    I would say yes, it was because of the bit-ness. Even though I had uninstalled Office 2010 64 bit before installing Office 2013 64 bit I was still prompted to uninstall another program because it was only 32 bit and incompatible. I think it was the Microsoft Access Database Engine, that was installed with Microsoft Streets and Trips.I think that was it, whatever it was I uninstalled it and then Office 2013 64 bit installed fine.
    That was with me either. It required me to uninstall 2010 64-bit before installing 2013 32-bit.

    So I tried to other machine with clean WRP. But Microsoft refuse to install for second attempt with the same request.
    Haven't tried again.

    Microsoft Office 2013 Preview: 9/10

    I kept MSO 2010 x86 side by side with MSO 2013 Preview x86 in my Windows 7 installation, but every time I switch between them an annoying configuration window appears and took about 3 minutes to conclude. Better let Win7 with MSO 2010 and Win8 with MSO 2013.

    Yeah, I'm dual booting with Windows 7 + Office 2007, so I just installed office 2013 by itself in Windows 8. There was no need to run two versions of office on my Windows 8 install.

    There shouldn't be a problem running them together on the same computer/Windows. I am running it in Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8dp. I just added back MSO 2007, so there is now running in harmony MSO 2007, 2010, 2013.

    Any issues when opening them, like the configuration window mentioned above?

    Nothing on my end. I get the standard Word, Excel, Access, and etc. windows. Of course it isn't the same as in other versions of MSO.

    Good to know, thanks.

    Haven't gotten around to installing 2013 yet, was planning to install it beside 2010 and compare for a while.

    I finally did a custom install, rather than a default one, and now 2010 and 2013 coexist quite nicely. Took a while to get used to the flat interface and glaring whiteness of 2013, but I do like the new options and graphical previews available now in Word and Excel. I don't use Outlook at home, but did set up a POP account and it seemed to work well. I immediately set the default save to be local rather than the cloud. Not quite comfortable with SkyDrive yet. Maybe sometime in the future...

    Yes, I've always been a fan of the ribbon menuing system since I was introduced to it at work in 2007. Seems to be cleaned up a little bit and of course more options.

    I tried to install it in Vista, but it came up with a error message saying, I needed a superior operating system. So i went and installed it in win 8 with no problems.

I've just received an email from Microsoft with a link to download Office 2013 RTM Evaluation (I'm currently evaluating The Preview). I'm downloading it now, but I'm confuse, it doesn't say if I have to uninstall the Preview first or install on top of it? Can anyone enlighten a little fellow? :)
Last summer, when office 2013 preview first came out, I opted for the binary download. I believe it was an exe file and I still have a copy of the download. But yesterday I opened up OneNote, I got prompted for an activation key. The only thing that I think might have triggered that, was that I...

Well, one of my prayers has been answered. You can disable the animations and the smooth typing "feature" of the Office 2013 Preview. When you can type fast, that smooth animation appears like a delay and the cursor is unable to keep up with your typing. Very annoying. It's a registry change...
Just wondering, what is the evaluation period for Office 2013 Customer Preview? Thanks in advance :D
