    It's been a long time I am using MS Office 2007 (not that I don't like Office 2007 but the kids are nagging me to upgrade since they are using 2010 at school) so I decided to try out the 2010 version first as the office "might" gift me with a license (perhaps keeping my fingers crossed on that). So I went on and downloaded the MS Office Pro 2010 from here:

    Microsoft Office 2010 Professional

    Microsoft Office 2010 32-bit English [link]

    I downloaded the x32 because when I used the installer for the x64 from the office it would say that I have to uninstall all x32 applications and doing so will create an issue for the reason for the x32. Now as I click the setup file an error occurs stating that an MSXML ver6 is needed. Please see image below.


    now I just searched the web and found this link, but looking closer to the details it says there,

    Now I am running Windows 7 SP1 x64 and it ain't listed there.

    So now I am reluctant to go on...not really a techy guy here.

    Is the installer correct?

    I heard that I can try Office 2010 Pro for 6 months somewhere but do not recall saving the link.....or is it 3months...? Might you guys help with that also --link to that 3mos or 6mos trial for 2010 x32...?

    Can you guys help me with this problem of mine please....

    Sorry mate was really busy and this thread missed me. Thanks for posting the fix as well. It sure is a learning experience for others.

    So why not use Office 2013? I have found 2010 actually full of issues. Many a times my presentations made in 2007 will end up misbehaving in 2014. Learnt it the hard-way just before a presentation in college.
