The good thing about this version of Microsoft Office is that the CPU and RAM requirements of Microsoft OfficeÂ 2010 are the same as of Microsoft OfficeÂ 2007. It needs a minimum of 500 MHz Processor, 2 5 6 MB RAM and Windows XP Service Pack 3 for the installation. However, disk-space requirements have gone up by 0. 5 GB and the suites have increased by 1. 0 or 1. 5 GB.
Microsoft OfficeÂ 2010 offers both 3 2-bit and 6 4-bit versions. This is an advantage as the users will not have to upgrade their 3 2 bit PCs and laptops to 6 4-bit.
The operating system requirements of Microsoft OfficeÂ 2010 for 32-bit Operating Systems are as follows:Â Windows 7,Â Windows Vista SP1,Â Windows XP SP3,Â Windows Server 2008 andÂ Windows Server R2 with MSXML 6.0.
The installation requirements of the Microsoft OfficeÂ 2010 are much the same as the previous version of Microsoft Office. However, Microsoft Office 2010 comes with an additional requirement of a new graphics processor (GPU). Many computers don’t have physical graphics card but they have a graphics processor GPU. If a computer has GPU, the performance speeds up as the graphics tasks are carried out in the GPU instead of CPU. This is particularly useful for Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.
This Microsoft OfficeÂ needs Microsoft DirectX 9.0c compliant graphics processors with 64 MB video memory. However, for much greater use of graphics, the more powerful GPU will be needed.
Finally you need the latest windows installer for the installation of the new and exciting version of Microsoft Office, Microsoft OfficeÂ 2010 and there you go! You can now install Microsoft OfficeÂ 2010. You just need to insert the CD in your CDROM and start the installation.
