I teach Microsoft Office and am reluctant to go and get a brand new computer with Vista because 99% of my audiences haven't made the upgrade and are not interested in upgrading til 2008.

However, I would like to show them what certain products (ie: Powerpoint 2007 and Excel 2007) look like.

In the past when I have loaded 2 different Office programs on the same platform, it gets a little messed up.
I went on the Microsoft groups site and they said it was not supported - which perplex me since the software says for Vista/Xp.

My question (finally) is, are there any tips (other than loading it into separate folders) when it comes to loading Powerpoint 2007 on the XP platform with Powerpoint 2003 already loaded?

Thanks,
Spa

There are ways ofcourse to install MS Office 2007 on an seperate partition. However you would be better served as to first show them the Microsoft Office website with a lot of sreenshots and tutorials. I recently have purchased and installed M$O 2007 and I am flabbergasted by the functionalities. Applications like OneNote make life really easier eventhough this is only an improved version fdrom M$O2003.

BTW I am on XP SP2 and have absolutely no problem. Outlook will slow down due to its functionalities but for the rest Top Of The Bill!!( in this case liiteraly )

I have both versions installed. There was an issue I had with having both versions of outlook so I removed the 2003 version and kept the 2007. All of the other products work fine.
