There must be some rumor about that 7 and forcing us to 2010 Office but it's untrue. What is true is that Office 2003 does run but you must install an update to steer clear of some issues. I noted it in the Cnet Office forum at this link -> http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6129_102-380443.html?tag=contentBody;threadListing
Another tip is to uninstall the Office 2010 trial version before installing your Office 2003.
Just got a new computer and need to know what I need to take off the old one. I have a 160 GB hard disk. Need to know what to be careful of, etc. Also got Office 2010 and don't know if my Word 2003 documents will work with 2010. I was running XP on old, will be running Windows 7 on new. I had previously thought I'd stick with XP since I never had any trouble with it and just get Office 2010 but heard that Windows 7 makes you upgrade to 2010. So I want to be aware of any difficulty I might run into. Don't want to transfer anything I don't need to. I also was told that some of my programs might not work with Windows 7. How can I determine what programs will work and what won't? Do I need to wipe old computer and how? Probably a lot of other ? need to ask. I'd appreciate any and all help. Are any of the other forums appropriate for this type of post?
