Installing 2010 with 2003

    I will install 2010 Home and Business under Win 7 Home Premium when it comes
    from Amazon . 2003 is now installed and I would like to have available it
    on this machine until I get comfortable with 2010. My major use is Word and
    Excel and maybe Outlook. I understand the old 2003 Outlook will be used
    rather than the 2010 Outlook. If I uninstall 2003 Outlook (which I use
    very, very seldom) before I install 2010, will the 2010 Outlook then work?

    Also, how can I get all of the 2003 Word Templates and customization
    transferred to 2010. In the case of the templates I guess it would be
    simply copying those templates to the appropriate 2010 folders but don't
    have a clue about other customization. (Maybe Win7's Easy Transfer.) I
    know how to do it for Excel. In my case it is mostly taken care of by using
    the 2003 Personal XLS.


    I had a brief encounter with 2007 but didn't like the ribbon one bit so I
    went back to 2003. I understand 2010 has some ribbon customization features
    that might make it acceptable to me. I hope so.

    Thank you very much.

    There is no 2010 Home and Business, there is 2010 Home & Student which is
    not licensed for business use.

    You can install 2010 in parallel with 2003 but you can only use a single
    version of Outlook

    2010 will install, by default, to a version specific folder

    Easy transfer is not the way to go, within explorer copy data as neccessary

    Actually there is going to be a Home and Business version. Think Home and
    Student with Outlook but only a single license.

    Hmm! I have an order confirmation from Amazon for Microsoft Office 2010
    Home & Business (Disk Version) [CD ROM]. Are they pulling my leg?

    Just so there is no confusion in this newsgroup - here are the three retail
    Microsoft Office 2010 suites:

    Office Home and Student 2010

    Office Home and Business 2010

    Office Professional 2010

    Here is a blog with Full Packaged Product or Product Key Card tutor and
    basic license terms and links to pre-order any of these three suites at
    Amazon.
