    i was also wondering if it was possible to install office 2010 on XP
    because i wanted to try the hack of the system privilege to test if it's possible to browse the "Q" drive with system privilege

    I followed the procedure mentioned above - worked fine except it would only let me install the 32-bit version of Office Home and Student 2010 on my XP Pro x64 w/SP2 installation. Tried to install the 64-bit version but got the message about it not being a valid OS for this version of Office. Go figure.

    Hi BiLL86,

    My current OS is windows xp sp3 x64. My OS is really validation and genius from Microsoft. I wonder that if I do follow your suggestions whether it is illegal or not?

    Are you using the x64 version of the Verifier? There are 2 Application Verifier folders in Start Menu/Programs.
    Or try other versions of office (if you can) eg: professional plus (Volume Licence or GVLK preferably, it's called "SELECT EDITION" on the "source" web sites)

    Hi,
    windows xp sp3 x64 - well, there is no such thing... XP 32bit has 3 SPs but XP64 has 2 because it's based on Server 2003's NT 5.2 kernel and it has only 2 SPs, XP32 is NT 5.1.
    As for illegal, I don't think so... unsupported... definitely but not illegal, I didn't modified any files, just used Microsoft's own tools to fool the setup that is running on a supported OS version.

    The short answer: upgrade to SP3 :)
    On the other hand: Did you saved the settings you've selected? Looks like setup still reads XP SP2 instead of XP SP3. If everything set and saved correctly this couldn't happen.

    OneNote sidenote

    I haven't found a way around this one yet:
    OneNote 2010 NEEDS (god knows why) the "Desktop Experience" windows optional component (well optional on Server 2008 and 2008 R2 anyway, this includes Aero, WMP12 etc.) witch is nonexistent on XP and OneNote will not run without it. So if need OneNote keep the 2007 version.

    Bill86, I've done everything you list above and still can't get Office 2010 to load on my XP 64. I have SP1 & 2 and am using the x64 application verifier. I'm still getting the error message about not having the correct OS. What gives? Thanks in advance.

    I could only install the 64-bit version on an Windows XP x64 pro (which is fine) and apart from OneNote, it looks that all other office applications work.

    The problem now is when I try to install the PowerPivot for Excel add-in, as it says it can't find the Office shared tools...
    I tried to follow the same process with the PowerPivot setup (an .msi, not an .exe) but it didn't work.
    Any ideas?

    If it's the 32-bit version of the PowerPivot, it's not gonna work... it's looking for the 32-bit Office shared stuff, which isn't there.

    Is your Office 64-bit or 32-bit? I only tried with the 64-bit version, and have you unchecked everything else besides HighVersionLie in the App Verifier?

    BiLL,
    I've tried your steps as well; however, unlike the others above I receive no error and setup.exe closes without any further notice. I checked the system logs and there wasn't anything in the way of error messages listed there either.

    Any ideas?

    Microsoft Application Verifier, MSXML 6 SP1 and SP2 for Office 2010 x86 in XP Pro x64

    Hi BiLL86,

    If the goal is to install Office 2010 x86 in XP Pro x64 SP2, should I use the Microsoft Application Verifier x86 and install the MSXML 6 SP1 and SP2 x64 , or everything as x86?

    Thank you,

    pharee

    Hi,
    as I stated I've only tried the x64 Office, x86 SHOULD work too but it's never been tested
    x64 Office works just fine, you can see that on the screen shot.

    after installing office 2010 service pack 1
    open onenote.exe in your favorite hex editor
    go to offset 0x32FC1 and change E9 85 to 90 0F

    Enjoy
