I ran Office 2003 but recently installed 2007 Home and Student, WITHOUT Outlook. I left 2003 word also installed, casue I'm not sure yet I like 2007 Word. Now my Outlook 2003 will not use either Word version as the email editor, but insists on using Outlook as the email editor. You lose some nice graphics with that, plus some other formatting glitches, and I don't like it. Is there a registry tweak or something else that will let me run disparate versions of Word and Outlook, and still have a Word version as the email editor? And if so, which version of Word must I choose for this? Thanks.

Try the reg fix @ either of these links & see if ti helps:

WORD 07 & 03 Co-Existing

Multiple Versions of Office (w/screenshots)

Note: It's always a good idea to back up your registry before trying this.

How To Back Up & Restore The Registry in Windows

Or use Erunt to back your registry up.
