Other than in this particular build, which I'm beginning to suspect is a real problem; I'm still getting the occasional glitch with Outlook.
I like it obviously (except the Mac version of Outlook which is rubbish )
Just for posterity, you should always run 32 bit Office. There are only a few valid reasons to run 64 bit, as it has some severe compatibility issues.
This from https://support.office.com/en-us/art...-6C6F49B8D261:
A normal user (includes average beta testers) never has a reason to install and use a 64 bit Microsoft Office.The 64-bit version of Office has some limitations, but is the right choice when:
- You work with extremely large data sets, like enterprise-scale Excel workbooks with complex calculations, many PivotTables, connections to external databases, PowerPivot, PowerMap, or PowerView. The 64-bit version of Office may perform better for you.
- You work with extremely large pictures, videos, or animations in PowerPoint. The 64-bit version of Office may be better suited to handle these complex slide decks.
- You work with extremely large Word documents. The 64-bit version of Office may be better suited to handle Word documents with large tables, graphics, or other objects.
- Youíre working with files over 2GB in Project, especially if the project has many subprojects.
- You want to keep the 64-bit version of Office that youíre already using. The 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office programs arenít compatible, so you canít install both on the same computer.
- Youíre developing in-house Office solutions, like add-ins or document-level customizations.
- Your organization requires Hardware Data Execution Prevention (DEP) be enforced for Office applications. DEP is a set of hardware and software technologies that some organizations use to enhance security.
If none of these situations apply to you, the 32-bit version of Office is probably the right choice.
NOTE: The 32-bit version of Office works well with both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of Windows. If you are installing the 64-bit version of Office, you need the 64-bit version of Windows. If youíre not installing on Windows, you donít need to worry about 32-bit or 64-bit options. Which version of Office do I have?
I am absolutely sure that if you by next clean install of Windows 10 installed a 32 bit version, you would no longer have any issues. In that sense, your Office issues are in my opinion caused by user.
Clean install of Build 14279 and reinstalled O365, but grabbed 32 bit instead of 64 bit! Outlook would no longer run properly; I could read one message and the thing would hang. I almost went for another clean install, but at the last minute, I decided to uninstall 32 bit O365 and install O365 64 bit. Things seem to be OK for now, but I'm holding my breath and turning blue!
The original clean install had nothing to do with Office 365 64 bit, which was working flawlessly up to that point; instead it was because I needed to get rid of multiple mis-installed HP drivers for my wide format HP printer and that was the easier route to take.
I am still getting the occasional glitch, but nothing like 32 bit O365.
FWIW, I have had no problems with O365 64 bit until yesterday, which leads me to believe that most of what I'm experiencing is caused by Build 14279, not O365 (of any bitness).
I have had so many problems with it (on Windows Insider as OS), that I had to switch to my regular Windows system with regular Office 16. At least for some time, to finish some work, which is to important to play with.
I just checked and I'm on version 16.0.6741.2014, which was released on March 8. However, having said that, it could well be that O365 hadn't updated on my computer before the clean install. It sometimes takes a few days before an O365 update will automatically happen. Which sort of makes sense . . . If there's a flaw in this "First Release" version, it could well have shown up for the first time with my installation of O365 32 bit.
I'll check my Yammer account and see if there are some conflicts with this latest version of O365 and/or Build 14279 happening.
Looks like the old "Bit happens" is on the loose!
