  • The information on the MS web site about Office 2010 beta's expiration says something about data used with the beta will not be available (or usable?) after the expiration.  I presume that we'd be able to access and use any files that we created with the beta applications, once a released version of Office 2010 is installed and activated.  Is that presumption correct or reasonable?

  • Yeah, your presumption is pretty much correct. Although the file formats can be opened using earlier versions of MS Office, at any time.

  • Yes, as Zach said, any files you create or modify with Office 2010 Beta will still be available to you or whoever has access to those files.

  • I downloaded the Office Beta 2010 to my laptop, my desktop runs an older (simpler 2000) version of Office.  I tried to use a Publisher file I created in 2010 on the desktop and I get the error "Publisher cannot open files from a different version"  HELP!

  • Is it possible to the apply an Office 2010 Product Key to the Beta installation, or do I need to do a complete re-install of the software?

  • Hi John,

    You would need to install the released version or a 60-day trial version.
