I have MS Office 2007 pro installed on my computer.
I wish to install Office 2010 Home and business, but retain the use of Access 2007, which I use intermittently, and don't need to upgrade.
Does anyone know if this is possible?

Yes you can! With only one exception: Outlook. You have to choose if you want to keep Outlook 2007 or replace it with Outlook 2010.

If you want to keep Office 2007 and Office 2010 side by side without uninstalling or upgrading Office 2007 do the following:

  • Run Office 2010 installation wizard and from the menu, select Customize;
  • Click Browse to select a location which should not be the existing Office 2007 installation folder, i.e. "C:\Program Files\Office 2010" or other name at your choice;
  • Choose the Office apps you want to install (if you want to keep Outlook 2007, deselect Outlook)
  • The installation should continue on a new destination and you will get two Office suits
Good luck!
