    Exclamation Installing MS office for Mac 2011 on MacBook Pro

    I have MS Office 2003 on my MacBook Pro. I recently got a MS office for Mac 2011 and wanted to install.

    Do I have to uninstall the MS office 2003 before installing MS office 2011. If so, can anyone help me to proceed?

    Thanks in advance.

    You do not need to no. You can install straight over the top of it.

    iDsagree with th Buzzard alas and suggest you use the uninstaller to remove the earlier version of Office. Are you sure it is 2003, as Mac version were Office v.X and then 2004 and 2008?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    +1 for uninstalling Office 2004 first. If it was Office 2008, I would say leave it alone as 2011 will overwrite most of it anyway. Do as harry suggested.
