Windows 7: Announcing Office 2010 Beta Availability

I want to keep my Office 2007 running as Production and also test Office 2010.
Would the best way to do this be to install it on a virtual machine?

Setup Outlook in manaual configuration.
I researched this issue further and the Itunes Addin is missing from Outlook, so when you launch Itunes, the Itunes add in is missing so when Itunes tries to call Outlook it can't make the call. Hence you get no mail client set to default. I sent a the data to the Office Beta team.

Ken there have been a lot of issues with Kas during the windows 7 rollout. I suggest using Microsoft Security essentials.

I always turn off email scanning. It's redundant. I'm careful and if I do click on something with a virus, the real time scanner should catch it.

Note to those of us that have been running the Tech Preview:

There is no upgrade path so you will need to uninstall it prior to installing the beta. If you have been using the Outlook connector to access hotmail accounts, you need to make sure you uninstall that as well - the CTP version will not work with the beta bits. You will be prompted to download the new version of the add-in when you attempt to add your hotmail account to Outlook 2010 beta.

PS - be sure to reboot between the uninstall/reinstall steps...

As a rule of thumb, I'd always recommend using a VM for performing any beta evaluations. It is much easier to blow away a VM image than it is to repave your production OS in the event the beta borks (especially if you are using an image that can be easily rolled back by discarding the Windows VPC undo disk or reverting to a saved VMWare snapshot). This can save you a lot of headaches - many beta products are notorious for leaving undesireable artifacts when you attempt to uninstall them.

Anytime I click on word, excel etc. I have to wait for office to configure. Is it suppose to configure every time a program in office is selected? Thanks

It does if you keep going back and forth between using an earlier version of Office and a later version. If you stick with one or the other, it shouldn't do that anymore.

You should see Antivirus Active as the last item in the box if your a/v is OK. Now, mine is, I use Avast. It set itself properly. HOW to add it if it's not, I am still to ascertain!

Kind regards
