installing and upgrading from Office 2007 to Office 2010.

I got the invitation for the Technical Preview of next Office from Microsoft, Office 2010. The new Office as usual comes in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. And the best of all it can be easily upgraded from Office 2007 to Office 2010.

But when you upgrade just make sure you use the same versions that you have been previously using as in bit wise. If you are trying to install 64-bit version of Office 2010 while you have 32-bit version of Office 2007, then you would have a warning message like this.

    If you want to install 64-bit Office 2010, you must uninstall all 32-bit Office products first, and then run setup.exe in the x64 folder. If you want to install 32-bit Office 2010, close this setup. Then navigate to the x86 folder at the root of your CD/DVD and run setup.exe.

In short, you can upgrade from 32-bit Office 2007 to 32-bit Office 2010 and the same with 64-bit but not interchangeably.

Here are the screenshots flow of the installing and upgrading from Office 2007 to Office 2010.

I am loving Office 2010 so far and soon we’ll be discussing and writing about new and exciting features in Office 2010 applications.
