If I already have another version of Microsoft Office installed on my computer, what will happen if I attempt to install Office 365 ProPlus (for Students and Staff)? http://www.leedstrinity.ac.uk/student-life/our-campus/it-services/If I already have another version of Microsoft Office installed on my computer, what will happen if I attempt to install Office 365 ProPlus (for Students and Staff)?/109If I already have another version of Microsoft Office installed on my computer, what will happen if I attempt to install Office 365 ProPlus (for Students and Staff)? <p>​​We recommend that you uninstall your exiting installation of Office. However, the Office 365 ProPlus install is slightly different to a traditional Office install in that it will leave your existing version of Office installed and available to use. If you have an older version of Office such as 2003, you could use this as a fallback option whist you get used to the interface of Office 2013. Your older version can be removed at any time.​</p>LTU Authoring
