Windows 7 and Outlook


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I used to have an xp pc with office 2003 and used outlook for my emails. I now have a windows 7 pc with Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student but now have no outlook.

Can I install office 2003 so that I can used outlook on the windows 7 pc or will that not work? What are my options?

Thank you.

Don't see why not! I install and run Office 95 on an XP PC with no issue; about the same gap.

Office usually offers you a choice of which components you want to install. If so, you can just install Outlook which would not clash with anything already there.

Home and Student does not include Outlook.

Never said it did and OP already said so! Was answering OPs Q which you would do well to reread.

Agreed, but you will probably (if not certainly) need to run a repair on the Office 2010 installation afterwards.

Or you can go the way that will work:

Uninstall Office 2010
Install Office 2003
Install Office 2010

First check if your Windows 7 is a 32 bit or 64 bit system
if it is 64 bit check if your Office 2010 is a 64 bit install if it is you will have to remove it and then install a 32 bit Office 2010 installation using the Office 2010 32 bit disc.
You can install Outlook along side Office 2010 to work properly your Office 2010 must be installed as the 32bit version and then install the 2003 Outlook.

[In some circumstances it may be possible install a 64 bit Office with a 2003 Outlook but they will have to be on SEPARATE partitions.]
Hope this is of some help

They will all work on a 64 bit win 7 we are not discussing the operating system
Its the interaction between a 64 bit Office 2010 install and a native Outlook 2003 32 bit installed on the same volume.

How about just installing Outlook 2003?
