An in-line upgrade means that if you are using a trial of Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student edition, you can upgrade to the full version of only Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student version.
Error when using MSI files
Microsoft Office 2010 installer is manufactured as an integrated package. While browsing the installation folders, you will come across MSI files for different products. The setup basically employs these files for installing the different applications in any Microsoft Office edition. In case you need to install only specific products like Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel by double clicking on their MSI files, you will encounter a Microsoft Office 2010 installation error.
