This system came with Windows 8 (not Pro). Did I read somewhere that the (not Pro) version is called Core? I went to the Microsoft Store and updated to Windows 8.1 (not Pro, of course).
I've encountered some issues with the computer, so I want to use the recovery disks I created and roll back to a clean factory installation. Then I want to put Windows 8.1 Pro onto the system, bypassing Windows 8.1 (not Pro). I know I need a Windows 8 Pro DVD and product key, which I have.
I don't know whether the issues I've encountered are self-inflicted or if software did it. Yesterday, I installed both the Avery Wizard for labels and OmniPage 18 Ultimate that includes PaperPort 14 and PDF Create 8. So, it's a tossup as to whether it was me, Avery or Nuance. At any rate, when I open Microsoft Word 2010, I get:
When I started having issues of PaperPort not loading when it should, I restored to before I installed Avery Wizard and OmniPage and that's when the Word error message started.
I'm also getting some type of error on shutting down that stays on the screen all of 1/2 a second and I don't get a chance to read it.
Although the system's running OK, I don't like those errors and I'm not so far into this system that it will be a huge inconvenience to reinstall my stuff. I may just go ahead and install Office 2013 instead of 2010, just to see if the kinks have been worked out of it.
So, do I have it right? I don't like second guessing myself, and certainly don't like to make things harder, so if my plans are incorrect, please let me know.
Thanks in advance . . .
