If you have decided to install Office 2010 on your computer, then you will be amazed to know that the system requirements for Office 2010 are almost same as Office 2007. But sometimes, you may encounter errors during installation. Let us see what the causes for these errors are and how to properly install it in your computer system.
Following points will tell you about the causes of Office 2010 errors during installation and also tell you how to install it properly on your system:

- Tips to install Office 2010
Not enough disk space
If you want to install Office 2010 on your computer, then you must have at least 256 MB of RAM and 3 GB of hard disk space. In addition to that, you should also leave some free space on your computer, so that you can efficiently and freely use the program in your system. Experts suggest that you should keep at least 80% of your computer’s memory free, because storing the program does not consume RAM, but using them does.
Programs running in the background
If you are trying to install Office 2010 in your computer system, then you will need to close all other programs and applications running in the background. For this, you may press 'Ctrl' + 'Alt' + 'Del' together and end all the tasks running at present by pressing 'End Task.' Some programs may interfere with the installation process and in that situation, you may receive Office 2010 error during installation.
The best source to download Office 2010 is the official website of Microsoft. This is the most authentic and most legal source which you can use to install the program on your computer system. If you are using any other source to download the program from, then you need to make sure that it provides you with an original copy of the program. In order to ensure that, you need to check the product key provided to you, which should be original and unique.
If you want to install Office 2010 in your computer system, then you need to visit the Microsoft website, search for the Office 2010 edition, click on its link and click on the 'Install' button. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Once Office 2010 is installed on your system, you will get a product key which you will need to enter in order to activate Office 2010 on your system.
