    Office Word 2007 configuration problem SOLVED

    Evidently there are many others who have the same problem since
    the forums have a lot of people writing to find a solution to this
    problem.

    When opening Microsoft Word 2007 a Configuration window would
    pop up and it would take 40 to 90 seconds for the program to come
    up. It was worse then some of the Adobe programs.. I'm operating a
    Vista Ultimate 64x operating system and thought that might be the
    problem. Evidently it doesn't have anything to do with it.

    I have been trying for weeks to find the solution to the delay but
    have been unsuccessful. I checked the many sites Google brought
    up, checked out several forums and went through all the Microsoft
    Newsgroups to no avail.

    Eureka!! I finally found the solution. This is from http://uksbsguy.com/
    The full URL is at the bottom of the message.

    I followed his instructions and IT WORKS!!!!

    He is evidently a Microsoft employee.

    This is his solution....

    How to get rid of the installer / configuration dialog when running Office
    2007 and Office 2003 on the same system - for Vista and other versions of
    Windows

    I have been asked this many times following up on the blog entry Installing
    Office 2003 and Office 2007 on the same system where once people have
    removed the problem with the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) appearing
    every time they start Office they then get the dialogs below every time they
    switch between Word 2007 and Word 2003.

    when starting Word 2003

    when starting Word 2007




    The fix to the problem is very simple as it turns out - simply run the
    following commands (by pressing the Windows Key+R or typing it into the
    Start/Run command box. Use the line with Office\11.0 if you have Office
    2003 installed and Office\12.0 if you have Office 2007 installed. You can
    use both if you have both installed :

    reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t
    REG_DWORD /d 1

    reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t
    REG_DWORD /d 1

    That is it. Office 2007 might want to have one more spin round the block
    with it's configuration dialog box, but that should be it.

    Thanks for that - I use Office 2007, but wife likes her comfort zone of
    Office 2003. Your tip fixed the annoyance!
