Windows 7: Difficulty installing Office 2010 64-bit

Windows 7 64-bit
Difficulty installing Office 2010 64-bit


I have a 64-bit Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 64-bit installed on it. I want to reinstall Office 2010 (Home & Business) in 64-bit mode instead of 32-but mode that it automatically installed in.

I bought a Product Key code for Office 2010 with the new Laptop, which I bought about a month ago, new.

I have uninstalled Office 2010 and everything else mentioned at 64-bit editions of Office 2010

I also ran the relevant Fixit from How do I uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if I cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?

I am still unable to install Office 2010 64-bit from the download file I was directed to when I registered my product key card. It defaults to installing in 32-bit mode.

Iíve also installed a demo in the hope that that might solve the problem Ė it didnít.

Iím uncertain whether the download setup file doesnít provide the 64-bit option or offer it and report that there are files preventing the 64-bit install.

I'm desperate, because I have to be able to edit these big Excel files...

Can you point me to a download that will work - or advise me on what else I need to uninstall in order for the install to give me the option to install the 64-bit version?

Thanks very much.

Even Microsoft discourages the use of Office 2010 x64 unless you are a developer. If you aren't, don't both, as the x64 version brings you only minor issues over the completely stable x86 version. Save yourself some time and grief.

Lots of plug-ins to Outlook won't work with the 64-bit release. This is why MS even suggests sticking to 32-bit.
