Office 2010 professional plus installation issue in Win 8 developer preview.

    Question

  • Hi,

     

    I am using windows 8 developer preview and trying to install office 2010 professional plus. it starts the process of installation and gives me a bar that says extracting files and after that nothing shows up. No error message or window pops up after that. I have tried different compatibility modes as well but issue remains the same. What can be done for this issue?

  • Did you installed any other program before installing office?

    Try update Windows and restart it.

    Go to control panel in metro-style and then refresh your PC.

  • Hi Manish,

    if you have a WDP that's running well, and is updated, having issues of Compatibility with Office10 are quite unlikely. Its probably a bad Office disk, or download. You may also try download & install of a Trial copy of Office10.

    This is a known issue. Microsoft app compatibility team is aware of it. Any version of Office (trial or retail) which uses Click-To-Run installation method won't install on Windows 8. Alternative is to use a version of Office 2010 that uses standard MSI (Windows Installer) technology.
