There are a number of web postings (Google) that describe how to disable the
annoying install dialog boxes that come up when switching between Office
2003 and Office 2007 on a dual install machine.

See my tech's notes below.this is how they did it. You don't need
Cornerstone to do this, Cornerstone is just a security program we use to
keep students from making permanent changes to machines.

I'm not sure if the following info is what you're looking for, so let me
know if it is not.

We installed Office 2003, and ran its programs. Then we installed Office
2007, and ran its programs. Your lab machines are locked down with
cornerstone, so when they reboot, Office 2007 is always the last to have
run. When you switch back and forth between 2007 and 2003, an installer runs
for a short time (couple seconds) before the program opens.
