I hope I didn't do something really stupid here...it didn't occur to me that it might be stupid until after I did it.

Anyway, here is what I did...I had Word/Excel/Publisher 2003 installed on my computer. I upgraded to Word/Excel/Publisher 2007. Then I installed Frontpage 2000 onto my computer. I then went and updated my Frontpage 2000 (it needed to install Service Release 1a, Service Pack 3, and some other updates).

As it was installing the updates, it said "installing updates for Office 2000." Well, will the fact that it installed the updates for all of Office 2000 cause problems with my Office 2007 installation? It doesn't seem to have caused any problems, but for all I know, it might have caused something I won't notice until later.

Both Office 2007 and Frontpage 2000 are installed in the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office" directory; however, Office 2007 seems to be in a Office12 subfolder, while Frontpage 2000 seems to be in an Office subfolder.

Thanks for the advice,
mike.

Unlikely to be a problem

The reference to updating Office 2000 was because it was updating an Office 2000 programme
