    Will Office be similar to the release of Windows in terms of getting free upgrades for certain situations?

    Hi there

    Currently if you uninstall and then re-install again and enter the serial nr from the web site the clock is re-set to 120 days again !!! - Use ENTER product number rather than logon (to Office 2016) with an Ms account when prompted for activation..

    Move all emails etc to users-->documents-->outlook files-->outlook.pst before uninstalling. You can then re-import those again after setting up Outlook 2016 again.

    "Cheeky" aren't I. !!!!

    Cheers

    Question.
    I have office 2013. When 2016 comes out, will I have to repurchase it if I want to get it?

    Hi there

    Probably you'll get a discount on an UPGRADE. For me I HATED Office 2013 --stuck with Office 2010 until the trial of 2016 came out which I'll probably get when it's released as a "purchasable" product. I have ZERO interest in Office 365 type of subscriptions.

    Any remarks about Publisher 2016? 2013 was a disaster! It was so slow a turtle could make faster progress. I'm using 2010 right now.

    Of course. No free upgrades with Office - that's Microsoft's money maker!

    Never heard of an upgrade for Office and I go back to Office '97. I've used 2003, 2007, 2010 (which I went back to ) and 2013 (Publisher is a piece of crap in that edition). Fortunately, I don't have to pay for mine since I teach Office and use it for my computer clubs newsletter. The club supplies me with my copy.

    Have a problem restarting Outlook when going back to 2010 from 2013. Seems there was some kind of file format change when I upgraded and now it won't let me go back and set up Outlook 2010. Went back to using Windows Live Mail. Too much of a hassle trying to fix Outlook.

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...
