Windows 7: Create Office 2010 ISO with both architectures

Create Office 2010 ISO with both architectures


I have separate media for x86 and x64 editions of Office 2010, but I'm wondering if there is a way to combine the two together so I have the option during install as to which one I wish to install?

Any help on this would be great.

Thank you.

Hi duckz & welcome to the Forum.

Why do you need that option when you have that already, you can select either one & then install it. I cannot see how you could combine the 2 that you are asking about. You cannot have both the 32 bit (x86) & the 64 bit version of Office on the one computer, it wont work.

Microsoft recommend installing the 32 bit version for all but the most demanding of installation. Examples of those demanding installations are very large spreadsheets or big databases.

I have the 32 bit version of Office 2013 Pro installed on my Windows 7 64 computer & I have never had any problems.

The ISOs for Office aren't bootable so it's trivial to put both on the same disk. In fact, the ISOs I have for Office 2010 came from MS with both 32 and 64 versions on the same disk.

You can create folders named x64 and x86, extract the 32 bit files from your 32 bit ISO and copy them into the x86 folder. Extract and copy the files from the 64 bit ISO to the x64 folder. Once you have those 2 folders created, you can then burn them to a disk or create an ISO containing those 2 folders. When you wish to install you would simply open a command prompt to the DVD drive and do a CD to the folder of the version you wanted to install, then run setup.exe from that folder.

You could also get a little more fancy and create a batch file that either prompts you for which version to install or allows you to pass in the desired bitness (32 or 64) as a parameter, then automatically switches to that folder and runs setup.exe.

As Ranger stated, MS itself recommends installing the 32 bit version of Office anyway. Here's an article explaining the pros and cons of installing the 64 bit version:

Other than for testing purposes, I always install the 32-bit version of Office.
