    Ready to install Office 2011 for Mac. Currently we are running Office 2008 for Mac.

    What is the best way to eliminate Office 2008 and to ensure a clean Office 2011 install?

    For most Mac programs, I would normally drag the application folder to the trash, and then do a library search for some entries related to the program. Will this work for Office 2008 to Office 2011? I ask because the M$ installers seem to more than simply add the app to your app folder and update the libraries - and don't get me started on the horrors of the Windoze registry errors.

    Office 2008 has a RemoveOffice.app in one of its folders.

    I installed Office 2011 and didn't remove Office 2008 for a day or two.

    Thanks, Remove.app worked. Didn't know it was in there.
