Hi All,

I am facing with an issue :

My client requirement is they want both Office 2010 and the previous version of office i.e. ( 2007 & 2003) in the same machine. I have installed both 2010 and 2007 in the same machine, but whenever I launch MS Office Word 2010 and then launch MS Office 2007 then it is going for a repair and vice versa.
This is happening only in the case of Word.
I have tried using Procmon, and also checked with picturetaker and various blogs, but I am not getting any solution to it. It goes of repair.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

This issue is very known espacially in MS Office application. When both versions of MS Office installed in same machine this would cause conflict of running of the application. This continous repair process deletes registry in the machine. I would suggest to run winword.exe in its directory. When this not cause any repair, then setting shortcut to advertised "NO" in the pacakge will be the possible solution.

I hope this suggestion helps you.

What possible reason could there be to run older versions of Office on the same machine? If you need to write older file format, you can set all the Office apps to write in those by default.

If there is some other compelling reason, perhaps you should consider application virtualisation.
