validation 0f 2003 versions while running 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently running the 2007 version of of microsoft office and I wanted to download a template to use in word. But it comes up that my 2003 version is not genuine (but im running 2007). I bought 2007 about 4 months ago and I know for sure it is gunuine, I bought it from office works.
    How can I tell the computer to use the 2007 version for validation?

  • hailz,

    You will most likely need to uninstall Office 2003, revalidate Office 2007, and download the template to use in Word for Office 2007.

    For instructions on uninstalling Office 2003, you can use Add/Remove Programs and/or Windows Installer Cleanup Utility:

    To verify that the Microsoft office products are genuine, please visit the site below.

    I hope this helps,
