    My Mac Book is running Leopard and I have Office 2004 installed. I now want to install Office 2011. Do I need to uninstall/remove 2004 before installing 2011? Thanks.

    You can keep Office 2004 installed if you'd like. If not, just drag the Office 2004 folder to the Trash bin.

    It's best to wait to remove until you are satisified that Office 2011 is working and that you got all your mail out of Entourage. Often import fails and you need to have Entourage installed to get your data our as .rge or .mbox file.

    When I installed Office 2008, in the installer it looked for older versions and asked if they should be deleted. Easy way to get rid of that old stuff.
