  • 5. Running two versions of Office 2003 on the same PC
    I currently have a PC running Windows XP SP2 (Dutch language version) and Office 2003 Home Edition (also in Dutch language). I now have an opportunity, via my employee and the Microsoft Home Use Program, to purchase a copy of Office 2003 Professional. Since I share the computer with my Dutch wife, and I'm English, ideally I would like to purchase the English language version, install that on the PC. and set XP up so that when I use my account I can run the English language version, and when she users her account, she can run our existing Dutch language version. So, my question is, is this possible, and if so, how?? Thanks in advance! Gary

OS = XP  pro with sp2

When not on an account with admin privilages Office always runs a mini 
install when you click on the icons to start the application.  Happens with 
all apps in office.

Thank you for your help.

1.XP - Outlook Express runs as Administrator but not Limited user

This topic belongs in but since I'm 
already replying...

Your problem is probably due to upgrading in-place from Win9X and switching 
to NTFS at the same time.

Log on as gpz, then open a Command Prompt. Enter the command SET then look 
for the output line which starts USERPROFILE. It is probably pointing to a 
path other than the "normal" 2K/XP default which would be Documents and 
Settings\gpz. Log on as an administrator and grant full control to the 
profile path for gpz.

Quicken is an application which stores data by default underneath its 
Program Files directory. Microsoft published guidelines years ago which 
state that Program Files is for storing program files. In other words, 
assuming that applications are designed properly, the threat of virus 
infections would be reduced by making everything under Program Files 
read-only except when logged on as an administrator. Since you obviously 
can't do anything about Intuit's design at this point, log on as 
administrator and grant change permissions on the Quicken data directory for 
gpz (or a group containing gpz, if there will be other Quicken users). Try 
to keep permissions as narrow as possible. For example, don't grant them to 
the Everyone group or grant them at the Program Files level.

Upgrading in place, especially from 9X all the way to XP, is difficult. You 
may also find apps that cannot be fixed without re-installing. Even though 
you might have an app which supports 9X and XP, it might have 2 different 
versions of a DLL file and only install 1 of them, depending on the OS it 
detects during installation. When you upgrade the OS, it no longer has the 
compatible DLL. There are many such situations you could run into, which is 
why people rarely upgrade in-place across multiple OS generations.

4.I am running Excel 2003 from Office 2003 Professional

I am running Excel 2003 from Office 2003 Professional When I initially go 
into the program, I have full mouse functionality (ie clicking on menus, the 
sidebar, etc.), but as soon as I click on a cell, I lose it. When I click on 
a cell, all of the sudden, the program acts like I have not released the 
mouse button and highlights all the cells the pointer runs over and it won't 
free up until i close the programme. Can anybody help me please?

5.Regular Run As... option (not Run As Administrator)

I have Vista Business.  When I shift+Righ Click an item, I can see the Run 
As... option, but when I click on it, UAC asks for my consent, but I do not 
get the prompt to enter the user credentials to actually Run the program as.  
("Run As..." is different from "Run As Administrator").  I need to run some 
things not just as a local machine administrator rights, but as a totally 
different user (for instance if I had to run certain programs as a different 
AD account).

How can I get back the regular Run As... command back so that it will prompt 
me what account to use?
