    I wonder if Microsoft have learnt lessons from updating and deploying Office 2007? You cannot slipstream files in Office 2007, but MSP files can be installed when setup is complete. It would be nice if a standard MSI was made available too!

    just installed the technical preview for a look about. Took ages to upgrade from 2007. Complaining about not enough memory to load word and excel. Beta's are great. Gonna turn on paging and see if that makes a difference. Woulda thought 2gb would be enough.. Outlook is using 160mb at the moment.

    Will report more soon.

    is this even meant to be useable heh. Uninstalled, reinstalled, still getting the same errors. Powerpoint, access, publisher, onenote, infopath work OK, Outlook loads but wont let you read messages. But Excel and Word just dont work at all.

    Ah well, that passed a few hours.

    Edit, gonna try it in my win7 VM now

    Works great on the same machine in a virtual windows 7 VM. With half the ram of the host! Gonna install it now in a XP SP3 VM to see if it works, and then try to figure out what might be causing it to break on the existing xp install. I thought it might be adobe pdf maker plugin but Ive disabled that and it still doesnt work.

    Anyone else got nothing better to do and having a play?

    Ok well it installs and runs like a dream on a fresh XP SP3 install. Word / Excel open up in under 3 seconds. I wonder what caused it to fubar on my original XP install. Maybe I should have uninstalled office 2007 first and then installed 2010. I will keep playing
