What version of Windows 7 are you running?
Windows Virtual PC is a feature of Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, and Windows 7 Enterprise, that allows you to run multiple Windows environments such as Windows XP Mode from your Windows 7 desktop.

To run Windows Virtual PC your computer has to have the Intel VT or AMD-V features enabled in the BIOS.

I have Office 2010 installed on my Windows 7 virtual machine. It works just fine.

So then just like any real machine, uninstall the version of Office that exists on the virtual machine, connect up a CD to the virtual machine and install Office 2010 from CD (DVD). Alternatively, copy the ISO file to the virtual machine and install it that way.

It is just a machine and functions like a real machine, so Office will work fine.

Installing Office 2010, or any other version, in a virtual machine (VM) is pretty easy. The tricky part can be getting the installer software connected to the virtual machine. Most folks mount the CD/DVD drive with the Office disc inserted, to the virtual machine, from the virtual machine's property sheet. I copy the disc's contents to a USB drive and connect the USB drive to the VM. Before all of this will be a possibility, Windows has to be installed and configured as a VM on the computer.
