A Quick Guide for Microsoft Office 2010 Installation


Microsoft Office 2010 requires no upgradation and makes the user comfortable with their work. The main system requirements are 1.5 GB hard disk space, operating systems-windows vista, windows 7, windows server 2008 R2(64 bit), and windows XP(32 bit). It requires a graphic processor with 64 MB of memory and supports DirectX 9.0c.

There are many new features available in Office 2010 that brings a lot of change to your working lifestyle. Now you can publish your document as an article or blog because there are settings available for Blogger, TypePad, Word Press, Live space etc. PowerPoint provides the option of saving the documents on a CD or save a video presentation. PowerPoint also provides the facility of video editing with the effects of 3D, reflection, frame, shadow etc. So it will be very beneficial working in such an environment where you will get so many newly added tools without doing any configuration of your system.


If you want to work both in Office 2007 and Office 2010 then it requires installation of Office 2010 in different directory or folder to prevent overwriting of files of Office 2007. When you start the setup a blue screen comes on the screen asking for the preferred installation you want. If you want to run both versions of Office then choose 'customize' option, otherwise use 'upgrade' option. If you choose the 'customize' option then in the next screen it will be asked to provide another installation path for Office 2010. Select the path according to your choice and installation starts. There is another option for keeping both the versions together. You have to download a window installer patch setup customization file. This file has already been configured to keep and retain old office applications. All you have to do is to download the config.MSP file and copy it to the folder containing setup.exe and other installation files for Office 2010. After that you have to run a command 'SETUP/adminfile config.MSP' and you will have both the versions working together.


It must be noticed that although you can use both the versions of Office but the default program for presentations, spreadsheets will be Ms Office 2010 so you have to change manually by going to control panel if you wants opening of documents with Office 2007. Also, Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 cannot co exist at the same time because only version of Outlook works at any time so you have to work on Outlook 2010.
