    Sorry folks - had to give up on Office 2016/2019. Back to 2010


    Hi folks

    Finally removed all vestiges of my experiments etc with Office 2016 and 2019.

    Installed my old MSDN / Technet VL stand alone version of Office 2010, Project 2010 and Visio 2010. Old technet VL key activated on 4 systems without problem (was a VL version in any case). Windows update gave about 4 - 5 pages of updates including a service pack.

    Now everything is working brilliantly again -- keeping that version now until it's EOL at end of 2020.

    I did try the other editions - but after Ms changed 2016/2019 from In House versions to that wretched click 2 run thing with the updates it became seriously bonkersly unuseable -- I did give it a good go but not for me I'm afraid Ms.

    I never did get IMAP to work properly - sent mail was only seen on machine it was sent from), mail couldn't be deleted if you switched languages and then tried to delete mail that you had sent when using a different office display language, and configuring outlook to run on your own domain mail servers was just a hopless exercise in futility due to auto config not recognizing your mail servers. You could sort of get it to configure by using control panel email applet - but that didn't always work properly either.

    Anyway quite happy now. But I really did test 2016/2019 quite rigorously.

    Running Office 2010 successfully on current 1803 build and the 1809 skip ahead builds.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    :)

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    Office 2010 or 2016


    I have both and find Outlook 2016 more responsive than Outlook 2010. Mainstream support for Office 2010 has ended but it continues to 2020 for Office 2016. Extended support lasts 5 years longer for Office 2016 - see allyncs.com

    Anybody using Office 2019 yet


    Just trying the Preview here.

    Having gone from Office 2010 Starter to this, I can't give a really honest review, though! *Wink
