Move from Office 2010 32 to 64 bit

I'm running Office 2010 32 bit becasue Mobile Device center only beig compatible with 32 and I no longer have a need for that mobile device.

What is involved in installing 64 ? Can I do a side by side install of 64 or do I need to uninstall 32 and install 64 and transfer over all Outlook files ( especially adress book w/ contact photos ) ?

I think you'll find that the 64-bit version will throw a wobbly unless you uninstall the 32-bit version first.

I know that when I tried to install Office 2010 x64 alongside Office 2007 x32 I couldn't do it - I had to uninstall the 32-bit version first.

That said, the new install should find your Outlook profile and import it into the new installation.

However, I think it would be advisable to export your profile to a backup folder so that you'll be able to import it back if necessary.

Hmmm.... Doesnt sound all that beneficial for me to do the upgrade. I'm thinking though that I'd get better response from 64 than 32 and given that I'm now free of WMDC ?

I have used both versions, but didn't really notice a difference in performance with the 64-bit architecture, so I think a fast CPU and enough memory are probably more important than using 64-bit software, in terms of performance.

In the end, I opted to use MS Office 2010 32-bit mainly because there were problems using Outlook Connector in the 64-bit version.
