    Will MS Office 2010 work on Windows 8?


    Hi, I'm new here so apologies if this is common knowledge.

    Will MS Office install/run on Windows 8? I put Win 8 Consumer Preview on my laptop and my MS Office 07 doesn't run on it.

    Thanks in advance

    I tried loading windows 8 using the option to save all my files. It worked fine until I loaded Office 2010. Then after reboot, the PC will freeze up, sometime doing an automatic reboot and sometimes no reboot. reboots seldom get through a new login and freeze again.

    I completely reloaded windows 8, this time with the "keep nothing" option. works great until I load office 2010. Then, same symptoms as brfore.

    I thought I would give this forum a try brfore opting for windows 7 again.

    I did eventually get it to work. Deleted Office and reinstalled it and it work no worries.

    Just put 2010 on my slate (windows 8 pro), and that works great too.

    Office 2010 works perfectly on my system. (Despite my hatred of Metro I do use Windows8 as my only OS on my main office machine.)
    I have 64bit Windows 8 but use 32bit Office, the same config as I had on Win7. Microsoft recommended using 32bit on both 64and32 bit Windows 7 for the widest compatibility. The only advantage of 64bit office was for really enormous spreadsheets.

    Thanks for the testimonials, but I verified that it is the office 2010 (maybe I'm in the wrong forum). I uninstalled office 2010 and the reminder of the system is solid. I wonder if the fact that I have a quad processor CPU is part of the problem.

    Is there a more appropriate forum for this problem?
