News and Software for 64-bit Microsoft Office
With Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, your people get a wide range of powerful new ways to do their best work from more places – whether they’re using a PC, smartphone or web browser. From insightful updates to Excel, PowerPoint, Word and Outlook, to new server integration capabilities that make it easier for everyone to track, report and share vital information, Office Professional Plus 2010 offers the complete package through familiar, intuitive tools.
Microsoft has recently published the deployment notes for its upcoming 64-bit-native Office 2010 productivity suite. As you may be aware, this is the first time Microsoft has to coded its flagship productivity suite in x64/64-bit binary format. This development is nonessential yet important.
The Visual Studio team is designing the runtime components for Office 2010 so that your Visual Studio Tools for Office 2005 and Visual Studio 2008 .NET addins, document solutions and spreadsheet solutions will run on 64-bit Office 2010. These runtime components will ship with Office 2010, so your end-users won’t even have to download a new runtime! How easy is that? There are a few rare exceptions that I’ll discuss in this blog entry.
With the announcement today around the five SKUs of Office 2010, we wanted to confirm what flavors each application would be available in. Microsoft confirmed in April that Office 2010 will be available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, the first release of Microsoft Office to do this. Microsoft was willing to build on that information today.
In March, a rumor started about there being a 64-bit version of Office 2010 and in April, we got official confirmation from Microsoft that this would indeed be happening. Ever since then, the number one question from readers commenting on Office 2010 posts was whether or not both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors would be available on one DVD. With Vista, this was not possible due to size constraints. However, with Office 2010, readers speculated, it might be possible to pull off.
Updated! - Earlier this week we learned that Microsoft would be giving out the Office 2010 Technical Preview to select testers on an invite-only basis. In January, screenshots of the alpha (then still codenamed Office 14) were leaked a week after select testers got them. This time, testers don't even have the Technical Preview yet, but new screenshots have already arrived (see below). Office 2010 will be available in 32-bit and 64-bit, and both flavors have been leaked.
Last month, a very believable rumor started flying around in regard to Office 2010 shipping in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Check out ZDNet and Within Windows to see how the conclusion was drawn. Everything pointed to Microsoft finally offering a 64-bit flavor of its Office suite, previous versions of which have only shipped in 32-bit or 16-bit flavors.
Microsoft on Tuesday confirmed that the next version of Office, code-named Office 14, will come in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version is a first for both Office and for Microsoft's mainstream desktop applications, though a number of its server products, such as SQL Server, are already available in 64-bit versions.
Change the ScreenTip language to show translations of display elements – such as buttons, menus and dialog boxes – in another language and help users navigate Microsoft Office applications installed in a language they do not understand.
You learn the most interesting things when you poke around in some of the arcane files that are included with Windows 7 beta releases. In the most recent build of Windows 7 that I’ve been able to examine, I’ve confirmed that Microsoft plans to release its next version of Office in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors. That’s a detail that my colleague Mary Jo Foley didn’t discover in her December 2008 rundown of what we know about Office 14
About 32-bit & 64-bit editions of Microsoft Office.
Gradually, oh so gradually, we’re changing from a world of 32-bit computers to 64 bit computers. What does this mean for Microsoft Office?
Microsoft have made the Beta 2 version of 2007 Microsoft Office System available. The full software package contains 13 programs, two server applications of which are available in x64 version.
