Is Microsoft Office 2010 fully compatible with running on Server 2008 R2?

Is Microsoft Office 2010 fully compatible with running on Server 2008 R2?

In the past I have installed Office 2010 on Server 2008 R2 but have then had problems with Office 2010 applications crashing within the Server 2008 R2 operating system.

It looks like you need a version which allows cal's.

Then what do I have to do to get CAL's for Microsoft Office 2010 Professional 64-bit version?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I don't know what ArmyGroo is referring to.

If you have had problems with the past,, I would suspect your install of Windows had issues.

You DO NOT want to run Office x64 at all UNLESS you have a need to use SUPER LARGE spreadsheets.  Using 64 bit versions can cause problems because there are a lot of incompatible 32 bit plugins that won't work.

Installing on a server any version of Office should work fine.  PROVIDED you are not installing it on a terminal server/remote desktop server.  If you do, THEN you NEED a volume license version of Office.  There are no "Office" CALs - you need one copy for CAL on the Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Server.

leew,

Are you saying that I should install Office 2010 32 bit on Server 2008 R2?

Will this help fix the issues that I am having with  the Office applications crashing while they are running on Serverr 2008 R2?

Absolutely.  Unless you have a SPECIFIC compelling reason to do otherwise.  And just because it's x64 doesn't mean it's a compelling reason.

I don't know what issues you're having and sometimes you could just have a bad install of server and/or corrupted Windows in some way, shape, or form.  But you shouldn't assume it's a problem with Office on Server that is "common" as it's not common.
