Windows 7: Office 2010 Upgrade from 2007

Office 2010 Upgrade from 2007

Hello,

I'm curious if anyone else is experiencing the same issue that I'm having. When I go to upgrade users in my corporation, it take anywhere from 45 mins to an hour, just for the upgrade. We are installing the package over the network. If i copy the install files to my local system and run the setup, i really don't see much of a difference.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi there
sounds wrong to me -- 45 mins to install ANY version of office via a LAN or not sounds definitely wrong - upgrades though generally DO take longer than clean install due to the complexity of the process.

Might be better to uninstall office 2007 and install office 2010 from scratch. Standard company templates etc you've probably got on a LAN anyway for your users.

Installing Office 2010 (X-64) from scratch (admittedly on a W8 rather than W7 system - but that shouldn't make a difference - was trialling W8) using a small not very powerful Netbook took exactly 7 minutes -- that was the PRO version with OUTLOOK, ACCESS, EXCEL, WORD, POWERPOINT, PUBLISHER etc.

Something definitely sounds crazy with your installation.

(Note with mine that was the BASE install only -- it took a while to download and install SP1 together with all the fixes -- now if your install is updating these automatically then since is the longest part of the process the time will probably be the same - assuming you are getting the fixes via Windows Update).

Cheers

Thanks for your thoughts on this issue. I will look into this more and try your idea about the uninstall of office 2007 first to see what the difference is.

Thanks
