    Hi:
    I usually load the operating system in one partition, Office and the other
    apps in other and DAta in other. This way I have the chance to share the
    application partition with XP and 2003 saving hard disk space and keep Data
    safe when I format the op. system partition. I have tried installing Office
    in a differente partition to Vista and it does not work. I install it in the
    same partition as Vista and it works. Is there a way to make them work if
    installed in different partitions?

  2. No. You need to purchase another license for Office
    and install Office on your Windows XP partition.

    Thank you. Have you an idea if this will change in the future?
