Default Help with MS Office 2007

Okay, I'm about to install ... but I can't have two instances of Outlook. I want to discard the new version and keep the new one. It says I can do this, but I'm not sure how.

Anybody used MS Office 12 yet?

Well, firstly, you will need to uninstall the existing version of outlook.

Click Start > Click Run > Then type "Control Panel" exactly like that, without the quotes..then, click Enter, or OK.

You will then be displayed with a box like this..



Click, add/remove programs (the one highlighted), find the existing Outlook application, and click remove.

Then just install the new version

Ahh, I have just realised - I am presuming you are using XP, post back if your not..

I think he meant discard the old version, and use the new one.

you can have both versions. just change the installation path and when it asks, say you want to keep the existing version. i have office 200 and 2003 running together fine (though i mainly use openoffice)
