We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
 
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

Answer:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

I have Microsoft Office 2003 professional edition installed on my laptop currently. I also have a 2013 professional plus version disc that I can install. Would there be a problem with installing both on my laptop? Is there a lot of difference between the two versions? The reason I'm asking is that I like the 2003 version I am using but would like to test out the 2013 version before I dump the 2003. Thanks, Micromos

If you update to Microsoft Update, then both your Office product updates and other updates will be listed when you click Custom updates.
It's a good idea to do this periodicaly, even if you have Automatic Updates checked, because there may be hardware drivers on your system that need updated. Automatic updates will give you both Office and Critical updates for your computer, but not Hardware updated.s.

Answer:Help with Office 2003, Office 2007, Outlook Express, Windows 7

Hi,
Outlook Express is not available in Windows 7. Try and use Windows Live Mail instead. It works with most e‑mail accounts, and you can import your e‑mail, contacts, and calendar from Outlook Express into Windows Live Mail. Windows Live Mail puts all of your e‑mail in one place.

Notified that 3 automatic updates were available to be installed. Two of the three were installed just fine but (KB943552) which is a Junk EMail Filter update will not install. Checked via Google and this is a common problem but with an incredibly complex fix of the registry. I do have Outlook as part of the Office Suite but do not use it. I can live without the update but I am constantly reminded that updates are ready, etc. Any way to at least make the icon not appear other than to opt for no automatic updates? I would like to install it correctly. Yes I did use a registry cleaner but cannot restore at this point since I have no idea when in the past 2 weeks it was done.

Hi there
Unless you have an ACTIVE Internet connection (or other Network Mail Server connection such as Exchange) you will NOT be able to set up OUTLOOK 2013.

Outlook 2013 requires (and there is no option unlike in Outlook 2010 to disable it by unchecking a box) a TEST email to be sent and working before your account(s) can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck.

Why on earth did Ms do this --it's not necessary and it is a Hassle for some people who are on the road, have purchased Office 2013 and want to set it up instead of having to wait until they get home.

Also a hassle if they want to prepare company laptop computers with email parameters in advance of the new Exchange email servers being rolled out to the users.

Even if your work policy has mechanisms where the USER can configure the email connections themselves they won't be able to set it up until the Servers are actually in place so you can't set the accounts up in advance.

The box I've shown here is from Outlook 2010. In Outlook 2013 the option is filled in and greyed out so you can't change it.

BTW I prefer and use Office 2010 myself but was trying to help a colleague to set up Office 2013.

Of course you can uncheck the Test email box. It has been so in all Outlook versions, is still so in Outlook 2013.

The option is grayed out exactly as long as the NEXT button is grayed out i.e. as long as they could not be used due missing credentials, until the setup has all relevant information for an email account to work (email address, incoming and outgoing servers, username and password). When you have filled the needed credentials, both the Test box and NEXT button become visible and can be clicked / selected.

Although I could well understand that setting up an email account, which in any case needs a working connection, would require an existing connection, this is not the case with Outlook 2013. You can set your email accounts up while sitting in a pub in Brussels watching Premier League Football without Internet connection if you want to .

Hi there

Whoever designed the base colors for Office 2013 must have been totally STONE DEAF and COLOR BLIND at the same time. I can't believe that comments weren't made before this stuff was allowed out of the door.

There's almost no possibilities to customize the backgrounds or colors and on a large monitor the base white looks really HIDEOUS -- you need a good pair of Sunglasses while working with it.

The only other choice is some type of Grey (shown in screenshot) which looks very similar to "The Fruit Company's Window colour scheme. Still looks hideous and that Blue !!!!!.

Outlook also displays the unread message titles in the most sickly blue (can't seem to change it) I've ever seen.

Before I remove this POS from my computer is there anyway to De-Uglify or customize like I had in Office 2010 with the Black background.

I don't like it opening with a prompt screen before I get the base screen (often needs another TWO keyboard strokes !! -- example for EXCEL 2013 shown) -- I should be able to open it in a Window with the menus just like like Office 2010. It means I now have to make a load of extra keyboard strokes before I actually get a workbook screen to start getting my work done.

I don't want the sign in reminders either -- I don't intend to use Cloud services etc.

Cheers
jimbo

Some time ago I was using Office 2003 and I read or was told that it would not or was not being supported any more. So I bought Office 2013. However, for whatever reason (I don't remember) I left Office 2003 on my pc and installed Office 2013. (Maybe I was afraid of losing my documents or whatever so I left 2003 on the pc) I found that with both Office 2003 and Office 2013 every time I would open a Word file it was opened in 2003 ( I would need to use the "Open With" option to get my docs to open in Word 2013. Since I have now gotten used to working with Word 2013 I figured that it is time to make Office 2003 go bye bye! I have been using Outlook 2013 even though Outlook 2003 is still installed on my pc. I don't seem to have any problems with Outlook 2013 but I would like to uninstall Outlook 2003 as well (I assume that when I uninstall Office 2003 then Outlook 2003 will be gone as well) So I  want to uninstall Office 2003 and leave 2013 on my pc. Are there any problems with doing this?  Will all of my files be saved? Or do I need to back up any files? If someone can guide me through this I would really appreciate it.Edit: Moved topic from Windows 10 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Any idea when Office 2013 will be available for download / upgrade?

Thanks!

Answer:Purchased Office 2010 w/ free upgrade to Office 2013

Hi there
it's in the Ms store already -- although IMO I'd stick to Office 2010 if I were you.
Anyway YMMV so here's the link (UK store) .

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

Cheers

Office 2016 Installation Routine Deleting Older Stand-alone Apps






I can't say I wasn't warned. I was part way through installing Microsoft Office 2016 on my primary workstation when I got a message that said, "Stop, you should wait to install Office 2016." The error message went on to say that if I decided to continue anyway, my copy of Microsoft Visio Standard 2013 would be removed. Since I had the original disk from when I purchased the software, I went ahead. Bad move. It turns out that when Microsoft says that Visio 2013 won't work with Office 2016, it means it won't even have the chance to work. Any attempt to reinstall the software will be thwarted. The fact that you paid for the software is beside the point. You're basically out of luck. When I went to the Microsoft community forums, which is where Microsoft handles much of its tech support, I discovered that I wasn't alone. Apparently hundreds of people who'd purchased stand-alone Microsoft Office products were affected, and they weren't happy about it.

Furthermore, the problem extended far beyond Visio. Users with Microsoft Project, Publisher, Access, InfoPath and SharePoint Designer were also affected. Likewise, Microsoft customers who purchased Office Apps that are normally part of Office suites but may have been purchased separately, such as Outlook 2013, were also affected.

Hi

OS: Windows 8.1
Office Version: Professional Plus 2013

Every office application I open seems to have a classic unthemed title bar and not maximise correctly. When opening an office application a number of things happen:
The application opens behind any open windows
The application when maximised appears to be open full screen with in an invisible frame
Drop down lists within the application instantly close when clicked on

Here are few images showing what I mean:





Steps taken to try to rectify the problem:Reinstalled Office after having used Revo Uninstaller to remove any left over traces
Rolled back to a time I don't believe the problem existed, thought this may have existed from the start but never realised due to lack of use
Reinstalled Graphics Card drivers
Turned off any OS resizing options
Tried changing the OS theme back to default
Tried changing the screen resolution

I should also mention that this only affects office applications and no other applications seem to have any issues like this.

I know I can get around the issue of it being maximised, as can be seen from the screenshot. The issues with dropdown boxes etc is a pain, any help you guys can give would be appreciated

Answer:Office 2013 - All office applications have sizing and title bar issues

Have you tried an Office repair. This is how to do it with Windows 7, Open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013 & Right Click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options to try. Windows 8 might be different as I haven't tried it.

I have Outlook 2003 running on Windows 7. When I want to save an attachment to a preset folder the folder view settings are not saved. The correct folder opens and the items in that folder are correctly sorted it is just that the width of the columns has not been saved correctly so that information I want to read is invisible until I manually change the width of all viewable columns.

Answer:office 2003 explorer not saving column width in Windows 7

If you're only saving the attachment to that folder, what happens if you go through Windows Explorer and then open that folder? Are the column widths displayed correctly? What is the problem with the width of the columns, and how do you have then set to display?There are many factors that go into the viewing of the files, so it could be that each one is manually set, and you need to set one, then apply that view to all folders. Or there may be another issue.More detail would be good.

Hi there
PLEASE TO ANY DEVELOPERS OF SOFTWARE : Don't dumb the stuff down so much that it's impossible to repair it if it goes wrong.

Outlook 2013 won't set up an email account if the TEST SEND EMAIL fails.

This is a really stupid error on the part of the developers -- if you are in some places often your ISP won't let you logon to your email server to SEND email from programs like OUTLOOK (SPAM protection amongst other things) but insist that you use their webmail unless you are actually LOGGED ON to the ISP.

ISP's have no problem with you READING Email while on say a public / other Wi-Fi system but often restrict the SENDING of emails through their servers from such Wi-Fi accesses - you often have to be logged on to your own ISP.

So if you are trying to set up the account while you are staying in a Hotel and using their broadband service it fails -- all I want is to be able to READ email until I can logon at home.

I can SEND via webmail or mobile phone so the stupid install process shouldn't stop me CREATING an account even if for the moment I can't use it for SENDING.

GRRH! -- Don't the developers EVER speak to the END USERS any more before designing some install rubbish system like this.

Showstopper for me this one

Rolled back to Office 2010 -- Outlook 2010 works fine - you can SKIP the test email send --this is what they should allow on Outlook 2013 as well. !!!!!

For years I have used Microsoft Office but never used the Outlook part for emails. With Live Mail on its way out I thought that I would try it out. I have set up my accounts and can send and receive with no problems and it is slowly populating all the various Received/Sent/Deleted sections.
I have loads of contacts in the Contacts section but what I have yet to figure out is how to get the To: box to autocomplete the email address as I start to type in the recipients name. I am finding that I have to look up the email address and get that inserted. I am sure that there must be an auto complete but I have yet to find it.
All suggestions gratefully received.

hi guys,

anyone knowing a way (after reinstall of Office 2013 or recreate of an account) to keep the rules active.

Even if i only remove the 2 accounts and reinstall them, i get the message that the rule cannot be executed and i have to create all of them again. Can only do that when a mail enters.

But also all those needed to be redirected to the junk mail (500) ask for intervention, so 500 times moving those to the junk.

it would be nice to one could skip the recreation of all that.

Any ideas are welcome.

Hi there...me again!

My friend is buying a new laptop and is wondering whether to get the Office suite that includes Outlook or not...

He currently has Win XP and Outlook which he uses at his job (at church) which syncs to his phone. He wants a new laptop (which he's found) and it has Windows 8. He wants to know whether his email will work and synchronise to his phone via Windows 8's 'Mail', i.e. can he pull all his emails across from Outlook into that and then can these by sync'd to his phone?

The email server is account server is POP/SMPT so was wondering if this is all possible?

Many thanks,
Chris
 

Answer:Question about Outlook (Office 2013 version)

you usually use IMAP to do that
and it will depend on the email service - nothing to do with outlook really
who do they have there email with ?

Buying office with outlook included is very expensive and there alternative free clients
for example
Thunderbird https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/thunderbird/ is very similar to outlook, and i have used this on various consumer machines replacing outlook when they have upgraded/changed PCs

Since upgrading my main desktop to Windows 10, I began having trouble with my Office 2013 installation. I would get the "swirling circle" and the "application has stopped responding" error messages very frequently. I was able to buy the Office 2016 suite for $10 through my employer (Microsoft HUP) and since upgrading the application, I have not seen the error. Of course, I've only had Office 2016 on my PC for one day, so I'll keep checking to see if the problem returns. Has anyone else had issues with Office 2013 and Win10? Thanks!

Answer:Office 2013 issues, upgraded to Office 2016...

In fact Office is working nicely for me in Windows 10. I had PCs with Office 2007 and even with the old Office 2003 and I have not yet had complaints about crashes.

Microsoft offers a FixIt tool, which allows you to do a clean uninstall of the Office 2013 files so that you can afterwards create a clean Office installation again. As an additional ressort, there even is a description of how to manually uninstall Office 2013. I did not have to test it, but that might have helped you as well.

On my husbands computer we are running Office pro 2010 on Windows 7.I would like to upgrade it to Office pro 2013. But in Outlook 2010 he has like 40 folders with subfolders full of emails. When i upgrade will Outlook 2013 grab all the settings, folders, emails and put them in correctly? I know office 2013 does not go onto of office 2010 because i did it on my own computer but i do not use outlook on mine, i use WLM so i do not remember what it did for outlook because i do not remember if i put an account in there after i installed it or not. I did mine months ago, call it a senior moment.

Does anyone here using Office 2013, did it as an upgrade and found all their settings, folders, emails, calendar and everything else get transferred into outlook 2013 correctly?

I just installed a copy of Office 2013 on a Pc (actually Win7) that already had Office 2010 on it. I was having problems getting an Exchange logon working and for some reason, upgrading to 2013 fixed the problem. I am working with 32-bit in both cases.

The copy of Office 2013 is working great. It noted there was a copy of 2010 there and copied all the information from the 2010, essentially doing an upgrade.

Now I'd like to remove the copy of 2010 and I'm wondering if that will destroy 2013 as well, somehow. The only strange thing I noted is I initially went into Mail-32 in the control panel to add the exchange logon and it added it to Outlook 2010 (sure, now it works on 2010...grrrh!), so I had to go into Outlook 2010 and remove the exchange account and then add the exchange account inside of Outlook 2013, which worked just fine.

So, I'm thinking if I uninstall Office 2010, then mail-32 will auto point to the 2013 version of Outlook. And I'd just like to get the 2010 version off anyway. But not if it's going to be a problem for Office 2013.

I've looked around the Internet and didn't find anything pointing directly at this situation. If leaving 2010 out there is the simplest solution, I'm OK with that. Thanks ahead of time.

Answer:Will Uninstall of Office 2010 destroy Office 2013?

I have been in the situation where I bought a new pc that had a trial version of MS Office 2010 already installed. I installed a full version of MS Office 2007 and uninstalled the MS 2010 trial version later with no problems.

This was a case where I had MS Office 2007 installed on my work computer and my company had a site license that allowed you to also install a copy at home. That's why I choose the 2007 version over the 2010 version.

Hello, I am new to this forum so my apologies if this is not a new W10 issue.
I have been using W10 on my Dell Vostro 15 laptop, 3000 Series, for about 15 months. When I got the laptop I also installed MS Office 2013 and have been using it for the last 15 months or so without any problems. I got Office 2013 from a reputable vendor. It is original, genuine and legal and registered to me and properly activated. About a week ago I successfully installed the latest W10 update but since then I cannot use any of the Office 2013 products. Each time I go in to Word or Excel it initially opens up but then a small window displays briefly and the program then closes down without any warning.
Can anyone advise if this is a known problem and how I go about getting it fixed? I have been trying to contact Microsoft but don't know how to do so. Does anyone have a telephone number for Microsoft so that I can log this issue with them? Thanks!

However you may actually want this function now or later, so this does not address the underlying trigger for these updates.
Have you ever had a version - or this version- installed e.g. as a trial packaged with the PC?

Following on from helping a neighbour to decide as to the purchase of a new PC, I looked at my computer needs/usage and have decided to have a complete clear out of current PCs and rethink as to what I really use. To that end I would pose :
1) SSD drive - where it is indicated that they are far faster than SATA are there any drawbacks apart from the price and what would be considered a minimum size? I currently have only 89GB for all of my existing programmes.
2) Choosing a new Microsoft Office package, I currently use Word, Excel, Outlook and Access. There are seemingly two options:
Office for Business although does not include Access - for £219
or
Office 365 which does include Access for an annual subscription of £59.99.
It would seem that you take on the subscription and if you decide to cancel the annual subscription then you are required to remove the programme from your PC.
From a previous posting it seems that others use Outlook for all of their contacts, so I could consider using Outlook for that purpose and forget Access.
Any thoughts on any of the above?

Answer:Rethink on completely new PC -SSD - Office 365/Office 2013

compumac: only that, classically, you'd configure your SSD to host your operating system and programs, and keep your data on a 'regular' drive. That way, you can have a relatively small - and inexpensive - SSD. It's only really the operating system and programs that benefit from the much faster access an SSD provides.

I received the message that it is not possible to instal the 64 bit version until the 32 bit version is removed.

I would be very grateful if someone would provide guidance on the correct order and steps to accomplish this change over. The Data is backed up. I would not like to lose the Data in the various programs.
Thank You bats

I bought a new pc a few months ago and installed Office 2013 on it that I had used on my old one
No problem
But on the new pc I kept getting pop ups to activate Office 2016 which was on the new pc.
It will let me open old files but now says activate before using
Am unable to create ant new word docs excel files etc.
How do I just defer to 2013 please?
Do I uninstall 2016 will that force it to use 2013?
 

Answer:Using Office 2013 not a trial copy office 206 on new pc

I am running Office 2013 on a cleanly installd SDD that has only ever had office 2013 installed on it. Any idea why windows update is giving me Office 2007 updates, specifically

(KB947318)(KB2817330)(KB2878233)(KB2878233)

I should decline these, right?

thnx

Answer:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Hello,

I have uninstalled office 2010 few days ago and did a clean installation of office 2013.
But windows update is showing updates for both office 2010 and office 2013.

I have uninstalled office 2010 using Revo uninstaller so there are no traces
Am I missing something.

Answer:Office 2010 and Office 2013 both updates available

Hi there
Why on earth do people insist on using these 3rd party uninstaller apps for BOG STANDARD Microsoft applications --Ms OFFICE is one of the most used pieces of software on earth so installing / uninstalling it should be a breeze via STANDARD uninstall method.

Had you simply uninstalled via control panel then the entire problem would not exist.

Your 3rd party uninstaller obviously hasn't done its job properly as there is still some indication on your machine that Microsoft Update thinks you still have Office 2010 installed.

IMO 3rd party apps are better left for NON OS type applications - things like installing / uninstalling / updating software should be left to the OS itself. Very few 3rd party apps IMO should be allowed to interfere with the internal functions of the OS itself -- even AV software - but that's another issue.

My solution here would be to either restore your syste to a time before you installed the "Uninstaller" app or re-install a clean copy of windows, re-install the version of office you want and apply the updates.

Note -- when Ms updates programs it might make all sorts of registry changes "on the fly" and it's impossible for a 3rd party uninstaller to be able to handle or even find all these changes.

Cheers
jimbo

Hi,

I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1.

I have Office 2013 Professional Plus.

Whenever I check Windows Update for updates, it never seems to bring up updates for Office.  I assume there have been at least some updates to Office 2013 since it was released?

My Windows Update screen tells me:

"You receive updates: For Windows only."

When I click the "Find out more" to get updates for other MS products, all that happens is the IE opens up on a page that says "Use your Start menu to check for updates"

So... how do I get Windows Update to check for updates to Office 2013?  I feel very confused--I mean, shouldn't I be able to set Windows Update to check for updates for a whole host of MS programs (Silverlight, .NET, Office, etc.)?
I've tried changing the Windows Update settings to include other Microsoft products but there's no option to do so when I check.

Any insight would be appreciated! Someone recommended I ask here because I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise.

Answer:Windows Update won't find updates for Office 2013?

So the thing that finally worked was installing Silverlight, which apparently can force Windows Update to include/adopt Microsoft update.  Once that was installed, Windows Update recognized a huge number of Office updates.

Why no other avenues to make the Microsoft Update option show up and get it "switched on" worked is totally beyond me.

Last night I opted to install a major update to Windows 10. This took over an hour to install with several restarts. After the update I noticed that the search function in Outlook 2013 wasn't working, but by checking with Search Tools I found that the index was being slowly rebuilt, so I left the computer running with Outlook open. Coming back to the PC nine hours later, I found this message on a small window in front of Outlook: 'We're sorry, but Outlook has run into an error that is preventing it from working correctly. Outlook will need to be closed as a result. Would you like us to repair now?' There are three buttons: Repair Now (pre-selected), Help and Close. Clicking on Repair closes Outlook; clicking on Help takes one to a Microsoft Office forum, on which only account-holders may ask a question; and Close closes Outlook. Clicking on the x at top right of the small window closes Outlook too. Re-opening Outlook produces the same small window in front of Outlook, and the Outlook screen does not respond to clicks anywhere. I have Avast free anti-virus running.

I have run Offcat and the report says there are five warnings. Two appear under 'Application not responding' and the same two appear under 'Slowness'. Here are the details of the first:

Using Outlook 2003, Part of MS Office Professional Edition 2003, which has the capability of having multiple, separate & complete email addresses, each functioning in their own profile.

E.g. I open Outlook and it gives me a drop-down box to choose which email I want to go to, say email1 or email2.

Email1 has 2 "Contacts" areas defined.
1st problem is how to combine and synch these two. I don't want two.

Email2 as 1 "Contacts" area.
2nd problem is to combine the contacts from Email1 with Email2.

I thought these were *.pab files, but a search for *.pab comes up empty.
I do find multiple *.pst files

Any suggestions?

Answer:Office Outlook - Saving one folder to multiple pst files

Hi hhara,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Vista itself cannot do this. You need 3rd party software. I have searched and have been unable to find freeware that will accomplish your objectives (I have found some that do some objectives like only the email files (and sometimes only certain folders in mail) but not contacts or anything else in the .pst file and I'm assuming you want the entire .pst file).

I have found some commercial alternatives to consider. I have never used any of these products, so the risk and the decision is entirely yours. I present them as merely some options I located. I am not recommending any of them (which is not the same as saying you shouldn't try them - just that I have no experience with them and thus no basis to consider any or all of them worthy products). You may search yourself for others if you wish. Some come with free trials and in those cases, the financial risk is minimized - but I know little more than you will read yourself on the websites about the products and whether or not they will work properly and/or as advertised.

Although Office 2003 Pro was NOT supposed to work with Windows 10, it has been just fine until Windows 10 Creators Update.
Now when I go to save a new document in Word 2003 in a different subdirectory from the default one, the dropdown freezes, and Word crashes with a message "Microsoft Office Word has stopped working". The document is rescued, but still can't be saved elsewhere.
I have tried almost EVERY one of the compatibility modes (win 8, 7, xp, 95, etc.) with essentially the same results.
I also cannot open .docx any more when I could previously in Win10 mode and I think compatibility mode too.
Can't open some spreadsheets in Excel, but using a compatibility mode seems to work. Could open a newer .ppt, but it crashed soon after. Compatibility mode seemed to work at least for that one ppt.

Like many licensed Microsoft products, Office 2010 has a rearm function built-in to extend your trial period an extra 30 days. You can do it in Windows 7 and also in Office 2010 using Office 2010 Trial Extender easily.
The process can be repeated 5 times, giving you a trial length of up to 180 days. But be careful. Click the button once, and the trial length will become 30 days.
Is this legal? Yes. Office 2010 Trial Extender isn't "hacking" Office, it's actually using a standard feature that Microsoft have built into the product. Download Office 2010 Trial Extender. UPDATE: Now supports Office 2013 too.

No.

While possible it is not recommended to install multiple versions of Office on the same computer. But they both must be the same bits. The only way this could be done is to install one on a virtual machine.

yes some extras , they are both 2013 versions at the moment
365 gives you the full range
365 you can unauthorise and re-install on a different PC
365 comes with 1TB of onedrive space
365 you can also put on a tablet or phone
365 will be updated to the latest version

2013 stays on the PC its first installed on and cannot be transferred
2013 you can get different versions (with outlook, publisher, access products), which cost different prices

Hi experts
Anyone know if it's possible to have Office 2010 (32 bit) and Office 2013 (64 bit) running on the same computer. (Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit).

This link partially answers the question but doesn't say if you can mix 32 and 64 bit versions.
I have to keep EXCEL 32 bit as I have some addin's that don't work on the 64 bit version (EXCEL 2010).

I HATE outlook 2013 so the restriction on Outlook is fine by me. Mixing the 32 and 64 bit versions is my main concern here.

(Note you have to have office 2010 already installed to enable the "Side by Side" feature apparently -- not tried it yet).

If you've tried this or can post me to an official Ms link saying it either works or doesn't work then I'd appreciate the help).

I don't actually like office 2013 -- I intend for all sorts of reasons sticking with office 2010 but there will be times when I have to run office 2013 and I really don't want to have to set up a separate Virtual machine just for that - or another Windows to Go system.

"Compatibility with existing Office files and solutions

The 64-bit version of Microsoft Office isn?t compatible with any other 32-bit version of Office programs. So you must first uninstall all 32-bit versions of Office programs before you install the 64-bit version of Office."

I found another on Technet, but like a dummy I left the page, and, for some reason, couldn't find the reference again. It said 64 and 32 bit versions cannot be installed on the same machine.
