Regarding installation of the free CD with the latest issue of NZ PC World

I am curently using MS XP, if I install the free disk on the same PC will the two software suites "clash", is it safe to operate the two in tandem.

If the trial version of Office 2007 has Outlook 2007, it will "clash" as you can only have 1 version of Outlook installed.

If the trial does not have Outlook 2007, then it should "cohabit" OK.

In any case please make sure that you have a backup copy of all your critical data before loading the trial software.

I'm running XP and have just loaded Office 2007 (Trial as in PC world)
Haven't struck any problems yet but then I didn't use Outlook before so can't comment on possible clash.
A document created in Word has an extension .docx which I thought looked a bit peculiar and sure enough the recipient of my document couldn't open it.
There is an "out" tho - "save as" in compatibility mode produces the normal .doc extn.
It seems to load up more slowly than previously but I was only using Office 97

On install, you are given the option of removing the old version or retaining it - I retained it and it still works. I hope it remains so when the time comes to uninstall 2007.
Good luck
