Maybe SMS has the special "we know that the Office product team sucks so we're 
going to do some extra work to clean up after them" feature...

Hmmm, I could have sworn we did upgrades with SMS and it went just fine. Maybe 
I am just imagining that though. :)

Jamie-
Nope-fantastically it does not upgrade 2003 by default. Yet another feature 
from the Office product team :)

Anand,

Why is Office 2003 still on there if you installed 2007? Did it not upgrade the 
2003 installation?

I had to write a script that ran MSIEXEC to uninstall previous versions of 
Visio & Project, so it will probably be the same

Can you direct me to an article or 'how to' for the startup script ?

Was Office 2003 deployed using GP? If not, then the only thing you can do is 
perhaps a startup script that calls the Office 2003 uninstall command.

I have office 2007 deployed using group policy (computer settings).

However it does not uninstall Office 2003. Is there any way I can do this

uninstall via GPO ?
