Any issues going from Office 2007 to Office 2010 in Win 7?

by barkal_l / July 14, 2010 10:53 AM PDT

Just got my copy of 32-bit Office Pro Plus from school, and before I install it, I just wanted to see if there have been any issues doing an in-place upgrade to 2010 as yet.

Options - Upgrade or Customize.
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / July 14, 2010 8:33 PM PDT

i can't be sure about the retail version of Office 2010, but I know that with the Beta version users were offered a choice of Upgrade over Customize.

The Upgrade removed Office 2007 and replaced it with 2010, so be sure you have the 2007 setup disks if ever you want to revert back.

The Customize option allows you to have both Office versions installed at the same time, in the Beta version. More about that here;

I hope that helps.

It's the same thing as the Beta install. No issues really, except the really minor hiccup of having to download new Outlook Connector software, but that was really it.

Upgrade Office 2007 to Office 2010

If you want to upgrade Microsoft Office 2007 to Microsoft Office 2010, then the first thing you will need to do is to download Microsoft Office 2010 setup
from MSDN or TechNet. After that, start the installer, enter the
product key and click on the 'Continue' button. On the screen that comes
up, accept the terms and conditions and click on the 'Continue' button
for upgrading your Microsoft Office edition. After doing all this, you
will be asked to restart your computer system. You will need to click on
the 'Yes' button to restart the computer and finish the installation
process. Once you have done this, you will be able to use all new
features of Microsoft Office 2010.
