I installed Microsoft 2010 without writing over my 2007 version (I need both for work). They both work fine except for one small problem. Whenever I open either the Word 2007 or the Word 2010 they go through a configuration process before opening. When I opened Excel and PowerPoint both versions either at the same time or just one open at a time this didn't happen. Then I tried Access, just opening the 2007 version and it went through the configuration process before letting me use it also. Is there a way to stop them from configuring every time I open them? I don't know why only some of the office suite opens with no problem but the other one always configure. I'm stumped.

Don't know exactly, but I suspect there are shared files and Registry Keys which is causing this. Thought all versions of Office Suite, no matter the year, were somewhat compatible with each other as long as you saved files for the specific year program you use. I always just update to latest (2010 or just 2007) and then it will open 2003 and save 2003 formatted files. Never seem to have a conflict doing it that way.
