					In Windows, can I install and run multiple
versions of Microsoft Office?
Microsoft does not recommend installing multiple versions of any Office
product, but it is possible to install and use more than one version of Office on
a single Windows computer. For example, you can install and use both Office
2000 and Office XP on the same computer.

Before deciding to install multiple versions of Microsoft Office, it is important to
make sure that there is enough available space on your hard drive. This is
especially important for the initial installation of Office 2000, for which UITS
recommends a minimum 900MB of free drive space. The completed
installation will not be this large, but the initial temporary files copied to the
hard drive during the installation require large amounts of free drive space.

Order of installation

If you want to install and use more than one version of Office on the same
computer, you must install the earliest version first. For example, if you want
to use both Office 2000 and Office XP on the same computer, you must install
Office 2000 first. This step is necessary because of the way registry keys,
shared programs, file extensions, and other settings are managed for each
version of Office, and for the programs that are included with each version.
The order of installation for different versions of Office follows:

   1. Office 95

   2. Office 97

   3. Office 2000

   4. Office XP

   5. Office 2003

Installing Office XP

By default, Office XP will install over any previous version of Microsoft Office.
In order to keep a previous version of Microsoft Office, you must do the
following:

   1. Change the installation location for Office XP to something other than
      the default selection. For example, it is easy to change the location to:
      /Program Files/Microsoft Office XP/ If you don't change the
      location, the installation of Microsoft Office XP will overwrite files from
      previous versions.

   2. When the installation program offers to remove earlier versions of
      Office, check Keep these programs to prevent their deletion;
       however, if you forgot to change the installation directory, your earlier
       Office programs will be deleted no matter what you do.

Multiple versions of Outlook

Microsoft Outlook 2000, 2002, and 2003 cannot coexist with any previous
versions of Outlook. All previous versions of Outlook will be removed during
the installation process of Office 2000, XP, or 2003, even if during Office
setup, in the Removing Previous Versions dialog box, you've selected
Keep these programs.

Potential problems with multiple versions of Office

      Microsoft Clip Art Gallery and Microsoft Graph will not run correctly
       when installed on a computer system running an older version of
       Microsoft Office. Because of the way the registry entries are used,
       UITS does not recommend that you install multiple versions of these
       programs.

      Because the Office 2000 shortcut bar uses Windows Installer
       shortcuts, it cannot use the existing toolbars or buttons from earlier
       versions of the Office shortcut bar.

      Office 95, Office 97, and Office 2000 all use the same shortcuts under
       the Start menu to start programs. Office 2000 will overwrite these
       shortcuts during installation. If you rename the Office 95 or Office 97
       shortcuts before you install Office 2000, you can use the shortcuts for
       both sets of programs on the Start menu; however, this will require
       large amounts of available RAM to handle opening all of these
       programs at one time. Plan on 16MB of RAM per application launched
       on startup, beyond what is initially used by Windows 95, 98, and NT.

What should I know about installing Microsoft
Office 2000, XP, or 2003 for Windows?
If you wish to install Microsoft Office 2000 Professional or Premium, Office
XP, or Office 2003, UITS recommends that you first uninstall any other
versions of Office you currently have installed. This will help ensure a clean,
stable, error-free installation. Follow these steps:

   1. From the Start menu, select Settings, then click Control Panel.

       Note: The Windows XP default desktop view and Start menu are
       different from the Windows Classic View (e.g., in Windows 2000).
       Therefore, navigating to certain items can be different. In the interest of
       broad applicability, most Knowledge Base instructions assume you are
       using Classic View. For information about switching your Windows XP
       default view to Classic View, see the Knowledge Base document In
       Windows XP, how do I switch to the Windows Classic View, Classic
       theme, or Classic Control Panel?
   2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.

   3. Select the older version of Microsoft Office, then click the
      Add/Remove... button.

   4. Click OK.




In Windows, how do I uninstall Office 2000, XP,
or 2003?
To completely remove Office 2000, XP, or 2003, and all corresponding Office
program components from your computer, follow these steps:

   1. From the Start menu, select Settings, then click Control Panel.

      Note: The Windows XP default desktop view and Start menu are
      different from the Windows Classic View (e.g., in Windows 2000).
      Therefore, navigating to certain items can be different. In the interest of
      broad applicability, most Knowledge Base instructions assume you are
      using Classic View. For information about switching your Windows XP
      default view to Classic View, see the Knowledge Base document In
      Windows XP, how do I switch to the Windows Classic View, Classic
      theme, or Classic Control Panel?

   2. In the Control Panel window, double-click the Add/Remove
      Programs icon.

   3. From the list of programs, select the Microsoft Office version that you
      want to remove. For example, if you have Office 2003 installed, select
      Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003. Click the
      program's name, then click the Add/Remove... button (in Windows
      95, 98, or Me), or the Remove button (in Windows 2000 or XP).

   4. In Windows 2000 or XP, you will see a dialog box asking "Are you sure
      you want to remove Microsoft Office (version) from your computer?"
      Click Yes. The uninstaller will launch and complete with no further
      prompts.

      In Windows 95, 98, or Me, the Office Setup program will launch and
      give you three options: Repair, Add or Remove Features, or
      Remove Office (for Office 2000), or Uninstall Office (for Office
      XP and 2003). Select Remove or Uninstall, then click Yes in the
      dialog box that asks "Are you sure you want to remove Microsoft Office
      (version)?" The Setup program will then uninstall Office. Click OK when
      it finishes.
What should I do if I can't remove or reinstall
Microsoft Office 97, 2000, XP, or 2003?

XP. It contains such applications as Word, Access, PowerPoint, Outlook, and
Excel. For more information on Office 2003, visit:

To use IUware Online, visit:

  http://iuware.indiana.edu/

The CD version, Office 2003 Professional, is available on two CDs for $25 at

.mspx

Office 2003 requires, at minimum, a 233MHz processor. However, a Pentium
III processor is recommended, and a Pentium 4 processor will provide
"optimal performance" according to Microsoft. 128MB of RAM is required, and
you must be using Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 or higher, or Windows XP.
400MB of free hard drive space is recommended; the actual amount needed
depends on what components you choose to install. For a detailed list of
additional system requirements, see:

When installing Office 2003 via IUware Online,
what should I do if prompted for an installation
CD?
When you install Office 2003 via IUware Online, you may be prompted for an
installation CD. This is because the installer program thinks FrontPage 2003
is a part of Office 2003, which is not the case. Simply click the Cancel button
in the prompting window, and installation will continue as normal.

FrontPage 2003 is available through IUware Online, however. For more information,
see the Knowledge Base document At IU, how can I get a personal copy of
Microsoft FrontPage?
