    Microsoft Office 2010 is installed on my PC (Dell Studio XPS8100, Windows 7). Another member of the household has asked whether she can install Microsoft Works 9.0 on my PC, now that her PC is on its last legs. (She greatly prefers Works over Office, for its simplicity and because of her long-term familiarity with Works.) If Works 9.0 is installed onto my PC, would this cause problems for Office 2010, Works 9.0, and/or my PC? If so, are there workarounds? Thanks.

    The official "word" from Microsoft (pun intended) is that Office & Works can co-exist on the same PC.

    Provided you do not intend to share documents between Office & Works (ie both suites will be used separately), there are no "workarounds" or special procedures you need to remember when using them.

    Following up on your reply -- What would be the risk of sharing documents between Office 2010 and Works 9.0? Not that I intend to, but am curious nevertheless. Would that create problems for Office 2010 (which I absolutely need)? If so, are there any workarounds to resolve likely problems? Thanks for your help.
