View Full Version : MS Office 2010 and 2013???

I have MS Office Professional 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access). I needed to install MS Project 2013 for a class that I'm taking.

Long story short, I now cannot use my 2010 stuff. The computer only recognizes 2013. (Would have been nice if I had gotten a warning when I was installing)

How can I get back my 2010 stuff? Do I have to re-install it? If I do, are 2010 and 2013 compatible or incomparable?

Upgrading to 2013 for everything is neither desired nor an option right now.

As for having two Windows office versions on your computer SAFELY, you would need a dual boot system, one office version for each booting partition. You could create a third partition for all the files you save so you could easily access them from either booting partition.

Thanks for the help. I meant to reply to this a few days ago but got sidetracked.

Anyway. I ended up uninstalling Project 2013 and re-installing Office 2010. Office 2010 works again, as it should. I haven't re-installed Project 2013 yet, but will have to do so this weekend.
