    Hi, I have the Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac Test Drive application and also I installed the CD itself as I have the Office 2004 for Mac itself.

    Everytime I open an attachments or a word/excel/ppt doc through emails even with the main Entourage or through finder, it opens the files via the test drive.

    two questions,
    if i use the remove office under the test drive, would that unistall the main office I installed as well or would it just uninstall the test drive?

    How can I change the default to be the Office 2004 I installed?

    Thanks!

    Just drag the test drive folder to the trash and delete it.

    ... or just drag it to the trash and delete it. Office 2004 and Office 2004 Test Drive use the same extra Application Support files that they both install on your hard drive. So no need to de-insall or re-install, just drag the entire test drive folder to the trash and delete it.

    Ahhh, okay, is it just Office.X that had the bizarre behavior if you installed it over its test drive? I remember that people used to have all kinds of trouble with this....

    Yes, it is best to use the uninstaller before installing the release version.
