You run the LISTool for Office 2003 on a computer having both Office 2003 and Office 2007 applications installed.  After relocating the Local Install Source (LIS) for Office 2003, you find that the Office 2007 LIS has also been relocated; this will cause Maintenance Mode errors in Office 2007.


The LISTool was not designed to move the Office 2007 Local Install Source, but when any source is selected in the LISTool it moves the LIS for all Office applications along with the 2007 versions.


Use the LISTool 2003 to move the Office 2007 LIS back to its original location.  Microsoft does not support using the LISTool to relocate the \MSOCache folder on a computer with both Office 2003 products and 2007 Office system products installed.
