You can trash or leave 2004. There's no harm done by leaving it, and if
you need any 2004 functionality (e.g., macros, add-ins, etc.), you can
run 2004 and 2008 side-by-side just fine.
Yes, I thought it was bizarre too. When it said it couldn't find 2004
(to validate the upgrade) the pizza wheel kept spinning for about 15
minutes. Before it finished, I clicked Continue and it asked me if I
really wanted to, because otherwise it might not be able to install the
upgrade version. I let it keep searching for about another 15 minutes or
so, but then I gave up and pressed Continue again. The install seemed to
go fine anyway, except that 2004 wasn't deleted.
Is there anything else to deleting 2004 besides removing it from
Applications? I looked for an uninstaller but couldn't find one.
As Charles, I'd like to remove remnants of Office 2004 that might reside in
the System, Library or Users folders. I thought the automatic removal
process of the 2008 installer would do the job. Your counsel?
