Last week I got some project from one of my trusted freelance editor. The project was important and I was supposed to complete it in a week time. I was quite happy with the offer as it was really interesting and was related to one of my favorite subject on sociology.

Being working on my Windows 7-based Hp computer I realized that my Office 2003 is not up to the mark and I should get it replaced with the new Office 2010. Things were never easy for me when it comes to install and activate any new software application on my system. I drained my knowledge to clad on the application software but went nowhere. I searched on the Google to get some relevant solution for the Office 2010 installation issue.

After searching a few pages I got a webpage, where it was mentioned to get your answer. I submitted my question “How to Install Office 2010 in Windows 7”, and with no delay I came to a step-by-step solution, but my Adam and Eve was not with the site. I wanted to know the authenticity of the website and then I came across a toll-free number which was mentioned on the same page. I dialed that number with my mobile to get some Tech support for MS Office 2010 and in a few seconds my call was picked by a technician. He took some details and then asked me to insert the Microsoft Office 2010 installation disk or USB drive into the DVD drive/ USB port respectively. I used the DVD drive I had.

Afterwards, the technician wanted to have the remote access of my HP computer, to which I agreed. Next, what I could see was next to dream. The mouse pointer was moving on its own; the Office set-up file was downloaded and run to install the program and later on it was activated using the product activation key, which I offered him over the chat window. Indeed it was an ‘and some experience. I thanked the guy and paid the bucks. It was a nominal price, which I hadn’t imagined.

Here I am mentioning the steps which I followed to install Office 2010 in Windows 7:

Uninstalling previous version

a. Click the “Start” orb, type “uninstall a program” (without quotes) and select “Uninstall a program” from the results windows.

b. Click any 32-bit Microsoft Office product in the list of installed programs. Click “Uninstall” to remove the product. In case you are not sure about 32-bit or 64-bit, presume it is 32-bit.

Installing MS Office 2010

a. Load the CD/DVD drive with Microsoft Office 2010 installation disk. Close the “Setup” window, if it displays.

b. Navigate to the “Start” orb and select “Computer” to launch Windows Explorer.

c. Click your CD/DVD drive letter on the left-hand pane, and double-click the “x64” folder on the disc. Double-click Setup.exe” in that folder to launch the 64-bit installer.

d. Enter the prescribed Product Key when asked for, and click “Continue.” The product key is located on your installation disk or the Office 2010 paperwork.

e. Check the box next to “I accept the terms of this agreement” and click “Continue.”

f. Click “Install Now” and the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office 2010 will automatically install.

g. Click “Close” to exit the installer as soon as the process is finished.

Next moment I restarted my hp computer. I went through my Word and Excel file. All were looking great under the new version of Office. The new features of Office 2010 were extremely flawless and simple to use. I wouldn’t have finished the project in time if the problem had remained with the installation.
