2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

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

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.

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.)

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

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

Hi - I am working on an MS XP which I bought second hand from a computer fix-it place. The computer came with Office Small Business. Since this computer has Access on it, I ---- in all my infinite questionable wisdom --- decided to teach myself this application. But, the Access wizards require Office 2000 SR-1 Professional. Can you tell me how to get Office Professional? I've been unemployed since February and not looking forward to paying for anything these days -- will it cost me? Do I need to remove Small Business before loading Professional? Should I just forget it and work with whatever I can with Small Business? Thank you for your infinite wisdom.
 

A:I have Office Small Business but need Office Professional

I assume that you are running the 2000 of OSB version on this machine.
Does your machine have the Office 2000 SR 1 installed?

Also check for ALL of the Office updates and install them.

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?

You could have found it from the original installation on the hard drive. But since you say the hard drive has been formatted I don't know of any way to retrieve it. If it was registered with Microsoft you 'could' try and contact them. I'm not sure how successful you would be. But the key code is not on the install disk.

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.

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

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?

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
Just a quicky -- apart from using say a VM for testing Office 2010 I'd like to install on an existing machine so I can compare immediately if there are any significant differences between Office 2007 and 2010 before deploying for a lot of users.

I've never tried running two versions of office on the same machine -- are there any implications such as incompatable DLL's with the same name etc.

Anybody runnung both versions (32 bit even though I'm running W7 X-64).

Everything was fine until the trial ran out and I followed the uninstall directions. Now when I start my computer across my desktop runs a bunch of boxes before it finally stops at one that says "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the 'Microsoft Office XP Small Business' disk and click OK."

Problem for me is that disk is with everything else I own in a storage unit almost 1,800 miles away!(long story) Is there any way I can fix this computer software problem without having to buy new?

Can you explain how something like this happened because Microsoft has no answer.

Thank you

Have searched some forums for this and found no info. When installing above software, you are given a choice of selective or full install. However, when I choose the selective install, it's ignored, and the whole thing installs. Any tips? I would like to install only Excell. Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Everytime I try to update copy of MS Office Small Business XP, after the files are downloaded it asks for my original CD. When my copy of MS Office Small Business XP that came with my Dell, I keep getting the same error message. For some reason the file that the update require is not on the CD. The CD is the original that came with computer and I even tried browsing the CD for the file but the file it is looking for is not there. What gives?
Here is the error message:
"The file Microsoft Office XP Small Business is not a valid installation package for the product Microsoft Office XP Small Business. Try to find the installation package "SBERET.MSI in a folder from which you can install Microsoft Office XP Small Business."
Numerous attempts same error message. Any thoughts?

Hello,
I just reformatted my hard drive, reinstalled XP, went to install my Office 200 small business, and it turns out my cd is toast, specifically bad sectors in office1.cab.
So basically I am looking for an image of disc1 or a copy of of office1.cab.
Thanks

Tried polishing the CD?

Brasso or toothpaste are both effective, if the errors are caused by scratches to the underside of the CD.

Hi All,

I bought a 15 user licensed Back Office Small Business Server which was un-installed as the company grew and SBS was no longer adequate for their needs.

The software includes all documents and licenses and have a proper invoice from the company, confirming that it has been completely un-installed from their servers and that now i am the licensee.

I installed Back Office Small Business Server successfully using the registration ID provided on the original CD case. However, it asked for a 15 digit ID before it installs office 2000, which I can't find anywhere in the pack or on the back of CD.
Called the company and they claim that they had gave me all the documents and Cd's and either can't be bother to look for it or they really think it was in the back.

However, this leaves me in a somewhat undesirable position, as I have already paid for the complete bundle which included Novell, NT Workstations, FaxWare, ARCServe, Backup Exec and a few others and am not able to complete the installation of my server and am left with a intranet without a domain controller.

Can anyone suggest where or how can I prove that I have genuine license and obtain a new 15 digit id for office 2000 that is included in Back Office Small Business Server.

If this does not come free, as I have already invested a lot in hardware and software, I have no choice.

I did spend some time browsing Microsoft site hoping that I will find an option to apply for a new one but couldn'... Read more

A few weeks ago (right after I installed Norton 360), I started getting messages on my computer that the updates failed for excel and word. Right after that, I noticed that every time I opened excel, I would get the "preparing to install" box and the program would ask me to insert the disk. Every time I did that, the program(s) would work fine until I shut down the computer. Then, the problem would start all over again. THEN, I noticed that the computer was updating with EVERY boot and the same two updates would fail. After dealing with this for a few weeks, I decided to try repairing the program. While trying to un-install the program, I started getting the message "Cannot access registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run/OptionalComponents/MSFS. Since then, I have been unable to either uninstall or re-install the program.

I would wager that since the error started right after installing Norton 360, that Norton 360 is responsible. Have you tried uninstalling Norton?

I recently bought NEAT RECEIPTS, during the install a window popped up say MS Net Framework 2.0 would be installed. This could not be installed and I received the following error;
Error 20515, Failed to INSTALL ASSEMBLY 'C\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\
V2.0.50727\Microsoft.Visual Basic.VSA.dll' because of System error: 0x80131107

I then tried to go straight to the Microsoft web site and install it from there with the same results. What can I do to resolve this issue.

Thanks,

Hello.

I think that you will find help here, but Microsoft does provide free technical support for update related problems.

Verify that the error is NOT 25015 .

Which version of XP & which service pack?

I recently had to do a complete reinstall on my laptop due to a program I could not remove. After reinstalling MS Office 2003 I found it does not function as before. When I open any of the programs ie; Word, Excel or Outlook a window opens that says, Installing components for Excel, Word or whatever program I'm going to use. It never did this before, do I need to to remove and reinstall? Your assistance will be appreciated.

Reinstall it, not repair...and make sure you choose "full install" sounds like either install was corrupted or there is a problem with Windows Installer...speaking of that did you do all Windows Updates after clean install?

I have a Dell with XP Home and XP Small Business Edition. For some reason I have started having problems. If I go to the Microsoft website and try to scan for updates ,it won't scan. It says it is unable to check for updates. I tried to search for help at Microsoft but you have to send them your bank account number. I also have two updates for Net Framework that won't install. See attachment. When I click on Exel or Word it says to install CD. But when you close the pop up Word or Exel works fine. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

I was given a copy of OFFICE 2000 Small Business Edition by my neighbour. He only had the disks and no serial or CD key. I tried to use the serial from SERIALS 2000 and also from other sites - but none of them work.
Perhaps I need an activation code as well?
Can anyone offer any suggestions.
Thank You

Do you get any error message? Does the program actually crash --as in, "fail to respond"-- or does Outlook simply not do anything and the program just sits there?

Hi there all
I have a problem with office 2000 small business edition. My neighbour gave me the discs - but has lost the box which the package originally came with - so I'm stuck without a key number for it. I have tried every darn serial number that I can find and none of them work.
Am I stuck with a lemon do you think.
A friend of mine told me that it might need an activation code or a new activation code in order to install it. Is this true and if so how do I go about getting an activation code for the program. Any help you guys might be able to offer would be really appreciated.

If your neighbor registered the copy of Office with MS, then he should be able to call them and get a keycode and/or replacements disks for a nominal fee.

I just posted this in another forum, but thought this may be the better forum for the post. Anyhow, I keep getting an error message while installing MSO 2000. I get an error saying that a font is not available or something like that. I looked up the file and found it, but it was not readible. Any suggestions? Is there any place I can get the fonts I need?
