I have installed Office 2010 Professional on my Dell XPS8300. I'm pretty sure I selected the 32 bit version but I want to veryify this. Where do I look to see what version I have?

The reason I ask is that Windows Updater wants to install this update: Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB2510690) 32-bit Edition. I would just go ahead and let it install EXCEPT that the distribution DVD indicates that SP1 is included and I don't want to create a problem.

Suggestions?

Open Word, Excel or any product of Office and click File -> Help. On the right next to the version number you'll see if it's 32 or 64 bit version.

Also, in the Help screen above, click on the Additional Information link and it will tell you if SP1 is already installed or not. It would seem not to be if Updater wants to update it. ... Thinkpads_User

If updater wants to install a 32-bit update then you HAVE TO HAVE installed the 32 bit version. It will never try and install the 32 bit update on a 64 bit install

Thanks to all; I should have looked there myself. I'm still getting used to Win7!
