Recover Installed Application


  • Is there a way for us to recover and installed application? For instance, I previously installed MS Office 2010, now I lost my CD installer. When I installed the Developers Preview, i am fully aware that I will have to probably install again those apps. But I usually found then in C:\Windows.old\Program Files\Microsoft Office\(application name) every time I install a new OS. However this time when I try to run the file, it says : The operating system is not presently configured to run this application. I was hoping if there is a way for me to fix this. I'm trying to find my CD installer, but it's just gone. We just moved in to a new house, probably it was totally misplaced somewhere. Please help. CHeers!!

  • Hello ninjai808,

    Do you have your product ID for Office 2010? If so you can download or order the installation media here. I can't think of anyway to get Office 2010 working again besides reinstalling it.

    Hope this helps.
