Have Word 2003 & 2010 installed. How do I set 2003 as preferred start programme? Currently files open in 2010 which leads to a long set up time,

I seem to recall you can do this via File associations...

Theses link may help you manage it (although one refers to win-8, the idea is the same for win-7)

In Explorer, right-click on a doc file, Open With, then select Word 2003 from the list. Keep in mind, if the file is a docx, it will need to be opened in Word 2010 unless you installed the Office Compatibility Pack. Then again, you may not be able to install that if Office 2010 is installed. Hmmmm

I'm curious now. Try it out and let us know.

I would think the Word2010 compatibility add-in for Word 2003 would go in OK. I had Office XP installed - with the compatibility add-in - and later added in Office 2010; and could run up either version; and read (still) docx files in XP Office.

Certainly no harm to try adding in that file to Word 2003?
