  • Differing MS Office Behaviour when accessed in WIN 7/XP Dual Boot setup

    I have used MS Office 2003 when installed in XP Pro for some time , specifically WORD and EXCEL.

    Recently , I have installed WIN 7 into a Dual Boot setup with XP . I have XP installed in a 15Gbte Partition and WIN 7 in 20 Gbte Partition . when booted , both of these Apps appear as being installed in the C:\Partition which is 15 Gbts and 20 Gbts depending on which App is booted.

    Both XP and WIN 7 use MS Office and access WORD and EXCEL with the following respective paths :-

    XP(32 bit)
    C:\Prog Files\MS Office\OFFICE 11\

    WIN 7(64 bit)
    C:\Prog Files(x86)\MS Office\OFFICE 11\

    The "different behaviou" referred to in the heading to this post is that , whenever I attempt to start either WORD or Excel or any ".doc" file or ".xml" file in WIN 7 I get a pop up requesting me to accept the Licence Agreement. When this is accepted , the App opens and works normally.

    Can anyone explain why this request only appears when I use MS Office in WIN 7 but not in XP ?

    Is this phenomina connected in some way with my Dual Boot set up ?
