Keep Office 2000 as default, use 2003 just for SIMS
I have a 2003 SP3 admin install point set up with ORK to save as 2000-compatible format by default* - this installs and works fine.
I plan to remove the Word re-registration issue by calling and then closing the 2000 version of winword.exe in a user login script and then merging the following registry key to prevent Word 2003 re-registering itself as the default handler for .doc every time SIMS uses a Word 2003 feature:
Any obvious flaws in my plan?
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
*we have the usual converter packs installed and yes, it probably would work fine 99% of the time, but I'm fed up of the calls saying office is broken when what they mean is it's 2003, not 2000.
