    Post Running MS Office 2003 and MS Office 2007 on the same network.

    Hi

    We are considering running MS Office 2007 in ICT suite while keeping MS Office 2003 on our school laptops and teacher's PCs.

    Does anyone know if there are any insurmountable technical issues involved in this setup ?

    I've been told that running two sets of policies for two ms office apps might be a problem but I cant really see that our current policies for MS Office 2003 are really doing very much and we should be able to run MS Office 2007 in our ICT suite without any policies.

    If your just upgrading the computers that are gonna have it, and not running them side by side on the one machine, I dont see any problems.

    You may wish to install the 2007 compatabiluty pack on the machines keeping 2003, just so they can open any of the new type of docs.

    As above, although you may want to set a Group Policy so that it auto saves in 2003 mode for both office packages?
