Preferred Solution: migrating from office 2003 to office 2010

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 recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!
I think Microsoft will be losing many many customers with this one.

Is anyone aware of any guides, books, online documentation, etc which can help users to migrate?? If not, I'm going to be sending off these cds to the Salvation Army.
 

Answer:Migrating from MS Office 2003 to Office 2007 = PAIN

Hi animorph,
Yes, the changes are extensive. But Microsoft does have helpful interactive guides that let you choose a function in 2003 and find it in 2007. I hope these help.

Outlook
Word
Excel
Access
PowerPoint

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.

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 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.

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?

Answer:Importing template files from Office 2003 to Office 2010

Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.

- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it

I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.

Cheers

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.

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?
 

Answer:Installing Office 2010 on a machine with Office 2003/2007

Hi, welcome to the forum,
I had a similar situation here but in the end I opted out.

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.

Even my 2003 and 2007 gave me issues after some time.

Have you checekd what the Microsoft Support site says?

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.
 
7. Curiously, if I navigate directly to the Office 2003 folder (called OFFICE 11) and double-click directly on the Winword.exe file, Word comes up immediately. It's only when I double-click on an actual file (or invoke Word 2003 from ... Read more

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.

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on a Dell Studio 17. It came with Office 2007 trial which was a bad experience.

I have a MS Basic Office 2003 license and want the best legal way to upgrade at minimum cost.

In the end I need a license for 2010.

1) via Dell
2) via MS
3) box store
4) on line store amazon ?
 

Answer:Going from MS Basic Office 2003 to MS Office 2010

I would say, BOX Store, and get only what you need. If Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Onenotes is fine, then get the Home and student. This comes with a license for three (3) machines, for less than $150.00 US.
But if you need Outlook, then you will have to get the Pro version or better.

All that is involved is the installation of the new version after uninstalling the old one. Once you have done that all of your documents will remain precisely where you left them and all will be readable by the new program.

Hi,


I need to have Office 2003 and Office 2010 installed on the same computer. They won't be running at the same time, but both will be used occassionally so both of them must be installed.

I read somewhere that this is not officially supported but possible.


What's the proper way of doing so? Do I install the Office 2003 first and then 2010?

Is there a way to prevent the setup from running each time I'm switching between the versions? It takes up a lot of time and I think it's unneccessarry.

I want to set Office 2003 as default and I want Office 2010 to start ONLY if I start it manually or I choose to open a file only supported by the new version (like docx etc)

far more problems with corrupted files in Office2010 than in Office2003
Further, when I send documents via email between computers I find that some .docx files arrive as .dat files. Does not ever happen when files are simply move across the network

I want to change from MS Office 97 Pro to MS Office 2003 Pro Upgrade. Should I uninstall 97 first, or will the 2003 Upgrade simply convert 97 to 2003?

When you start to load office 2003 it should give you the option to upgrade, if you go this route it will effectively over write office 97. (that's what I did moving from office 2000 to office 2007)Yes you will be able to open the access 97 file and then save as access 2003

Answer:Office 2003 or Office 2010

Is it a newish laptop? It sounds to me like you have a free trial version of Office 2010, which you may not have realised, and have also installed Office 2003. The free trial of 2010 has now run out, which is why it wants you to activate it (i.e. pay for it...) If you want to keep 2003 and lose 2010 - which I'm guessing you do - then you should be able to uninstall 2010 from add/remove programs.

Answer:Office 2010 or office 2003

If you Google for the comparison you will read several differing opinions. Lots of people did not like the new Ribbon style when they changed from 2003, it is a personal choice thing. Most say that recalculation in Excel 2010 is faster than in Excel 2003 and they like Powerpoint integration better. Spreadsheets made in 2003 can be read in 2010 but not necessarily vice versa.
Personally I am pleased with the changes, but if you have the space available on your laptop there is no reason why you cannot have both on it. Get used to the differences and then make up your mind later which you prefer.
I presume that the version of Office 2010 that was installed was a legal one and that it has been activated correctly. It would not be good to choose 2010, delete 2003 and then find 2010 will not update etc.

Question: Office 2010 + 2003

Hi, currently installed on my machine is Office 2010. I want install Access 2003 because I'm going to be doing a course which requires 2003. 2010 is not backward compatible to 2003!

Now I've done a duel install on my Toshiba Satellite (32bit) and they seem to have cozied up together very well. However on my main machine (64bit system) as soon as I put the 2010 Office on it seemed to have kick 2003 three out of bed
I'm assuming it’s a dust up between the 32bt system and the 64bit??????
I could do the course on the lappy but I prefer 32inch screen to 17 any day!

Access 2003 is not installed at the moment but I'm thinking should I install it to another directory "Programme Files" for win 7U or X86?
But on checking out dir's it seems that "office12/14 are in Prog files and there is "office 12" in X86 not sure if that is left over bits from when 2003 was previously Installed.

How do I get both to work on my 64bit system like they do on my 32bit system?????

Thank you for reading

Answer:Office 2010 + 2003

This is what you need, I guess.

As to our other question, uninstalling Office rarely removes the corresponding Office12 (or whatever version number) folder from ProgramFiles, so I guess that's where it's coming from.

Which version is your Office 2010? If 32 bit, then the fact that your OS is 54 bit would make no difference.

Answer:office 2003 or 2010

Either is fine, but a lot changed between 2003 and 2007 so if you're not familiar with 2010 there's a learning curve to it. I generally think that going with the more recent version is better because it keeps you up to date with the current technology. You don't use it professionally now, but someday you might, and it would be good to already know it. Just my two cents.

Hi,

Is it possible to have both Office 2003 and 2010 installed on the same computer? (I have licenses for both of them. Some family members prefer the old one, some prefer the new one. That's why.)

If so what are the exact steps to do it? I tried it but 2003 didn't open anymore (it showed error messages)
Also I read updates are not going to work anymore if I do this. Are there any more updates being released for the 2003 edition?
The computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 so it's an x86-only Office (I know it's not possible to mix x86-x64 Office versions but it lets me install 2010 without upgrading the older one)

Also I want to set and keep the older Office as the default handler for all filetypes it supports. How do I do that? 2010 is keep overriding it.

I?ve had the 2010 version of Microsoft Office loaded on my PC for some time but haven?t really found the ?ribbon? feature particularly user friendly, especially for Word. Consequently I also loaded my old version of Word 2003 from Office 2003 onto the machine only to find that after using Word 2003 and going back to Word 2010 (which seems to be selected as the default) I get a screen saying-Configuration ProcessConfiguring Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010.This message remain on the screen for approx. 1 minutes. Is there any way of-? Stopping this screen appearing? Making the 2003 version of Word the default?Thanks.

Answer:Running Word 2003 and Office 2010 on the same PC

Microsoft's recommendation is that you don't install different versions of Office in the same PC. Do you have the original installation disk for Office 2010 from which you might be able to run a repair installation and remove Word 2010?

My company recently installed Windows 7 and Office 2010. Every time I try to open a excel file, via a link on our Intranet it asks for credentials.

I ruled out IE, firewall, and the document. I narrowed it down to something in Excel except i can't find it. Its like a security setting.

I was able to open the file when I had Office XP installed but as soon as i installed Office 2010 it won't work.

I've gone into the Trust Center and change settings but nothing seems to help. A pervious answer was given (http://www.sevenforums.com/microsoft...cs-2010-a.html) but it didn't work.

Please can you make it clearer what you want to do.
Is it your office 2003 personal documents and files that you now want to put on your new W8 pc that has office 2010?
If so then just copy them onto an external harddrive, or burn them to dvd, or put on usb flash drive and then plug that into your W8 machine and copy them to your Documents folder and Office 2010 will open them.

Since support is about to end for 2003 version, I think that it may be time to change. If I go to either 2007 or 2010 version, I think that I understand that "opening and reading" an "XLS" file will not be any problem since you can use the
Compatibility Pack". I am not so sure about the templates ( XLT ) files. Will I be able to continue those files, because I use them on a daily basis. Will an XLT file open and be able to be used in either 2007 or 2010 ?

Answer:Changing from Office 2003 to either 2007 or 2010

XLS files can still be opened. Supposedly it is possible that some things might appear a little different when opening them with newer versions, but I've never found this to be true. And while I can't tell you for sure, I'm 98% sure XLT files will open just fine too. Basically you can open old format files in newer versions of Office, but you can't open newer format files with older Office versions.

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!

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

can i install excell 2003 alongside office 2010 ?
i need word/outlook/access/onenote/ in 2010 format . whereas excel in 2003.

what are its implications?

Answer:install excell 2003 alongside office 2010

Are you aware that Microsoft will no longer support Office 2003 after April 8, 2014. So you will lose support & updates on Excel 2003, which could make it very vulnerable to virus attacks etc..

Is the wk4 file format used in saving Lotus 123 spreadsheets?. With the above in mind is there any way, you can change over to the fully Excel system, as it would seem you are getting forced into a corner & have to eventually change over.

Whether Excel 2003 will work alongside Office 2010 is something I don't know.

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.

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...

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.

i use a dell restore cd for windows 7 professional, on a dell pc obviously, to install win7 from scratch.
I can do windows updates no problem.
I have microsoft office 2010 professional plus with a valid license key, these are provided by my IT dept.
Office installs fine, during the install i can go through the options and install excel, powerpoint, all shared tools, and so on. Once installed, it works fine. There is no service pack installed at this point.

From here if I go windows update, I never see anything for office.
From within office, Microsoft Word file menu help for example, it shows office is activated and if i click on check for updates there it then opens an IE window which says updates can be done from start menu - programs - windows update.

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:

I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.

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!)

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.

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.

My MS Office files have generic icons, and when I open them, Windows asks me which program to use. Office 2010 isn't even on the list. A trial version of Office 2007 came with my laptop.

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

Thanks!

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

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

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

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

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

Cheers

I don't want to lose all my information that is currently in word format.
Do I install Libreoffice first then use add remove to remove MS to switch and keep my files?
I do not know how to make the transition and not lose my data in my desktop and also two flash drives.
Thank you

Answer:replace MS office Home and Student 2010 with Libre office

Don't worry about it, just install LibreOffice and if prompted choose to Associate the Office/Word/Excel files with LO. Or in Control Panel or Settings locate Default Programs and re-associate as desired. Both suites can reside on the computer, at least that's the way I do it.

I am running a copy of Office 2007 Ultimate that I got through an academic program. I need to install a key for Office 2010 on a new system. The cost for the key only is about $20 less than a 3 license traditional disk version, so I am considering upgrading every system.

However, I don't want to lose MS Access or MS Publisher to upgrade.

If I install Office 2010 Home & Student over Office 2007 Ultimate, will the extra programs from Office 2007 still be available to me? I know they will not be upgraded, but having a few different versions floating around doesn't bother me.

Answer:Office 2007 Ultimate to Office 2010 Home & Student

No... those two programs are not available in the student version...

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,

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.

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.

Answer:Open office 2010 PPT files with Office 2007

2010 doesn't have different file extensions from 2007. docx, xlsx, pptx, accdb. You should be able to open those files in 2007 without issue.Also, it's not really the best idea to have two different versions of Office installed. They can conflict, especially when it comes to macros and equations.

My laptop came preinstalled with the 2007 compatibility pack. I installed Office 2010 the day I bought the laptop. Have been running for many months and never noticed this: the default application to open docx files in the Microsoft Open XML Converter. The default for doc files is Microsoft Word. The only version of Word I have on my computer is 2010. If I remember correctly, the laptop came with a 2007 trial version but I deleted that - I still have a link to "reinstall MS Office trial." Whenever I click on a docx file, it opens in Word. I'm running Win 7 64-bit Home Premium but the 32-bit version of Office 2010.

Here's the strange part: if I set Word as the default application for opening docx files, I lose the Word icon and get what I believe is the Wordpad icon (the standard sheet of paper with corner turned over and lines on it) as my icon for docx files. The registry tells me that the defaulticon for docx files is Wordpad.exe. The icon for doc files is still the Word icon. Same thing happens if I uninstall the compatibility pack, which of course I don't even need, and then I also lose my Excel icon and am "iconless" for Excel files. If I try to set the default icon in the registry to the Word icon, I get a tiny Word icon in lieu of the normal Word icon.

I discovered all this by following this advice for being able to open Word docs stored on Microsoft's Skydrive:

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.

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.

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.

Thank you for any help you can give! I've been trying to figure this out on my own for some time, and know you guys are pretty good--you helped me out awhile back!

What do you think you would "lose" by uninstalling software you don't want? Just uninstall Office 2010, and install Office 2007.

Run your normal backup processes before making any system changes.
