Can I Install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflict?

Q: Can I Install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflict?

Hi Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have recently installed Office Professional Plus 2016 (the full package, with nothing left out, as well as Outlook 2016). However, I recently discovered that Outlook 2016 doesn't support the Business Contact Manager addin.

So, can I install only Outlook 2013 (and BCM) alongside Office 2016, without removing/breaking either? Does anyone else have this setup working without issues?

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I am running on Windows XP SP2 that is regularly updated. Thank you

Try deselecting Word as your Outlook Email editor. I suspect that will be the issue, as it reconfigures Outlook 2003 each time to the changed Word version?

Hi there
Just a quicky -- apart from using say a VM for testing Office 2010 I'd like to install on an existing machine so I can compare immediately if there are any significant differences between Office 2007 and 2010 before deploying for a lot of users.

I've never tried running two versions of office on the same machine -- are there any implications such as incompatable DLL's with the same name etc.

Anybody runnung both versions (32 bit even though I'm running W7 X-64).


A:Can I keep OFFICE 2007 alongside Office 2010

I have a small problem that maybe someone can assist me with.
I recently purchased a new note book with Windows 7 and also purchased Office 2010, Home edition.
I downloaded the software and input my activation code satisfactorily and everything appeared fine, but when I reopen say, Excel or Word I get a message asking me to enter my activation code, but the heading on the message says ?Office 2007? although my software indicates ?Office 2010? at the top of the page.
Is it possible that my note book came with ?Office 2007? preloaded and doesn?t recognise the fact that ?Office 2010? is now loaded?
It also indicates that I can only open again 23 more times.
Your assistance would be appreciated.

i have installed office 2010 and in excel i need to save files in wk4 file formate .. and excel 2010 is lacking this feature. whereas excell 2003 has this feature.

can i install excell 2003 alongside office 2010 ?
i need word/outlook/access/onenote/ in 2010 format . whereas excel in 2003.

what are its implications?

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.

Can anyone tell me how to re-install Microsoft Office? I've just had to do a complete re-install of Windows XP Media Center 2005 Edition (as a parallel, repair function was not working on the original version) after a blue screen error nightmare followed by issues with the keyboard and mouse not being recognized. Those issues are now resolved and I was able to keep my data. I see everything in the system has been restored except Microsoft Office 2007. I can see the files but cannot access the actual program. My word and excel files are there but I cannot open them without the program. I do have the Application and Drivers & Utilities CD's (DELL Dimension E520). Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello everyone,
I realize the huge gap between MS Office 2016 and Sharepoint 2007 so obviously, there will be some compatibility issues. So this is more of a general question than a problem.
Does anyone know of a way that I can have MS Office 2016 work with Sharepoint 2007? I'm able to navigate through Sharepoint and everything. I'm able to open documents. However, it seems after I edit a document, I can't save it/upload it to Sharepoint, whether I have the document checked out or not.
If there really isn't a way, it's not big deal. I have a Windows 7 desktop that I currently remote into that has Office 2010 installed that works the way I need it to.

I have been running Microsoft Picture it 2001 for a long time and over the weekend installed Office 2007. I had previously been using Office 97.

When I tried to use Picture it after installing Office 2007, I got an error saying the GIF grahics filter is missing. I uninstalled and reinstalled Picture it from the disk but get the same error message.
I am guessing Office 2007 has something to do with this problem.

I have just installed office 2007 and for some reason the links to Adobe writer do not come up in any of the applications. Also when I try to create a PDF file from aword document I get a message saying PDF files missing do I want to run rn repair mode. I have done this to no avail.

Adobe can create PDF files from Notepad so I feel it hads to do with 2007 as when I was running 2003 I had no problem. I was using Adobe professional 7. As I needed to create a PDF urgently I downloaded Desk PDF a small free prograamme and it worked perfectly and installed a short cut to the programme in all the office applications.

Good day all,

Sorry if this has been asked before but after I installed Office 2016 Pro, I noticed that it immediately pooped all of the Office apps onto my PC including ones that I really don't need. There's no custom option to select the ones you want and the ones you don't (unlike Office 2013).
I read that it's apparently intended to do so and Microsoft actually has called it a technology (Click To Run Technology).

I was wondering if there's ANY way to be able to exclude apps before the install so that they won't install. Is there a file that I can edit and if so, how exactly should I edit it?

A:No Custom install for Office 2016?

Folks have complained about this same problem in the Windows 10 forums -- and the response there is that MS has removed the option to choose what components to install.

I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

I have used Open Office for years with no problems. It's easy to save as a Word document. I bought a new new computer wrote several items, saved in OO. This computer doesn't have Word installed so I installed Office Start (not knowing the difference). Now every OO document on my desktop is taken over by Word - literally with a big W. I can't open it unless I agree to a long list of rules, including personalized ads, which I don't want.

 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 there

It looks like that a Student and Teacher edition of Office 2016 will be available at around 90 GBP - 105 EUR while an Office 365 subscription will be around 60 GBP - 73 EUR for 1 year. Since the Student edition will work on 3 machines it seems to me the subscription model is bad value compared with Office 2016.

Now there might be a caveat -- not sure if OUTLOOK 2016 is included with Student and Teacher --we'll have to wait and see.

There *Might* also be an Upgrade price from Office 2010 / 2013 too.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Microsoft doesn't certify Office 97 to work with Vista: being said, lot's of people on the web have gotten it to work with varying degrees of success.Ensure that you install the application in compatibility mode - both as "Run as Windows 98" and "Run as Administrator"Don't install Service Pack 2 - it has problems. But, from what I've read, it'll let you gracefully exit the SP2 setup if you started it.

Hello - I own multi-user version of Microsoft Office 2007 Pro and in May 2012 purchased a new ASUS A54C-TS91 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and Office 2010 Starter Edition. I need Powerpoint and Outlook in addition to Excel and WORD. I tried to install the entire app. assuming certain "limited" components of 2010 would be overwritten with the "better"/more robust 2007 - however, while it appears Office 2007 Pro loaded properly and is shown in Control Panel with proper date as installed, there is no file size listed...... I have read several similar posts but wanted to provide specific details for my situation. Anyone have a similar issue - what is best solution? (i am a newbie to the group, so hope I didn't make a faux pas in relating my story). Any guidance is welcomed and appreciated. Minky

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.

Hi everyone,

When I first got my computer (Windows 7 Home Premium SP1), it had a preinstalled trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. I removed it via the control panel (Programs and Features) and installed Office 2010. However, I still get Office 2007 updates via Windows Update. They even installed successfully.
There are no Office 2007 components listed under Programs and Features.

I do not have Office 2010 installed. Office 2007 is installed.

My security software keeps telling me I am at risk because my operating system is not up to date.

Any thoughts on what I should do?

A:Receiving updates for Office 2010 but Office 2007 is installed.

If your computer is relatively new, it may have come with a trial install of Office 2010 - check the Start menu, and the Programs & Features listing.
You may also have installed Viewers for things like PowerPoint 2010, which still require updates.

I looked this up online and it said that this was caused by installing as a user, not an administrator. So I uninstalled office entirely, booted, and reinstalled as administrator.

Still doing the same thing. Anyone have any ideas?

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?

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?

Ok, well up until yesterday my father was using Office 2000 with Microsoft binder for work. He just got a new laptop for work and he's got Office 2007 installed. From the looks of Microsoft's site it states that 'Microsoft Unbind is not included with Office 2007.' Looks like what I really need is Microsoft Binder from Office 2000. Is there a place I can download it (legally) or purchase it? He literally has thousands of binder files (*.obd) that he needs to be able to access. I've tried searching with nothing turning up.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

A:Microsoft Office Binder (*.obd files) with Office 2007?

So further searching turned up that Unbind for Office XP/2003 is just a waste of time for Office 2007 and no point in looking further into that.

So then I found this:

Which seems to me if I can track down a Office 2000 disc I should be able to install JUST Binder 2000. Results show that it works along side Office XP/2003 so I don't see why it wouldn't with Office 2007. It would only be used to unbind old files, not create new ones.

If anyone has any other thoughts that would be great.
I'll look into what I wrote above tomorrow and post back with the results if need be.

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

A:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

Several posts indicated that I should uninstall the 2007 version, then install the 2010 version. If I do that, I won't have access to the e-mail for the download.

Should i just install 2010 over 2007, or wait for the CD's?

Wait for the DVD, or download the ISO then write it to DVD for installation. After installation, activate it with the licence key you purchased.

Recently installed Office 2010 (32 bit becuz it was recommended to do so my MS) and now when I send an Office 2007 file to that PC (both PCs are Win 7 64 it) it tries to open the file in Windows Media!!

What the heck am I doing wrong? I'm beginning to think I should not have purchased Office 2010 Pro and stayed with the Office 2007 on all my machines.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Office 2007 files will not open in Office 2010

That is weird.
Could you please describe step by step how you are sending the file to another PC.
Also, please provide more details on what type of the file that is. And if you create a similar file on recipient PC, will it be opened in Windows Media as well?

On my laptop I was running MS Office 2003 Professional. I decided to upgrade to MS Office 2007 Professional. I thought my CD and key were legitimate. After installing, I found I couldn't activate the software. The new installation apparently wiped out the MS Office 2003.

Is there anyway for me to return to my MS Office 2003? I'm using a Dell and tried to return to a previous setpoint, but that didn't work, something about a patch missing.

Any ideas?

Where did you get the 2007 Office from?

Do you not have the 2003 Office CD to reinstall it?

Is anyone familiar with customize installation of microsoft office 2007? If so, can you please help with installing certain parts to it. For instance, I don't want to install micosoft visio viewer, MS published but I am not sure how to take them out of the install. I would appreciate any help I can get with this.

A:Ms Office 2007 Install Help

It's been a while. If I remember correctly, you start the install with the Office disk and a window will pop up in the process asking if you want the express or custom install

My Desktop recently crashed motherboard and power supply.

I purchased a Gateway for basically the cost of the above mentioned.

I have personal data saved, my question is "How do I re install Office Pro 2007 on my new machine.

I have the disk and the key but I'm assuming Microsoft will say this key is being used on another computer.

Is this correct?? If so what do I do.

I am a 61 year old rookie, but I'm trying to learn.

I thank you all for all you do.


A:Re Install Office Pro 2007

You should not have any problems. If you do, a simple call to M$ should straighten things out. There is also an open source alternative to M$ Office

I have a HP Compaq CQ5210F, win 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit OS.I had accidently deleted a user account (thats another problem for later) I need to know how to get the 25 digit Key code, so i can re-registar it & be able to use it. I drespreatly needs this for my work & cannot afford to go out a buy a new office. I tried calling MS Support & they tried to help, with no luck. They said it's because the MS Office 2007 came pre-installed on it from HP. PLEASE HELP ME ASAPAnd thanks in advance.    

A:Had To Re-install MS Office 2007

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome! I am afraid there is no official way to get the 25 digit code (licence code) for Microsoft Office. This is a licence code that the user/owner needs to keep. I am not familiar with a procedure that vendor like HP to install full edition of Microsoft office on computers that came preinstalled with Office. What you probably used to have was Microsoft Office trial edition or some demo edition with limited functionality.  Could you elaborated on few things: - what it was before - where you got this Office from and how it worked before? - you write "Had To Re-install MS Office 2007" - where you got the installation ISO/media from ? - please elaborate on that "later thing" about deleting user account - what exactly you did and what caused Office to stop working that now requires licence key - it may be connected to this issue. Looking forward to hearing from you.

This is my first time installing anything Office 2007, which I got the iso
from MSDN. Upon loading the cd, it tells me it fails to upgrade from
pre-release. Odd, I never installed anything but Office 2003, which I even
uninstalled prior to trying yet again, same error shows the error in full

I have XP Media Center 2005 on Sony Vaio Core 2 Duo system.

I uninstalled Office 2003, never installed Office 2007 versions of any kind

What to do?

I have an office professional 2007 trial which I can not uninstall. I have tried restore points also. It will not uninstall and will not open my 2003 docs or excel

I tried to download a new Trial over it and got message "controller could not install, check log records"

I see on line in chat rooms that this has happened often, but no help from Microsoft on what to do.

Any thoughts out there? thanks.

When I put the Office 2007 disk in the drive it says there is an infected Trojan file on the disk: Artemis!7F340D18399B.  It installs fine on my other computer with Windows XP.  Is there a way to remove that bad file? Or a way to get around it?Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Trying to install Office 2007

Is that an original installation DVD or a copy? If it's a copy, don't use that disk -- find another one that doesn't have malware on it. You may also want to run a virus scan on the XP machine, just to be safe.

NO JOY !!!

A:cannot re-install office pro plus 2007 ?

Judging by the inability of anyone to supply you with a successful fix on other forums you've posted on, and the length of time you've been fighting this problem, I suggest you bite the bullet and do a complete Windows re-install after backing up your data.

Program files or Program files (86) ?

I have had this rig going since about July first, but using mostly XP 32 because of virus concerns, and it took me this long to get my Linksys wireless card to work on Vista x64.

So i have only used Vista x64 occassionally, i like the increase in speed, and not sure about Office 2007 (i assemble lots of large databases in the Access world) install. . . anyone with any experience?

also, not sure about the virus / malware threats to V x64. . . any comments?



A:Where does Office 2007 install?

Yep it installs in "Program files(x86)"
Virus/Malware threats to Vista X64 ? they r pretty much the same as with previous versions.
Get a good AV scanner (Kaspersky,NOD32) and you are good to go.

A:MS Office 2007 won't install!

Have you tried to clean off the disk? Or your cd drive could be dirty and not recognize the disk.

Can we assume that other cd's read properly.
