Windows Compatability

Hello,

I have Microsoft 2007 on my computer right now and Outlook 2003. My computer tech said that I need to keep my old Microsoft office 2003 on my computer for Outlook '03 to work. He will not uninstall the old Microsoft office & Outlook because it takes too long and could crash. Does this make any sense?

  1. Hi :)

    No, its tosh... lol

    We load Office in my shops a lot....

    And it takes a few MINUTES to uninstall...

    Make sure you have all your emails and addy book and folders saved first though...

    There is even a REPAIR option if its giving problems...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Yes it does, because of the way 2007 works vs 2003 the layout and format of pages is different, 2003 has a problem diplaying 2007 word document ect, when trying to run say a text file of 2007 to 2003 it comes out all wrong.
    Saying that you should be able to save a document to office 2003 format anyway in 2007.
    So the tech is off the ball.
  3. Your tech guy should find a new job and you should find a new tech guy. Like Brett here :)

    Hi :)

    Hehe, in my shops, I drill into all my guys/girls that we all give what I call "BEST ADVICE"

    I do the same here, all it really means is being HONEST...

    Sometimes in the shops it loses us (me) money, in the short term, but long term it makes us a lot of money from regular customers... and a good reputation...

    All the best Brett :)
