Windows 7: When Does Beta Office 2010 expire?

When Does Beta Office 2010 expire?

And is it necessary to uninstall before installing a bought copy of 2010?

mmmm....just thought of potential problem...

My Office 2003 and XP and 2007 are UPGRADE versions.

I have never beta'd before, simply upgraded Office as I went. This would be the first time I have to uninstall and back track so far.....do I (CAN I) have to install Office 97, upgrade to XP, 2003 and 2007??

You may use the Beta up until Oct 31, 2010
It is not necessary to uninstall, you can do an upgrade from 2007 to 2010

If you have Office 2003, install office 2007 (the installer will automatically upgrade it to 2007 if you select 'upgrade')

" My Office 2003 and XP and 2007 are UPGRADE versions"

....so HOW do I install Office 2003......as my XP, 2003, 2007 are ALL upgrades from my initial FULL Office 97....

I am sorry to be so thick...I don't really understand how I can install a full version of anything but Office 97 as all my subsequent Office's have been upgrades and I trashed my 2007 install in order to beta 2010.

So the ONLY version I have of Office on my PC is beta 2010, all my media is upgrade EXCEPT 97, so I think I didn't THINK through trashing 2007 and beta-ing 2010.

As I understand it, Office 2010 doesn't have upgrade versions, so you can start with a full install of 2010, no "upgrades" needed. You would only have to go back and do 97>XP>2003>2007 if you're NOT looking to get the 2010 retail.
