Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 Trial will not install RRS feed

  • Question

  • The one-click installer fails with a compatibility error.  Tried XP thru Win 7 compatibility options and Run As Administrator all to no avail.  I just want to run Powerpoint on this Win 8 Tablet.  Any chance of getting that to work?

  • Just to let you know Office 2010 Professional Plus works for me. Make sure to uninstall the PowerPoint Viewer that came with the os install if you are installing a 64bit Office version. I don't think they jive together.

  • 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.

  • I did find an MSI after posting this.  It worked fine.
