MS Office XP to MS Office 2003 Pro

  Durko 16:18 27 Nov 05

I'm moving up to MS Office 2003 Professional and have Office XP installed at the moment. I know I have to remove XP to install 2003 effectively, but how do I transfer outlook express settings etc so they function again after 2003 is installed??

Advice appreciated.

Do you mean Outlook rather than Outlook Express?

You can install Office 2003 without removing XP - the installer will remove Office XP then install 2003 leaving your Outlook settings intact.

If for any reason you want or need to remove any version of Office and retain all your settings (not just Outlook) it can be done with the Save My Settings wizard which is part of the ORK Tools download. I've had a quick look at the Office website for a link, but can't find it. It definitely existed at some point though, because I use it to back up my settings in case I need to reinstall Office.
