Do I need to install MS Office 2003 to bring MS Office 2003 files over from an old hard drive to my new computer?

by on November 28, 2011

Q: I have new pc running Win 7. Have hard drive from old pc (mobo blown) in hd enclosure. Since I have a a bunch of docs, pictures, etc., in MS Office 2003 as well as many folders, contacts, etc., in MS Outlook 2003, do I need to re-install MS Office 2003 from the cd, then bring all the stuff over, or can I just bring the stuff over (w/o running the MS Office 2003 cd)?

    You can just copy the files over. There is no need to install Office 2003.

    If you want to be able to edit the documents on your new computer, you can install Office 2003 or newer.
