Act 2011 and Office 2010 (on Windows 7 64bit)

Hi,

 

I've seen all the posts about Act 2010 and Office 2010, but I'm considering upgrading from Act 2008 to Act 2011.

 

I would also like to buy licences of Office 2010 for my business.

 

According to the following page, Act 2011 offers compatibility with Office 2010 32bit :

http://www.sage.co.uk/software_and_services/customers/sage_act_2011/system_requirements.aspx

 

  1. Presumambly that's full compatibility, not the work arounds described in KB ID 26713?
  2. I use Windows 7 64bit:
  • a) Is there likely to be a patch to make Act 2011 compatible with the 64bit version of Office 2010?
  • b) If not, can I force Office 2010 to install in 32bit compatibiltiy mode on my Win7 64bit PC?

TIA,

 

David

Yes

Don't know but I wouldn't hold my breath.
  • b) If not, can I force Office 2010 to install in 32bit compatibiltiy mode on my Win7 64bit PC?
Not really a case of forcing, I assume there is separate installs for the 32-bit and 64-bit just as the Windows 7 package had. For what it's worth, I would expect that Excel would be the main application that would possibly benefit directly from the 64-bit version. However, I have 64-bit Windows installed and the 64-bit operating system does boost performance of all applications, even 32-bit ones.

TIA,

 

David

Thanks for the replies.  Much appreciated.

 

I'm sure I'll live with 32bit Office!
