    Can't reinstall valid copy of Outlook 2010 in Windows 10


    Upgraded to Windows 10.

    Everything was fine for about a month until I had a disk crash. After several days I got that fixed and did a clean install of Windows 10.

    Now I am trying to reinstall Outlook 2010 from the original DVD. Valid product key (setup validates it).

    Setup runs, then encounters an error (doesn't tell me what), and backs off all files.

    As far as I can tell, Windows 10 is saying the SETUP file is incompatible, not Outlook 2010 which Microsoft states is still compatible with Windows 10.

    Any suggestions?

    :)

    Outlook email links not working with Win 10 and IE11.

    Thanks, but everything else in Office 2010 works fine, and the other deal is that I have no way to reinstall the Outlook. It was not part of the Office 2010 package. The Office 2010 package that came with my computer did not have Outlook included, so
    instead of buying it separately, I installed my last licensed copy of Outlook 2003 on the computer. Outlook 2003 worked fine with Windows 7 and also works fine with Windows 10 for all functions except the correct application of hyperlinks with IE11. The hyperlinks
    did work just fine with MS Edge, and until I made IE11 the default browser, hyperlinks would come up in Edge, even though I was using IE11 as my browser. If I can't find a solution, I'll be reassigning Edge as the default browser just to accept the hyperlinks
    from Outlook, and use the IE11 for my normal browsing. I do intend to install Outlook 2010 soon, so that might also help.

  3. Microsoft Outlook 10 wants to Reinstall after latest Windows update

    I have been running Windows 10 with Microsoft Outlook 2010 since 2010. Today, after the latest Windows Update, Microsoft Outlook 2010 wants to reinstall Microsoft Outlook 2010. For some reason, it is not recognizing that it is still there. How do I fix
    this.

    Thank you,

    Can't reinstall valid copy of Outlook 2010 in Windows 10

    Is there a compatibility wizard (right click on the setup.exe file on the distribution DVD and select whatever it says about compatibility)?

    Tried running setup as administrator.

    This time I got an actual error message:

    The file Proof.es\Proof.MSI could not be found.

    Check your version of office 2010? It can be 32 or 64 bit.
    You can not install Office 2010 64 bit on a Windows 10 32 bit environment!
    But a 32 bit Office 2010 will work on Windows 10 64 bit setup.

    Yes I am trying to install 32 bit version. Get the same issue with the 64 bit version though.

    Now you got an error message that is little easier to debug.
    I experienced the proof.es and proof.msi not found when installing Office 2007.
    It turn out to be a bad CD\DVD. I copied the content of CD\DVD to a folder in the hard drive. Like magic, it completed the installation without problem.

    I tried that. Didn't work.

    Tried a MS Fix-It. Rebooted. Going to try again now.

    You can download the Office 2010 Prof Plus trial version. It is (was) good for 60 days. Here is the link:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalc...onal-plus-2010

    I have not done it lately. We are all on Office 2013 Prof and preparing to migrate to Office 2016 pending on our testing result!

    ???

    I'm not sure how that would help. I don't own the Prof edition.

    If this download work, it is most likely you have a CD\DVD media problem?
    The Prof version has more programs and options, it is just a testing tool for now and available in TechNet.
    BTW, what version of Office 2010 you have? Home & Student, Home and Business, Professional, Enterprise, etc?
