    Hi all,

    Just a quicky chaps... I need to install 0ffice,... and I need to install it on win 10 pro, I've already got v 2.6.2 by cody, but I just wanted to know what would be the best version to install,... 10, 13, or 16.
    Also (I don't do this on a weekly basis, so memory not to good on this bit) do I need Vol or retail. and is it best to do an install offline?
    Really appreciate any help / advice / info anyone can give...

    Thanks chaps for any replies..

    I recommend Office 2016. Im running Windows 10 Education Volume and Office Pro Plus 2016 Volume without any problems. Also running Project 2016 and Visio 2016.

    I remember running Office 2010 back in the day, had alot of problems with spellcheck and errors.
    Office 2013 was a nice step up with new graphics.
    Office 2016 is great, smooth interface, plenty of features and compatible with older .doc/.ppt/.xls dicument types.

    • If you want to install Project or Visio they must be downloaded and installed before the main Office program. If I do it the other way around it seems to give errors.
    • If you DO NOT want save to OneDrive or any of the cloud features you can disable it via regedit and settings = Capture.PNG
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    Save it as "disable2016.reg" and run.

    Good Luck!
