    Build 10158 - loses Office 2016 Preview (no data lost though)


    Hi there

    I needed to re-install Office 2016 Preview again after updating to build 10158. - Didn't lose any data (Outlook 2016 for example uses same data files as Office 2010 which remains installed).

    Not a serious issue - but could flummix a few people.

    Simply re-install the Preview again.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    I think I know what happened -- I did my INITIAL upgrade from build 10147. I'm trying another upgrade from 10130 and see what happens then.

    Build 10147 while good was an Unofficial build so who knows what it does on an upgrade !!.

    Mind you the advantage is that my trial starts again from SCRATCH so I've got an extra free month !!!!.

    Cheers

    It happened to me when updating from Build 10130, Jimbo. No need to try it.

    That's the latest version; you're good to go.

    Edit: Seems to me that with the Public Preview of Office 365 (with the latest updates) out here in the wild, Microsoft is getting ready to make an announcement soon.

Office 2016 Preview and Office 2010 concurrently.
Hi there I think this comment is allowed - there is an NDA but I think this is OK. The latest update installs OFFICE 2016 just fine and works OK. Office 2010 is left untouched so you can run BOTH concurrently. OUTLOOK 2016 though uses the same...
