While visiting my favourite blogs, I discovered the very interesting article „What is “Custom XML?” … and the impact of the i4i judgment on Word“ from Gray Knowlton published on 23. December 2009.

In some cases – if Word 2010 and Word 2007 are installed on the same system – it may happen that Word 2007 tries to reconfigure itself by opening the installer first each time you start Word 2007. I also encountered this problem on a parallel installation of Word 2007 and Word 2003.

This behaviour of Word 2007 can be avoided by creating and/or setting the registry entry “NoRereg” for Word 2007. Ok, this tip isn’t very new, however I’ll mention it here, because this problem with 2007 was a little bit annoying.
