Installing office 365 (office 2016) and onedrive, PC username replaced

Question: Installing office 365 (office 2016) and onedrive, PC username replaced

Hi,

Before installing Office 365 (office 2016) and onedrive, my username to logon to my laptop, was "AJ ANNING" and a specific pAasswAord. Now my username does not show up at logon. "JAMES ANNING" is what shows up, and the username is now my email "[email protected]" and the password is different. Going to user accounts in control panel the only user is "[email protected]". The user "AJ ANNING" is not there.
Also, I can no longer access 3 of my network drives.
Please advise,

Preferred Solution: Installing office 365 (office 2016) and onedrive, PC username replaced

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Installing office 365 (office 2016) and onedrive, PC username replaced

So even though "the password is different" you are still able to log onto the computer? I installed Office 365 on a new Notebook on Thursday and none of the log-in for the computer changed. As for the Networked drives, you may need to use File Explorer to Disconnect the drives then Map them again [I've had to a couple of times in the past].

Does anyone know how to remove it as a save place or at least as the default save as place? I lose track of more files that way. When in a hurry I think I am saving to documents and I end up saving to onedrive. I have removed it from file explorer but can't figure out how to do it in Office?

They are stuck on "Loading..." and do nothing at all. Resetting the programs or the computer has no effect.

I can open and edit files through windows explorer or the "Browse" button in office but cannot access the abovementioned.

Answer:Cannot access This PC and Onedrive in Office 2016 programs

Ok, never mind. Apparently MS messed up excel and word with the previous updates. I installed the latest two office updates and that fixed the issue.

These two: KB3178673 and KB3178674.

Are there any differences between office 365 home and office 2016 pro when you compared their installations of word, excel, power point and publisher?
For example, is Word from O365 the same as Word in Office 2016? Or does one have more options/features than the other?

We currently use Office 2007 and Office 2010 on our about 20 workstations. I'm looking to move to MS office 365 for hosted exchange. I found out that as of the first of this year, Microsoft no longer support Outlook 2007 or 2010 for hosted exchange. It seems to be working just fine so far at another site I'm involved with. The issue is that if you ever contact support, they will blame the version of Outlook you're on. So, I'm looking at options for upgrading.

Do you guys that are on office 365 for email using the premium version that includes the office subscription or buy Office 2016?

For the most part, we just need outlook, word and excel. We do have 6 people that will need powerpoint also.

Just looking for a recommendation from you guys on what makes the most sense.

Thanks!

HELP!!! I always get an error before the installer finish its installation. In my Previous OS(Windows 7 Ultimate), Office 2016 works fine. Few weeks after Installing Windows 10, something went wrong and everytime I open Word it asks to repair it. I already tried repairing both "QUICK" and "ONLINE" but nothing works. Also uninstalled it fully using the "o15-ctrremove.diagcab" also done uninstalling by MANUAL and install it using the setup, but the setup stops before the installation done and saying an error happen, or somewhat like that.

Answer:Error installing Office 2016

Hi:

Are you trying to install from media (DVD) or from a download?

After UNinstalling, did you manually remove any leftover MS Office folders in your Program Files or Program Files(x86) directory before you tried to reinstall?

Is your MS Office installation properly activated?

If your license is provided from your school, does it permit installing on more than one system at a time?
(You mention having MS Office 2016 on a 2nd computer. I would guess such a restriction probably impacts ACTIVATION, rather than INSTALLATION, but I think MS has tightened up restrictions on "Educational" and "Site License" software. I used to be able to legally install/activate on 2 computers (my work laptop and my home desktop), but the new arrangement only permits 1 install/activation.)

Just a few thoughts...

I've been using MS Office 2016 in it's subscription/365 form for a while like I said but before subscription packages I used physical copies of Office and with those, had a different MS account -- so as it stands now I have two MS accounts and it's actually pretty annoying. Anyway, I've been thinking about trying to get Microsoft Office Certified, so when I dug up my old copy of Office 2010 Home and Student, I decided to to install it, naively thinking nothing of potential complications resulting from two different versions being installed in the same machine, and the installation actually gave no indication that there would be any issues. However, soon after the installation finished, I noticed that every Office Document, be it Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, was appearing as, and opening as, an Office 2010 document.

I thought that was really strange but figured it would be an easy fix and that, for some reason, the default programs had just reverted to their 2010 versions, so I tried right clicking one of them, opening it correctly with Office 2016 but to my surprise, not only was '16 not one of the immediate options I was given, when I did finally track the 2016 program all the way back to it's original installation location, it did not allow me to open the file with it. I then did the next logical thing and tried switching the default executable program for MS Office files back to the 2016 version by going Control Panel > Programs but that didn't work either.

Answer:Anyone know about installing Office '10 on a comp w/a 365 2016 subscription?

Having multiple versions of Office installed on a computer isn't a problem, but you:
a) should always install the older version first (which you didn't); and
b) cannot have both a subscription version and a stand-alone version on the same PC (which is what you have tried to do).
Therefore, you will now need to uninstall one version and, possibly, repair the other.

HI, 
I just bought Office Home and Student 2016 last August 7, 2016 from a mall in Long Island, NY. I tried to install it but it gave me a message:"The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem", whenever I click on Excel or Word.
 
I tried reinstalling it 6 x and no progress. I tried uninstalling and installing the program, the same message I got. I tried Windows 7 update but it seems there is none.
 
The old Excel and Word 7 were package installed in my laptop computer when I bought it from Best Buy in 2011. I bought the MS Office because I had a computer crash. My Toshiba laptop recovered a few of my files. Luckily I have a record of my anti-virus registration and I was able to reinstall it. Now I need MS Office to access some of my files in my USB.
 
Some recommendation I got was to temporarily disconnect the anti-virus or the firewall. I do not know how to do this. Someone please help me!

Hello. My trial versions of office 2003 expired. I installed OpenOffice.org and it has more than enough functionality. I relaced Outlook with Mozilla Thunderbird. The only functionality I need is a calendar. Does anyone know of a good calendar application? Anything that integrates with Thunderbird? Many thanks!
 

Answer:MS Office replaced with Open Office & Mozilla. What application for a calendar?

You can try the Mozilla Calendar plugin although I still find it a little buggy. Using another plugin, you can have a button on the Thunderbird toolbar to bring up the calendar program. It does it's purpose decently though, but I had a difficult time with importing data from Outlook 2003.

Got an error that they could not install the 32bit version as there were 64bit components on the machine. Tried removing Office and installing Visio and got the same error. I don't think he had the option of 32 or 64, and he is getting frustrated. On top of that, we went back to the third party vendor for help or a refund on the price of Visio and they said he had to go to Microsoft. Is there something we are missing? Thanks for your help

Just wondering if anyone else has come up against Error 30029-1011 (0) when trying to install Language Packs for Office 2016.

From what I've read online, the only real solution is a fresh installation of Office. I'd hate to have to do that on account of my Outlook settings and tweaks which have taken me days to organise. There's also the fact that I'll have to chase up the Serial number for the original installation (carried out by a technician at the university where I work after serious recent PC problems).

If anyone has a less drastic solution, I'd be very appreciative

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 Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,

Zaph

The issue is specific to Office 2016 on Win 10 (Office 2016 on Win 7, no problem, Office 2010 on Win 10, no problem). Certain documents (reported by a user who receives documents with Japanese text, haven't seen it happen with others) have the layout messed up, a 2 page Word doc gets spread over 4 pages, and I've been given some sample powerpoint slides which have text overflowing the end of the slide.

Word doc was originally in Legacy 2003 format, I did manage to make this particular document display correctly by saving it in .docx format, then enabling compatibility changes via vba, setting to 2010 compatibility and enabling "Use printer metrics to lay out document" based on what I read here: BUG!! Word 2016 fails to print margins correctly / messes - Microsoft Community

The other sample file I received was a .pptx - haven't been able to find corresponding compatibility options in Powerpoint.

Wouldn't be quite so annoying if they didn't both display perfectly in Windows 7.

Answer:Office Document layout/margins overflow on Office 2016 + Win 10

Turns out it was some sort of font substitution issue. I noticed the fonts in Word/Powerpoint weren't present in the Windows font dir. Copied them over from another Win 7 machine, suddenly everything looks fine.

Not sure why Office 2010 did a better job of it than 2016, I couldn't really pick if there was a difference in the Japanese characters before and after the font, only that the page layout was stuffed...

So, I recently installed Office 2016 and Visual Studio Enterprise 2017, which I need for work and school. Before this I had just installed the Creators Update a few days ago and all is working fine. I searched for updates today, a bunch came up for Office but none for VS. Now, over 3 hours later, it's still at 0% downloaded. I would estimate the download size to be around 1GB, but checking C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution (where Windows stores updates) only shows around 80MB used space. I checked several times and it hasn't really increased. Task Manager shows virtually 0% network usage, a bit here and there, but very sporadic and nothing big. I have access to a business class fiber optics connection here at my business, so speed/bandwidth isn't the issue. I do have a firewall but I have downloaded updates here before on both my business and personal machines. This is my personal laptop running Windows 10 Enterprise.

Disk checks on all partitions reveal no errors and sfc /scannow comes up clean. I've tried deleting the contents of my user and system temp folders, as well as force-stopping the Windows Update service and cleaning its' folder. I've also ran Disk Cleanup.

What could be going on here? Thanks!

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!

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.

Hi there

I think this comment is allowed - there is an NDA but I think this is OK. The latest update installs OFFICE 2016 just fine and works OK. Office 2010 is left untouched so you can run BOTH concurrently.

OUTLOOK 2016 though uses the same data file as Outlook 2010 so SEND from outlook 2010 hoses up with "Cant access Outlook data file".

However once you've sent the email with Outlook 2016 you can see it in the SENT folder of both Outlook 2010 and 2016 so using Outlook 2016 during the preview won't cause carnage to your existing office outlook.

So far very impressed -- FORGET OFFICE 2013 completely. 2016 is STREETS better and you can get rid of that hideous over white theme too. NDA so can't post image.

Note I'm using x-64 for both Office 2010 and 2016.

If you want to try the Links were open this morning -- this could have been an error because they might close again soon.
So far so good -- note some people get activation message unless they have Office 365 subscription --I don't have and didn't seem to get that message.

Am using Windows 10 x-64 Enterprise as the OS I'm testing this on --running on a REAL machine, build 9926.

Hi there

It looks like that a Student and Teacher edition of Office 2016 will be available at around 90 GBP - 105 EUR while an Office 365 subscription will be around 60 GBP - 73 EUR for 1 year. Since the Student edition will work on 3 machines it seems to me the subscription model is bad value compared with Office 2016.

Now there might be a caveat -- not sure if OUTLOOK 2016 is included with Student and Teacher --we'll have to wait and see.

There *Might* also be an Upgrade price from Office 2010 / 2013 too.

I bought my Office 365 for cheap in college. It is registered to me under a college email that I no longer can access.
(this is a problem because I used that account to sign up for Bing Ads and the customer support is always messing with me to prove it is my account, hard to do when you cannot access the old email, it is a pain in the rear)
Anyway, if I buy 365 again and register it under a new email, will I lose access to all the storage I have in my school account, or will that remain. Can the accounts be synced? (the on-screen prompts imply they can be synced, but I don't trust MS enough to not verify that this is true)

I assume if I just renew it under the now-defunct email address nothing will change. Except I will be out $69 for a 1 year subscription.

What if I just buy Office 2016 for $71 and keep it for several years.
(if these guys are for real, https://www.istarsoftware.com/112-microsoft-office-2016)

Is there a difference for my purposes? I use MS Word, Excel and Outlook daily.
But I use them at the novice to lower average level user level.

Do you think Office 2016, that will last for several years and is cheaper, will be OK?

I use Outlook to access various emails and I do some very simple spread sheet manipulations with Excel.

To be honest, if it weren't for Outlook I would probably not buy it at all. I like the email client. Otherwise Open Office (I think it is called) is more than sufficient I would think.

Hi there

It looks like that a Student and Teacher edition of Office 2016 will be available at around 90 GBP - 105 EUR while an Office 365 subscription will be around 60 GBP - 73 EUR for 1 year. Since the Student edition will work on 3 machines it seems to me the subscription model is bad value compared with Office 2016.

Now there might be a caveat -- not sure if OUTLOOK 2016 is included with Student and Teacher --we'll have to wait and see.

There *Might* also be an Upgrade price from Office 2010 / 2013 too.

Hi there

will office 2016 be available as a stand alone (non subscription) product for non corporate users. If I follow my link to Buy Now from the trial preview it only offers me Office 365 or Office 2013.

I'm NOT interested in subscription software or Office 2013.

I suppose then back to Office 2010 !!!!. - I'll see if Office 2016 appears within the next few days --still have 70 days left on the trial preview.

Cheers

Answer:Office 2016 -- Buy Now only links to Office 365 (subscription)

Jimbo, it's early yet and I can't see 2016 on any Microsoft sites, I'd expect it to start showing mid morning US west coast time.

I have an annoying problem. I disabled Onedrive in autostart options. However, anytime I open an Office file like .xls or .pp that is stored locally in the Onedrive folder, the program (Word, Excel etc.) automatically starts Onedrive. This is far from being favorable as I have a limited bandwidth and volume.
How can I tell Office that it mustn't start Onedrive without my promting?

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.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!
Thanks

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?

I removed both Office 2003 and 2007 and installed 2010, I then used virtual XP and installed 2003 there, 2007 and 2010 are too similar and the dll's will 'bite' along the way.

I purcased MS OFiice 2010 Professional through the MS Home Use Program to replace MS Office 2007.

I received the link and product key via e-mail; I've ordered the CD's but they won't arrive for another 2 weeks.

Several posts indicated that I should uninstall the 2007 version, then install the 2010 version. If I do that, I won't have access to the e-mail for the download.

Should i just install 2010 over 2007, or wait for the CD's?

Answer:Installing MS Office 2010 to replace Office 2007

Wait for the DVD, or download the ISO then write it to DVD for installation. After installation, activate it with the licence key you purchased.

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

Answer:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.

Hello
I currently have Office 2003 Student full version installed on my computer. I have received Office Professional Plus 2007 Student media version. Do I need to uninstall Version 2003 prior to installing 2007 or will installation of version 2007 automatically uninstall version 2003. Does all the information in my .pst file convert as necessary for use in Outlook 2007. There are two discs, one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" and the other one called "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 (Microsoft Office Communicator 2007". I'm guessing that the disk with the shorter title "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007" would be the correct one to install. What is the second disk with Communicator? My system is Windows XP SP2, AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core Processor, 3800+ 1.99 Ghz 2GB Ram.

I've had Office 97 since 1997 and have been happy with it, however, since many documents I receive have been done on newer versions of Office, I decided to buy Microsoft Office Home & Student.  My other reason is that I have recently purchased a laptop that doesn't have a word processing program so I figured I would buy the newer version because the salesman assured me that I could legally run the new version on both of my computers, but Office 97 cannot be run legally on both computers.  Since I have thousands of documents done with Office 97 I am wondering how well these documents will open on the newer version?  The salesman at Staples said that the two programs would run along side each other and that I didn't have to delete Office 97 from my system.  Is this true?  And will they play nice together?  I also have more than a few documents on floppies that were made with Word Perfect in 1995.  Will I have a problem opening these in the newer version of Office?  And yes, I still have 2 floppy drives on my computer that I had built about 4 years ago.  I never have much luck putting stuff on re-writeable cds and then getting them to open again and do changes.  I have an external hard drive instead.  Thanks for your time.

Answer:Installing Microsoft Office Home & Student along with Office 97

Word 97 documents will open fine with Word 2007.  You can then decide whether to save it in Word 97-2003 format, i.e., .doc, or the newer Word 2007 format, i.e., .docx.   If you want, you can set Word 2007 to use the Word 97-2003 format by default.Installing two versions of Office on the same computer can be done but it's not recommended.  If you want to install both, do a careful read of this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/218861

My Sony Vaio came pre-loaded with a 60 day free trial of Office 2007. As I preferred to use the cheaper Office Home & Student I uninstalled Office 2007 and tried to load Home & Student. All appeared OK except for some error messages which kept popping up about wrong versions(?) I have now uninstalled Home and Office and restored the laptop to where it was AFTER unistalling Office 2007, so I now have no office on there. Before I attempt to re-install Home & Student, I wondered if I should delete the other two Office programs listed in the "add & remove programs" list in Control Panel. They are Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies and Small Business Connectivity Components. I am in limbo at the moment so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ps: I created a Restore Point before all this fiddling around. If I reset the pc to that restore point, would the uninstalled Office re-appear?

Answer:Installing Office Home & Student over Office 2007

1) I don't have experience installing and uninstalling Office 20072) it is normal good practice to eliminate as many traces of an uninstalled programme as possible, so I would go ahead and uninstall the components you suggested3) then try Home and Student4) restore points are there to keep the operating system in good order; if you unistall thrid party programmes (and Office is one of these) or you delete a data file, these are not brought back by a system restore.

I plan on buying Office 10 in a few weeks (from my college's store, since I get a nifty discount), however my Toshiba laptop has a pre-loaded trial version of Office 07. I have not put in the trial product key yet, so I haven't activated the trial yet (but I have used Word 07 a couple times, but cancelling out of the product key screen).

What would I do to install Office 10? Do I remove Office 07? Would, after installing Office 10, i'd still get the Office 07 nag inside of Office 10? What do I do?

If I decide to install OpenOffice.org instead, do I then uninstall Office 07? Would my .doc files (from another computer and never opened with Office 07) still look for Office or would they open immediately in OpenOffice.org? Same question if I install Office 10?

How would one go about removing this un-activated trial version of Office 07?

PS: If my college's store has Office 07 instead and since I never activated the trial, how would I go about installing that?

Hi...

My lady friend of the moment has been given an Asus Vivobook as a birthday present.

It's a basic unit with an 11.6'' screen which she'd like to use instead of her laptop, when she needs something lighter and easily carried.

The Asus comes loaded with Windows 10 and a one-year subscription of Office 365, which needs activation before it can be used.

Now, sorry folks, I have to admit I'm just not sold on Win10 myself, still using Win7 happily and as far as I'm concerned having to pay Microsoft every year after the 365 subscription is over is not on.
Consequently, I've told her to hang fire before she activates 365.

Now, she has her own legitimate full copy of Microsoft Office 2007 which she likes and uses already, so two questions, since guess who's going to have to do this for her:

1. Assuming it's possible, is it best to uninstall 365 first, then install Office 2007?

2. Or, without activating 365 and simply installing Office over it, will this conflict with the 365?
I'd appreciate any thought or suggestions on this, especially from someone who's actually loaded their own version of Office instead of 365 in a similar situation.

Many thanks

Answer:Office 365 - uninstall before installing own copy of Office?

Hi kwil. Welcome to the TenForums @kwil

First as you are likely aware support for Office 2007 expires this year in October. While leasing Office 365 on one machine for $99 is not a good business case the fact they provide five licenses starts to change the equation, especially for those who want to be current or if they want the Outlook email client. (and you get all the other products.)

One man's opinion on whether to uninstall Office 365 or not. I have found over the years, having two "Offices" leads to issues. I remember several years back when I installed Office 2013 with 2010 already installed Outlook was particularly troublesome.

Additional information can be found in this article. If you scroll down you will see the link on Office 2007 and Office 2016.

Answer:Office Starter. Should I unistall before installing Office Pro?

Removing the original first is the best way. Without removing the original installation you may get problems later on.
I'd recommend uninstalling Starter first. Then you just install your paid version as though you've never had office before; less chance of it freaking out at a previous install.

Hi Tech Guys,

I currently use Office XP (2002) and need to install Office 2003 to use emails I was using on another machine.

I deleted Office XP using Control Panel add and Remove Programs, backed up my Outlook .pst file, changed the name of my .pst file from Outlook to Outlook2 for extra security, and ran the disk to install Office 2003 (this disk has been used before and should work).

The Office 2003 disk would not complete as it does not find some .cab files. When I check the disk these .cab files are there so I don't understand.

My machine is a little old but works well, Toshiba Portege 4010 P3 933MHz, 750MB RAM, Windows XP Pro SP3. I have AVG and Malawarebytes installed. 28 GB HD Capacity with 7.26 GB free.

Cookiegal has been helping me with some ther quetions and has seen scan logs etc to know it is pretty clean of malware and other junk.

Is there a solution to this? I have some important stuff I need to access from emails done in Office 2003. Can I open these somehow in Office 2002 Outlook?

All good ideas welcomed.

Thanks

Subsequently, Office 2010? was installed by his I/T staff to eliminate the extra expense of leasing (via Office 365) or purchasing/activating the resident Office 2016 code. But Windows seems determined to make using Office 2010 unnecessarily difficult.

Specifically, regarding Word 2010, with .docx associated with this 2010 version, whenever one clicks on a .docx document, Windows pops up a message stating something like ? this is a rough paraphrase; I can't recall the exact wording ? "This application cannot run on your PC. Please go to the Microsoft store to find an application that will work with this file." However, .docx files open easily from within Word 2010.

Is the Office 2010 32 bit, like most PCs at that time ? Office 2016 and Office 2010 can run side-by-side only if the bit versions match; ie, both 32 or 64 bit.

Also, if you open a 2010 Word in 2016 Word, there should be a 'compatibility mode' in the document title bar to preserve the layout.

My Windows 8 notebook computer came with 12 months of generosity (!) from Microsoft of Office 365. After 12 months one pays! I do not wish to be held to ransom by MS.
I bought a genuine DVD of Office 2010 a few years ago; I think this was a 3 shot usage (not sure if that means 3 loadings or only to be used on maximum 3 computers); anyway at present I have this installed on one laptop. I would like to load this on to my notebook and get rid of the Office 365.
Now, the notebook doesn't have a dvd drive. Can I just load the DVD into my laptop and just say 'Copy' to a USB drive and then load the installation on to my notebook? Are there hidden files that won't be copied over?
What will happen to the existing 365 installation? Do I need to remove that first; my worry is that if I remove it and then the 2010 installation fails, I am left with no Office.

I am wondering how to install Office 2007 over Office XP.
Do I just install Office 2007? Should I uninstall Office XP first? after?
Will there be an impact on Outlook?

Just trying to avoid problems before I cause them.
Thank you.
 

Answer:Installing Office 2007 over Office XP

When you install Office 2007, it will find Office XP and ask if you want to replace it. If you say "no," it will install 2007 in a different directory, keeping both versions of Office with one exception. You cannot have more than one version of Outlook, so regardless of what you choose, Outlook will be replaced.

Windows 8.1.1 has OneDrive heavily integrated

Usually, when I install my Office 2013 Home & Business Edition, the stupid thing install everything by default without giving me the choice of what componens I want to install, so it installs its own OneDrive app as well which I then manually uninstall but it still keeps startup entries and registry entries which I can clearly see in my startup items using Autoruns

Now I have done a fresh install of Windows 8.1 and am afraid this would cause issues

what do you think / suggest?

Answer:What happens when I install Office with OneDrive?

Where did you acquire your office 2013? If I remember correctly if its not giving you an option to pick and chose what to install its because there is a configuration file added. An auto answer type of file. I used to know what it was called and where it was but I can't remember now. Our work copy was like that, it entered the company name, owners name, and product code automatically. The setup options were set too so you didn't get prompted to pick a custom install.

I have Office 2013 installed, I used the "run all from this PC" option when I installed it. I did the update 1 after that. I see "OneDrive for Business" listed on my Start Screen under Office 2013. Updsate must have changed it from SkyDrive to OneDrive. I don't use OneDrive other than to sync PC settings so that's about all I can tell you.

It's been a couple of days since Microsoft announced unlimited storage with 365 plans but I don't seem to have unlimited storage.
I know it's going to gradually roll out, that's not the point. I signed up to get it first from the link on their blog.
My storage has increased from 1TB to 10TB, so I'm assuming that's the unlimited offer. I guess I just wanted to know whether it'll go to 20TB when I exceed 10TB? Or does it say unlimited for you other folks?

Answer:Unlimited OneDrive with Office 365?

AFAIK it will be available in mass during 2015. Also, you can apply for early access here https://preview.onedrive.com/

I am trying to sync OneDrive for business to a computer through an Office 365 account.  The same procedure works on the same computer from a different Office 365 account, and the bad Office 365 account failed on another computer.  When I try to sync OneDrive I get the following dialog: "We couldn't sync this library, but will try again later." 
 
I tried clearing the cache from another procedure I found online but to no avail.  It seems to me that something in the account settings may be the culprit, but I can't figure out what.

Answer:Office 365 OneDrive for business won't sync

Sounds like the problem is specific to that one account, since it replicates on another computer. Make sure the username and password are correct, and that the URL for the library you are trying to sync is correct. Can you access that SharePoint library in a browser? Can you sync the library from a browser? Does the user have permissions to view that SharePoint site?
Also, if you go to the taskbar, does the OneDrive icon have a warning icon? Do you have the option to view sync problems when you right-click the icon? That will to to diagnose the problem and run some diagnostics.

Windows 8.1 already has OneDrive but when you install office 2013 it installs its own version of OneDrive with 4 startup entries related to OneDrive, I usually have always uninstalled the extra OneDrive and just used the one that comes with Windows. After uninstalling it and rebooting I the. Disabled the 4 startup entries of OneDrive which the newly installed OneDrive had added.

Now I have been getting an error upon every reboot or shutdown that's too fast for me to write down and I can't find it I. Event viewer so I'm worried maybe because I am uninstalling the one drive that came with Office that's causibg this issue or maybe I should just uninstall it but leave he startup entries alone? The reason I used to delete them because they say something like "OneDrive sync error" and stuff related to OneDrive so I was worried it may cause conflicts with the OS built in OneDrive.

How do you guys deal with this?

it does install another Microsoft OneDrive which I see under programs and features after office has been installed. Then if I launch Autoruns I see these 3 entries:

SkyDrivePro1 (ErrorConflict)
SkyDrivePro2 (SyncInProgress)
SkyDrivePro3 (InSync)
Microsoft SkyDrive Pro Browser Helper

These entries and OneDrive also get installed on my office 2013 home and business edition

If you install office 2013 pro then u get the option to deselect components that u don't want as opposed to the stupid office 2013 365 and home and business they install everuthing

I want to do a clean reinstall of my Windows 10 as I have done in the past. The bit that bugs me though is having to reinstall Office (and all the other apps), and then set up all the Outlook email addresses again.

I was wondering if it was possible to install Office 365 to Microsoft OneDrive so I didn't have to reinstall it after a clean Windows install.

Any help gratefully received.

Answer:Can I install Office 365 to Microsoft onedrive ?

The issue is not "where does Office live?" which is what your idea would address. The issue is "how does the OS acquire binary access to, and knowledge of Office?" (This includes all the files that have to be copied, settings and preferences established, licensing details seen to, registry entries made, and so forth, that occurs when installation happens.) That is why, alas, you will not be able to escape the tyranny of having to reinstall Office for each clean install you wish to use it in. That said, here's a thought: Why not set up a Virtual Machine in Hyper-V, install Office there, and then load and run that VM when you want to use Office? You can do what you want with the host OS without changing the VM any time you want, and retain ready access to Office through that VM.

First time post here, hope I follow all the rules.

Looking to acquire MS Office 2016 Professional. I have 4 computers, 3 tablets, 3 phones in the house. I have read different things about buying the software vs subscribing in terms of how many devices the software could be installed on. 2 computers use Windows 7, 1 uses Windows 8.1 and 1 uses Windows 10. Seeking advice/referrals on the best/most cost effective way to get MS Office on at least all the computers. All computers currently use MS Office 2007. Thanks.
 

Answer:Best way to get Office 2016

i would subscribe to put a standalone version of office on all those machines would be expensive

Assuming and average price of 120 for Office Home & Student
4 computers = 480 and does not include a tablet at that price

the subscription service at 80 per year and you can add to PCs and tablets upto 5 devices - so thats 6years to get a saving - And you are likely to change machines in that time

Also with the subscription you get the FULL version and all products (outlook, publisher - which would cost 250 )

unless you can find a multi-license version to run on 3 or more PCs
then the subscription maybe the way to go.

I have Office 2003 and tried downloading and running 2016. It did the download as expected and put icons down in the task bar. When I clicked on the Excel tab, it said it would activate it if I put in my email address and phone number. The alternative was to enter the Product Key. Everything acted, again, as if all was well and then it said it had stopped running and I should shut it down. Repeated tries gave me the same results. Trying any other component (Word, Powerpoint, etc.) also caused an immediate crash. FWIW, my first attempts to use it were to bring up previous files made in the 2003 version. This install was done through a web site and was part of a group offer. Any thoughts? Was I supposed to uninstall the 2003 version first? There weren't any instructions.
I uninstalled it for now.

Hey guys
I'm trying to download Office 2016 preview. When I go to the download links it redirects me to a page to sign in to a personal Microsoft account. As i understand it you need a corporate O365 subscription to get the preview, which I have access to through my school. I just can't get it to authenticate with O365 business/education instead of the personal MS account. I don't have a personal O365 subscription either.

Cheers

I noticed Dropbox (Free version) has the ability to go back to previous versions of any file. In OneDrive (Free version - not Business), you can go back to previous versions, but it seems to be limited to just Office documents. Is that the way it is or am I missing a setting to enable versioning for all my file types? If this doesn't exist for OD Free, does it exist in OD Business? Are there plans to implement this for OD Free?

I've set up a new Office 365 subscription on my desktop system. I'm gradually moving folders into the OneDrive folder. OneDrive seems to be having a serious negative effect on network bandwidth for the other computers and tablets on my home network. I'm on the 12 Mbps to 18 Mbps level of service with my provider. I'm moving a few gig at a time into the OneDrive folder and letting it sync before adding more. It seems like Dropbox and Google Drive sync faster than OneDrive but I haven't done any measured comparisons. Certainly we are seeing slower web site load times when OneDrive is syncing.
The big issue is that OneDrive doesn't have an on/off switch or a pause button on the sync process. You can change the settings to start OneDrive on Windows startup, and that's all. Microsoft needs to provide some controls. What are other people experiencing?

We recently purchased Office 365 at Best Buy when we got our new computer. We were told we would get 5 OneDrive accounts- and we could load each of the five on our tablets as well. My husband did the initial set up and put in the activation code - but I can't figure out how to add a separate one for me (and the kids are clamoring for the other three). I have the activation code - but I can't seem to find out where to enter it to sign up for additional accounts. Thanks for your help!

Hi cstull1217 Microsoft Office allows you to uninstall components separately. To do so, simply go in the Control Panel and uninstall Microsoft Office. It'll ask you if you want to uninstall Office, repair the installation, modify it, etc. Select the option to modify Office, and opt-out the ones you don't need before proceeding.https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Install-or-remove-individual-Office-2010-programs-and-components-aeb80df5-326c-4afc-8064-bd195f560753

There have been considerable compatibility isues with Office 2016 and Microsoft Exchange 2007, but I have no personal knowledge of any problems installing over Office 2007.
Your suggestion of backing up contact details (and emails, as you use Outlook) and then running a clean install of Office 2016 might just be the safest route in the circumstances. You can then import your contacts and emails.
