Q: Microsoft Office 2010/ Replace Office 2010

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 and Microsoft Office 2007 Small Business. I will be receiving Office 2010 Professional Plus. Do I have to uninstall Office 2007 Small Business or can I install Office 2010 over it. What is the best way to handle the upgrade. I have a lot of files on word and excell. Will they transfer over.

Thanks in advance for all your help and cooperation.


Preferred Solution: Microsoft Office 2010/ Replace 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.)

Thanks in advance for all your help and cooperation.


A:How to replace microsoft office 2007 / with 2010

I would uninstall Office 2007 and then install 2010, but they can probablly both be installed on one computer. Also 2007 Word/Excel documents will both work in 2010 the same exact way.

Good Evening Everyone,

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

A: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.

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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?

A: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.

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?

I get those type of updates for my Office 2003. There are some later updates that can be applicable. For example, I installed a converter that lets me open later MSWord formats (2003 is doc) and now I get updates for later Office versions.

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

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?

A: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 really am not sure if anyone can help with this problem without restoring to factory settings or reinstalling windows because i don't want to do any of these.

Here's the problem, my brother and i were using the computer for work stuff and this is a new laptop with Microsoft Office 2010 preinstalled so we installed it using Office Starter to use Word.
Basically i uninstalled it by mistake and had to do a system restore and since then it was saying there was a problem with licensing but because it was preinstalled there is no key and since then i've been trying to sort things with system restore and made them a whole lot worse, i can now not install Office starter at all it's saying is:

"There is a problem setting up Microsoft Office Starter 2010"

"Windows cannot find c:\program data\microsoft\OEMoffice14\ostarter\en-us\welcomedocument.dotx"

"Unable to install Microsoft Office because of missing or corrupt files. Contact your computer manufacturer"

So im thinking im a lost cause unless anyone has suggestions but as i said i dont want to do any drastic measures like restoring to factory settings.

Thank you.

I purchased a used laptop without a CD Rom/DVD player. Though, it does have an SD slot. I want to install my Office 2010 on this computer but obviously, it's on a CD Disc. Is it possible to copy the Office disc to a SD card and install? Yes, I know I can purchase an external CD/DVD drive, but I rarely use it and wanted to avoid purchasing something I will rarely use. Though, if that's my only option, then I'll do so, but wanted to see if there were other options.
Thank you.

Having just "one" great pal with a clean computer and a DVD/CD writer will work for a start!
Next you would need to extract the ISO file and inject it into the SD card..this is where another BC member who has

I have been using Microsoft word 2003 updated to 2007 for a few years.I started getting the "Genuine" notice and found I needed to pay $99 for a legal copy.I then saw a download for Office 2010 with a ZWT KMS-Keygen mini activator supplied as Microsoft service.I have read some details on this and it appears it is due on the shelves in June.What is being released appears to be for "feed-back".
When I came to uninstall word 2007 I found a number of security updates for 2003 on my list of programs so I removed these as well.
Are these copies "pirated" if so will the activator be negated at a later time?

Not sure that this will work, but maybe worth a try:
Office 2010 PowerPoint. Some 1997-2003 ppt files will not open. - Microsoft Community

I found this to be a patch to the problem...
Easier solution to the above problem. It would appear that when downloaded normally, the browsers are flagging the file as being potentially unsafe, whereas DownThemAll! is not. It would also appear the the PowerPoint 2010 programmers failed to handle this in the code. So, the easiest way to get around this error is to navigate to the file on your computer, right-click it and go down to properties. In the box that pops up, go down to the security section (at the bottom) and unblock the file. Open file.

I'm just wondering if the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit Office 2010 is worth the effort just like the jump from 32-bit OS's to 64-bit seems to be for the industry.

I read that Microsoft advised not to make the jump for Office 64-bit as it's too early and will give organisations some kind of compatability issues. They were saying to let 64-bit mature and consider it in the 2013 Office. What will you do?

My husband tried to email a word document and an excel spreadsheet from his office to his home laptop but is having problems.

The document from the office was created in MS Office 2010 32-bit but saved as a 97-2003 compatible document since not everyone is on 2010.

His new home laptop is set up with MS 2010 64-bit, but when tried to open the word document, it would not open until he saved it as a MS Word 2010 document, and Excel would not open.

Does it make any difference that the home pc is 64-bit MS Office for compatability problems?

I just installed Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus on my netbook, but whenever I close Microsoft Word, it doesn't close and leads to it being "not responsive". How do I fix this? Nothing else has the same effect...except for Microsoft Word.
I had Microsoft Office 2010 Pro Plus installed, but since this weekend the Microsoft Word just wasn't working properly. Thus, I gave it a go and tried to uninstall then reinstall it a few times. None of those times worked out.

A:Microsoft Office 2010

Whenever installations get borked, I always recommend uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller before attempting to reinstall. Be sure to do the "Advanced" search, and delete everything that is found (Office leaves a lot behind).While you're at it, Publish a Snapshot using Speccy. I could probably guess at what hardware your netbook has, but I'm still curious. Sometimes large programs freeze on netbooks due to a low-power processor like the Intel Atom. I'd blame Office first, but we'll check both options before making a conclusion.

You will need to re-install Office 2010. Sounds like to me when you did the upgrade you didn't upgrade with the apps setting.

I just got a new desktop computer that is running Windows 8. My old computer, which was hit by lightning and made inoperable, had Microsoft Office 2010 on it.

I bought the new computer, which has no Microsoft Office on it, other than an offer to buy Office 2013.

This may be a dumb question but can I download Office 2010 since I had it before or will I need to buy it again or buy a newer vesion ? I have no product key for it because it was pre-loaded onto my old computer.

If so, as an alternative, are there any free programs out there that operate like Microsoft Office ? I have a few thumb drives that I cannot get into now because they are requiring Office to open them.

A:Microsoft Office 2010?

It was probably an OEM license which means it died with your old computer. You would need a full office license for it to be transferable which would mean you would have disks and a box with a license key or you would have an MS store login where you could manage your purchased products.

Try this Apache OpenOffice - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

or this LibreOffice 4 is here!

They are free.

A:Microsoft Office 2010

Hi there

1) Can you post a screen shot -- the only time I've ever been asked for an Office product key is when you start the INSTALL process. After installation you will get an Activate Office screen the first time you run any office application.

2) what Office programs open ?. you should only basically have Powerpoint, EXCEL and WORD applications in the student and teacher office editions.

3) Although this should really be 1) - Did you INSTALL office 2010 correctly. It's possible also you had some other versions of office on the machine too --these should really be removed before installing Office 2010.

I have recently had to have my Dell all-in-one operating system "refreshed" in order to resolve some issue that did not seem to have resolutions available.  So far, so good, but now I am facing other problems in trying to bring various aspects
of the computer functions back to where I was.
Previously, I had program icons on my Windows 8.1 desktop for all program in my Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus.  The icons are no longer resident on the desktop, and the program names are no longer present on my start menu, although I have
reloaded the Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus.  The various Office files-Word, Excel, etc.-are now functional.
However, in addition the issues noted above, I can no longer access the "search" function by scrolling the cursor to the extreme right side of the screen.  Therefore, while the existing Office file on the desktop appear to function correctly,
I can find no way to 1) directly access the Office programs and 2) select items through the "search" methodology mentioned through the extreme right screen approach.
Obviously, I am not very technically adept, and would be very appreciative of your assistance.

My wife, who is a school teacher, has been notified by her school they have an arrangement under which Microsoft are offering the school's staff a discount on Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus from c.300 to 6.15, which is rather dramatic discount by the generous Mr Gates by anyone's standards. As we currently use Office in an earlier version, this is an attractive offer. My immediate reaction was to worry that we would need to upgrade to Windows 7 (we currently use Vista), but Microsoft have anticipated my concern by offering us copies of 7 as well, also at 6.15. I was wondering if anyone can see any problems with this offer. So is this a case of 'not looking a gift horse in the mouth' or are there hidden problems?

A:Microsoft Office Professional 2010

Sounds all fine to me. Companies are often generous with school systems. Future customers are among the users.

But is is not at all necessary to use Windows 7 to use the new office. On the other hand, it is a deal that you may not see again and an upgrade from Vista should proceed smoothly since they have the same kernel.

(Eventually, even gift horses may need dental work. It isn't really a "gift" if you need to shell out for new dentures.)

Run Office Setup again and, from the three options, choose "Repair".

If that doesn't fix it, you'll have to re-install Office.

Hi guys, first of all, let me apologize if my english is not that good, I'm from Argentina and it's not my native language.

So, the thing is that I bought a new computer (check my specs) which came with Microsoft Office 2010 included. I started using it like a month ago, and a notification pop up appeared everytime I ran any of the office programs, asking to activate it. I tried once or twice to do it, I couldn't, but I was still able to use Word, etc so I didn't try hard.

Since yesterday, the activation is required mandatory in order to use Office. And this is what happens:

Activate software via internet---> Connecting --> Error not specified. Your petition cannot be processed right now. Try again later. (0XC004C032) *(I translated it, it may say something a bit different)
Well, I tried using the Microsoft Fix It but when I try to install it it says "This Microsoft Fix it does not apply to your operating system or application version".
Any ideas??

Thanks a lot!!

A:Microsoft Office 2010 Activation

Welcome to the forums.
Your english is (very) good.

I've also had an Office 2010 which came preinstalled and required activation. Same story: I wasn't able to activate it and it seemed to be a trial version, wasn't sure if I had a key...

Afterwards I bought a full version and I was able to activate it online each time after a reinstall of the system.

If you have the key inserted, that's good. You might also try the phone activation system if everything fails.

If you need to activate often on the same machine due to reinstalls, OS-testing:
Once you got it activated, you can backup the activation for later (can be used on same pc after a format/reinstall) by using Advanced Tokens Manager. This saves time and works even if you are offline when trying.

I hope Microsoft can help me. a few days ago I reformatted my desktop PC which was running Vista and also ran Microsoft Office 2010 Professional. I installed Windows 7 on it plus my other software, but when I re-installed Office 2010 Professional and tried to activate it, I got the message "Product Key Invalid ."
My Office 2010 is a legal copy which I bought a few years back and has functioned perfectly up until I wanted to re-install it on my PC with Windows 7. I tried to activate it by phone with Microsoft in South Africa (where I live) but got the message that it was an "illegal copy", which it certainly is not. Can anyone help???

A:Microsoft say my Office 2010 is Illegal!!!!!!

This can only be resolved through Microsoft so make haste and contact them directly.

Roxann, Welcome to the windows 7 forum.

Yes, if you upgrade, your documents will be available to your new office 2010.

Office 2010 is very very similar to 2007 in lots of areas.
