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

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

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?

Preferred Solution: Adding MS Access 2010 to my MS Office Home and Student 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.)

A: 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!

Never a problem with this software until now. Right before I need it for a lecture. Please keep in mind I am not IT savvy.
I go to open any program within Office and the first window that pops up, "Windows Installer, Preparing to install." Normally this window pops up for a second but now it stays up for over 3 mins. The next window that comes up, "Problem with Shortcut; Fatal error during installation." I get this same succession of windows whether I try to open up a presentation on the hard drive or a thumb drive.
How do I fix this?? In laymen's terms please. Thanks

Hi,Just bought bought the Microsoft Home & Student Office 2010 with a licence for three computers.
I have installed it on my main desktop working well,Also installed it on my laptop,Now that makes ''Two'',One more left.Thinking of putting the third one on my wife's laptop,There is one little bug holding me back.
If I do decide to place it on my wife's laptop the three have gone into action.Now if for example my C drive goes Kaput on my desktop and have to have a new C drive where does that leave me to re install that office 2010 on to the new HDD that means that it will be the fourth install.
Am I correct in thinking so?What is my position here please,The Disc I got and paid for is a genuine bought item.
Any thoughts here please.
Many thanks.

the above info is not where i am having issues. I am having trouble on my hp laptop, running windows 7 and a Microsoft Office home and student 2010 product key card. The Office programs worked for about 6 months and now all programs in Office stop working and say to fix in control panel. I cannot seem to fix anything. When I run spybot search and destroy, for some reason, it comes back up and starts working but no spybots are found other than a few cookies, I get it running and then turn it off start it again, open Word and it is ok, I leave the computer for an hour, my daughter opens Word again and now it does not work. I am at my wits end. Ideas?

I am thinking about removing all of the Office programs and then seeing if I can get a backup download.

A:Office Home and Student 2010

Start the Office uninstaller and choose "Repair" from the 3 options presented.

Otherwise uninstall and re-install Office from the CD.
No CD? You won't find a free download anywhere, not legally anyway.

Is it true "Office 2010 Home and Student" only comes in a 32 bit version?

A:Office 2010 Home and Student

No. All versions have a 64-bit option, but you have to do a custom install. The 32-bit version is installed by default for a few reasons. You can read more about it here: 64-bit editions of Office 2010

A:Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010

Hello, make sure that is the only version of Office on that machine, most new computers have a 60 day trial of Office 365 already installed. If that is the case, remove it and reboot the computer. If that is not the case, run a repair from the Office installer, or remove and reinstall (reboot in between)

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.

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

I have 32 bit Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 software installed on a 64 bit Asus running Windows 7. My wife is having conflicts in both Word and Excel. While typing Word will randomly select all text and not let her go any further without doing an undo. She then has to hit save and restart the software. What do I need to do to get this glitch or conflict resolved? Anyone else experience this and know how to fix this? I am sure it is a compatibility issue but not sure what settings to choose and wonder if reinstalling the software might work since updates could be the problem. It worked fine from August until about two months ago. Thanks!

A:Office Home and Student 2010 conflict with Windows 7

It is unlikely to be a conflict between Windows 7 and Office 2010 - they are completely compatible.

Do you have a good anti-virus installed, with up to date definitions?

As a belt and braces measure, you could download Malwarebytes (free) and perform a full scan:

If all is clear, then you could try a repair on your MS Office:

Hey guys,

I just bought Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 because I need it for writing my papers and the like for college. When I open the installer, I get through the steps from the serial key to terms of service agreement and finally installation options all fine. But about halfway through the installation progression, I get a message saying, "Error 1303. Setup cannot access the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Shared\EQUATION. Verify that the folder exists in your system and that you have sufficient permissions to update it." So I went and looked for it and it does exist so I clicked on it and it gave me a message saying access denied. I thought that was supposed to happen so I clicked retry on the installer and got the same deal again. So I went back to the EQUATION file and clicked properties and then the security bar and under the owner section it said owner could not be displayed. So I tried to change the owner to my user account, which is administrator, and got a message saying, "Unable to set new owner on EQUATION. Access denied."

I need help to get this problem solved so I can get to work, thanks.

Perhaps, you had preinstalled Office trial on your PC, and it interferes with the installation.

1. Open Uninstall Programs in the Control Panel and delete Office, if found.
2. Use FixIt for Office 2010 to clean up.
3. Run sfc /scannow in the command prompt. If SFC is unable to fix anything, attached zipped \Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

Now install Office 2010 from your CD and post the results. Include zipped setup logs in case of failure.

I downloaded the trial version of Office 2010 to test for the 30 day period. I ended up buying Office for Student Home 2010. I uninstalled the test version and installed the new Student and Home. Now when I go to use Word, Excel, etc. it begins to install the loader and then goes to a Microsoft Single Image Page 2010 and then to a Configuration page before loading the program I try to open. This takes forever and is a real pain.

Although I uninstalled the trial version, the full office version shows all of the programs in the full version (Publisher, Access, One Note, etc.) I am running Vista, 32 bit, Service Pk 2 Home Premium.......good one for the experts. I need to lower my stress level on this one. Thanks!

I hope I don't have to reload my S/H 2010. I don't have any more PC access, my 3 pcs usage is complete and I'm not spending 150 bullocks to get another copy!

I am using a Dell Inspiron One PC with Windows 7. It was given to me after being used a short time by my son. Evidently MS Office Home & Student 2010 was installed when PC was made. He never used it and neither did I. I have Office 2007 installed and I use it. I tried to open the program and I get the "License error" so I assume it was never registered. I tried to uninstall through remove programs and it only give me a window saying "wait for uninstall to complete." It does nothing. It really isn't hurting anything by being there but MS Updates keeps wanting to download and install updates for it in the amount of 300+ mbs. IS there a way to get rid of the program?

Hey all. I have been trying for the last week to set up the trial version of Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student on my new laptop, and I keep running into the same problem.

The download will get to Step 2 of 4, have about 7% of the download complete, then I will receive this popup message:

"There was a problem setting up Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010:
Cannot connect to the Internet to download required files. Check your Internet connection, and then try again."

Here's what I have done to try to fix the problem:

-checked the wireless internet connection (which, incidentally, is always at full strength when I get this message).

-uninstalled then re-installed the click-to-run from the Microsoft website.

-tried running the program as the administrator.

-tried checking the compatibility and re-configuring the compatibility for Windows 7.

I do not know what else to do and I am really getting frustrated so any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. I should warn everyone ahead of time that layman's terms are the best way to explain what to do to me-I'm not very good at tech-speak if you know what I mean.

Thanks a bunch ahead of time for any help offered!

I wonder if somebody could help me please as I am tearing my hair out!

I purchased Microsoft office Home and Student 2010 when I purchased my laptop. This was installed by the company who sold me the laptop.

I have just had to factory restore my laptop because of problems, but before I did I obtained the 25 digit key by running Bellarc.

I have tried to re-install my package but get the message that my key code is not eligible for a free download - this was using Microsoft's own site. I have spoken to Microsoft but to be honest the lady could hardly speak English and all she told me to do was reset my password, which I did not have as I had not installed the original package.

I have tried to download Openoffice as a quick fix, but there appears to be a problem with that too as I can download it but not actually install it.

I really want my Microsoft package back - any ideas?

Thank you:

Why do I get updates (via Microsoft Update) to Outlook and Visio when these two programs are not part of Office 2010 Home & Student?

If Outlook/Visio are on my HD as trial versions, any way to remove them permanently? I don't intend to use either one...


A:Office 2010 Home & Student - Outlook and Visio Updates

It's my experience that Microsoft includes all updates for the Office applications, simpler than trying to figure out what users actually have installed. It's complicated by the ability to Custom install only those parts the user wants regardless of what the suite includes.

I've only seen Visio as a separate install, mine is a separate downloaded file. Outlook is part of one of the more complete versions of Office [by more complete I mean more expensive].

I have Word, PowerPoint and Excel installed (the rest has been deselected and is marked as not available). I get my updates via Windows Update (WU), however, not just for the modules I use but also for all the other components of the Office 2010 Package. Including the ones I haven't installed and/or paid for.

Someone in the know (?) told me to install all WU updates regardless, however, I'm starting to question this idea, as they pile up over time!

Question: what's the proper policy to follow: a) install everything; or, b) install just the updates relevant to the modules I have installed and use?

If b), 2nd question: should I uninstall the non-relevant updates or am I asking for trouble doing so?


A:Office Home and Student 2010: how to deal with unwanted WU updates


There are many "schools of thought" on this.

Generally speaking, Windows Update for Win7 is pretty reliable about knowing which updates ("patches") are needed for Windows and MS applications, such as MS Office.
Moreover, the many applications within MS Office often share files.
Other times, installing a given patch requires another, earlier patch as a prerequisite.

So, especially for security updates and other "important" patches, I would tend to let Windows Update decide what needs to be installed, even for Office modules you do not actively use.
(For "optional" and "recommended" updates, one might take a more conservative approach, evaluating each patch individually, to determine if it's really needed or helpful.)

Unless you are running short on disk space, there's likely no harm in doing so, while hiding/refusing certain updates could lead to stability or security issues.

If you *are* running short on disk space, then there are many strategies for freeing up space, including an optional "update cleanup" "patch" for Win7 that was released a year or so ago.

I've run into an install problem with a newly purchased Office 2010 Home/Student download to an XP - SP3 machine.

I have a copy of Office 2010 Home and student that came with my computer. It worked well until I tried to install Microsoft Outlook. Now, every time I try to start Outlook, it makes me re-enter my product key. Why is this?
I have tried running office as an administrator, which was a solution I found when I googled my problem, but it still does not work. What is going on here?


A:Office Home & Student 2010 keeps making me reenter product key

Office versions that come preinstalled are trial versions with the exception of Office 2010 starter which is a different animal. You can check your activation status this way:

How to check the activation type and status of Office 2010 installations - Office Deployment Support Team Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

Also, how did you install Outlook, outlook is not included in the home & student version. So its possible what you have now is standard or pro edition and thats why its asking for a key.

Downloaded and installed MS Office Home and Student 2010 successfully, (or so I thought), but every time I open Excel or Word upon startup, I receive a prompt asking me for my key and then a configuration. Once complete, I activate the program just like anyone would the very FIRST time you installed Office 2010. However, when I power down and then restart, Office will ask me for the key AGAIN for another configuration. Sometimes I'll receive this error message. Followed by this message. If so, I re-enter the key and configure a second, or sometimes even a third time. Eventually I can get Home and Student 2010 to open up Word or Excel but this can be anywhere from a five to fifteen minute process. This is never ending and it's driving me bananas! I've tried the Microsoft Fix It download in an attempt to completely uninstall any and all previous versions of Office (trial, beta, etc.) then reinstall but the pc still remembers something somewhere. Is this a potential fatal error from Microsoft? Any advice and assistance is greatly appreciated.

Now I'm doing some DB work and need to use Access and everytime I start it I get the activation wizard. I enter the key, it hums along. Says it's done and to restart. I restart and Voila, the activation wiz starts back up and pretends it's superior to me in every way and says "you ain't goin' anywhere".

MS talks a good game of going to HELP and selecting the "Purchase activation key", but I can't even do that as the wiz pops up and blocks out any action on the Access page.

MS also tells me to look at the PID code in HELP, but again, can't. Wiz says I have to activate.

Third MS gratuitous tip: look at the error code in left hand corner of the wiz box. Well, sure enough, I don't have one.

I have the starter version of office 2010. I discovered that it does not have microsoft document imaging in the tools. I tried to download only that piece out of 2007 but it did not work,possibly because of the starter version limitations. I was thinking that maybe I could have both. I am not sure how to do that because I have read that if they are in the same directory they will conflict with each other. If anyone could give me some step by step instructions on how to do it, I would be really grateful.

A:Have office 2010 and want to install 2007 student on same computer

It's too bad you have Home. If you'ld have had Pro, or Ultimate, you could have taken advantage of virtual machines. You can find free VM players from VMware, or Oracle. Install the OS, like you would on any actual machine, and install your Office program there. It should have access to your printer, CD/DVD player/burner, etc...

I hope this is the right section as I did not find an imaging place.
I used Acronis for years with Win 7 without a problem but whenever I tried to install the newer releases I was rejected without an error message. I inserted my disc and it installed.
I am only concerned that my image will work when needed. I have a system image and when I used the disc, I could find my backup which appeared ok.
I had to rename it as I still have a Win 7 in there too and hope it will not corrupt either image.
I tried the Acronis forum but got no replies with two attempts. I also have the Win 8 native restore program imaged.
Why can't I use the newer Acronis versions and am I ok staying as I am?
Thank you

A:Acronis True Image Home and Student 2010

I don't know about Acronis - don't use it.

There are some good free iamging programs around now.

Aomei Backuper works well.Very easy to use and it makes winpe media for you. Impressive for a freebie.

AOMEI Data Backuper ? free disk imaging and cloning software, backup and recovery for your computer.

Paragon B&R Free supports w8 ( I have the Pro version ).

Macrium free seems to do the job as well.

My new computer came with Office 2007 Home and Student Edition. It has Word, Excel, etc. but does not have Outlook, which I need. Would it make sense to buy stand alone Outlook 2007 or should I buy a more comprehensive suite of Office itself?

If I decide to go with another email program, can I convert all my stored Outlook emails to the new program?

I realise that the subject seems a bit obvious, but what I am trying to do is -

Scenario first...
I have a main form with a primary key QuoteRef which contains the details of people requesting a quotation. Each enquiry has the potential to have variations of product on the same quote e.g. storage container to buy or storage container to hire. So I have created a second table with a primary key, lets call it ContainerID and this table has QuoteRef as its foreign key linked via a one to many relationship.

The main form has a button that opens a second form based on the second table but the QuoteRef is pulled through so that the details in the second form are related to the person's details in the main form. So far so good...

What I would like is someway to add another record to this second table/form but still have it related to the person's details from the first record. I know it can be done using a sub form on the main form but I'm trying to make the actual data entry more user friendly. I tried creating a button using the wizard but this just creates an embedded macro and I can't find a way to edit it in VB.

I think I need code along the lines of

Forms![frmContainerRequirements]![QuoteRef] = Forms![frmContactDetails]![QuoteRef]

where frmContainerRequirements is the second form and frmContactDetails is the main one.

Sorry for being a bit long winded or confusing but I hope someone here can help me.

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!


A:Find Office 2010 Updates, When Office 2010 Isn't Installed?

It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not stop..it take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?

A:Office 2010 Pro Plus Win7 x 64 Excel reconfigures Office 2010

Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?

Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

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

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

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)

I read then that I was to delete the following reg entries



Problem is the bottom entry is not deleteable. If I try to delete it or a subfolder or the key I get

Cannot delete office: Error while deleting key.

I tried deleting the key in safemode or by altering the permissions of it and running regedit in admin mode but nothing worked. I'm running win 7 x64.

I would greatly appreciate any help so I can clean this and install the office 2010 trial.

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.

A: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.

i am mail merging (word 2010 and excel 2010 database).

when i choose to send the messages as HTML, all is good.

when i choose to send text or attachment - i get this security warning. even after pressing "allow" - nothing happens. (nothing = no trace of messages in outbox and no mail sent)

i know that: "If you choose a format other than HTML, an Outlook message may inform you that a program is trying to access e-mail addresses and send e-mail. This message is a security measure designed to protect against viruses that replicate through e-mail. To continue with the merge, select the Allow access for check box in the security warning dialog box, and then select the amount of time that you need to complete the merge. Click Yes. If you are prompted again, continue to click Yes until the merge is complete."

thank you very much!!!!
