Office 2010 Requirement

I tried installing my copy of Office 2010 Professional plus test and have found something that might interest anyone who is looking at purchasing it on the release date very shortly.

The minimum requirements for Vista is Service Pack 1. Most machine will have recieved this in an update but its best to check before trying to install it that you have the update.

Click on Start -> Control Panel -> Classic view (in the top left corner if it isn’t classic view already) -> System and look on the page for Service Pack 1 or 2.

If it says nothing you then need to download the stand alone first.

Below are the requirements from microsoft for both the professional and home and student versions:

Outlook cannot create file error when opening attachments

By finding this I’m gussing you and I are having the same problem.

The problem being that your trying to open an email attachment in outlook and it’s throwing up the error “cannot create file”.

Here is a quick and easy way to sort this:

#1. Click Start > Run and type regedit.

#2. Click Edit > Find and type OutlookSecureTempFolder.

#3. When regedit has found the entry, it will tell you where your Outlook temporary files are stored. It will look similar to: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLKrandomnumber

#4. Open My Computer go to the location you just found above.

#5. Delete (or move) all of the files in this folder.

#6. Restart Microsoft Outlook and try to open the attachment again.
