Microsoft Office Professional 10 and other programs already installed in my PC running Windows 7 family

Is that one of my other programs (e.g. Microsoft Office Professional 10) and printer is already installed in my PC running Windows 7 family will be affected with the free update of Windows 10 Home?

Hey Joan of arc.

The upgrade to Windows 7 or later will preserve my personal files, applications, and settings?

Yes, the upgrade to Windows 7 or a later version will preserve your personal files (documents, music, pictures, videos, downloads, Favorites, contacts, etc., applications (IE.) Microsoft Office, Adobe applications etc), games and settings (ie. passwords, dictionary, the application settings).

However, it is a good practice to back up most important data before the upgrade.

I hope that reply back for other queries, would be happy to help you.

  • Microsoft Office Professional 2010

    Microsoft Office Professional 2010 is corrupt. When I chose the icon nothing happens and all other commands and programs frozen.  I tried 'repair' Microsoft Office Professional 2010 with the feature programs and features in Control Panel, but it does not work.

    I guess I need to reinstall but Microsoft Office 2010 professional don't know how to do that.  Can someone help me?

    Thank you

    If you are going to try to get the key, you do not want to delete the version existing - at least not until you have extracted key information.

    If you just install the download, in other words, you have your license key, I think that the installation of the download will guide you.

    Most installation packages have the ability to detect existing software; Once the software is detected, the current program will be either deleted, ignored, or, where appropriate, will remind you to remove the existing program before proceeding with the new installation.

  • Microsoft Office Professional 2007 installs each time

    I bought Office Professional 2007 and installed on my Dell laptop.  Whenever I start one of the Office products, I get the message "preparing to install" then "Please wait while Windows configures Office Professional 2007". "  I uninstalled all Office products and computer, then re-installed Office.  Still the same problem. It's frustrating.  Any ideas how to fix?

    Hello world.

    First of all, through qualification, I am a gifted amateur with no great levels of knowledge of MS, but someone with some experience of this problem.

    I had a similar problem with MS Office Small Business 2007 on a Dell Studio 1555 laptop.

    In the end, after much trial and error, we have deleted the version of MS Works, which comes pre-installed on Dell laptops and the "Please wait while Windows configures Office Small Business 2007" stop immediately appear.

    The other interesting behavior was that when I chose one of the Office applications that Dell people call the "dock" - a contextual menu usually located at the top of the screen: the message set up never appeared.

    Yesterday, I installed Office 2007 SP2 and the message reappeared. Once more, the message appears only if I try and open the Office application in the start menu, quick launch or desktop. If I select the Office application from the dock, it works normally.

    So my suggestion as a short-term solution until that Dell and Microsoft are working on the problem:

    * Uninstall SP2 if cela which caused the problem
    * Remove MS Works if it is still on your Dell PC
    * Try to select the Office application from the dock instead of start menu, desktop or quick launch area

    Hope that helps someone!

  • Authenticity of Microsoft Office Professional 2010

    How can you ensure that they are buying a product Microsoft Office Professional "authentic"?  I want to buy one on Criagslist.   The owner says it is still wrapped in plastic and claims that it is new.  In addition, the owner said that I can install the program on my computer at home and its Wifi allows you to install the updates.

    Is a reference product # required to install updates?  And if yes, it would be that the program is a genuine product of microsoft?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I don't know if I can be of great help. To a large extent, trust your instincts. Given that you can I didn't look the part in your hands, you have to rely on the description and photos. Thus, the usefulness of the quality of the presentation (image quality and text, seals of authenticity and al are greatly reduced.

    There is the general rule - if it sounds too good to be true, it's probably. I wonder why someone has purchased a product and then not want or need, it reduced to the point of sale for refund. After all, it is still in its unopened packaging. I worry, somewhere, he "fell a truck." That is perhaps quite legitimate. But what are the chances. See the general rule.


    Just my thoughts. Of course, it is entirely your decision.

    Good luck.

  • Why some games and other programs need to be "run as Administrator" mode in 7RC which worked fine in normal mode on 7 beta and vista?

    Why some games and other programs must be run in Admin mode in 7RC which worked fine in normal mode on 7 beta and vista?

    An example of this is the game Guild Wars ( I had problems with this with random programs.

    Run as administrator may be required for some games and programs because they have a permission structure different in Vista in Windows 7 (Windows 7 and Vista are different in how to manage certain permissions).

    I suggest test you installation of the game in the program by clicking on the Setup file by clicking on "Run as administrator".

    This will sometimes solve this kind of situation because it installed the program in a State of high permission.

  • Can I install my Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 that I used on a new computer that I will be buying?

    I have Microsof Office Professional Edition 2003 that I used on my computer.  I want to get a new computer and I was wondering if I can install it on my new computer.  I have the disks to install, with a product key on the back of the package.  Is it safe to use on the new computer since it's always my computer?  In addition, this version is compatible with Windows 7?  (I used it on Windows XP).  Thank you!

    Hi DorisDowd,

    It seems that you have a retail copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2003. According to the license terms, it can be installed on a primary device and a portable device at a time.
    You can look here:

    So yes, you can still use it on a new computer if you do not buy one. It is also certainly compatible with Windows 7. Visit the Compatibility Center Windows 7 here:

    I hope this helps.
