is usually in your profile directory: \Application Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP\

- In any other .dot file in any other folder, that was manually added to Word through Tools, Templates and Add-Ins. If your macros were not in any of the previously mentioned locations, search the hard drive for any .dot files and check whether your macros in there...

Running Office 2010 and when in excel the File tab at the top will not let me click on it to save the document or print. I have to type ctrl P to get to that screen. Also in Outlook I can't click on the print tab now. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks

A:Office 2010 File tab will not open

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You may have a corrupted Office installation so insert your Office DVD and choose the Repair option.

Failing that, you could run an anti-virus scan, just in case. Malwarebytes is an excellent tool for this.

Hi guys, im hoping someone can help. For some reason i cannot open Microsoft office 2010, it is genuine, i downloaded it from the microsoft website. It has been working fone since i bought it and i use it on a regular basis for work, mostly for spreadsheets. I have just been away on holiday for ten days, i went to open a spread sheet and a message came up that said " Cannot open microsoft office, go to control panel to repair then try again" So i went to control panel i found the programme and i clicked repair, after a few minutes it said the programme had been repaired successfully but when i go to open it i get the same message. Any ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks

After installing the latest Windows updates, I was unable to open any Word or Excel programs on my computer. The doc opened, but immediately an error message dialogue box came up:

Error message: Microsoft Office cannot verify the license for this product. You should repair the Office program by using Control Panel.

The only 2 options available were to click the X to close, or click OK button. Both resulted in the doc closing.

Control panel --> Office did not display an option to repair.

I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and Office 2010 Home and Student ... both legitimate store bought products with product keys.

I even tried to uninstall and re-install Office with no change in the results.

I uninstalled the Windows updates with no change, then re-installed them.

System restore did nothing to change the issue.

I would appreciate any help with this issue.

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to SevenForums.

If you right-click on one of your Word documents and choose properties, does the icon look correct in that panel? Like this:

i remember with windows xp and office you could go to a different part of the microsoft windows update website in Internet Explorer and it would prompt you with ActiveX to allow updates for Office and after you did that then when 2010 for update updates win7 not thru showing office windows office you went to the normal windows xp update site there would be a whole other section of updates for microsoft office available That was with office anyway i use a dell restore cd for windows professional on a dell pc obviously to install win from scratch I can do windows updates no problem I have microsoft office professional plus with a valid license key these are provided by my IT dept Office installs fine not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7 during the install i can go through the options and install excel powerpoint all shared tools and so on Once installed it works fine There is no service pack installed at this point From here not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7 if I go windows update I never see anything for office From within office Microsoft Word file menu help for example it shows office is activated and if i click on check for updates there it then not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7 opens an IE window which says updates can be done from start menu - programs - windows update If i do that it's a normal windows operating system update and I get nothing for office I have manually downloaded from microsoft Office SP and SP and have installed either one When i go to the help menu it then shows office SP so the service pack seems to have installed no problem But I still never see any updates for office from windows update what's the deal

A:not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:

I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.
