VMWare ThinApp is what you are seeing. I've done some testing while it was still called Thinstall and then VMware bought it. It's nice because it allows you to use Office 2003 / Office 2007 / Office 2010 and many more applications like IE6, IE7, IE8 next to each other. Basically procedure to create it looks like this: You install yourself a clean ...

Though my suggestion was originally denied ;), based on your observations I was probably correct after all: your friend must have had a copy of Microsoft Office which has been virtualized with VMware ThinApp. First, I verified that a copy of the regular winword.exe and excel.exe would not work by themselves. I installed Office 2003 in a Windows XP VM, then ...

Not that I have hear of. But you can install something like PDF Printer The Bullzip PDF Printer works as a Microsoft Windows printer and allows you to write PDF documents from virtually any Microsoft Windows application.

Yes, you can install different versions of different Office products simultaneously. The installer will ask if you want to replace the old version or install side-by-side. For example, at work I have both Access 97 and Access 2003 installed to handle both older and newer versions of MDBs.

I know this is a really old question, but having faced the same issues recently, this is how I solved it for Outlook 2003: On the File menu in a message, click Print, and then click the Options tab. Next, select the Print all linked documents check box.

It's not because the application is called WINWORD.EXE and the icon is the same that it is the exact same application that is shipped in Office. All Office applications have a digital signature. Right-click the winword.exe and excel.exe files and check if there is a Digital Signatures tab. You will notice those applications don't have a signature at all let ...

By default, Office 2003 files open directly in Office 2010/2007 in Compatibility mode, which means that some new features such as Sparklines in Excel or SmartArt in Word or some animations in PowerPoint might not be available or will be greyed out. You will see [Compatibility Mode] after the file name in the title bar. If you want ...

If you press down the scroll wheel on most mice, that shows a centre point on screen and then as you move the mouse left / right / up / down it scrolls away from that point. Move further away to scroll faster.

To transfer auto text entries, follow these steps: Copy the Normal.dot file to an external drive (floppy or flash drive). Paste the Normal.dot file into this directory: Start -> Run -> type %APPDATA% -> click OK. Click on Microsoft -> Word -> Startup and copy Normal.dot there This works for me in Office 2010.

If this is a laptop, take a look at mouse properties. There is usually an option that allows you to configure horizontal scrolling: If this is a desktop, I am sure someone could write some sort of AHK script that when you hold down a key and use the scroll, it does horizontal scroll but by far the easiest way, purchase a new mouse, many have an extra axis ...

Microsoft's winword never runs as a service. winword.exe is actually mentioned as a virus, with removal instructions here. (Do not delete Microsoft's winword by mistake.) I would also suggest some antivirus scans by well-known products. Do not be misled by all these fake antivirus products now floating around.
