Legal Download of Office 2010 ISO 64-Bit?


 Share

Question

Like the Windows 7 images, which can be downloaded to install using a USB, is there a legal place to download Office 2010ISO images 64-bit?

 

The netbook I just installed it on has ended up installing the 32-bit version, yet it's a 64-bit machine :s

 

If not, how can I force an install of 64-bit Office?

 

Thanks

If you have a DVD with both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions, you can force an install of the 64-bit version:

 

For people who want to install the 64-bit version Office 2010 programs on a computer that is running either 64-bit edition of Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008, the following instructions must be followed.

 

  1. If you were running Office 2010 Setup from the root folder, and you clicked Customize, click Close to exit Setup.
  2. When prompted, click Yes to cancel Setup, and then click Close.
  3. Go to the x64 folder on the Office 2010 disc, and double-click Setup.exe to run the 64-bit version of Setup.

Not enough info on the version of Office you already have installed and the license restrictions it imposes, as well as the options that are acceptable to you.

 

If I was to play dumb and provide an answer that's technically correct (but probably not what you want), I'd say MSDN.

 

What netbook do you have, that comes with a 64-bit OS?  If it's a netbook, how much RAM does it have?  What do you do that requires the 64-bit version of Office?

if you have a legit key you can just install it from the office website and it will download all the bits and bobs that you need to make it your full version.

Thanks for the replies.

I have a 64-bit system (two actually), so why not take full advantage of 64-bit programs?

I have a 3-licence Student Edition, but on the Acer (2Gb ram) netbook, it installed the 32-bit version by itself. I'm waiting on one more component for my new desktop then will be installing it there. Will probably stick to the DVD and force the 64-bit.

Probably won't bother reinstalling on the Netbook though, it's slow enough without extra work load.

Because the 64 bit version has some missing features that the 32 bit version has...so much so that microsoft recommends against installing the 64 bit version.

 

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee681792.aspx

 

There are very few people who actually need the 64 bit version, if you aren't running into the limits listed above, I would recommend against running the 64 bit version. 

 

things missing in outlook

things missing in office

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/choose-the-32-bit-or-64-bit-version-of-office-HA010369476.aspx

 

There are so many reasons not to go 64 bit....yet...perhaps in a later version.

Hmm, that's a good bit of food for thought.

I rarely use Office, only editing the odd spreadsheet, no presentations, but I do use Word a fair bit.

While the 64-bit seems to offer very little over the 32-bit, I have a couple of days to look into it.  I am a bit of a snob, so would prefer it and I don't use addins for Office.  The only feature I use is PDF printing, which I don't always need as I had Acrobat which installed a PDF printer anyway.

 

I wonder why they made significant differences and if they are looking to get rid of the 32-bit dependant features?

One gigantic limitation that I've run into is that 64bit PowerPoint supports far less integrated video formats, I could only get WMV to work. That alone was enough for me to stay with 32bit.

 

It's not like 32bit is any slower, all CPU's can still execute native 32bit code (which is what they do).

      LibreOffice 7.2.4
      by Razvan Serea



      LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers. You, too, can also get involved!

      Features:

      Writer is the word processor inside LibreOffice. Use it for everything, from dashing off a quick letter to producing an entire book with tables of contents, embedded illustrations, bibliographies and diagrams. The while-you-type auto-completion, auto-formatting and automatic spelling checking make difficult tasks easy (but are easy to disable if you prefer). Writer is powerful enough to tackle desktop publishing tasks such as creating multi-column newsletters and brochures. The only limit is your imagination.

      Calc tames your numbers and helps with difficult decisions when you're weighing the alternatives. Analyze your data with Calc and then use it to present your final output. Charts and analysis tools help bring transparency to your conclusions. A fully-integrated help system makes easier work of entering complex formulas. Add data from external databases such as SQL or Oracle, then sort and filter them to produce statistical analyses. Use the graphing functions to display large number of 2D and 3D graphics from 13 categories, including line, area, bar, pie, X-Y, and net - with the dozens of variations available, you're sure to find one that suits your project.

      Impress is the fastest and easiest way to create effective multimedia presentations. Stunning animation and sensational special effects help you convince your audience. Create presentations that look even more professional than the standard presentations you commonly see at work. Get your collegues' and bosses' attention by creating something a little bit different.

      Draw lets you build diagrams and sketches from scratch. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not try something simple with box and line diagrams? Or else go further and easily build dynamic 3D illustrations and special effects. It's as simple or as powerful as you want it to be.

      Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate into your existing database structures. Based on imported and linked tables and queries from MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft Access and many other data sources, you can build powerful databases containing forms, reports, views and queries. Full integration is possible with the in-built HSQL database.

      Math is a simple equation editor that lets you lay-out and display your mathematical, chemical, electrical or scientific equations quickly in standard written notation. Even the most-complex calculations can be understandable when displayed correctly. E=mc2.

      LibreOffice also comes configured with a PDF file creator, meaning you can distribute documents that you're sure can be opened and read by users of almost any computing device or operating system.

      Microsoft Weekly: Browser Wars, Office revamp, and Windows Ugly Sweater
      by Usama Jawad

      We are at the end of yet another week, which means that it is time to recap what happened in the world of Microsoft in the past few days. This week was quite eventful, especially if you're interested in news related to Microsoft Edge, Windows 11 builds, and a festive Windows Ugly Sweater. Read on to to check out the weekly digest for the week of November 28 - December 3.

      Browser Wars


      If you were wondering if you had traveled back to the early 2000s this week particularly when it came to your browser choice, that'd be understandable. Microsoft went a bit on the offensive this week by showing native prompts to consumer when they attempt to download Google Chrome via Microsoft Edge.

      These prompts refer to Chrome as a "so 2008" browser, and say that users should stick with Edge because it is apparently more trustworthy. While the messages shown by Microsoft are very casual and tonally light, it's got many of our readers as well as other people on social media forums wondering if the company is being too desperate.

      When it comes to allowing people to change the default browser in Windows 11 itself, Microsoft seems to be testing an easier process with build 22509 in the Dev Channel.

      Users can now utilize a single button to change the default browser for some extensions simultaneously. This is in stark contrast to the current generally available method in which you have to painstakingly change the default browser for each extension. It's not a massive improvement, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. That said, we don't know when, or if, this change will be made available to the general public.

      In related news, Edge Canary got a couple of decent features this week too. Tab search is now enabled by default, and those who utilize Xbox Cloud Gaming will be pleased to know that they can test a new capability called Clarity Boost during their streaming sessions. As the name suggests, this visually upgrades some aspects of the game-streaming experience and is only available on Edge Canary for now.

      Teams is Essential(s)
      Microsoft rolled out a new offer for small businesses who utilize Teams for online collaboration and communication. Dubbed Teams Essentials, this enables the target audience to use a variant of Teams that is more feature-rich than the free version with capabilities like meeting timings going up to 30 hours, 10GB of cloud storage, and the ability to host 300 people in a group called. Priced at $4 per user per month, Microsoft is calling Teams Essentials the "most affordable all-in-one solution", but on paper, it does sound like a difficult sell against Microsoft 365 Business Basic that offers even more advanced capabilities and software at the cost of $5 per user per month.

      That's not all in the world of Microsoft's Office-based offerings though. The company has started rolling out the Office visual revamp to more users. As it stands, the redesign is available for 50% of Current Channel users on Windows 10 and for everyone on Windows 11. It brings in some minor UI changes like Fluent Design and Dark Mode, but Microsoft plans on enabling other elements like the Mica background effect soon. You can trigger this revamp by clicking on the megaphone icon on the top-right corner of the title bar of your Office app and then switching on the toggle in the Coming Soon pane. The same toggle can also be used to return to the existing UI.

      Finally, if you use OneDrive on the web to manage photos, you'll be happy to know that the ability to add filters is now available. Another capability that will be coming later this month is the ability to annotate and markup photos.

      Windows Ugly Sweater and Windows 11 enhancements
      If you're a fan of Microsoft-branded merchandise, you should probably check out this year's Windows Ugly Sweater. The apparel is based on Minesweeper and retails for $74.99, excluding shipping costs. As a part of this holiday celebration, Microsoft is also pledging $100,000 to AbleGamers - a charity aimed at combating social isolation, foster inclusive communities, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.

      In other news, Windows 11 Insiders on the Dev Channel were treated to build 22509. This is a relatively major update that addresses some issues related to the Start menu and the Taskbar. New layout options have been added to the former while the ability to display the date and time on secondary monitors has been added to the latter. Other changes also include the migration of more Control Panel capabilities to the Settings app and tons of other bug fixes. Check out the complete change log here.

      Paint on the Windows 11 Dev Channel received an update too. It brings some UI elements more in line with the OS' design language and also fixed issues related to text boxes, languages, and more.

      In news related to Windows 11, AdDuplex survey data shows that the OS is now on 9% of PCs. This is a significant increase over the 5.1% figure reported back in October. That said, if you're utilizing Windows 11 and are not happy with some of the changes, do check out ThisIsWin11 which features a bunch of utilities for customization.

      Dev Channel


      PowerToys introduced a presentation mode utility in version 0.51.0, which was then followed by a stability update version 0.51.1 Halo Infinite campaign, Aliens: Fireteam Elite, and much more are coming to Xbox Game Pass this month Sea of Thieves Season Five is now live with loot burying, cannon rowboats, and much more Under the spotlight


      This week, I argued that Windows Update should show more information about patches by default. As it stands, users are forced to find Microsoft's KB articles and change logs, or rely on third-party news outlets like Neowin to find out what's new in each update. This information should be natively integrated - but still optional to view - into Windows. Check out my thoughts on the topic here.



      We also discussed the top 10 changes that people are requesting for Windows 11 on the Feedback Hub. Most are related to the Taskbar and the Start menu, but one demands to remove the TPM requirement too. We have also outlined Microsoft's responses to all the feedback items. It's definitely an interesting list and you should check it out here.

      Logging off
      Our most interesting news item of the week is not related to Microsoft but is definitely worth highlighting. Eccentric entrepreneur Elon Musk has seemingly taken a leaf out of Apple's book and announced a $50 "Cyberwhistle". The collectible item is made of stainless steel and its design is inspired by Tesla's Cybertruck. The Cyberwhistle went out of stock hours after Musk's Twitter reveal but you can still check out the dedicated product page here.

      Visual revamp for Office desktop apps on Windows now available for more users
      by Usama Jawad

      Back in June, Microsoft announced that it is revamping the Office desktop apps for Windows. The idea was to bring the apps in line with Windows 11's design language, even on Windows 10. In the following weeks, the company began rolling out the refresh to those on the Beta Channel, and in September, this extended to Current Channel users, but only as a preview. Today, Microsoft has announced that it is speeding up the pace of rollout.

      If you're on Windows 10 and running Office version 2110 and build 14527.20226 or later, there's a possibility that the visual update will be available to you. This is because Microsoft has made the update automatically available to 50% of all users on the Current Channel. Meanwhile, if you're on Windows 11, the revamp will necessarily be available to you. In both cases, you might need to restart your Office apps to receive the visual refresh.

      As a recap, the visual revamp includes Office themes that now match with your Windows theme (including Dark Mode) with the Quick Access Toolbar hidden by default to make the interface simpler. You'll also notice Fluent Design elements. You can simply click on the megaphone icon on the top-right corner of the title bar of your Office app and then switch on the toggle in the Coming Soon pane to enable the visual updates. The same toggle can also be used to return to the existing UI.

      The Coming Soon pane is available for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. If you enable the new UI via any of the aforementioned apps, it will also become available in Access, Project, Publisher, Visio, and Outlook. Although the dedicated Coming Soon pane is also present in the Outlook app, it doesn't really do anything.

      The revamp is currently available automatically to 50% of Current Channel users running Microsoft Office Home & Student 2021, Microsoft Office Home & Business 2021, Microsoft Office Professional 2021, or Microsoft Office Personal 2021. Here are the known issues:

      Microsoft has requested users to submit feedback about the refresh via Help > Feedback and to use the #OfficeRefresh hashtag so that it's easier for the company to spot your feedback.
