Windows 8 and MS Office Home and Student 2010 Compatibility...

I am looking at buying the HP P7-1414 desktop.  I currently own MS Office Home and Student 2010.  Will my MS be compatible with the Widows 8 on the P7?

Hello celliottii!
Welcome to the forum! That’s a great question. While I was pretty confident that Office 2010 would be compatible with Windows 8, I still wanted to make sure for you. I checked with Microsoft and verified that it indeed is compatible. Please feel free to reach out if you have any more questions!
Thanks for posting!

  • ITunes10.5.2  and MS Office Home and Business 2010 (running on MS Windows 7 32-bit SP1): can you help me please?

    I've a PC running W7 32-bit SP1 and Office Home and Business 2010. The issue is that iTunes last version (10.5.2) doesn't work with Outlook 2010 and vice versa. With iTunes installed Outlook 2010 doesn't open itself.
    No error message, but the program doesn't open.
    I tried the restore, but nothing even so.
    Either-or: or iTunes or Outlook. It's not possible. This is a seriou bug
    I've really tried  all suggestions found in this bolg, but in vain.
    Can someone from Apple help me to fix this bug please?

    Hi guys, thanks for your responses.
    What is this vboxnetflt for? Which modules are the essential modules for virtualbox? What I mean is: do those nice features like mouse point integration, full screen supportment etc... rely on vboxnetflt and vboxnetadp?
    What I have in my configuration file is:
    #MOD_BLACKLIST=() #deprecated
    MODULES=(vboxdrv vboxnetflt vboxnetadp)
    I think vboxnetadp is used for networkiing. and vboxnetflt sounds like network filtering stuff. Can someone please confirm me? I think the problem was the sequence of upgrading. Firstly it updated the kernel and then installed the new version of virtualbox. I think if it could install the new version of virtualbox first and then the kernel, it would go without any problem, just my opinion as I said.
    Let's keep tracked on this. Maybe someone will find a solution before virtualbox developers :-)

  • Windows 8.1, Office Home and Business 2013: This file can't be previewed because of an error in Microsoft ........... previewer

    Previewer for office files is not working from the same application: i.e. can't preview Excel files when attempting to open one from Excel, same with Word and PowerPoint. I can preview all files from Outlook, and, funny, I can preview files other than Excel
    from the Excel previewer, files other than Word from the Word previewer, etc.
    I can preview all files from Explorer.
    I've looked at previous threads and there are some with the same problem dating back to 2009, all UNSOLVED.
    This is a new lap top, new Windows 8.1 and just-installed Office 2013, and 8.1 and Office have these persistent glitches.
    Very frustrating to say the least.

    Hi CALQ59,
    Unfortunately, the article you were referred to, by Melon, is simply an article that is explaining a behaviour (some would say bug) in Windows and the Office previewer system. There appears to be a limitation that occurs whereby, if you have an instance
    of the Office application open, for which you would like to preview something in an Explorer window, it will not be able to preview the file. To be able to preview the file, this article states that you "must open another instance of the program to preview
    the document." So, either open another instance of the Office application in question or quit any instances of the Office application in question and then preview the file of that same type in your Explorer windows to your heart's content. That is of
    course until the next time you are working on an Office document of some sort and the previewer has a hissy fit!
    This is an incredibly lame bug/limitation that exists in Windows/Office. It's of no current commercial concern to Microsoft to fix it, so we just have to work around it until the problem bubbles to the surface of the development team's bug-fix to-do list,
    if ever.
    Unfortunately, the way software development is going these days it's all moving towards providing Minimum Viable Product (MVP - Yes, this is a term software developers use) for the same cost as a fully functional product. The bar on software QA is falling,
    but the price isn't.

    Just to be clear, Office 2010 is for Windows.  Office 2011 is for Mac.  If you actually are trying to install Office 2010, you'll need to have installed Windows on your Mac either through Boot Camp or in a virtual machine.

  • I just bought MS Office Home and Student 2010 to replace Starter version but I can't find it and Starter is still there.

    I have an HP Pavilion g7-1070us Notebook PC Running Windows 7. I came with Office Starter preloaded. Today I bought Office Home and Student 2010 and downloaded it online (or so I think). Now I can't find the 2010 version and the Starter version is still on my computer just as before. I contacted MicroSoft online and they suggested I either I install Internet Explored 9 or contact my browser (Foxfire) for help.

  • Trouble installing Microsoft Office home and student 2010

    I'm new to Apple, i'm trying to insatl Microsoft office home and student 2010 onto my mac but it keeps saying "you can't open the application "setup.exe" because microsoft windows does not support the application"
    could anyone help?
    Kind regards

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    It looks like you are trying to install Office 2010 on OS X. That's not possible because that version is for Windows, so you have to install Windows on your Mac. As you are going to use it only for Microsoft Office, download Parallels, VMware Fusion or VirtualBox, and install Windows on a virtual machine.
    Another option is to purchase Office for Mac >

    got back the test email from Microsoft after setting up Outlook....Then when I rebooted the system, this same loop action started ...
    I have uninstalled this at least 4 times, searched for anything with ties to Microsoft office, and uninstalled it..Then did a New Clean Install...Still getting this key Code question every time I open up a Office program....So, I am saying without a doubt,

  • Reinstalling Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 - OS 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium on Dell Inspiron

    To start at the, that's not fair, that goes all the way back to March 24th!
    My hard drive has been wiped clean twice now...First time was not by MY choice...the guy from India just talked me through it, with no warning of what was going to be the result.  What a nightmare! 
    This 2nd time when I have "retrieved" my files from my external hard documents are there....just can't open them!  
    Following messages when opening Word or Outlook:
    "Please wait...."etc. "Configuration in Progress Microsoft Office Home and Business".... which takes forever!
    "Your AutoCorrect file: c:\users\Tosi\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office\MSO1033.acl, could not be saved.  the file may be read only, or you man not have permission to modify the file."
    "Word cannot open existing file (Normal)
    In tyring to open Outlook...
    Big Red cirlce with an X in it:  Could not install the custom actions.  The form Cache file c:\users\Tosi\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Forms\FRMCACHE>DAT is not valid.  Contact your administrator.
    The same message as Word  "Your AutoCorrcet....etc....MSO1033.acl ...etc. "
    I have tried to change luck.  How to I get FULL control over my own computer?  Please!
    When I do finally get Outlook open, nothing is in there.  I looked for my Outlook Data folder and I see that my .pst data file is in 5 places, yet it is not connecting with Outlook.  No mail, address or calendar are in there. (to back
    track...the first time I retrieved my stuff off the hard drive everything worked)
    Microsoft has promissed numerous times to assit me to resolve these problems through very lovely emails but no one has called to follow up and help me.  I really need help and I am running out of patience. 
    Soon I will be saying "Goodbye Microsoft!  Goodbye Dell!  Hello Apple!" 
    Help please! 
    Thank you,

    As per your description, seems the installation of Office have got completely corrupted. I would suggest you to completely remove Office 2010 from your computer and then reinstall it.
    For how to remove/uninstall Office from your computer, I would suggest you to use Microsoft Fix It tool:
    After uninstalling Office, please restart your computer then try a reinstallation. If you don't have the Office 2010 installation source or DVD, please go to this website to get Office 2010 installation package: (you might need to provide the product key of Office 2010)
    Hope this helps. Thanks a lot for your patience.

  • Office Home and Student 2010

    I purchased a new laptop and received a produce key for Office Home and Student.  During the trial version I had access to Outlook.  Once the trial version expired and I entered the product key I received when I purchased my laptop but no longer have access to Outlook. So, I guess I have to purchase Outlook and Publisher separately?? 

    True, I've heard of that. Unless you saved the email server side, the items are locked until you purchase. I suggest contact 1-800-Microsoft as that is a 'feature' of their specific software.
    Since importing your emails is important to you, for the future I would suggest using an IMAP compatible service. A free, well known one is This will allow you to keep a copy of your emails server-side in the event of a system crash or other event. Outlook is compatible with it.
