Can MS Office XP small business 2003 be installed on a computer

Resolved Question:

Can MS Office XP small business 2003 be installed on a computer that was pre-installed with MS Office XP small business 2002? Do I just uninstall 2002 version first. Which version of 2003 should I purchase? OEM or "full retail box"?

I cannot upgrade from the 2002 version I have on here now to the 2003 version, as I deleted some programs from it years ago that I did not use and I do not have the CD, as MS Office was preinstalled when I bought the computer and no disk came with it.

Welcome to Just Answer


You Can install It , and its your Choice to Buy OEM or Full retail which ever is the Best Deal


Office can be a bit of pain to uninstall , which Can cause problem installing again


so do this


You can use Revo uninstaller


Install and then Use Revo to unsinatall the Program It will list the Items that are installed


Highlight Office you wish to Uninstall and then Click uninstall at the Top


Then When its finished uninstalling Click Scan then select all and Delete it will remove any Left of Items /reg keys


Restart the Machine and Install Office Again

Now what if I purchase 2003 and do exactly as you have said to do and there is a problem or it does not work? Is there a way I can come back to this site and accept your answer at a later date?
