Recently a user has requested to use MS Access so we have purchased an office 2013 pro plus license. The existing office using is already office 2013 standard.

I can only search an article on how to perform the upgrade for office 2010 and 2007.

Deploy different Office 2010 suites
Deploy different Microsoft Office 2007 suites (step-by-step)

May I know if this also applies to office 2013?

Also, if I follow the steps "Uninstall-Install", will it delete Outlook's archive files / user profile?

Appreciate for any helps.

Answer:Upgrade office 2013 from Standard to Professional Plus

As far as I know you should be OK. Outlook stores most details in the Outlook Files, which on my computer are stored in my Documents directory.
Just to be safe copy your Outlook Files to a thumb drive or similar. Also make a note of all you email setting that are found in Outlook under File & then Info & click on Account Settings & make a note of all the settings.

I am sorting out a PC and software for a UK Registered Charity. They need Access so it means a professional version of Office. I am looking to save money where I can as it is a charity and have been offered the following:

Bit worried about the term "Dummy licence"!
Would disclose the company who are offering this via a PM if required.
Can anyone advise me on this please?

Answer:MS Office Professional Plus 2013

You will only need a full version of Access is you will need to edit/create forma, reports, etc. You can use the free Access runtime to "run" Access applications and enter data.

The only PC/Workstation that needs a Full version of Access is the one doing development for the application.

I have many users that run my Access applications with just the free Access runtime.

Answer:Corrupted PST file (office 2013 standard)

It meant that your pst file is corrupted and you need to create a new profile to access Outlook properly.
For the recovery of your Outlook data from corrupted pst file you can use Kernel for Outlook PST Repair Tool which can easily recover your data from damaged pst and provide option to save it to DBX, EML, MBOX, MSG, TXT, RTF, HTML and MHTML files.

Answer:Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 - 64 bit and 32 bit compatability.

Don't know where you heard that, but it's not true. Your emails are saved in a .pst file on your computer, and that file can be read by both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Outlook.
 
In any event, I'm wiling to bet the emails are also saved on the mail server you are using, and the mail server will work with either 32-bit or 64-bit. Once you open Outlook, they will either re-populate from the mail server, or you can just import the .pst file.
 
In short, no email conversion is necessary.

HP 15-f337wm Notebook, Win 10 Home 64-bit. I accidentally deleted something unknown tto me that stopped me being able to attach photos to my AOL mail.   A few days ago Microsoft (via internet) downloaded for me a two month trial of MICROSOFT OFFICE PROFESSIONAL PLUS 2013 which for reasons unknown to me FIXED the problem!    Yesterday I purchased at Walmart a OFFICE HOME & STUDENT 2016 product key.  Am only interested in downloading what ever it was that stopped me from being able to attach pictures to my AOL emails. I would like to keep the WORD but am not interested in the Exel, PowerPoint and OneNote unless someone tells me I need to download ALL of them to fix my photo attaching problem.  Also, do I need to uninstall the trial before downloading the new product key?

Answer:Uninstall trial version Office Professional Plus 2013 before...

Hard to say what happened with the AOL photos but that full Office 2013 has a photo editor program included and that may be what started the photos working right again. Since that was a 2 month trial you are not going to be able to keep it anyway. I would uninstall the Office 2013 before installing the Office 2016. If you do not, the Office 2016 upon install will give you the option to keep or upgrade all parts of the Office 2013 which have corresponding apps in 2016. However, since the 2013 you have is more full-featured you will likely wind up with a mish-mash of 2013 and 2016 components and it is going to be confusing when 2013 expires.  If, after the 2016 install, your AOL picture problem is back, post back then and we can attack that issue on its own merits. I'm sure it is a very easy fix and likely just a file association thing. It's not really fixed until you understand how and why it is fixed.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

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 .

Hello all: I purchased the MS Office 2013 Professional Plus using the Home Use Program and installed it with no problem. BUT I installed the 64 bit version on my Windows 7 Home computer(64 bit) and what I have been reading is that I should have installed the 32 bit version. Is there an 'EASY' way to convert the 64 bit version to a 32 bit version? One of the reasons I want to change is because the Service Pack 1 will not install on the 64 bit version even though I went to the Microsoft Download Center and selected the 64 bit version of the SP1 to download. Any help? Thanks to all who answer.

Dan

Answer:Office 2013 change 64 bit to 32 bit

Internally 32 bit and 64 bit applications are very different and there is no way to convert one to the other. You would have to uninstall the 64 bit version and than install the 32 bit version.

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.

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.

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 . !!

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.

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.

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 do have a .pst backup just in case but sometimes when putting this back it messes up everything and i do not want to spend hours fixing it nor a divorce (lol) over this.

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,

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

Answer:Office 2010 or Office 2013 ? Help Me Decide

Can't say much to features but I don't like the flat washed-out look of 2013. Approx 60-70% of my clients that installed 2013 went back to 07 or 10. The others like 2013. Did notice an issue with 2013 Outlook when it was first released - IMAP accounts constantly syncing and going through bandwidth like crazy on a few accounts.

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.

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.

Good morning,

I recently upgraded from Office 2010 Pro to Office 2013 Pro. However, after the install, all of the office products are showing as <NAME> (desktop) - i.e. Word (desktop), Powerpoint (desktop). Yet, when they are opened, the program is shown as Word 2013, Powerpoint 2013, etc. When I try to pin a file to the taskbar, it pins it under the Word (desktop) program, but when I open that file, it opens in Word 2013.

I am able to pin both Word 2013 and Word (desktop) to my taskbar. I am ONLY able to pin files to Word (desktop), but files only open using Word 2013. Both options open the same program. It is frustrating to have one program pinned just to have files pinned, only to have those files open in another taskbar "tile."
Why are they separate? Is there any way to get rid of one?

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated!

Answer:Updated to Office 2013 Pro: Word (Desktop) vs Word 2013

Hi PrimetimeHero welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It does seem that you have a duplicate set of short cuts to your Office products.

Normally it is best to store your Office product files in your Documents Library, under their various Folder titles such as Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets etc. This keep them all in the one area for easy location.

Check to see whether you have duplicate copies of the actual files & if so make sure they are up to date & correct & delete one of them. Then delete the duplicate Shot Cuts then open your Documents Folder in your Documents library. Then locate a file in Documents such as Word xxx & if you want to have a short cut to it on your Desktop, right click on it & use Send To (create Desktop short cut).

As your information is not really clear, perhaps you could post back with more info on where your various Office files are actually located.

Below is a screen shot of my Documents Folder to expalin what I have been saying.

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.

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).

Please posters who have actually TRIED this combination (on ANY version of 64 bit Windows 8). One often get posts like "It *should be possible*, or I don't THINK it will work. 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.

Answer:Office 2010 (32 bit) and Office 2013 (64 bit) together

Here is one reference that might satisfy you:

"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.

Hi! I'm having a lot of complain from my colleagues when i installed the MS Office 2013 not the new features of it but the annoying boring color (White-Grey-Dark Grey). i just want to ask if there's any chance or any possible way we can change the color theme of it into different color.

if there's a way of changing it by using software or any kind of application or by accessing regedit it would be appreciated.

thank you and advanced

Answer:MS Office 2013 Theme...can we change the color theme?

As far as I know there is no way you can change the colour scheme & I don't know of any 3rd party software to change it either.
I use Office 2013 Pro & while I was not impressed by the colour schemes to begin with, I have got quite used to it. While it is nice to be able to play with colour schemes it does not make it work any better.

I'm very confused about Office 2013. This site and other claim it is now available to businesses

http://www.engadget.com/2012/12/03/office-2013-rtm-live/

But I can't find were to buy it Also, there is office 365 which is confusing me even more.

And I can find a customer preview when searching for 'Buy office 2013 business': http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/officepreview But what is this?

Is it really available at the moment? Or should I get 365? Any feedback would be great
 

Answer:Office 2013 is it available now?

It is available to businesses through their volume licensing program, but you can't buy it retail yet.

The customer preview is a beta version that you can try before you buy it. It has a limited term (30 days, 60 days, etc), after which it will expire unless you enter a valid license key.

Whether you should get Office 2013 or Office 365 depends on your need. Office 2013 is the next version of the Office suite we're all used to. Office 365 is subscription based and can be installed on up to five computers. It has more cloud services and will provide some syncing between the computers.

This article from pcmag might be helpful if you want to read up on some of the differences.

Question: MS Office 2013

I have a fully licensed copy of MS office 2013. I have been sent a word.doc attachment on an email and saved it to the HDD, but Word refuses to open it!!!!

Answer:MS Office 2013

First thing I would suggest is to ask for the file to be re-sent, as it is possible that the file has been damaged in transit.

I have also had occasions where a "Word Compatible" program has been used to generate the document and this is not actually compatible, Re-saving the original as another format Docx or even RTF can sometimes solve this, (I've even seen this happen when using another Word revision to generate the document, though this is rare)

Question: 2013 office

Hi I just purchased office 2013 through my company for my daughters laptop, can I use this on my laptop to or am I restricted to only one user per purchase?

Answer:2013 office

It has been reported on this forum that installers of Office 2013 purchased via company benefits plans are ONETIME, ONE COMPUTER online installers. So, unless you have Office 365 subscription you are pretty much permanently locked to one computer.

In other words, you get an exe file of about 300-400 KB. This thing has a key embedded in it. Once you will start it, it will download Office 2013 installation files.
This function is a onetime function. Likely, it wont work again even on the same computer.
You won't be able to REinstall your Office 2013 even for this current computer with the very same file.
You would have to purchase some extra backup dvd in order to be able to reinstall it EVEN ON THE SAME computer.

Thus, indeed Office 2013 available via company benefits plan is likely locked to ONE computer and ONE installation on this computer (if you have your hdd wiped and will try to reinstall it on the same computer without extra backup dvd it WON'T work).

This issue has been bothering me for awhile, short description....

Windows 7 and 10 sharing files via workgroup with one gig switched network, using local accounts. Initial opening and MS Office file (.docx, .xlsx, etc.) takes anywhere from 15-25 seconds. Opening another file with the same extension is instantaneous, pops right up.

Closing the the app and immediately opening even the just closed file takes 15-25 seconds to open. And again, opening another file with the same extension is instantaneous.

Locally opening just the app on Windows 10 results in the same, the message states "Starting application...", "Loading plugins....", etc. Opening a new window of the same app is quick, it's only at the initial app start there's the delay.

All MS Office apps configured to start with a blank document. I've tried deleting history, modify default folder, etc., but no use. All Office apps are blocked from accessing the internet, they have access to only the local network. That didn't help either.

Interestingly, Visio 2013 does not do this, it's pops right up, regardless if the file is local or remote....

The system has a one gig Samsung 850 EVO drive, 16 gig memory and i5 3350P quad-core CPU. While the CPU is getting old, it is not the source of this issue.

Any suggestion for eliminating the initial delay for MS Office apps?

TIA..

Hello everyone,

I have some issues I can't seem to figure out and hoping to find a solution here. Any help is more than welcome. I try to explain it as clear as posible. All users work in a domain on windows 2008R2 server.

When I would like to open an online image (illustrations I used before in office 2010) I get following error:
“There are some temporarily problems with the server. You are able to work ofline if you would like to insert images from your computer”.
I keep getting this message while others can get there online images.

If I right click on a webpage that is made with word to open it with word I get this message:
“Word is not able to start in safe modus. Would you like to recover?"
Others can open this webpage like this. If I am in word I am able to open the webpage. If I have to do this everytime I loose a lot of time. Recovering word does not seem to work either. In this case I get following message:
“Setup of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 is completed”. I don’t use office 2010 enymore. I use office 2013 now.
I can’t start word in safe modus either.

I hope this is a bit clear for you. I really appreciate all the help I can get.

Just had to share. Been working in Office 2010 for the last few years, upgraded to 2013 Pro (because it only costs $10 with the MS work at home price).

At first I hated the new ribbon, and how the apps open, how they look, etc... So I tried as much as I could to make it look like 2010, somewhat successfully.

I only discovered this weekend how much better Excel and PowerPoint 2013 are than the 2010 versions. I spent about 14 hours this weekend creating my own automated analysis spreadsheet for my work, mostly doing logic and formulas looking up values from other spreadsheets then exporting them into PowerPoint charts and graphs for the monthly executive reports for a program I just took over. They guy doing it before me did most of the work by manually manipulating the data, starting with 20-40MB spreadsheets, something that takes a day or so to do every single month. I'm now glad I decided I did not want to go through all that crap work in following his technique...which I could hardly follow anyway.

In the process I realized the formula analysis tools are actually useful...something I cannot say for Excel 2010 or earlier. That was the one big thing that helped make it all work for me, the 2010 version on my work PC is just stupid comparatively. Not only 2013 will tell you there is a formula problem, but it even tells you what part of the formula, and lets you edit it in the troubleshooter directly.

We're about to upgrade from XP and Office 2002 to Windows 8 (or hopefully 8.1) and MS Office Home & Business 2013 plus Publisher.
My queries are about the 365 edition of Office (which I know includes Publisher). I've done a lot of research, and read glowing information and reviews about Office 2013, and the 365 subscription edition. But everything I've read doesn't answer a couple of simple points. What I really need please, and can't find, is to get some advice from people who have used this.
My questions are these - can anyone advise me please.
1 - Have you got to be connected to the internet to use Office 365 - what happens if I want to type a document in Publisher (or possibly Word), and we can't connect to the internet?
2 - Can I save all the documents on our computer - or has it got to be on Sky Drive?
3 - I'm a fast typist, and expect to see instant results on the screen as I type. If I'm working online, and not with a particularly fast internet connection, how will I get on? Even typing this question into the box on PC Advisor Website, there's a short delay.
Any advice and comments would be really welcome, please. I'm surprised that I haven't seen much about Office 2013 and 365 so far, except for sales talk and reviews.

HiI recently purchased the top spec Helix through the Lenovo website, along with Office 2013. The Helix arrived and in the box was a CD of office 2013. There were no instuctions on how to install this (no CD drive on Helix) and also the Helix already had a trial version of Office 2010 installed, therefore making it impossible to install Office 2013 unless you know what your doing. I am surprised at the lack of customer service Lenovo gave this, do they expect everyone who purchases their products to be IT savvy..? I rang customer service and she insisted this needed to be logged with Tech Support after arguing it was not a Technical query (as I had already installed and configured Office 2013) Would like to guage responses to their customer service as I am a first time Lenovo user

Answer:Helix and Office 2013

One option is to use a usb cd drive to install the software. If you don't have a usb cd drive, then hopefully you have access to a computer with a cd drive and copy the contents of the office cd to a usb flash thumb drive. Then use the usb flash thumb drive to install office on the Helix.

 Hello All
 First I must thank DC3 for his help on the problem that spawned this post,
 I have simplified my problem that I originally posted about. To solve the main problem, I had to download and install Office 2007, to be more precise I had my IT guy do it. Unfortunately he left Office 2013 installed, So now my app needs Excel,to run and sees Office.2013 first,( which is corrupt), and without intervention will not open.So I am asking for your help in deleting Office.2013. It looks like I need to use a removal tool which MS is happy to provide, but I am afraid it will un-install Office 2007 also..
 Normally I would have no problem with that, but I do not have Product Key which I am sure would be needed for re-installation of Office 2007.Is it possible to un-install Office.2013 without touching Office 2007? I realize I may have to update and repair Office 2007 after dumping Office 2013. Your help will be truly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Uninstalling Office 2013

Right click your Excel file. Select Open With. If you do not see Excel 2007 in recommended programs then click on the little down arrow to expand other programs. If you do not see Excel 2007 there then click the browse button and browse to the Excel 2007 exe file. Make sure the box for " Always select this program" is checked.
