Ask in an Office newsgroup to find the Office gurus. I don't know if anyone
has had access to Office 2007 upgrade editions yet. If Vista itself is any
example, you would have to have 2003 installed to upgrade it, but Office is
different in many ways. MS is clearly moving away from verification by
inspection of shiny media and towards verification of a running and
activated legacy product as the basis for upgrading their flagship products.
