    Office and Outlook 2010 installation discs are for both 32 and 64 versions?

    I'm going to upgrade from Windows 7 32 bit to 64 bit in a few days, and have installation discs for both Office 2010 and Outlook 2010. Do I need to buy new ones or can I use them for the 64 bit version as well (I'm asking because Windows 7 comes with separate discs for 32 and 64 bit versions)?

    TIA

    The Office 2010 Pro and Office 2013 I got included both types of discs for Office, haven't checked for Outlook. But it may depend upon which Office suite you got, some versions don't include Outlook. Outlook is available separately.

    I've bought Office and Outlook 2010 each one separately. Want I want to know is if each one is both for Windows 32 bit and 64 bit, or do I need to buy new ones.

    Unless you have a very good reason install 32-bit Office regardless of 32-bit or 64-bit Windows.

    Microsoft only recommends the 64-bit version for specific reasons. See Choose the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Office for Microsoft's guidance.

    So, when I install Office 2010 from the installation disc, I need to manually choose 32 bit?

    I'm pretty sure that the 32-bit version is the default.

    32-bit is default. To install 64-bit you have to navigate to the specific folder on the install DVD.
