Preferred Solution: MS Office 2013 wont install after remove all old MS Office files.

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 am having similar issues to the posts on here and notice even my Windows Movie Maker is affected by the crash.
I have had to revert to One Note to get info out of saved documents.
I am away from my home where my key is and so a re-install is not gonna happen.
I need an answer as Office is installed and wont start with the message "Microsoft bla,bla,bla has stopped working"
I need access to my emails and other things - all have stopped working.
I dont have Abbey Finereader - at least its not in the programs list as far as I can see.
All applications open in safe mode but Word wont give up a page to type.
I have clicked on the repair option in Programs but that doesnt work online or other.
I have disabled all add ins to all apps but still the same problem.
Are there any other solutions to be suggested?

Hello,

A charity is considering upgrading its workstations to Office 2013 from Office 2007.
They have lots of files in the .docx, .xlsx, .xlsm, and .xltm formats that they would need to access on a daily basis.

- Would the upgrade cause compatability problems with working with files created under these above formats?

Answer:Considering upgrade to Office 2013 - potential problems with Office 2007 files?

To my knowledge, they should not have any issues.

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

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

Hey,

I have a problem with my laptop when trying to re-install Office 2013 preview edition - basically the initial install failed for some reason and can I can neither remove or install this software leaving me in some sort of Microsoft limbo.

Someone I know suggested logging onto the "my account" section of the Microsoft site and actually deactivating the install however that has not solved the problem?

CCleaner has also been run to try and remove any redundant registry entries however again that has not solved my problem.

My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 (Official)

Thanks

Answer:office 2013 install failed now cant re-install or remove

Couple of things you can try. Revo Uninstaller Pro has a free 30 day trial. The forced uninstall option should remove the Office 2013 including left over registry entries.

Or you could try the Microsoft Fix It. If that doesn't work there are also instructions for manual removal.

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.

Is there a way to remove a word from the built-in spell checker dictionary in MS-Office 2013? The operating system is Windows 8.1 Pro.

I came across a mention of an MS-Office Exclusion Dictionary in a 2008 post in an MS Developer forum here:

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/na...emove-a-word-from-offices-speller-dictionary/

I could not find any information if this or something similar exists for MS-Office 2013.

My goal is for the word inhibiter to be tagged as a possible mis-spelling of inhibitor when running a spell check. A co-worker usually refers to various inhibitor chemicals in their emails to customers and considers using inhibiter in that context as sounding unprofessional. Currently, both spellings are considered acceptable when running a spell check.

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.

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 . !!

Hi

OS: Windows 8.1
Office Version: Professional Plus 2013

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

Here are few images showing what I mean:





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

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

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

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

Answer:Office 2013 will not install

Hi there
1) ensure any old / previous Office version is uninstalled - including any Demo / invasionware type of product.
2) Copy the contents of the DVD to disk - keep folders in same order
3) go to the relevant x86 / x64 folder (depending on whether you want to install the 32 or 64 bit version).
4) run the setup EXE file.

Step 2) might appear unnecessary but I've found in the past sometimes copying to HDD before install works whereas installing from DVD sometimes fails. Don't ask me why - I've had this with perfectly good DVD's and nothing wrong with the DVD writer either.

Office 2013 Home and Business, both retail and OEM give you a freaking envelope with a code inside. You need to make a microsoft account and have them stream the installer.

Here's the issues I have with this.

A. They max the limit at FIVE computers per account
B. Install takes WAY longer than it did with a disk and often crashes requiring a complete forced uninstall.
C. I can't tell which license is which on the my accounts page without jumping through hoops to see the fricken product number.
D. Microsoft charges MORE for a volume license agreement to avoid this shit.
E. When I burn a disk, it asks for a key, but still makes me create an account

I just want an MSI, or the built in installer that comes on randomly new Dell laptops (they mostly come with 2010 preinstalled) where I can ENTER THE KEY AND INSTALL THE DAMN SOFTWARE I PAID FOR!

How do you guys handle this? Between Windows 8, all this licensing bullshit, and the Xbox One, Microsoft has really become anti-business and anti-consumer. They have made a shit-ton of bad decisions and I really hope it catches up to them quickly.
 

Answer:Office 2013 Install

On the dells I get, you can find the installation folder in something like programdata\Office15\x86\15.0.4420.1017\office\data (it might be a few more folders in under programdata, I don't have one accesible at the moment, they all get wiped for a new 3rd party SSD)

In there are a bunch of various executables, for home & biz it would be: setuphomebusinessretail.x86.en-us.exe

When you run that, it should give you the option to either sign in to verify, or enter a key code from the card. I've never had to setup an account or stream the install, the full package is there.

Hi there,
 
On Thursday (12th Sept) I restarted my computer (windows 8) to let windows updates take effect. I then went to open a word document and it read that it couldn't be opened because "there was a problem with its contents". Under details it said "the file was corrupt and cannot be opened". When you click ok, it asks if you want to try to recover the file. I clicked yes but again there was a problem with the contents and the details said that "some parts were missing or invalid". I then tried to open other word documents and excel files and all with the same problem. I've also noticed in the preview pane, it is missing certain properties like how many pages there are.
 
I've tried:
Repairing office
Uninstalling it and installing a 2007 version
Repairing the file 
Opening it on another computer
Uninstalling the windows updates
Using salvage software
Scanning for viruses
System restore (the restore point was corrupted for some reason and it didn't work)
For a brief period, all my files were able to be opened again so I do have recent backups, but the issue is that it keeps corrupting any documents I upload and save after the computer is turned off/restarted.
However, I did start a new document and that is still yet to be corrupted even when other files uploaded after that was made have become corrupted.
 
Any ideas? Is this just an update that messed with my program?

Answer:MS office 2013 corrupting files

You say you tried system restore and the restore point was corrupted? Did you get any error codes or error messages with that? That suggests your registry or certain system files may be corrupt. The fact that the office files are corrupt and can't be fixed, and that it happened after you installed new updates, seems to back that up.
In short, this may be symptomatic of larger issues on your system. You may want to run sfc/scannow from the command prompt.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Upgrading from Office 2010 to office 2013 question

Oh also, i remember i got in program and features Office 2010 and office 2013, once i knew all was well i uninstalled office 2010, but then again i do not use outlook but for only one exchange account, and everything went fine with uninstalling office 2010, i am hoping from the answer you give me above, this would be the case here to?

You may be aware the Microsoft has declared the various Office 2013 and Office 365 pricing and subscriptions. If you you wish to Try Office 2013 or Office 356 before buying it - you can do that too!
You can try Office 365 Home Premium for one month or Office Professional Plus 2013 for 2 months.

I don't think you can upgrade with a trial version. You need to uninstall Office 2010, then install the trial.

OK, so the company I work for finally provided a MAK installation disk and license key for Office 2013 for me to install on a bunch of computers.

I've copied the entire contents of the CD up to a network share so I can do multiple installations at once, which saves me a lot of time.

The problem now is that I have to click through each of the steps during installation, the license agreement, the "install now", etc... Then I have to go back after the install is complete, and open Word or another app, go to Account, then change the product key to the one that I was given, which will make the copy of office activated.

I've checked online and found that I can create an MSP file that includes the correct product key through the Office Config Tool (OCT), which I have done, but whenever I run the MSP file, it tells me that there is no copy of office to "upgrade". I've been able to just run the setup.exe and it runs with no problems, on a new machine, so there's nothing for it to upgrade anyway.

Now, if I install office on one of the machines, and then run the MSP file, it works fine, but there's no reason to do this if Office is already installed.

How can I make the MSP file work without a previously installed copy of Office on the computer?

I have reinstalled my Microsoft office 2013 pro plus 64bit because i bought an SSD that replaced my HDD.

Last time i installed this on the HDD it took up between 2-3 GB of space on the drive.
When you look up system requirements for office 2013 it will tell you 3GB space required, 64bit or 32bit.

This time around installing it and after all the updates through Windows update, it took about 6 GB.
I am wondering why, is this right ? Is this possibly due to service pack updates till now ?

Thought i read last ones were end of July 2014.

I did do a Disk Cleanup, even removed updates in download folder in C: Windows/Software Distribution.

I also know it creates a hidden folder on C: drive called MSOCache, this only holds about 830MB.
Told by some it is required to be there in case of a install repair and updates.
This is not that much of the amount that i am in question of.

Well i can not seem to find any answers online to verify if it is correct to be taking this much space up, if so i am fine, just wondering if it is right.

Answer:install of Microsoft Office 2013 Pro Plus

Update on this topic, talked to Microsoft support they tell me this is normal to be this size and also due to my system settings and specs.

Since i installed it again, was 57 updates, although i can not see how big each update is now, do not think i downloaded 3GB of updates unless they expanded during installation.

Said something else about language packs possibly being cause, do not see any of those in the updates. When i reinstalled it i usually do not uncheck anything not to be installed, just all the defaults.

Revo uninstaller
shows it at 1279.80MB but again not including updates and service pack.

Howdy all,

This is my first post on the forum! I've had an extremely frustrating problem and can't figure it out. I hope someone here can help me out! In short office 2013 will not install on my computer. It starts going and at some point it just says there's an error and quits. It doesn't give me an error number or anything, it just stops. Here's a little context though:

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, and overall I've been very satisfied with the computer. However, it only came with a 128 GB SSD hard drive, so I decided to add another 128 GB SSD in the second hard drive slot. I got it in the computer and it works perfectly as far as I can tell.The only other thing I changed on my computer was to move the music library to the new hard drive. After adding the hard drive, I tried to use office some time later and it wouldn't work. I tried repairing it with the install disk, and it didn't work. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and it didn't work. It always just stops at some point as I said above. Is there a reason adding a hard drive or moving a library would effect Office?

Thanks in advance!

Willm

Answer:Microsoft Office 2013 will not install

Hi Willm,

welcome to Eight Forums! Good to have you aboard.

About your problem. It is not a problem related to you adding an extra SSD and moving a library. That stuff doesn't influence the Office installation.

Before I can give you advice I need more information. Please provide the following info:
Is it a plain Office pack or the Click-To-Run Office pack?Do you try installing it from a DVD disc or from a standalone executable?Where did you buy the licence?What kind of virusprotection are you using? (i.e. Windows Defender, McAfee, Norton etc.)

Answer:Cant Install Microsoft Office 2013

The "Click to Run" only works for the 32 bit version as far as I know. If you are only using Office 2013 for home or small business use Microsoft recommend that the 32 bit version be installed, as there are actually more features available on the 32 bit version. Of course the 32 bit version works perfectly on Windows 7 x64. I use the 32 bit office 2013 Pro on my Windows 7 x64.
If you wish to install the 64 bit version, load the Office DVD & then Open to explore the files & if you check these you will find the 64 bit version, then double click on that & it will install the 64 bit version.

Hi Everyone,

I am experiencing some issues with the installation (or failed installation!) of Office 2013 Home & Business.

When I initially installed the software I wasn't aware that I should leave the computer running whilst Office 'installed in the background'. I rebooted the computer too early and the installation became corrupted.

At this point I attempted to fix the installation, however there was no improvement, so I made the decision to uninstall Office all together. Once uninstalled, I then reinstalled (from the installation CD / DVD).

Last night I left my computer sitting at 94% installed, as shown below, and when I returned to my computer after 12 hours the installation had not increased by a single percent!

I am now at the point of uninstalling again, however I do not want to reinstall and find the same issue again.

Perhaps there is an "Office cleanup" program that I can run, or certain temp files that need to be deleted, or Registry keys that need tweaking...at any rate any suggestions on how to successfully install the software will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

Answer:Can't install Office 2013, stuck on 94% progress!

Try uninstalling Office again & then disable your anti virus program, before again installing it.
When Office 2013 is installed from a DVD, it does some of the installation via the internet from Microsoft, so it is also important to have you internet connection working at the same time.
Hope this gets you up & running.

But windows update is showing updates for both office 2010 and office 2013.

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

Answer:Office 2010 and Office 2013 both updates available

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cheers

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

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

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

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

Clean installing Windows 10 and have both Office 2010 and Office 2013 available and your thoughts on which should I use. I have been running Office 2010 on my systems and mainly basic use of Word and Excel. Also x86 or x64?

Also would my files created with Office 2010 have any problems with Office 2013?

Thanks,
Jim

Answer:Office 2010 or Office 2013 ? Help Me Decide

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

Your 2010 files should work fine with 2013.

It used to be that double clicking on an Office file would open the file. Now, with Office 2013 a double click on a file is not opening the file, it is just opening the related Office program (Word or Excel, for instance). How do I get the file I'm double clicking to open with the Office program?

Thanks.

Answer:Solved: MS Office 2013 Pro Product Key Failed Install

Hi there,

I feel your pain here. What you have experienced is Microsoft's new 'click to run' (C2R) install process, which streams the install over the internet. The idea is that it will be quick and you can start using the application(s) before they're completely installed, just not all of the features. But, like I said that's the idea, and it sometimes doesn't work that way. Personally I hate it and always ask for the MSI (downloadable file you can run locally), although I have got it to work myself. In fact I don't know anyone who has actually been pleased by this process.

While I don't have a solution for you, I did want to post so you knew you weren't alone in the frustrating process described. That being said, I do think Office 2013 is their greatest achievement yet and is by far the best piece of Office software they've released.

Before this week, I was having some minor USB 3.0 issues on my laptop.  Things were also slow in general.  I then tried to install a legal corporate Office 2013, after unintalling Office 2010.  Word and Outlook 2013 worked fine, so I did the Windows Update to get the possible security updates.  Once they were done, I shut the system down.  When I turned it back on, Office 2013 was gone, included the icons.  There was a place holder icon for Outlook 2013 but nothing more.  Assuming I should try to reinstall Office 2013, I attempted that but was given a bootstrapper error.  In a last ditch effort, I tried Windows Update, which only hung for 20 minutes.

Hello Everyone,
First, thank you all for making this free forum for helping others, this is my first post on EightForums, I was in SevenForums before and I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate x86 to Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64 5 months ago.
Anyway, let's talk about my problem, I installed Office 2013 Pro Plus 4 months ago, last 2 weeks I tried to uninstall it (for some bugs) but it didn't fully uninstall because of "Printer Spooler" service was not available (It was an issue but I resolved it last week). So I tried to uninstall but I didn't find Office 2013 in Add/Remove Programs, I never-minded and tried to install Office today, it was 99% finished but it rolls back and give me an error "Microsoft Professional Plus encountered an error during setup" and I click "Finished" then the setup says "Microsoft Bootstrapper has stopped working" so I read in the internet and people says that some registry keys is still there so I tried the Office 2013 Uninstall Fix-It program where it is here but it doesn't find anything! So I found a video on how to uninstall Office 2010 manually, and I used it on Office Pro Plus 2013 but nothing! I opened Event Viewer and found the Office 2013 log:

I don't want to uninstall office, then re-install as i will have to drop the computer off our domain (Group Policy for some reason, blocks office.) *I'd prefer this to be the final option.

Surely there must be a fix around? Much thanks!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is one reference that might satisfy you:

"Compatibility with existing Office files and solutions

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

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

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

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