Hi

I'm configuring a RDP server in my network. I would like to know if it is possible to configure multiple Office version for my users. I want some to work with 2010 and some working with 2013.

My RDP server is Windows 2008R2 SP1

Thank you

You are supposed to be able to run multiple Office versions but I recommend against it. Office can get confused with respect to clicking on documents and getting the correct version to open.

You CANNOT run two versions of Outlook on the same machine.

My counsel is to use the newest version of Office as it can do all the older ones do.

OK. The only bug is that you cannot run Power Pivot on 2013 STD but you can on 2010 STD

You would be better (in my opinion) to opt for the Pro version and have one version of Office on your server.

You could always stay for the time being with Office 2010 Pro.
