  • 1. Upgrading to 2003 from 97 on new machine
    I have a new machine on which I want to install office 2003 pro - I have office 97 (full version) on my old machine which I will throw away. I was intending to buy 2003 upgrade to do this but was wondering is there any way I can get the upgrade to work without installing 97 on my new machine first; alternatively what is the minimum I can put on the new machine in order for the upgrade process to see a previous version.
  • 2. Emailing docs to clients for changes
    I can't seem to find any info on emailing forms and docs to clients for them to make changes to and send back via email for me to update. Specifically, I have a form with checkboxes and text area fields which they could designate various options and preferences. How can I send them the forms and receive them back containing there edits/changes?

    I am trying to move a Micosoft Outlook Contacts folder between computers. Obviously, Contacts is not a wab folder. How should I save Contacts from computer A on a floppy disk, ie file extension? I have saved it as a pst folder, ie backup.pst. However, I have no idea how to import it into computer B. The warnings about opening pst folders are downright frightening!

Office 2003 Updates WITHOUT re-installing office after an administrative install

Postby Saucer Man » Fri, 01 Oct 2004 03:17:08 GMT

Is there anyway to install just the needed updates to an 
Office 2003 installation that was done from an 
administrative install point WITHOUT updating the point 
and re-installing office on the clients?

I just want to create an administrative install point to 
do my initial installs.  After that, I want to install 
just the needed patches and/or Service Packs via somthing 
like SUS.  I don't want to update the administrative 
install point and re-install office everytime.  Thanks.

2.Have Office 2003 installed, update tries to install SP3 for Office XP

This is really annoying...  My windows update constantly comes up and tries 
to install Service Pack 3 for Office XP.  Problem is I have Office 2003 
installed on my system and the SP3 install fails obviously due to the 
version conflicts.  Problem is, with Windows Update set to Automatic, it 
constantly tries to install and fails therefore constantly using up my 
system resourses.

I'm sure there is a registry entry that can be altered somewhere, does 
anyone know how to eliminate this problem?

3.Upgrade Office XP administrative install to Office 2003

I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade an Office XP 
installation point to Office 2003.

I have already deployed Office XP via a GPO. Can I update 
the existing administrative installation point so that 
the clients receive Office 2003 automatically?

5.After Installing Office 2003 without Outlook Getting Updates f

OK, thanks for clarification...didn't see that original post in the other 
thread.  I was hoping that didn't mean that four different versions of Office 
would be running on the same machine - not recommended at all, mainly because 
of the known shared file registration problems.
