Office 2010 build 4730 leaks to the web

An internal build of the upcoming Microsoft Office 2010 has leaked to the web according to Wzor. The build comes in at a staggering 3.51GB which is significantly larger than the public beta build which was at 749mb; the leaked build is tagged with the build number 14.0.4730.1007

There is no information as to why the build is so much larger but one speculation is that it may include debugging software. Another possibility is that the code may not be packed for media release which would make the build much larger than the compressed format released to the general public.

The screenshot does show that there does appear to be more applications in the leak than the beta that was released to the general public which may also be why the build is significantly larger; currently both X64 and X86 builds are circulating the web.

Thanks for the tip torrentthief

I haven't tried to activate it yet. It didn't ask me for keys nor for activation over the past 3 days.

It does show me that it needs to activate. I will see what it needs and let people know. Anyone else want to chime in on activation with public keys? I have other keys I can't disclose to try from MS.

The new build runs faster at initial startup than the previous official public beta.
Also unlike the Mondo build it allows you to install parts or two version of Office. Which is nice.

Be sure to remove all links to Beta - not just Office. The live Add-in, Outlook Connector, and any Beta Office software.

Outlook runs much smoother and less delays in the IMAP fetching than in the Public Beta. I installed the Office Pro. Plus and it looks like about 2.79Gig installed. That doesn't include Visio and Project pro.

All in all it seems very stable for the past few days now.

Not sure if it's MS or Adobe but 64bit Acrobat Pro still won't recognize 64bit Outlook as a default mail client. 32bit is okay though.

Oh well can't have everything. I could just install the 32bit version and call it a day NAH..

the only important question here is : " When will this build be available on TEchnet ?"

It's already released on the net. Technet is always behind the game.

I was looking for HD one. 1920 x 1080 like is it

I am sorry but I have't found the wallpaper of this size, only 1440x900

Anyone could post his thoughts about this? is it stable enough to install for someone who's working with office for his studies?

More importantly, will it activate?

Wouldn't that opinion apply to the old mondo build, and not really this one?

To people who have tried it out: are there still horribly low-resolution icons scattered throughout or is that fixed in this build?

Install is so big because it has everything office will offer in one package:


also this build is first that "droped" beta from start menu and it already has RTM license. So we are geting "close" to final product.

edit: also send smile application is removed already.

And, that screenshot proves what?

It proves that the installation is new. I don't need anything else to prove that the new build is real! :-D

xiphi, did you not read this above in the article? It would appear from the screenshot that this new leak was installed over the public beta, which is why the newly installed applications are highlighted.

I installed this one yesterday. Works great and it is real. This build has all possible Office combinations. You can choose upon installation.

Notice how it doesnt say Beta?

It would be a less-than-a-minute job to get rid of the BETA-tag from the shortcuts.

IT PROVES THAT:
1). the leak is no BS
2). the leak contains all of those programs, and
3). you can make seriously stupid questions.
