    Word 2000 and 2003 on same CPU (2000/2003)

    Is it possible to have both Word 2000 and Word 2003 on the same CPU? I would fix the file association for .doc, .dot, etc. to point to one of them. What problems would I encounter? It would be to support different customers who use different versions, and my co-workers seem to believe that we need to have both versions available.

    I will be off for a couple of weeks, but will check the forum from time to time, and will respond upon my return. Thanks for any advice!

    It's possible to have both Word 2000 and Word 2003 on one system. It's essential that they are installed in different folders, but that's the default anyway: Word 2000 in C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice and Word 2003 in C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice11.

    If you're also using Outlook, be aware that there can only be one version of Outlook on your system. If you use Word as e-mail editor, the versions of Word and Outlook *must* be the same. You cannot use Word 2000 as e-mail editor in Outlook 2003 or vice versa.

    Thank you, Hans.

    I will try this approach and will advise if I encounter any strangeness.
