Microsoft has accidentally posted details about a promotion it will be running for those who buy Office 2007 a few months before and after the release of Office 2010 in June 2010. It is called the "Microsoft Office 2010 Technology Guarantee Program," though Redmond is not yet ready to announce it. "Microsoft has not disclosed an Office 2010 Technology Guarantee," a Microsoft spokesperson told Ars. "We have no further comment at this time."

Download Free Chemistry Add-in for Office Word 2010 and 2007.

Citing the need to support the ability of chemists to communicate in their discipline-specific language as essential to scientific research, Microsoft has made available for download a free add-in for the 2010 and 2007 flavors of Office Word. Dubbed informally Chem4Word, the add-in was developed by Microsoft Research and the Unilever Centre for Molecular Science Informatics at the University of Cambridge, and was released at the American Chemical Society?s Spring 2010 National Meeting & Exposition. Alex Wade, director for Scholarly Communication, Microsoft Research, explained that the Word extension was capable of supporting specific symbols across technologies and file formats, and streamlining authoring and semantic annotation.

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.

Thanks,

Grubby

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.

Any idea when Office 2013 will be available for download / upgrade?

Thanks!

A: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 . !!

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:

Further, when I send documents via email between computers I find that some .docx files arrive as .dat files. Does not ever happen when files are simply move across the network

Hi there

I've managed to get Office 2007 (PRO) to install and run perfectly on Linux (with Wine). Office 2010 seems absolutely to resist working with Linux. Office 2010 32 bit version gets a lot of the way but then fails with "Un-recoverable error". I nearly DIED when I loaded up my old Enterprise office 2007 and IT WORKED !!!.

I can't see any perceivable differences between Office 2007 and 2010 that would make any difference at all to even quite a sophisticated user.

My VBA macros in Excel all work -- I've been playing around with WPS (Kingsoft) office on Linux but OFFICE 2007 has things like OUTLOOK etc which are very useful and WPS office is still in "Alpha" stage.

I haven't had any glitches in Office 2007 so I can't actually see what's wrong if I stick with it -- in any case I doubt whether businesses even in 20 years time (will long be retired) will not be able to handle office 2007 documents.

(I still have the "Terminal access" Enterprise key of Office 2007 i.e multiple activations so it actually ACTIVATED OK too !!).

I've been considering upgrading my Office 2003 installations, since support has run out, and, well, the program is 11 years old.

I primarily use Word, Excel, and Project. Occasionally PowerPoint. So it seems obvious that a Home & Student version would be fine for me, since MS Project does not come bundled in any Office product.

My initial criteria are these:
I do not want to rent the software. I want to pay for it once and own it.
Can't be tied to one PC. I want to be able to install it on my newest PCs as I replace my old one with a new one.
I want a physical or file copy - DVD or Download.
I want the program installed on my hard drive. I do not want to access business software over the internet.
I want to install the same version on 2 desktops and 1 laptop. Obviously looking for the least expensive (legal) way to do this. This might include keeping Office 2003 on one or more machines.
Base on my criteria it looks like I am best off with MS Office 2010 Home & Student 3x Family Pack.
Amazon US is selling this for $280. EDIT: $260.

I'm looking for feedback, constructive criticism, warnings, and advice. My criteria is not set in stone, but it is what I am comfortable with. This is a business decision, so the long term cost is going to be the main deciding factor.

TIA for any comments.

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.

A:office 2007 or 2010?

There are a few advantages to 2010. You can copy from one document, paste to another, and have a choice of which formatting to retain. I actually installed the 64-bit version, which was of course a mistake. Certain plug-ins will not work, such as EndNote 4. You can take screen shots directly from Word, new word art effects. etc. Nothing really major that would warrant me, personally, from upgrading. But I am entitled to the latest software where I work, so it's a no brainer. If you have the money to blow, get 2010. If you are conserving cash, stay with 2007. If you are broke, go with OpenOffice (which has now changed its name).

Hi!

I was just thinking if it is possible to have both Office 2007 and 2010 in the same OS?

Windows 7 in the PC have Office 2007. Now I want to upgrade to Office 2010. Firstly, is there any way to do it free? I mean I am not sure if I'll be ok with Office 2010 as much as I had been with Office 2007. So, obviously I'll prefer if I'm allowed to try it before..... something like a test drive.....

I was thinking of Office 2010 Starter edition..... Is it possible to have it along with the 2007 version?

Also, a friend of mine has recently got the Office 2010 Home and Business edition. Can I try it before buying?

Installed MS-Office Power-Point 2010 over Power-Point 2007. Problems with PP 2010 compatibility caused me to un-install PP 2010. From research on the web, I tried to reinstall PP 2007 by "Repair/Reinstall" MS-Office from the Control Panel. Setup ran for a very long time (7+ hrs) and hanging up about 2/3 through, so stopped I the process. Now MS Outlook occasionally turns to a blank orange screen and Windows Installer launches, trying to install a "Hybrid" 2007. If I reboot, Outlooks comes up OK and is usable. What do I need to do to: 1. Get Power-Point 2007 back and resolve the Outlook issue. I cannot find a reference to this anywhere - thank you, any help would be most appreciated.

Hello,

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated
Office 2003 SP 3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any hel on this issue.

Sorry Jonesnewton, The process to upgrade to office 2010 is to buy a new copy of Office 2010. I don't believe that MS has a cheap upgrade.

You can upgrade if your a student or teacher with the special version for students/teachers. Or they also have a military version that is only sold in military exchanges.

Hi all
I've been a bit disappointed with Ms Office 2010 from a USER point of few -- I like the appearance etc but there are just TOO many bugs to consider running it on a Daily use Machine -- especially with the way Outlook 2010 seems to work (or not work correctly) when using IMAP.

I'll try things a few times but email is DEFINITELY ONE THING that should be 100% - even if it is a BETA product.

I can forgive the occasional glitch in say an EXCEL macro - or even some strange print problems with word but my email NEEDS to work as near correctly as the version I already have.

MS this is a SERIOUS error --

If you have 2 machines one running Outlook 2010 and the other 2007 - purged mail is INVISIBLE on 2010 -- fine that's what you would expect

However when you logon on to your other machine with outlook 2007 the email is still listed in the IMAP folders with a line through them -- and if you haven't purged your folder using Outlook 2007 then your IMAP mailbox can get full after a week or so..

It seems only outlook 2007 will purge these from the server if you set Outlook 2010 to "keep mail on the server".

If I delete without purge the mail just disappears from any folder in Outlook 2010.

This is NOT how email should behave.

I might be able to tinker around for obscure settings to make Outlook 2010 behave a bit like Outlook 2007 -- I haven't succeeded yet.

Now If I'm having trouble I think your average user won't have a hope.

I just purchased a new laptop and have been moving my files from my old machine with VISTA and Office 2007 to the new machine with Windows 7 and Office 2010.

I installed Office 2010 and it all worked fine, when I moved my saved files over to the new machine I could not open Excel files. I finally got that fixed and everything opens fine on the new computer.

When I back up the new computer on an external drive I am unable to open the Excel files again on the external drive or even if I move them back on the new machine, the same files currently on the new machine [in a different folder] open fine.

How do I go about getting a backup copy on an external souce that can be read by another computer?

Can I get rid of Office 2010 and return to Office 2007?
If I uninstall Office 2010 and re install Office 2007 will 2007 be able to read the Excel, Word, and Outlook files. I don't use any of the other programs in Office.

It came on the machine and I have been using it but I don't like the way they changed the look and feel of things to make me think I have received value for my money. It only makes it harder for me to complete the very limited number of tasks I use it for. Now I have to hunt around to figure out what to do. And, now it is asking me to activate and I am thinking I don't want to pay them to make my life more difficult.

Anyway, Thank you for your consideration
 

A:Office 2010 rollback to 2007

You can certainly switch back to Office 2007 but as regards any documents created with any Office 2010 module, you won't get full backwards compatibility (except for Outlook).

In Word, Excel & PowerPoint, any docs created in the 2010 versions may not display or edit properly in the 2007 versions if, when those docs were created, you used any new features which the 2007 versions do not have.

If you didn't use any of the new features unique to the 2010 versions, you should have no problems with opening/reading those docs.

Hi there
sounds wrong to me -- 45 mins to install ANY version of office via a LAN or not sounds definitely wrong - upgrades though generally DO take longer than clean install due to the complexity of the process.

Might be better to uninstall office 2007 and install office 2010 from scratch. Standard company templates etc you've probably got on a LAN anyway for your users.

Installing Office 2010 (X-64) from scratch (admittedly on a W8 rather than W7 system - but that shouldn't make a difference - was trialling W8) using a small not very powerful Netbook took exactly 7 minutes -- that was the PRO version with OUTLOOK, ACCESS, EXCEL, WORD, POWERPOINT, PUBLISHER etc.

Something definitely sounds crazy with your installation.

(Note with mine that was the BASE install only -- it took a while to download and install SP1 together with all the fixes -- now if your install is updating these automatically then since is the longest part of the process the time will probably be the same - assuming you are getting the ...

I have made the point in a previous post that each time developers introduce a new more glitzy version of a mature piece of software / application, as often as not basic functionality suffers as the price for the addition of new gizmos.  Such in my view is the case with Outlook.  I have Office 2003 on my home  PC, 2007 on an old XP office PC (quite serviceable), but 2010 on a new office PC which I will be obliged to adopt.  The later Outlook is in basic operational terms (as set up at present at least) 'orrible.
Is it possible to retro "configure" it so that it has the appearance and feel of Outlook 2007 even if to revert to an earlier version would be asking too much?

Hi guys,
I was just wondering if someone was able to lend a hand in helping me set up microsoft office 2007 or 2010 for multiple languages at once. You see, I'm taking a Spanish class in college, and I want to be able to write accent marks correctly but easily. I figured that the easiest way to do this would be to switch the keyboard layout so that office will automatically respond to the change in language and I won't have to make wide stretches with my fingers or memorize hundreds of unicode characters. All through high school, the only way I was ever able to do accents in Spanish was by typing in the unicode characters. Please let me know what I can do to solve this problem. Thanks.

Since support is about to end for 2003 version, I think that it may be time to change. If I go to either 2007 or 2010 version, I think that I understand that "opening and reading" an "XLS" file will not be any problem since you can use the
Compatibility Pack". I am not so sure about the templates ( XLT ) files. Will I be able to continue those files, because I use them on a daily basis. Will an XLT file open and be able to be used in either 2007 or 2010 ?

A:Changing from Office 2003 to either 2007 or 2010

XLS files can still be opened. Supposedly it is possible that some things might appear a little different when opening them with newer versions, but I've never found this to be true. And while I can't tell you for sure, I'm 98% sure XLT files will open just fine too. Basically you can open old format files in newer versions of Office, but you can't open newer format files with older Office versions.

Hi all,

I'm in the process of testing the rollout of Office 2010.
It's going good so far, as to say, the installer launches and the serial/licence key enters in nicely...
But: i can't seem to find the syntax/string that tells the installer to automatically upgrade previous versions.

For example, using unattended "silent" installs, nothing appears to happen, even after an hour. So i set the installer to display the progress ("full") and it sits at 'upgrade or custom' install. So i guess i need to add 'automatically upgrade' but i can't find where that is!

Can anybody help?

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.

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!

Thanks

I have a client running Win 7 64-bit with MS Office 2010 home & Student.

It appears that installing Avast Free killed the product activation, blanked out device manager, and prevented Office from being activated after a clean re-install.

Has anyone ever experienced the following problem? If so was there a cure?

Have installed office 2010 60 day free trial. After I click on the shortcut Microsoftword 2010, a window pops up and says "Type your 25-character Product Key". I cut and paste the key in that was given to me and after a few seconds I get a message below the box that says " The key you have entered is valid". This is in green and there is also a green check mark beside the box where I entered the product key.

I then hit the continue button. After a few seconds I get a message in red that says "Installing the product key failed. Please try another product key" There is also a red "X" beside the box where I entered the product key.
How do I correct this?

I've made sure that there isn't another version on my desk top, I uninstalled/reinstalled. I saw on a web site to contact the activation center but when following the steps to determine the activation center tele # for my area at one point it says to start the microsoft application. Well that's the problem. It won't start when entering the product key.

Just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this? If I can't get this resolved then I would like to find some other software that works just as well as microsoft word.

Thanks in advance

I got a new computer in 2010 and, as I thought, got rid of all the pre-installed stuff. I then purchased and installed the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 suite.
After doing that I discovered that Microsoft Office 2007 had been pre-installed (I presume a trial version) and it seemed that there was no way I could uninstall it. I don't know if the install of the 2010 Office Suite affected it in some way.
Anyway now I am getting Windows updates for both Office Suites. Do I need to install both or can I just hide the updates for the 2007 Suite and ignore them.

Hi all

Serious showstopper for me in Office 2010.

With IMAP the default works differently to 2007 - in 2007 deleted items just have a line through them until you PURGE the items.


In 2010 the purge item on the menu doesn't exist so the default DELETES the items.

If you opt for "Mark items as deleted but do not move" it still won't put a line through the deleted items and moves the items to the "deleted" folder where you can delete them.

However while that is NOT what I want its better than nothing.

BUT the NEXT time you open outlook 2010 and delete mail it reverts back to deleting mail again without even moving it to the delete folder.

Now I like the other programs such as EXCEL 2010 etc etc -- but I NEED outlook to work in the way it did in versions 2003/2007 otherwise its a NO GO for our work.

So relucantly I've re-installed office 2007 on a work laptop computer until this is sorted out again.

I've double checked the delete options and I have them set correctly.

Cheers

If you've been using the 30-day version of Microsoft Office 2010, here's a nice tip for you: the testing period can be extended for up to six months. Much like Windows, the popular productivity suite contains a so called rearm function that gives you 30 extra days to activate the program. The command can be used up to five times, and if used at the end of each 30-day grace period, you can run Office 2010 for up to 180 days without entering an activation key.

Corrupt installer databases are to blame. This appears to appen with Office and Adobe pdf products. The installer database contains your .ICO or icon files. Sometimes the icons also mysteriously disappear from the porgramfiles directory as well. I have not found a solution as of yet and this continues to happen after fresh reformats. As for reinstall or repair sometimes these fail due to the corrupt installer database as is the case for me. If this is the case this thread may help you. THe program sugusted by Windows star filetypemanager may help you locate the missing installers and replace the missing file extension icons.

For the Excel gurus out there. Let me know if this is possible.

We are running WinXP with Office 2002/2003 in our office. There is a shared excel document that is used/edited by 4 people at the same time. They copy info from their Lotus Notes into Excel and then use the text to columns feature to separate it across a few columns. This is used as a log for the work they do every day. One user was upgraded to Win7/Office 2010. When he opens the file and copies the info from his email, text to columns is grayed out. If I turn off the shared workbook option, he is able to use text to columns. I called out help desk and after 2 days, they called me back and said it can't be done. Is this true? Why would a function be taken away in the newer version? I was told this was also in Office 2007. Please let me know what you find out.

Thanx,

Chris
 

A:Text to Columns - Shared Workbook (Office 2007/2010

I doubt that the function is 'taken away' you must realize that if one person is working with 2010 and the rest with 2003 or earlier, there is a problem with comapatability issues and therefore some default actions may be greayed out.

clicking on "Restore defaults" fixes it.

but the next time i start Outlook, or sometimes even if i just take a look at some inbox-folders and then go back to outlook today,
then it?s the same problem all over again.

i have used 2010 for a while, and never seen those problems before,
it all started a few days ago after i changed some other settings, only problem is that i can?t remember exactly what i did.

one weird thing is that the problems only seems to be with my user-account, if i use my admin-account everything works ok.

then reinstalled 2010.

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 preinstalled including Office 2010 Starter. I have installed Office 2007 as my preferred version at this time, and am at a loss as to how to make it the default. I tried unistalling the 2010 Starter version, only to find that that Office files were no longer recognisable, and all file icons had dissappeared.

Okay, I've never posted on anything like this before so bear with me please. I've got an issue and it's driving me nuts because I can't resolve it. I'll try and give a description of what I did. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I purchased a new Dell computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) that came with a trial version of Office 2010. I had previously purchased an Office 2010 Pro so I wanted to install the full version on my computer. When I did, I had both versions installed, so I uninstalled the trial version. That's when I think my problem arose, but I can't say for sure that it didn't exist before that because I hadn't even looked.

Here's the problem:
When I'm in Windows Explorer looking at my files, my Excel and Word files (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx) show up with an improper file type description. Instead of saying "Microsoft Word Document" or "Microsoft Excel 1997-2003 Worksheet" (or whatever they're supposed to say) the simply say "DOCX File" or "XLS File". Not only that, but the icons don't look right either. They sort of look right, but they're smaller and sort of greyed out (Except the .docx icon is just a white page with lines object).

The strange thing is, is that ALL my other Office files show up with correct descriptions and icons etc. (.ppt, .pptx, .csv....etc - ALL of them!)

My MS Office files have generic icons, and when I open them, Windows asks me which program to use. Office 2010 isn't even on the list. A trial version of Office 2007 came with my laptop. I downloaded the Office 2010 beta, then uninstalled 2007. Since I uninstalled the old Office, all my Office files are no longer associated with Office, and there seems to be no way to remarry them. Office 2010 (beta) doesn't appear in the default programs control panel. The only way I can open those files is to open Word/Excel/etc, and File>Open. I feel like this should be simple. Any ideas?

Hi fred93 The documents you created with Office programs aren't related to it. You can simply uninstall Microsoft Office 2003, and install Office 2010 and you'll be able to use them again. Simple as that.
