    Installing Office 2013

    I just bought Office 2013. I have a 64-bit processor with 32-bit Office 2010 installed.
    When I try to install the 64-bit version of Office 2013 it tells me I have to uninstall the 32-bit version of 2010 first.
    I am reluctant to do that; primarily, because I donít want to lose my data and settings in Outlook.
    I would expect better performance from a 64-bit installation; is that correct?
    Is there a way to save and reinstall Outlook data and settings?

    The 64 bit version of Office is mostly recommended for very specific scenarios, such as large Excel sheets, where the 64 bit architecture could be valuable. This has been pointed out as a recommendation by Microsoft itself. The 64 bit version has less add-ons available.

    Both my computers have been running on 64 bit processors for a long time and I still use the Office 32 bit versions.

    You can not have a 32-bit version of Office and a 64-bit version of Office installed at the same time. See Why can’t I install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office 2013?.
