Hi it was intended to show the 32 bit install on a 64 bit machine.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14 is where my 2010 32 bit MS Office files are stored on my PC running Win7 SP1 64 bit OS.
Outlook.exe is version 14.0.6109.5005.
 
I do not have the 64 bit version of 2010 Office installed.

You gotta know that at 74, I HATE changes.  I was doing just fine with XP but a new venture forced me to get Win 7.  Anyway, Best Buy installed the cheaply version (student) and today I bought Outlook 2010.  The label on the box says 32 bit/x-64 so I guess is good for either one.  My laptop is a 64 bit machine.

The reason for asking the question is that I want to write a script to open the program using hot keys but I need to know the location of the executable file.  With all this information you have given me, I should be able to find it.  Many thanks, I'll get back.

camtz--You are most welcome.
Most MS 2010 Office  installation disks contain both the 32 and 64 bit versions.  The 32 bit version is actually recommended even when your operating system is 64 bit!
