I have two versions MS office 2007 and 2003.When I open word 2007 I get a window Configuring Process, Configuring MS office Enterprise 2007. It takes 4 minutes to complete the configuration process and  finally MS word 2007 opens. After I close Word 2007 and open again it doesn't start with the Configuration Wizard.
The interesting thing is when close word 2007 and open word 2003 a window appears windows installer preparing to install and word 2003 opens within few seconds. Now if close word 2003 and open word 2007 the same Configuration wizard appears as said above.Both the office versions are licenced copy This wizard keeps coming when only when open word .Any tips  will be greately appreciated

Richard: Just some thoughts...

Maybe the windows installer cleanup tool ? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

I've successfully followed this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304107 to quiet the installer on PC's that have had Office 2000 and anything newer installed on nit.. maybe similar issue with Office 2003 vs Office 2007?


Just some thoughts..
