    Want to install Offc 2010 Pro 32 bit on win 8.1


    I have Office Pro 2010 on my 32bit XP Pro desktop. If possible, I'd like to uninstall Offc Pro and install it on my laptop that is running Win 8.1. Can this be done?

    My Office Pro is a valid download with key but I only downloaded the 32 bit version and have changed the key one time as the result of a support call to MS soon after installing it on my XP machine.

    Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated,
    Jeff

    Sure. 32bit office works on both 32 and 64bit, and 2010 runs flawlessly.

    It will work. I would install it on the 8 machine, then uninstall it on XP before you activate it on the 8 machine. That way you can ensure that it was installed correctly before removing it from XP
