I would look for a hint in windows registry, like HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Office. Remember, first
you can have more than one version installed, and second with some other products it installs pieces
of different versions of Office. Like if i look in registry in the mentioned branch, i see Office
8.0, 9.0, 10.0 and 11.0 although i know for sure that i've only installed Office 11.0 on my machine
- the rest i guess came with some other Microsoft programms.
I would do a search in registry for office entries - ther should be default version somewhere
