  1. Excel 2010 throwing an error


    Hi. I've got excel 2010 installed on my windows 10 PC, and it opens and runs fine. The issue is when trying to open a saved doc, I get an error "This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with software publisher".



    I can open files if I open excel first, and then open the file from the program. It's just annoying that I can't directly open the file. Has anyone run into this before?

    WP Excel won't open Excel 2010 Spreadsheets

    I use Office 2010 (32 bit) on my Win7 Pro computer.

    I have been using my Windows Phone 7.5 to open/edit Excel 2010 files stored on Skydrive for some time.

    Suddenly, WP will not open the same files which it could open just awhile ago.

    I have used Excel 2010 to edit these spreadsheets since the last time I opened them with WPExcel and saved them in the same format as before.

    WPExcel states:

    "Can't Open. Excel doen't recognize the file format "<filename"".

    Yet these files open without issue with Excel 2010.

    Any suggestions?



    Update - WPExcel will open cloud Excel files that have not been recently opened by Excel 2010. Those files operate properly. However, once I open the same files with Excel 2010 and save them - WPExcel can not open them. Problem with Excel 2010?

    Can't open file excel 2010 in multiple windows

    In Excel 2010, all workbooks open within a single application window. Click Arrange All in the Window group of the View tab of the ribbon for options to arrange the workbook windows.

    If you want to open workbooks in separate application windows, you will have to start multiple instances of Excel:

    • Start Excel and open a workbook.
    • Right-click the Excel icon in the Windows taskbar and select Microsoft Excel 2010 from the context menu.
    • A new instance of Excel will start in a separate window. Open a workbook in this instance.
    Warning: when copying and pasting between instances of Excel , you lose some features that are available when copying and pasting between workbooks in the same instance of Excel.

    Excel Starter 2010

    Your subject line reads "Excel Starter 2010" but in your most recent post you mention "Excel Starter 2000". Which one is it?

    Regardless of this, I think your installation is damaged. If this was my machine then I would do this:

    1. Download & install the free version of Macrium Reflect.
    2. Use it to create an image of drive C:. In this way, you are fully protected against anything.
    3. Create a Macrium Reflect rescue disk on a USB flash disk.
    4. Press Windows key+I
    5. Click "Update and Security"
    6. Click "Recovery"
    7. Click "Get started"
    8. Select "Keep my files"
