Is it possible to install both Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Office 2013 on the same PC running Windows 7 Professional and another PC running Windows 8 ?
I need to perform some Microsoft Excel compatibility tests with each version of Office and do not wish to install,un-install  and re-install unless I have to.

Thanks,

Roger

hi,
yes, you can install different version of ms office on same pc, but you have to follow installation order, otherwise error occur.
First install earlier version:

Install Microsoft Office 2010 first then
Install Microsoft Office 2013.

Yes you can do this, but not with Outlook. You can only have one Outlook. Then when people do this, associations sometimes open the wrong version, so associations do not always work.

I do what you do with VMware and virtual machines. I have Office 2013 complete running in Windows 8 and Office 2010 complete running in Windows 7 on the same machine at the same time.

Thanks or that, as I am only interested in Excel, I will be able to exclude Outlook in the installs.

Thanks for the update and you should be fine with just Excel.
