Thank you. Don't need those other languages anyway.

It should not be necessary to uninstall Office 2007 first. They will install
into different program folders - but share some default user folders -
unless you change them first as in my previous message.

The same should apply to Windows 7 - though the dialogs may be different.

Very sorry to bother you again but how do I find the user folders for
2007 (and later 2002)?

I assume the change is made in the registry because I did not find it on
Word Options. I looked in the registry for mention of both folders,
including
Hkey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Common\Gener al\Office\12.0\ and
others but could not find where the template and start folders are
specified. Can you help?


In Word 2002, go to Tools Options File Locations to modify the
User Templates and Startup locations (and possibly the Documents
location).

To get to the equivalent dialog in Word 2007, click Office button
Word Options Advanced, scroll to the bottom of the dialog, and click
the File Locations button.

The settings in these dialogs are saved in the registry, but only if
you change them from the default values.
