Dear Experts,

I'm running a Windows 7 64 bit machine. I ran the setup for Office 2010 and it installed a 64 bit version of the program. Now I'm having compatibility issues when I try and Open my Access 2003 files.

I read in the help that I should choose the 32 bit version of office 2010, but when I install I'm not seeing an option for 32 bit, it just installs. How do I install the 32 bit version of Office.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
E

Right click on the office installer-select properties - click compatibility tab-select xp and then click ok. Now try installing office.

Can also try XP mode feature if the above does not work.

Just do not use the automatic setup or installation routine.

Open the folder Office14 on your DVD and enter the folder x86.

There you should find a setup.exe. Execute this one and the 32Bit-Version will be installed

Guys, I only seem to have the Setup.exe file and that's not giving me an option to set up 32 bit version.

Please help me out. I really need to set this up soon.

Thanks,
E

So you don't have two folders namedx64 and x86?

Where did you get your installation source? Is it a CD/DVD or some downloaded ISO file or other setup files?

If you only have one setup.exe then imho it is not possible for you to install this version in 32bit mode, because the installation sources are totally different from 32bit to 64bit and you cann't force a 64bit to install in 32bit mode...

Get a full DVD of Office2010 or download the 32bit setup files and try it againg
