Office 2000 to Office 2003

P: n/a
General question - I'm installing Office 2003 on a machine that has
Office 2000 installed. Are there any gothcas I need to worry about? I
plan to uninstall the 2000 stuff if I can (they don't have a cd, the
machine was set up by the dealer). For dual installations of office
products, I know I must be careful about spefifying seprate directories.

Thanks

Uninstall may not be necessary. The setup program will offer to remove
the previous installation.

I'd strongly suggest to remove the previous installation of Office
2000.

You don't need Office 2000 installation discs to remove it; you can do
this via 'Add or Remove Programs' in the Control Panel.

Hi Tim,

One other remark though...
If you think you still need to create A2k mde's (e.g. for other clients that do not have A2003) then you need A2k for that.
In that case do not remove Access2000.
I have Access 2.0, Office Pro '97, Office Pro 2000 and Office Pro 2003 'happily' together on my PC.
Not a big problem as long as you use seperate install-dirs.
(I know a lot of us here have more Office versions installed)

Not a worry here, Arno, it was for a computer illiterate non-developer.
