Best Install Procedures for Microsoft Office
Installing More Than One Version
The most common error people make when installing multiple versions of
Microsoft Office is that they do a default installation. No can do. You must
install multiple versions as follows:
Install oldest versions first. If you have already installed a newer
version and want to install an older version, then you must first completely
remove the newer version
completely, and reinstall oldest to newest.
- Install to different directories. It's okay to install the first (oldest)
version to its default location, which is C:\Program Files. However, I
currently run four versions and have each in their own folder right on my C
drive, with folder names as follows: Office97, Office00, Office02, Office03.
- When installing, choose the Custom Install option. At the top of the
options, you can click on Microsoft Office, and choose "Run All From My
Computer". This is the best option for optimum results. If you do not choose
this option, you won't get many things installed, such as the Wizards, which
are so helpful to those of us who need them!
