Office 2003 won't work after Office 2007 trial.

Question: Office 2003 won't work after Office 2007 trial.

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.

Thanks in advance. If you need any more information to help, please let me know. I can't open any Office items. This Windows Installer problem even happens when I try to use the Windows Search. At least the Windows search still works (or tries to) though.

Okay, Microsoft's site says Office Professional 2003 w/ InfoPath relates to SKU1E3.CAB. I'm still confused.

Tiny Update: I went straight into the Microsoft Office folder in program files and hit the WINWORD.EXE from there. Word '03 went through the same drama of starting up as it did when '07 was around, but it started. That Windows installer" thing popped up like seven times though after the fact (it pops up, I hit cancel, it pops up...). So, what we have is the fact that raw EXEs work with a little prodding and the start menu shortcuts don't. Could this be a job for the installer cleanup utility?

Preferred Solution: Office 2003 won't work after Office 2007 trial.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can I run the trial for office 2007 and keep my 2003 stuff loaded and running? My life's in OneNote 2003, which I have the full version of(2 copies, actually), but my trial for all the other office things *just* expired, and I've got a giant paper due in 2 weeks. Which is now read-only. I can't figure out what I need to do in Oo.o in regards to headers and formatting. Which is the main reason I'm currently in a state of panic!

Do you have to get rid of 2003 to use 2007?

Edit: I'd like to hold off on buying 2007 until after the end of the semester, because I need to turn my tablet in for some pretty crazy repairs. And I'm debating the merits of switching to vista while all that's being changed around in the meantime. So I'd like to wait on buying until after I decide if Vista's gonna work for me.
 

Answer:Office 2007 trial question (My 2003 trial just expired!)

Hi there,

I'm not sure about the trial version, but with the whole version (which I understand the trial version to be, only with a countdown limit on it) you can install over 2003 and keep both versions. The only thing you cannot do this with is Outlook (you are only allowed one of those programs/versions at a time). There are some other minor issues, but for the most part, all can run together fairly well. I have 2003 and 2007 installed on my main hdd partition.

So when your 2007 trial is up, you can uninstall it, but will need to reinstall Outlook. It would probably be better to reinstall everything anyways. You may have issues with normal.dotx or personal.xlsb, etc.

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?

Answer: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.

I recently purchased a HP 530 laptop for our soccer club that came pre installed with Vista. During use of outlook, Excel etc it came up with a message asking for activation key & that we had 20 uses left to enter it (I presumed this was a trial version & activation code to be purchased). After 5-10 uses I decided to install Office 97 which I still had lying around from an old PC. This installed OK but the message was still appearing.

I then uninstalled Office 97 via add/remove programs & then did likewise for anything that mentioned office 2007 (I didn't do the actual uninstalling but am advised there were 4-6 office 2007 variants uninstalled). I then went to load office 97 back in but no go. It goes through the usual install process, enter key, select location to load (prog files/microsoft office) & then select type of install required (typical) & then the features (have selected all & just the basic office install).

Then it goes to the actual install process but just sits there with the bluey/green coloured screen with Microsoft Office 97 written at the top but goes no further.

I have checked add remove programs again & no mentions of office are listed.

Microsoft doesn't certify Office 97 to work with Vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933305That 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.

Like many licensed Microsoft products, Office 2010 has a rearm function built-in to extend your trial period an extra 30 days. You can do it in Windows 7 and also in Office 2010 using Office 2010 Trial Extender easily.
The process can be repeated 5 times, giving you a trial length of up to 180 days. But be careful. Click the button once, and the trial length will become 30 days.
Is this legal? Yes. Office 2010 Trial Extender isn't "hacking" Office, it's actually using a standard feature that Microsoft have built into the product. Download Office 2010 Trial Extender. UPDATE: Now supports Office 2013 too.

FIRST USE YOUR INITIAL 60 DAYS OF THE TRIAL.
DO NOT RUN THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE FINISHED THOSE 60 DAYS.

Does Office 2003 work on Vista or do they make you buy 2007?

Considering getting the Toshiba Laptop for 550 with possible rebate from circuit city and it seems like there aren't xp drivers for the mb/power control/function keys so considering just getting it and getting an extra gig of ram.

Does Office 2003 work on Vista or did MS do something sneaky like say you need to buy 2007 that would suck.

Might just get a used xp laptop instead less hassle.

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.

Hi,
Outlook Express is not available in Windows 7. Try and use Windows Live Mail instead. It works with most e‑mail accounts, and you can import your e‑mail, contacts, and calendar from Outlook Express into Windows Live Mail. Windows Live Mail puts all of your e‑mail in one place.

Does anyone know if I can easily upgrade my Office 2003 Student version to Office Basic or Standard upgrade versions2007?

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 Student to Office Basic 2007

Yes, the 2007 Home and Student version of Office 2007 will do it. There's no upgrade for it, just the CD with Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note, stick it in and follow the install instructions. However, if you're going to be using Office 2007 and transferring files between versions i.e. Office 2007 at home and Office 2003 somewhere else, it's worth knowing that Office 2007 uses a new file format that isn't recognised by earlier versions of Office. For Word its .docx, for Excel its .xlsx, and Powerpoint .pptx.You can download software for earlier versions to read the new format, or alternatively, anything you may transfer can be saved in the old format. Thought I'd point it out as you mention a student version of Office 2003, and not all institutions will be using Office 2007 yet.

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.

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.

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 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.

I have 2 different Windows 7 systems that have this problem. When I install Office 2007 using the "Upgrade" option it does not remove Office 2003 and leaves the system in a confused state, especially in regards to Outlook. When I initially start Outlook it will say it is configuring Outlook 2007, but subsequent screens indicate an Outlook 2003 utility is being used.

With great pain I can manually set the default email client and do other pieces of the configuration and get Outlook 2007 running, but as soon as I reboot the system, it reverts to a confused state. I have tried all four methods Microsoft prescribes in KB2639197 to remove Office 2003. I have also used 3rd party uninstallers?specifically Revo and CCleaner. It still comes back after a reboot. I have removed BOTH Office 2007 and Office 2003 and I can reboot any number of times and it stays uninstalled, but as soon as I insert the Office 2007 install disc it ONLY gives me the upgrade option and returns to this state where both 2003 and 2007 products appear installed in a confused state.
 

Answer:Office 2007 Upgrade - Office 2003 Remains and won't go away

You could do a System Restore, if the restore point is there from when Office 2k3 was installed. You can also try Microsoft's Fix It tool at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...3/140b4079-8899-4f15-a86c-608babe588bb?auth=1 but you need the original install disc and the key for Office 2003.

I've an almost new machine that I've installed Office 2007 Home & Student. On my previous machine I had Office 2000 premium installed. Since Home & Student is just Excel and Word I was wondering if I can install Access and Outlook from my old Office 2000 CDs to compliment my Home&Student?

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!!

Answer: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.

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?
At this point I am using windows XP - tablet edition.

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.

Right click on the .xls file you want, and choose Open With. Select Excel 2007; then below the box with all the available programs, there should be a check box that says something like "Always use the selected program to open this type of file." Check that box, and it should always open w/Excel 2007.

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 to Office 2007

What edition of Office 2007 are you looking at buying and more importantly WHAT do you expect out of your Office 2007 experience. Yes the interface is different, there are new file formats and wizards - but if you are happy with Office 2003 then you may not find 2007 much different.That said - I used both and I prefer 2007. As a student, the obvious choice for me was Home & Student 2007 - I only upgraded to make use of the new reviewing tools in Word, such as the tri-pane review feature - which has greatly helped in writing my thesis. That said, the Home version can be installed on 3 PC's, but doesn't include Outlook - so your contact an e-mail question is moot if you want this version. (You get a useless copy of Onenote instead, why not Access?!) So you will need Office Standard and up for Outlook...If you purchase a non-upgrade edition then you can install Office 2007 alongside 2003 - the only problem here is that Outlook must either be 2003 OR 2007, can't be both. I found that my installation of Office was installed in the same place as my previous Office XP installation and the programmes were removed automatically (except for the ones that aren't included in my 2007 version.)Can't comment specifically with Outlook as I have a uni account with e-mail facilities so I don't use the software...You ask about pitfalls - well be aware that Office 2007 saves all files in a new XML format, whilst you can read older formats from previous versions, the older versions CANNOT by defa...

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!

Answer:Office 2007 vs Office 2003 for new Win 7 64-bit laptop

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.

That's just what I would do personally, but do whatever you feel is best for you.

Question: Office 2007 Trial

I am using Windows 7. The laptop came with Microsoft Works and a 60 day trial of Office 2007. I opened a Word 2003 doc (from my memory stick) and it automatically opened in Word 2007 in compatibility mode. Does this mean I have begun my 60 day trial of Office 2007? It asked for a product key but said I didn't have to enter one and opened anyway. I am happy to go on using Word 2007 with only the old features to edit 2003 docs and save them as 2003 if it will allow me to do so. My previous laptop, which also had a trial, claimed it would only open 20 times. Do I have the same issue here? (The old one had Office 2003 so I never had to use the trial). Look forward to hearing from other users.
 

Answer:Office 2007 Trial

I haven't got a clue but you can bet your bottom dollar Word 2007 will cease to operate in 30 days time unless you pay for it.

Either cough up for Microsoft's bloatware or uninstall all of MS Office and install Open Office which is free and recognises Word and Excel files from any version of MS Office.

Answer:MS Office 2007 trial

It seems that the trial version is still installed in the Laptop and its entries in the registry are now causing it to expire. I assume you didn't uninstall the trial version before installing the "boxed" copy? Uninstall Office 2007 from "Control Panel > Programs and Features" and then install it from the full version installation disk. Any documents that you've created shouldn't be affected by this.

Hello verbotten and welcome to the forums

I'm glad to hear that you managed to resolve your issue, and thank you for sharing the solution with us.

For future reference, I would advise that you uninstall software using RevoUninstaller :

Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

It will run the built-in uninstaller then it will remove any left-over files.

I use Office 2003 and am quite happy with it. However, I have just bought a new laptop with a trial copy of Office 2007 on it. My first thought was just to let it sit there as it didn't seem to be doing any harm and so I installed Office 2003 and all appeared to be fine. However, when I tried to download an add-in for Office 2003, the validation tool would not let me as, although Office 2003 is validated, Office 2007 was not. Plan B, therefore, was to validate Office 2007 just for the sake of it. I duly got my product trial key, but whenever I open Office 2007 it just produces a variety of error messages but refuses to ask for a product key so it is impossible to validate. Trying to uninstall Office 2007 produced a total system crash which could only be repaired with system restore putting me straight into a viscious circle. Has anybody else had a similar problem and, if so what was the solution?

My Satellite A200 came with a trial version of Office 2007 which I do not want. It does not even seem to have installed properly as when Word is opened it comes up with a Setup error. Word does work after the error message has been closed. I have installed my Office XP on the machine and I want to uninstall 2007 especially as when I open some documents the machine defaults to the 2007 version.
However when I go to uninstall it starts the process and then just stops, and nothing happens - it is still there.
I have uninstalled my Office XP version to see if that makes a difference but it doesn't.
Any ideas anyone? I have Vista Ultimate

However, I would now like to remove the download.

Have tried Control Panel/Add/Remove...no way.

Answer:How to uninstall MS Office 2007 trial?

You may need to uninstall the 2003 version first. You might need to try a reinstall of the trial version also and then uninstall it. When you have both properly removed, then do the 2003 install again.

Hi,

I recently downloaded the Home & Student Edition of Microsoft Office (free trial) for making a PPT to present to advertise my website. However, I have noticed that Publisher 2007 is good at creating newsletters, so I thought maybe I could use it to email a weekly newsletter to my members.

Publisher 2007 isn't included in Home & Student Edition Trial.

I want to get started using it soon, but I was wondering if Office would let me trial another Edition after the Home & Student edition has expired?
Thanks in advance,

When I bought my new laptop I naturally removed all the extra programs and useless crap that came with it. Now I have an entry in the Add/Remove Programs list that I can't remove; Office 2003 Trial Assistant. When I try to remove it, a box pops up that states "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable." Then it gives me the option to specify a new path for the file. It is looking for AssistantSetup.msi, but this file obviously doesn't exist since I removed everything.

I've tried to look for the program and file on the Recovery/Driver disc but could not locate it. My next approach will be to download the Office 2003 trial version from Windows.com in hopes that when I install it, the missing file will be restored and then I will be able to completely uninstall the trial version.

If anyone has any other suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Sadly your trial period has finished ( no workarounds ) and options are to buy Office 2007 or you could use a similar application that has many of the options of Office 2007 and will save and open office format files, bonus is its FREE.

Hi guys,

This is my ifrst post here. This is about the Non-Working of the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial Version Installation.

Actually I had downloaded the Microsoft Office 2007 Trial Version from the Microsoft office site. The Download (of about 648.58 MB) was done properly and an Icon was placed on my Desktop along with a Folder consisting the MSOffice downloads.

During the download process there were two Extraction Of Files processes automatically done by the downloader manager.

When the download was finally over and the final installation (the INSTALL NOW button showing up) was to begin I was prompted that 'My Outlook 2007 would not be installed by default because two (2007 trial and my older 2003) copies of Outlook could not coexsist on one PC'.

So I refered to the Microsoft KB article describing the above scenario and followed the instructions which stated that I had to remove the earlier version of outlook 2003 and then install the new outlook 2007 trial OR I could still keep my outlook 2003 and install the Office 2007 Trial Suite without Outlook 2007.

I chose the second option to Keep my 2003 Outlook and install Office 2007 Trial without Outlook.

So following the steps given I simply clicked the INSTALL NOW button on the dialogue box and let the files get CONFIGURED ( the CONFIGURING OFFICE 2007 process in the wizard).

The Configuration process was completed with the green blocks (progress of configuration) getting filled up throughout the sm... Read more

Answer:MIcrosoft Office 2007 Trial not Working

I dont know WHY this is happening.Because of the earlier Trial install. Hidden in the depths of your computer, there is now information, designed to stop you installing the trial version over and over again. It is not a good idea to go looking in the Registry, either.So the message re expiry is accurate.Never have to buy a program again, just reinstall the trial; I'm afraid not.Fortunately, Office 2003 is an excellent suite; I looked at 2007 and decided not to bother.
