Preferred Solution: Is there a pdf add on for office 2010 to edit pdf documents ?

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.)

I've experienced this problem twice in the past week. Here is my current problem:

New Windows 8 computer
Moved Office 2010 install from old computer to new computer
Copied all documents to new computer by installing the old drive in the new computer (NTFS to NTFS)

When trying to open any DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, or PPTX files that are stored in the Documents folder I get permission errors. Word will open an RTF file just fine. If I try to use any Office programs to save a file to the Documents folder, I also get permission errors. I can move the file to the Desktop and work with it just fine. I can then move it back to the Documents folder.

Here are the errors when trying to open files:
Word - Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges
Excel - 'C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Book1.xlsx' could not be found
Powerpoint - The path or file name for C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Presentation1.pptx is invalid.

When I try to use one of these programs to save to the Documents folder, I get the following error:
You don't have permission to save in this location.

I tried copying the files two different ways to eliminate any lingering NTFS permissions. I used a linux box to copy from the old drive to EXT4, then to a linux formatted FAT drive. I plugged this FAT drive into the Windows machine and moved the files over but got the same errors. Next, I copied the files from the old drive to a FAT32 drive using another Windows box.

I'm running Windows 7 on my new computer, which came with a trial version of Office 2010. Rather than buy the full version when the trial expired, I installed the Office 2003 I had on my old -- now dead -- computer. I now find that I can't open the Word and Excel files I created with the 2010 version. Is there a 'cloud' site where I could send the 2010 files and have them returned to me as standard .xls and .doc files? Or is there a free converter available for download?

Hi, has anyone ever had any similar problem like this?
So I'm a heavy OneDrive user, and I always store my writings in it so I can switch between my windows 8 devices (desktop& laptop) in ease.
But what I'm wondering is why can't I edit them in my Windows phone 8 version of the office mobile? It always says: Unsupported content and such. I would really love it that i could just go anywhere without bringing my laptop l, knowing that I could edit them in my phone.

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

Answer:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.

Hi Guys long time reader, first time poster.

This is a on and off thing, but when we open a document on a users personal drive (which nobody else has access too), it opens as read only and they cant make changes/save the file.

Selecting "notify" when the document is ready to be edited doesnt respond.
Document has no read-only attribute, nor does the folder level they have full access to it.
This particular user is connected via wireless but the issue occurs on desktops aswell.
We have tried restarting the computer and ending the process.
Also closed the document via server but she still receives read only error.

The weird thing is, if the document is closed and opened 2-3 times on the 2nd or 3rd time it will be in editing mode.

I have searched the net and can't seem to find that much any suggestions/help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Office 2010 Read only when opening documents

I would experiment and try this:

Test it on one or two files first and do not try to takeover an entire drive or any system folders.

Hello all,

I have Office 2010 installed. I often print an online news article to the xps format. Sometimes I have the need to convert this format to Word.


The question is how do I make the conversion without using a free software. It is preferable to use a software that would retain the original format of the article.


Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to help me find such a software.


Thank you.

Answer:How to convert MS xps documents to Word in Office 2010?

Try to convert XPS to a DOC* format is a complicated OCR task, same as trying to take a picture of an old newspaper and then trying to scan and make it editable in Word.

You need something like ABBYY FineReader 11 Professional Edition
It keeps original formatting as much as possible.

This only happens on 2 computers, the rest are all fine.

When a user creates a new Microsoft Office document and save it, it takes 30+ seconds to save.
Once the file is created, they can open and edit it and save with no issues, it is just when a new document is created and saved.

The 2 computers it is happening on are Windows 7 pro. The server is 2008 R2. It is a small domain with 10-15 computers. Everything is less than a year old, cabling, switches, sever, computers.
One computer that has this problem was ghosted from the same image as 5 other laptops and none of them have the same issue.
They are running Microsoft Security Essentials.

I use MS Office 2010 Word to write and save documents - but recently they are being saved as "OpenDocument Text" - and while I can open these documents using MS Word, some of the recipients cannot do so! I understand that "OpenDocument Text" refers to the free Open Office suite, which I do not have installed.

I have a new computer running Windows 7 Home Premium and Office Pro 2010. Whenever I click on a hyperlink in an open Word or Excel document (or any Office document, I think) that links to a password-protected website, the log-in dialogue from Internet Explorer opens up, even though my default browser (FireFox) is already open, and I am already logged in to the password-protected site. This only happens with links to password-protected pages - others open normally in FireFox.

I have been through my default program settings and file association settings, and manually changed everything I recognize as internet-related to open in FireFox, but it's still happening. The site I can't open is a private WordPress site, so the log-in page is a php file. I tried creating a .php file association, but that didn't solve the problem. The password protection is via an htaccess file, but I don't know enough about that to speculate whether that's relevant (everything starting with http is supposed to be opening in FireFox, according to my settings).

I am in and out of that website all the time, so this is really irritating. I don't want two browsers open, and I don't want to use Internet Explorer, but I can't uninstall it, as I do need to use it to check websites I'm building from time to time. I'd be very grateful for any solutions anyone has to offer.

Thank you!

I don't know if maybe I'm the only one who runs into this problem or if it happens to a lot of people, but it seems to come up a lot for me.

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.

I start up Windows Updates today and it has me downloading 3 updates for Windows 2010. This computer had Office 2010 on it before it was reformatted. Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it? Does Office 2007 use updates that are also made for 2010(and are only labled 2010)? Anyone have any ideas? I don't believe it's hurting anything, but I am curious!

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.

In what way was it rubbish? Most scan applications have functions to alter brightness, contrast, clour, and even tones, and dots-per-inch/cm.Your PC should have a 'Scan Manager' application - they're pretty standard these days - and this should help you through the process.

I have my Desktop in my den, where I do all my book keeping etc. And where I do all my research information for my hobbys. And plan my next moves..........

But out in my work shop I used my laptop quite regularly. And use the information I have gathered on my desktop. Though if I see anything that needs to be altered. The only way that can be done "currently" is by writing it down and changing the information later.
 

Answer:Edit Documents Via Home Network

You can if you have Office installed on both computers. It isn't possible to share programs over the network. You may be able to use OpenOffice to edit them on the other computer depending on the version of Office used to create them and the format they're saved in as well as the complexity of the files.

I had a problem with Outlook emails hanging up in the outbox and then sending as many as 14 copies of the same message. I was unable to fix this Using the "Repair" function of the upgrade installation disk (created from the downloaded file). I removed Office completely and tried to reload; however, my disk got corrupted and Outlook is no longer available. Is there a way to recover Outlook without having to purchase it separately? I am using Office Professional Plus 2010 Home Use Program. The email that came with the original download from Digital River states to go to the "Account Management Console" to reload; however, this is on a hard copy and the original email with the link is no longer available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2010 missing from Office Professional Plus 2010

If you downloaded this from Digital River, then you may be able to download it again, contact them and ask.

If you can download the install file again and it works, burn yourself a CD of the downloaded install file.

Also write the keycode on the CD.

My beta expired so I uninstalled the beta. I restarted and tried to install the trial but I get this error.

Error 25004. The product key you entered cannot be used on this machine. This is most likely due to previous Office 2010 trials being installed. (System error: -1073418160)

Can this be done?

A week ago, I bought a new CD of MS Office Home and Student 2010. Before I did that, I asked my wife, who has occasionally used Access 2003, "do you still need a database program?". I SWEAR she said "no I don't use it any more". The FIRST time she sat down to use MS Office 2010 she asked me "where's the database program?" aarrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh....

So is it possible for me to buy a way to upgrade the version I have now, or must I buy a completely new stand alone CD for just Access 2010?
 

Answer:Adding MS Access 2010 to my MS Office Home and Student 2010

I have NOT seen any upgrade to a higher package.

I think the only way is to buy the stand alone package.

Now that you know, you will be buying the Pro version when you upgrade to 2013!

Hi my desk top came with MS Office Starter 2010. I want to load the Office Home Student to the PC.
Will Starter remain or be over written.
Would it be best to delete Starter 2010 before loading Home Student.
I have been unable to find a answer on Google to give a straight answer.
Is there any way of testing the office 2010 soft ware prior to loading or after loading to see if its genuine.
I paid top price but its just that I would like to make sure and do some thing about it if not.

Answer:Replacing Office Starter 2010, with Student Home 2010

Don't user it myself, but ....
Starter will probably be over-written, in any case what does it matter, you can always delete Starter after installing Student if necessary - I am sure that the Software itself will tell you during Installation.

Hi all
Having totally WIPED office 2010 from my system and re-installed again the problem I had with the "Purge" folder not appearing now is SOLVED.

However you still don't get a line through the deleted items -- but they are in Trash folder now.

This is BETTER but still NOT WHAT IS NEEDED -- as another computer with Outlook 2007 doesn't get the "Non purged" items in the inbox which it should do.

IMAP should effectively leave items in the Inbox until purged -- otherwise I might as well go back to POP3 - more fiddly to manage whern you leave stuff on the server but it works.

What I'm resigned to doing now is to use the REST of the office 2010 suite (EXCEL etc) which is really good but stick with Outlook 2007 for email.

Cheers

New box came with Office 2010....Outlook 2010 is a bit of a shock with little time to learn all over how I do things daily all day long to get my job done.

Figured out most of it but one issue is causing lots of grief for what used to be a very simple thing to do.

When I type in an email address which I do a lot for email support (They are not in the GAL) and mistype it, I can't seem to find out how to edit it after Outlook fixes it.

In Outlook 2003, I could just double click on the address and a box would pop up to let me change what I needed. Can't seem to find anything that lets me do that in
2010.

Double click gives me nothing now. Right click gives me options that don't help. I've tried single click, looked for an option to edit... can't find any way of doing this other than retyping the address is not a good solution as many times it is a very complicated email address to type in the first place.

So the question is:

How do you edit an email address on any of the To: Cc: and Bcc: lines?

Example attached (I hope) shows an email address that I entered using example.com... In this case, i want to change it to example.net without having to retype the whole address again.
Box is a Win7 Pro box if that matters.

Answer:Outlook 2010 - How to Edit To Address

When the cursor is in the position shown in your illustration, just press the backspace key and type in the correct address.

If it is one of your contacts, you need to do a permanent 'fix' in the Contact file by pressing backspace in the same position.

I sent an email to myself, with Word documents as attachments, and those documents are totally in edit mode. They show the blinking curser and other things that should not be there . How do I stop this; I want the attachments to be recieved as though I copied them and put them in the mail, same format and everything without the ability to edit. Also, when I send a carefully formatted and edited for length, three page Word document attachment from Yahoo Mail to my Gmail account, it becomes four pages and looks different. How can this problem be solved? I need to be sure these documents look exactly like they were when I sent them.
 

Answer:Solved: Want emailed documents to be same length and format - not in edit mode.

Have you considered saving the MS-Word documents as Adobe Acrobat PDF files? If you don't wish to purchase a full version of Adobe Acrobat, you can use a free converter like PrimoPDF. You can then set password protected settings that do not allow editing.

You can also check into the document security features in your particular version of MS-Word. I am still using MS-Word 2003 and here is the information for that version:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/w...orized-changes-HP001044674.aspx#_Toc280362682.

I believe that the PDF creation software allows you to embed fonts used in your document into the PDF file. This will ensure your pages will look the same on any computer. Not sure if MS-Word allows doing that in a .DOC file.

Hi all. I hope i'm on a correct thread as this is for IdeaPad S serier netbook. Currently on Windows 7 Starter (netbook) that comes preloaded with MS Office Starter 2010. I do have a genuine MS Office 2003 which previous comes with my PC i bought many years ago. I'm wondering can i install it on top of the current MS Office Starter 2010 OR do i need to uninstall the preloaded MS Office Starter 2010 first? What if i would need the MS Office Starter 2010 again next time? I dare not to do it because i worry i will crash all the MS Office apps... Any idea? Thank you... 

Answer:Can install lower version of MS Office ontop of the preloaded MS Office Starter 2010?

Relating to the old version.  Do you have an Office cd or is it a part of a restore cd?  If the former you might be in luck, if the latter, probably not. Secondly, you may or may not be able to do what you want.  I would uninstall the starter first then install the older.  Even this you may be in for a problem.  I did a beta of 2010, then installed an older version and it took MS two days over the phone to get things straightened out and they did that by having me restore windows and that only worked for a few months.  in the process of this mess I found dozens of forums filled with people with the same problem I was having. For some reason the first newer install leaves something in the registry that - even though the older one installs right - makes the system think it needs to reinstall one of them and it will go through a long process of configuring etc. As to whether you can reinstall the 2010, again you would have to have a separate cd to do so unless you wanted to restore your entire drive and lose all yoiur stuff plus the older office. Others, my wife included on her computer, have had no problem going from one version to the other. One other fact.  If youi have an older version and install a 2010 version they can install as separate installs and work together or on ours it gave us the option of uninstalling the older portions of office that came on the new office.  (Wife had office pro older version, in...

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Okay, I've never posted on anything like this before so bear with me please. I've got an issue and it's driving me nuts because I can't resolve it. I'll try and give a description of what I did. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I purchased a new Dell computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) that came with a trial version of Office 2010. I had previously purchased an Office 2010 Pro so I wanted to install the full version on my computer. When I did, I had both versions installed, so I uninstalled the trial version. That's when I think my problem arose, but I can't say for sure that it didn't exist before that because I hadn't even looked.

Here's the problem:
When I'm in Windows Explorer looking at my files, my Excel and Word files (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx) show up with an improper file type description. Instead of saying "Microsoft Word Document" or "Microsoft Excel 1997-2003 Worksheet" (or whatever they're supposed to say) the simply say "DOCX File" or "XLS File". Not only that, but the icons don't look right either. They sort of look right, but they're smaller and sort of greyed out (Except the .docx icon is just a white page with lines object).

The strange thing is, is that ALL my other Office files show up with correct descriptions and icons etc. (.ppt, .pptx, .csv....etc - ALL of them!)

i remember with windows xp and office, you could go to a different part of the microsoft windows update website in Internet Explorer, and it would prompt you with ActiveX to allow updates for Office, and after you did that then when you went to the normal windows (xp) update site there would be a whole other section of updates for microsoft office available. That was with office 2007 anyway.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

Answer:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Hi all,

I ran into an interesting dilemma today and I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this. I bought a copy of MS Office 2010 Professional at a local computer show. I installed it, entered the product key, re-booted, and opened MS Outlook and it said I still needed to activate my software. I choose the Online Activation option and it said my product key was not valid. I looked in my list of programs and I noticed that the software had installed as MS Office 2010 Professional PLUS.

I'm guessing this is the reason my product key was invalid. Could I have been sold a volume license key? Or could it even have been a packaging error? I'm going to try and download MS Office 2010 Professional from Microsoft's website and try my product key again to see what happens. In the meantime, I'd really love to hear everyone's thoughts on this and if anyone has run into a similar issue.

Thanks!

I should also mention: the package was sealed and, to the best of my knowledge, it appeared to be an authentic Microsoft CD.

When I tried downloading a copy of MS Office from Microsoft's site it said the product key was blocked.

I did a reinstall and ran into the same problem. When I run the activation wizard it says my key is not valid. But when I first install the program I enter the product key and it says valid. =/

When I first got my computer (Windows 7 Home Premium SP1), it had a preinstalled trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. I removed it via the control panel (Programs and Features) and installed Office 2010. However, I still get Office 2007 updates via Windows Update. They even installed successfully.
There are no Office 2007 components listed under Programs and Features.

Why am I getting Office 2007 updates although I've got only Office 2010?...

Answer:receiving Office 2007 updates but have got Office 2010 installed

This should help:
How do I uninstall the 2007 Office suites if I cannot uninstall it by using the "Add or Remove Programs" feature?

I have Office 2010 Standard Open License Version installed on 7 XP Pro machines. We discovered, when trying to open a .tif file, that Document Imaging has been removed from Office 2010. I found and followed instructions in KB982760 from the MS web site. I got lots of parts of Office 2007, including Word, but still no Document Imaging. I tried going through Add/Remove Programs to add the feature; still no luck. Has anyone been successful getting Document Imaging from a previous version of Office to run under 2010?

Thanks,
adaniel

Answer:Installing Office 2010 on a PC that is running Windows 7 and Office 2003

Hi fred93 The documents you created with Office programs aren't related to it. You can simply uninstall Microsoft Office 2003, and install Office 2010 and you'll be able to use them again. Simple as that.

I did an upgrade installation from Office 2003 PRO to Office 2010 PRO. I had several issues with Access denied on C:\Config.msi. I usually select retry and all is well. I think I may have missed one of the retries before I did the system restart.
Now I get an error 2203 whenever I reboot, and the Office 2003 installer keeps popping up anytime I try to do anything.
I tried uninstalling Office 2003 and was told that I had a corrupted install. I tried re-installing it and it seems to just hang.
I also tried to uninstall and repair Office 2010.

I'm at a loss at this point.

Are you running Windows in your VMWare installation or is your WMWare installation on your Windows machine?

It sounds like (drivers aside) there were some shared filed that may have been wiped that VMWare was using that belonged to Office 2010.

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 . !!

Can I reply to a email message by right clicking w/o other actions? In other words, I'd like to right click only once and start typing my reply.

Answer:Outlook 2010 / Can I edit right click menu

I suspect this is not possible without some programming effort (VB or C#).

You can customize the context menu, but this involves adding, moving and changing actions of options on the context menu. I am not aware of a way to replace the context menu completely with a single action of "reply to email".

I think this could open up the possibility of other problems/risks if you do this.

If you want a one click solution, if the email is opened simply click reply. If you are looking at the list of emails, select the one you want and click reply.

I am trying to edit audio files on PowerPoint 2010. I have added some music files. When I select the play icon and try to edit the file these tools are greyed out. I cannot use them at all. The reason is possibly because I do not have an upgraded version of PowerPoint.

After searching Microsoft I found information which states some versions won't work because I need to install Desktop Experience. I tried to follow the instructions but I cannot find the installation feature. The instructions do not seem to work.

Should I try another way, if so, what is recommended? Sure this must be a very common problem when Powerpoint is bundled in MS Works because they just stick a basic version in.

Thanks for any tips anyway!

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.

Hi, all. I hope you can help me.
 
1. I was previously working on a 32-bit Compaq computer that ran Windows XP, and I used Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 for my work.
 
2. I bought a new computer, a 64-bit Dell running Windows 7 Professional, which came equipped with Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010.
 
3. Because I prefer the MS Word program on Office 2003 to 2010, I installed that on my new computer with the proper keycode. (During setup, I chose only to install the old Word 2003 -- not the old Outlook, Excel or Powerpoint programs.)
 
4. Installation was successful. The Office 2010 files reside in the Programs directory; the Office 2003 files reside in the Programs (x86) directory.
 
5. I then instructed Windows 7 to open .doc and .docx files with the 2003 Office Word program.
 
6. The problem is: Whenever I choose Word 2003 from the Program menu (or click on an actual doc file), I receive the msinstall message, "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Standard Edition" for about ten seconds. Then Word 2003 opens. I checked the Windows Event Viewer, which indicates that during this hang, either Word 2003 or Word 2010 is apparently looking for components it can't find.

Answer:PLEASE HELP RESOLVE OFFICE 2003 AND OFFICE 2010 CONFLICT

 When you switch between an Office 2010 program and an older Office program, it goes through that configuring process.  I read somewhere that this is because each version of Office has entries in the registry with the same names but are set differently so it has to go through this little gooney bird dance.  If it's the ribbons (and lack of the menu bar) you don't like in Office 2010, there's a neat little program called Ubitmenu you can download and install that gives you an old style menu bar with most of the Office 2003 features on it.
 
Good luck.

New PC has Windows 7 and the Starter version of Office 2010. Don't like it, don't like the "bullying" they use to get you to buy something that should come with the PC. Have downloaded Office 2007, but having difficulty dealing with different versions of docs. Converting them to 2007 is tedious. I'd like to scrap 2010, but don't want to lose anything.

I read previous thread about this. It said to be sure I had Service Pack 2 or 3 (both?) for Office 2007. I have Service Pack 1 for Windows 7, but cannot find any other service packs. How do I find them? Should I download a pack--which one and how?

I'm a university instructor and it would save me a great deal of time if I didn't have to monkey around with all the different versions of Word.

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.
