  • Question

  • I have Vista Ultimate & Home & Student version of Office 2007, wanting Outlook I had to install a trial version of Office Pro while I purchased Outlook 2007 which fitted my requirements. Now having a purchased copy of Outlook I find that 1) I cannot install the new version of Outlook and 2) I cannot uninstall the trial version Office Pro, it wanting the original installation disk ! Have installed Ultimate on another disk and installed Outlook there and obviously everything works. I'm at a loss of what to do next.
