  1. Uninstalling Office 2010 Completely before Upgrading


    'Morning Folks! *Smile
    ::
    My old Office 2010 Professional installed from CD on my new computer with no problem, but I found my key didn't travel from my old computer. Since my old one crashed, I didn't have the opportunity to ask MS to assist moving the SW to my new machine. I'm staying away from the "annual renewal required Office 365" so I've located and purchased a new, unopened copy of Office 2013.
    ~
    Doing a bit of reading, it appears I need to be careful how I uninstall Office 2010.
    I'm looking for assistance finding the right way to do this properly.

    Much Appreciation in advance to all who read this and those who offer advice!

    No Office 2010 Updates Since June?


    I believe Office 2010 updates have been broken via Windows Update on two PC following upgrading them to v1803 in July. I've now removed and reinstalled Office 2010 as follows which worked and found all the missing updates.

    1. Uninstalled Office 2010 completely using the MS Office removal tool o15-ctrremove.diagcab
    2. Installed and activated Office 2010 from my original installation file
    3. Installed Office Service Pack 2 officesp2010-kb2687455-fullfile-x86-en-us.exe
    4. Searched and updated Office 2010 via Windows Update. This found and installed c. 50 updates since Service Pack 2.
