Can I run both Word 2003 and Word 2007 on Windows 7?

Abrielle May 21, 2011

I use Word 2007 at home and Word 2003 at work. I know that I can save 2007 documents in earlier formats, but sometimes, it would be easier to use Word 2003 when I work from home.

Can I install this on my Windows 7 Home Premium PC?

    yes, you can install Word 2003 on Windows 7. See this page on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center: Microsoft Office Word 2003

      I should say that it's also possible to install Word 2003 alongside of Word 2007! However, you must choose a custom installation. This article here shows how to install Office 2007 when Office 2003 is already installed. It should also work the other way around.
