|I recently got a new HP running Vista Home Prem w/Office 2007 and then installed Office 2003 Students & Teachers Edition.|
Lucky me as at no time have I seen any prompts of issues, nor am I noticing any.
It does bother me a little that I still have Office 2007 patches installed, but since things seems to be running ok, best to leave well enought alone (at least not to worry about anything Office 2007 related).
But in that I'm seeing prompts to install Office 2003 SP3 and also prompts to install a new patch (Q943973 update for Microsoft Works File Converter) which seems to be requiring the Office SP2 before installing that.
Adding to my uncertainty/confusion is that the prequisites for installing Office SP3 didn't/doesn't indicate users must have Office's SP1 or even SP2 installed, and moreover SP2 seems plainly designed for specific Office XP Suites and Programs (see below) which I don't run on Vista.
Could it be I don't even need Office 2003's SP3?
Refs. from 'see below':
Office SP3 supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000; Windows 98; Windows ME; Windows NT; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP
Office XP SP3 applies to the following Office XP suites and programs:
Microsoft Office XP Professional

Microsoft Outlook® 2002

Microsoft Office XP Web Components
Microsoft Windows Installer version 2.0 or later. Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 and Microsoft Windows XP include this version of the Windows Installer.
The hurrier we go, the farther behind we get.
