New year, new bugs

Well, the new year is here and the bugs haven't stopped. Im not sure if any of you have had the issue where you have both Office 03 and Office 07 installed on a box and SharePoint doesn't work the way it should. Things like datagrid views crashing ie. I have a fix for it. If you want to know how, email me. I will upload it in a couple of days.

ok, if you need step by step instructions, email me.

But if you go into control panel,
Add remove program
Office 2007, then click remove
Then click add/remove feature
Then make sure wss is unticked
Then keep clicking next til its finished.
Then reinstall office03

That should fix the problem. Like i said, if you need a more detailed instruction, let me know.

Well, that didn't work. I have Office 2003, SP Designer 2007 and Excel 2007 installed. I went into add/remove programs, selected Excel 2007 and remove. I was never prompted to add/remove any features. Instead it just removed Excel 2007.

Sorry, you don't un-install Excel or SP Designer, what you un-install is under "Office Tools" and it's called "Windows SharePoint Services Support". Then under add remove program, do a repair of office 2003.
