Office 2007 - Making It Work Like Office 2003

Q: Office 2007 - Making It Work Like Office 2003

I have Office 2007 and it seems to me that most tasks require an extra click. Let me explain. In Office 2007 if I want to print I have to click on the office button on the top left and then click print. In Office 2003 there was a print icon on the taskbar that required one click. Is there anyway to setup Office 2007 so that some basic functions (print, save, open, etc.) can be accomplished with one click?

Hi Hal06.That is the single biggest beef I've heard with 07. I'm still using 03 with the 07 conversion pack, but I think you can add commands to the quick access toolbar manualy.See if this page may be what you're looking for.

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.

The second screen had this:
Installation Error: File not Found

A required installation file SKU1E3.CAB could not be found.

Before, I'd hit cancel and MS Word '03 would get to working anyway. Then I'd close it and go into Word 07. I think there was some error message, but I don't remember it. Now, I just uninstalled an Office '07 trial. The same thing is happening again, but now when I hit cancel, it says "fatal error during installation." It's a different error message from the one I got last time.

I really need help here. I've got homework due tomorrow for some online classes, and need Word to do it.

I tried going into control panel > Add/Remove Programs > Office '03 and clicking change to do the repair thing, but it led to the same problem.

Good Day,

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.

Regards,
Jeff

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

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

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.

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?

Even my 2003 and 2007 gave me issues after some time.

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.

Hello
I currently have Office 2003 Student full version installed on my computer. I have received Office Professional Plus 2007 Student media version. Do I need to uninstall Version 2003 prior to installing 2007 or will installation of version 2007 automatically uninstall version 2003. Does all the information in my .pst file convert as necessary for use in Outlook 2007. 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". I'm guessing that the disk with the shorter title "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" would be the correct one to install. What is the second disk with Communicator? My system is Windows XP SP2, AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core Processor, 3800+ 1.99 Ghz 2GB Ram.

I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!
I think Microsoft will be losing many many customers with this one.

Is anyone aware of any guides, books, online documentation, etc which can help users to migrate?? If not, I'm going to be sending off these cds to the Salvation Army.

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?

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

I have both Office 2003 and Office 2007 installed. I can use either or with no problems. But if I click on a file it will always open it with Office 2003. I have Office 2007 setup to run in Compatability Mode and always save the files in the .xls format. The only way I can open a file in Office 2007 is to go through the program and not just by double clicking the file. I have tried to change the Open With in the properties of the files but it changes back to Office 2003 after I set it to Office 2007. Any Ideas on how to make it always use Office 2007 as my default.

Right click on the .xls file you want, and choose Open With.

Check that box, and it should always open w/Excel 2007.

I have a new thinkpad laptop that came installed with Office Professional 2007 trial. I have an existing license for Office 2003 Small Business which I was running on my prior laptop.

While I like the enhancements made to 2007 (vs 2003), I definitely don't need all the modules that come with Professional (publisher, business contact manager). From what I've read, if I don't convert the trial to the same version, I will have to uninstall and re-install the version that I choose.

So, it seems that I have the following options:

1) Upgrade my existing 2003 license to 2007 Small Business (I'm not sure whether or not I will need to install 2003 before I install 2007 for the "upgrade" licensing to work)

2) Install 2003 Small Business and wait until Office 2010 comes out and upgrade at that point.

3) Buy Office Home and Student 2007 and Outlook 2007 as separate modules and install (from what I can tell this is is about $60 less than the Small Business upgrade and has the modules that I use regularly).

I would love to hear input/comments/suggestions on what my best course of action is. I don't want to be penny-wise and pound foolish and I want to keep my new laptop efficient and running smoothly.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I would wait until Office 2010 comes out because it will have added features and most likely will work better than 2007. You don't want to buy 2007 now and then want to buy 2010 later.

A:Office 2007 Vs Office 2003

In MS Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the new Ribbon system which can get confusing, but is a real help at times. There are many cool features on Office 2007 that are nice, but not necessarily needed. Office 2007 saves its files in a different format (.docx), but still supports the standard .doc format. All in all I find MS Office 2007 very useful and more powerful than Office 2003, but 2003 is excellent, and gets the job done nicely. Most changes are GUI based in Office 2007.

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.

Hello,

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. 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.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated
Office 2003 SP 3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any hel on this issue.

2. If she saves something from Office 2007 (word, excel, or any program) on a jump drive, and tries to open it with the Office 2003 on the college computers, will it work?

Hi,
I have Office 2007 installed on Win7, but I need to use and do an online course for 2003 Exel.
Is it possible to just install the 2003 Exel and leave 2007? Any conflicts if I do this?
OR
Do I have to uninstall Office 2007 and reinstall the complete Office 2003?

Thanks in advance.

A:Office 2007, but need 2003 Exel?

ugh, never easy or fun...

So let me start by saying it's much easier to start from scratch (nothing installed).

You'll need to enter the advanced installation options for both 2003 and 2007 office installers.

So if you start with 2007, you'll click advanced setup and uncheck excel from that selection...

Then when you pop in your 2003 disk/iso/exe... You'll enter advanced setup and uncheck EVERYTHING but excel.

Good luck, this is usually a huge pain -- don't forget to update both suites once installed

SO heres what happened. I had office 2007 installed but i needed to uninstall it and install office 2003 because I am going to school from home and have to have 2003.

I uninstalled 2007 then installed 2003 and nothing would work right, all of the files that should have been word documents would not work with 2003 and anytime I tried to just open word by itself (without opening from a file) it would say it was installing the program (this happened every time i tried to open it)

I uninstalled 2003 and reinstalled 2007 hoping it would be ok because there was a file i really needed well now 2007 is doing the same thing even though the files I made were with 2007 and it is also doing the thing where every time I opened word it would try to install/configure itself.

How can i completely uninstall 2007 and any legftover traces. I'm hoping that once I do that and reinstall that all will be fixed.
 

A:Problems with office 2003 and 2007

Not sure why you are having problems re-installing Office 2007.

As for why you couldn't open Office 2007 documents with Office 2003 applications, Microsoft changed the file formats for 2007. In 2007, you should have the option to "Save as" using an older file format or you can get a Compatibility Pack for Office 2003 that will let you open Office 2007 files. More information at ...

My laptop (which runs Vista and Office 2007) requires major service and I will not have access to it for a few weeks. Therefore I need to work on my desktop, which runs XP and Office 2003. I would prefer to keep working in Office 2007, since my documents are in docx and I am now more comfortable in 2007. I do not really want to use the filters for 2003.

Since I uninstalled 2007 from my laptop, can I safely install it on my desktop without removing Office 2003? My wife wants to keep working in 2003. I kinow there are a few issues (such as this site

My company (day job) runs a series of Sharepoint 2007 sites, but everyone's computer still runs Office 2003. I've been getting a lot of complaints recently (since the upgrade to Sharepoint 2007) that users can't "save" documents that they have downloaded from the Sharepoint server back to the server.

I have determined that this is because they are not "Checking Out" the file before editing it.

I am running a copy of Office 2007, and I can just click on the file name, and I am prompted to "edit" or "read" the file. With Office 2003, users are not prompted for this.

Is there a way to force Office 2003 to prompt a user to choose between editing a file or just reading it when they click on the file?

I know the users can click the arrow next to the file name to check it out, and then click the file name, but with a complete roll-out of Office 2007 still at least a year away, users aren't going to want to do this.

I have a user that is running office 2003. He had the need to use access 2007. So I removed access 2003 and installed access 2007. Ever since then he gets a windows installer, installing office professional plus 2007. So I did some reading, microsoft suggested to uninstall all office applications. So I installed office 2003 minus access. I then installed office 2007 only access. Since this time the user states that the above mentioned installer justs randomly pops up (about 2 times a day), when the installer finishes it requires the machine to reboot. Any ideas what could be causing this........

The installer window does not specify what its trying to install. It just says "office professional plus 2007"............
 

A:Office 2003 and Access 2007

There is a direct conflict between Access 2007 (or other Office 2007) programs and Office 2003 programs.
The problem appears to be in the Registry and involves the .dll files that are common to both suites of Programs. As they are not compatible each time you use a program that conflicts with the .dll file it asks you to re-install to get it's own one. So the reason that you get less since uninstalling Access 2003 is there are less conflicting .dll files involved.
This is quite well documented on other forums.

We have different versions of MS-Office 2003 installed on our computers at home. Our daughter needs to have Office 2007 on her laptop, running XP Home, for a college computer course starting next week. The instructor suggested that the 60 day free trial would be long enough to complete the course work. We are considering purchasing the Home and Student version in case she needs it for future class work and updating all of the computers.

Will we still be able to use the Office 2003 programs like Publisher, Outlook and FrontPage if they are not part of the 2007 version?

I remember going from Office 2000 to 2003 at work a number of years ago. The installer warned that no Office 2000 apps were compatible with Office 2003 and would be uninstalled prior to installing any Office 2003 apps. Is this the case for Office 2007 as well?
 

A:Can MS-Office 2003 and 2007 Coexisting on one PC?

A number of people here have said they run both on the same PC with no major problems with one exception - you can only have 1 version of Outlook installed, so either save your old version or uninstall it and install the 2007 version.
However, it seems that Outlook is the least changed of all the programs in 2007, so you may not notice much difference.

Did you purchase the student version of Office 2007 yet? Because, you can buy the full ultimo-mega-all-in version of Office for like $60 here (in the States. A little more if you're in Canada) and this comes with all the bells and whistles... All you need is a student email address. I purchased this last year (before the 2010 version came free) and it's great. I only use the main 3 (Excell, Word, Powerpoint) but it was still cheaper than any student version I was able to get.

I understand that the Access 2007 Runtime is free but if I setup this on a machine with Office 2003 will there be any problems.

Hi,
I've just bought a Toshiba A135-S4527 with Vista installed. Originally I took off the Office 2007 trial(beta)ware. Installed my Office 2003 and every time I opened (or launched an app) I got a "windows is installing config..." You know the story. I found no fix so I figured I could use that copy (2003) on an XP machine for my son. Got a brand new copy of Office Pro 2007, etc, installed it AND I have same d-mn problem to a T.

Additionally when opening Excel I get an alert box with "stdole32.tlb" and thats all it says. This alert only occurs with Excel. When I dismiss the box (alert window) then it starts running a "Process Configuring..." event, as does Winword, Powerpoint, Publisher, etc. I have checked the register IAW MS KB and the factor is in the registry with a valid path.

Outlook is not an issue as I prefer not to use it.

Anyone know how to fix this, I would be VERY grateful. I might even donate my first born son or something.

Hi everybody,
I have this problem driving me nuts, and I just registered here in the hopes of finding some help. I have been reading pages upon pages of possible solutions on different forums, but non have worked for me so far.

Basically, my Office 2003 apps suddenly started crashing on startup. Whether I open the apps directly or try to open a .doc or .xls document, I will see the Word or Excel logo appear, then nothing.
The only way I can run them is in safe mode.

So far, here's what I've tried :
-Using the "Detect & Repair" option in Word
-Deleting all the templates (Normal.dot)
-Repairing from the installation cd
-Uninstalling and re-installing
-Clean uninstalling, including manually deleting installation folders, templates, etc. and all the registry keys that I could find that contained mentions of Office or Word
-Using a registry cleaner/fixer between uninstalling and re-installing

I also borrowed a copy of Office 2007 which I installed. -Crashes exactly the same way...

Now, I'm going crazy. Especially since I'm not at all fond of OpenOffice and hate having always to convert from their format to Office's, as I often have to work on different pcs.

What is there left to try ? A complete reformat just for that bug ?!!

I'd really appreciate some input.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance!

A:Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 on the same computer

It should be okay, but you'll have to be very careful how you do the installation:
 
1.  Watch every step, do NOT accept the defaults all the time. 
 
2.  Install 2003 first, if you've not done it already. 
 
3. The first thing you're asked, is WHERE to install.  Create a new folder name, instead.  So at the end of the path it gives you, instead of accepting 'Microsoft Office', instead type something like 'MSO2003' or whatever you'll easily remember.  MS always installs multiple nested directories with the same names, so if you're gonna use two versions, you want to change the ending folder name of at least, one of them.  (I have, for example, MS Office 2002 and 2003 on the same machine, so I renamed one of the directories MSO02, for that reason.)
 
4.  After installation, shut down, go walk for a few minutes and then turn the machine on again (soft reboot doesn't work well with Office).
 
5.  Do something else on your machine for awhile, don't just do the next thing as the 2007 installation.  Give Windows time to 'populate' all its references with recognition of the new installation.
 
6.  So maybe after an hour or so, you can now install 2007.  It will notice that you have 2003 installed, and offer to replace it.  Say no to that.
 
7.  It too will present you with a default directory which is the same as the default you saw in #3, and again you want to specify a uni... Read more

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 developed an Excel addin in Win7 using Office 2007. The user wants to run it under Win7 but using Office 2003. It's getting compile errors "Can't find project or libraries." I'm familiar with the issue because it came up a couple years ago when the same user was using the code with Office 2003 on an XP machine. I was able to solve the problem because I happened to have XP and Office 2003 on another machine. It was a matter of getting the Office 2007 (Office 12) object files into the right places. However, to solve the current problem experimentally would mean installing Office 2003 on my Win7 machine which is not attractive to me.

So, the question is this: What object libraries do I have to put onto his machine, and where. The attachment shows a screenshot he's getting now. My guess is I have to make it use Office 12 stuff instead of Office 11 since that's what works on my Win7, albeit with Office 2007.

A:VBA object libraries Office 2003 vs 2007

I assume you are talking about VBA

I have written a lot of Excel addins for Excel 2003 over the years
I recently purchased Office 2010 because after Excel 2010 I believe the code language is not VBA although older VBA code will run.If 2010 last me another 5 to 8 years it will get me past my use-by date.
I have to rewrite some of my 80 addins to be compatible with Excel 2003 and Excel 2010 for some of my clients.You are possibly up against several problems 2007 References not available in 2003, ie, some 2007 objects/methods/functions are simply not available in 2003 and visa versa.
References can be enabled/disabled with VBA
in 2003 Excel, some early bound classes might Err in a 2007 environment, depending on References.
Late bound Classes can be very helpful where the addin is to be used by different versions of Excel
Or simply disable Excel v12 Reference , and write your addin from that point.
Are you using forms?
You might have to use late-bound classes to work around MS changes to methods/functions.
2003 numeric data-types are maxed at Long Integer for 65,xxx rows where as I think Excel-2007 has 1million rows, and there is a new numeric Extra Long integer data-type for Excel 2007.

Not being familiar with 2007, I am not absolutely clear on differences between 2003 and 2007 VBA
But I am willing to help you as much as I can.

Hope this is clear enough, way past my bed time.

Hello,

I would like to know what are some potential compatibility problems between MS Project 2003 and MS Office 2007? Will I run into any known problems after installing them on the same machine? I appreciate your help!

I know there are "minimum requirements" from Microsoft, but I want some input on "practical" advice on which to put on an old computer. Hope someone can give some input.

The computer is a P4 2.8GHz Hyper-Threading, 1 GB RAM, and 256MB Video card.

Thanks for any input.

There seems to be a conflict between Office 2007 and Outlook 2003

Using Excel 2007 and Office 2003 seems to trigger a scroll down with no stop, in all Office modules + a loss of Junck mail Filter in Outlook 2003.

With Microsoft periodic new updates, all operations resume to normal, but after later uses, the scroll dpwn + Filter loss comes back again.

I am thinking of de-installing Office 2007 or 2003, but need to keep Outlook 2003.
Is there a way to make sure that Oulook 2003 would not interfere with Office 2007 if I remove all of Office 2003 modules but not Outlook 2003 ?

Please advise,
Richard

Hi all,
I'm experimenting on how to get Office 2003 and Office 2007 to co-exist on the same computer.
Setup: Vista Biz 32bit. Office 2003 (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, Outlook). Office 2007(Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, NO OUTLOOK)

Each component in the suite run ok.
I have added the registry entries for Word2K3 and Word2K7 so they don't auto-register every time you launch.
(reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t
REG_DWORD /d 1
eg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t
REG_DWORD /d 1)

My problem is when I try composing a test message in outlook 2003, it thinks word 2003 is not installed.
We're using an open source Exchange server (Scalix) whose version (11.0)does not support Outlook 2007.

Any insights?
Thanks

A:Install office 2003 & 2007 on the same machine

There are ways but it will be very very difficult since Office will write over the old version.

The easiest way to do it is use Windows XP mode or a Virtual Window and install it there. You have to keep the installations separate from one another.

Are you just trying to keep 2003 and learn 2007?

For earlier versions of Office products, MSFT published a number of KB articles that describe the issue of having more than 1 version of Office in OS, andthey did list some significant potential problems.

Some of the articles were KB 292491, 218081, 828956 and 290576.

In any case, you would really have to uninstall 2007 before installing 2003.

I posted a message yesterday and that issue was more or less solved, but today I've discovered a new issue. I had office 2007 and while I liked some of the new features, I found it in general to be way to slow, so I downgraded to 2003. I've had a number of issues (I think many of which had to do with dll file versions. I've worked through most of the issues and nearly everything seems to be functioning as it should... EXCEPT.... When I try to hit "reply to all" in Outlook, I get the following error:

The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart outlook.

Needless to say, restarting outlook does not help. It was suggested that I type Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll
in the command line. That didn't help either.

Any thoughts anyone has would be greatly appreciated!

Another user on another forum had the same exact problem and managed to solve it like this (Other users tried this method and it worked for them too):

07.03.2008 at 07:31AM PDT, ID: 21925812
This is not the only solution to this issue. I had the same exact issue. I was using office 2007 and downgraded to 2003 and my reply to all button was not working at all. With some trial and error and some searching on the internet I found this solution and it worked very well without having to completely rebuild and reimage the computer, which was not an acceptable solution for the time that it would have taken to do that.

The solution that worked for me was this:

First make sure outlook is closed. Because you are using an exchange server it should be no problem to delete your .ost file. Go ahead and delete that as well. Then go into your control panel and click on the Mail icon. When the profile box comes up go ahead and remove your email profile. I didn't have to reboot but you may want to go ahead and do that. When the computer gets back into windows then reopen outlook and it will ask you to rebuild your profile. Go through the profile rebuild and select the cached mode in your outlook to rebuild your .ost.

That fixed the issue for me and now my outlook is working as it should. I would say try this before reimaging your entire machine, but definitely try this first.

I had installed Office 2007 at work and found everything to be far to slow to make any of the new bells and whistles worth-while.

So I uninstalled 2007 and installed 2003 today and I've had a number of problems most of which were solved by just going to the microsoft update site and installing 2003 service packs.

My (hopefully) last issue is with email. Outlook is working fine, but if I like on a "mailto:" link either on the web or in an email, I get the following error:

Windows Internet Explorer could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not proberly installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could somebody help me out with this. I have a few powerpoint (ppt) that won't open for my copy of powerpooint (I have MS Office 2003) I have tried downloading and installing Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack and it did not help with this. What are my options to ether get 2003 to read it or convert it so it can?

A:Help opening/converting powerpoint 2007 for office 2003

Hi there
2 options

(I assume the document is an office 2007 document -- if it's earlier than 2003 then your copy of office will read it OK).

1) Get Powerpoint / Excel / Word 2007 Viewer from MS download

For example Powerpoint

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

This will at least allow Read access into the document


2) With a bit of cutting and pasting open a blank 2003 document and paste into your open 2003 document data from the other window where you've opened the powerpoint document with the viewer.

An easier solution is to find a machine with Office 2007 installed - open the document and save as a 2003 type document -- for example if you have office 2007 installed at work.


Cheers
jimbo

Just replaced older pc with new HP - Vista OS. I want to transfer files that are in Office 2000 Pro to this machine, however, read about some quirks. Am I better off loading Office 2003 or 2007 on here to assure an easy transfer of the 2000 Pro files? Also, can I use the transfer cable to do so or should I use a jump drive? Thanks very much!

A:Office 2003 or 2007 to replace 2000 Pro on Vista?

Normally 2003 or 2007 will have no problems using 2000 file types. There can sometimes be an occasional problem with one or two documents that can easily be recovered using a free online app some of which are located

In terms of transferring files I would use a Jump Drive - I find less errors and less chance of losing anything.

Hi,

I've got a new Windows Vista that I bought, and it seems I have both Microsoft Office Powerpoint Viewer 2003 and 2007. I don't know where they came from, but one was probably installed via "Microsoft Works" by my family, and the other one (this is just a guess) from microsoft update maybe? The thing is, in Start - Programs I have both. Is there any way to get rid of 2003? Add/Remove programs shows just 2007, and one seems to be in C:/ProgramData and the other in C:/Program Files. Any help?

Thanks in advance =P

A:Solved: uninstalled office 2007 trial and now have 2003 issues

While I cannot guarantee that there isn't malware listed above, the problem of Office installation requests is due to the uninstall process for Office 2007. From personal experience I can tell you that the uninstallation of programs (quite frequently when manufactured by MS) causes a number of problems for prior versions. For me, the resolution was to uninstall all Office products and reinstall Office 2003.

The annoying install requests can be cancelled and the application of choice will continue opening until you uninstall and reinstall. You shouldnt lose anything since the office installations don't really affect "My Documents" or other data folders.

You can however use the 2007 feature to "save as" a 2000, or a 2002/2003 compatable file at the school end, if that is possible..

Otherwise you mayu need to upgrade to 2007 at home.

Good Day,

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.

Jeff
