Office 2010 Favorites Feature


I'm looking for a couple features in office 2010 (just upgraded from office 2003). The first features is saving favorites from excel and word. In 2003 i would save a file link from the network or my hard drive as a favorite in internet explorer. Thus clicking the favorite in i.e. Would open the excel or word file on the network drive. The second feature i'm looking for is how to modify and save an attachment from an email without sending it or doing a save as to the hard drive. In 2003 you could open a file and it save it without having to do a save as. Hopefully this makes sense. Am running windows 7 pro 32bit on a new system.

Office 2010 Programs Are Not Listed

Office 2010 programs for word, excel and powerpoint are not listed in the windows 7 default programs in control panel. I have installed office home and business 2010, 32 bit version, and uninstalled office 2003. I am running windows 7. Outlook appears in the default programs list, but none of the other office programs. What do i need to do to get them listed?

Cannot Upgrade From Office 2007 To 2010

I've come here looking for some help with an issue i've been having. I run windows 7 professional 32-bit and i installed office home and student 2007. It doesn't come with publisher and i need that for a quick project so i downloaded the office 2010 beta. The problem i've been having is i choose upgrade (previous versions of office) during the install for the beta, it starts installing and gets all the way to the end and then after like 5 or 10 minutes sitting at the end (progress bar full) it starts shooting out this error:

"Error 1712: a file required to restore your computer to a previous state could not be found. " It says something like that and it just keeps saying it over and over until i have to cancel the setup. I've looked at various other places for solutions. I've tried the windows installer cleanup utility to try and remove whatever 2010 might be running into during it's setup. I re-downloaded the installer as well and remove all of the 2010 files and registry keys that were left behind and i still have this error when trying to upgrade.

Office 2010 Technet 32-bit Validation

I have a current and valid subscription to technet for my company and have downloaded the 32 bit versions of both to validate on our company equipment. Our expectation is that the one set of hardware will be run with the clean install for between 4 to 6 months.

Recently used the machine to look at the information about virtual pc and the microsoft site told me i had to validate with genuine advantage again. This should not be a problem so i ran the install for the active x and validated the os, everything is fine, but the office 2010 validation came back and told me that either i did not have office installed or i had an invalid copy. Since the install and license are from technet (and are legal and paid for) this is somewhat of a surprise.

They os has been installed on this machine for about 40 days and hasnot had to be reinstalled as of yet. The build is working so far in our tests. The office 2010 was just added this last week.

I started doing research and downloaded the microsoft advantage diagnostic tool (1. 9. 0027. 0) and ran it.

On the windows tab:

My product type is 5 -retail

Legitchekcontrol is 1. 9. 42. 0

Validation code is 0

(On the) licensing tab:

Windows(r) 7, retail channel

Lots of activation and application id's & certificates

License state: licensed

Remaining rearm coumt:3

(On the) office tab

Validation status: 109 n/a

Oga version, registered, 2. 0. 48. 0

Signed by: microsot

Diagonstic: string(s0 that exceed 100 characters that make no human readable sense.

So my two questions are:

1. The os technet license key has a total of 10 activations according to the technet download site (before i need to request a new key), so will this have to be "rearmed" in 120 days? Or am i misreading the use of rearm as it applies to technet subscriptions? As i understand it "rearm" applies mainly to evaluation copies, not paid for retail channel copies and technet subscriptions. As a test and development machine this is box is subject to a lot of critical tests that i cannot interrupt by having the os turn into crippleware mid-testing.

2. The office 2010 genuine advantage validation seemed to have worked when i first installed it and ran update (it installed the tool that time right aft office 2010 was installed). But now a few days later it is reporting the copy as not there or invalid. What do i do to fix this? Office is running and we are stating to incorporate the development stuff for our other applications that relay on ms office so as with the os i cannot have the testing process locked out by office locking us out.

Installer Error 1719 Office 2010

Windows 7 pro 64 bit - installer error 1719 while installing office 2010 pro plus. I am getting the noted error doing the noted install - msixec.exe shows in 'services' as running and i have tried the unregister and register moves. There are enumerable threads on this error however none that i saw that related to w7-64 and i am loath to start fiddling with registry entries and so on without being sure that i am following correct instructions (in fact i did look into the registry following one suggestion and found that my entries did not match those described in the solution).

There also seems to be a lot of 'try this and try that' some here even referencing non-microsoft blogs - one would think that ms would want to have definitive procedure for something as core as the installer on their flagship product. T the very least there ought to be a procedure to determine more precisely what is causing the problem.

For example, msiexec.exe can be run with numerous parameters to provide logging and so on but i have seen nothing on this in the forums.

Can someone please advice the correct procedure for resolving this?If i need to download cleanup utilities or whatever please can i have the exact url so that i am downloading the correct product?Ps - i should note that this install is coming form a . Iso file downloaded from msdn

Office 2010, Itunes, Media Player Crash

I'm running win7 on a new hp pavilion dv6 15. 6" core2 duo notebook and have been experiencing trouble lately. Itunes has suddenly been failing to open every time i try to run it. I see the outline of a window forming, and then get a window which says "itunes has stopped working". This also happens less frequently in office 2010 beta and in windows media player. They both only crash after the program is opened, and in media player, it specifically happens when i try to start windows media guide.

In addition to these problems, i've had the desktop gadget gallery become inaccessible, and i've had vertical bars on my screen (see the thread "experiencing vertical bars on screen")

Office 2010 Files Not Appearing In Jump Lists

I’m running windows 7 home premium (64-bit). Recently, i upgraded my existing office 2007 to office professional plus 2010 (32-bit). Since the upgrade, i’ve noticed that office open/recent files no longer appear in the jumplists. This is driving me crazy. I’ve searched and searched, but none of the fixes i’ve seen for similar problems are working. This issue is restricted to office 2010 programs only. Notepad, windows explorer, and internet explorer (for example) do not have this issue. I realize this isn’t a necessity, but i became sadly dependent on them with office 2007; and i feel a bit cheated that i can't use them with 2010. Please point me in the right direction.

Office 2010 / Iexplorer 8 Won't Print

I've got this problem: my pc (brand new fujitsu esp p1510 intel core-i3 530 / 8gb ram) won't print with msoffice 2010, iexplorer 8, adobe reader 9 and some other programs. It prints ok with other programs i.ex. Wordpad.

I'm using a print server (see below), and i'm having no printing problems with my other computers using the same printer. These are running win xp, and my netbook running win7 starter (32-bit) also prints ok via the network.

My fujitsu's os: windows 7 pro 64bit
Print server: d-link dp-301u
Printer: hp deskjet 3650

When i check the printer window and click print in one of the ms-office 2010 prgs. Or iexplorer 8 i can see that the print-command is sent to the printer, but it only stays in the window for half a second then it disappears, and i can hear the printer making its "getting-ready-to-print" sounds. But the printer doesn't begin printing.

If i check the printer window while clicking print in word-pad, the print-command appears but in this case it stays in the window for about two seconds, apparently enough time for the printer to start printing. Which it does fine.

Also if i go to the properties tab for my printer and clicks test, the printer starts and prints ok.

Can't Click Icons After Upgrade To Office 2010

I recently moved to office 2010 (from 2007). No problems with the process, and the office programs work fine. However, now when i start the pc and get to the windows logon screen (i have three user accounts set up) i can't click on my own logon icon. If i hit enter i get to my wife's logon (she's the first icon, reading from left to right). From her account i can then log off, come back to the logon screen and every-thing's fine.

I've also discovered if i use the keyboard i can arrow to my icon, hit enter and get my password prompt. Possibly related: there's also a very intermittent (and hard to describe) problem where when i click within a running application/window, or even on the windows start button, the behavior is like sending that window or application to the back - it doesn't register mouse clicks, and i have to alt-tab tp bring it back to the 'front' so i can use the keyboard instead.

As far as i can see the mouse is fine, and i plugged another mouse in yesterday and got the same results. As i say, this is very intermittent but i hadn't seen it before going to office 2010.system is a dell xps-710 with 4gb ram running win 7. Video is nvidia geforce 7900 gtx; sound is soundblaster x-fi.

Mac Pro With Bootcamp - Reinstall Win 7 And Office 2010

Macpro with bootcamp - need to re-partition hd and re-install win 7 and office 2010 (full versions, not upgrades). I just called support and the 90 days of support are up on the windows 7 since i purchased it in oct or nov 2009. When i re-partition i will lose both msft programs. I don't think there will be any problem with office 2010 which was purchased this week but what about win 7? Will the product key work if it is re-installed on the same computer or do i have to shell out more money to gates for his pirated software from apple?

Support wouldn't answer that question as they said the product key was out of date. Wow. 90 days is awfully short.

Ie Download Manager Feature

This might be more of a suggestion for a future feature in microsoft internet explorer, but is there any sort of download manager available in the ie8 browser? Something along the lines of getright, such that it resumes downloads if they time out or have to be paused?

I think it is odd that we have exponential increases in hard drive space and online data storage, but ie still stalls when downloading or uploading files. I am taking an online class through my university but i am unable to download files very easily because ie8 keeps stalling and ending the download early, sometimes also being unable to resume it even when i try to re-download the file immediately. I was hoping getright would solve my problem but my school uses a forwarding procedure to download the videos (e.g. , Clicking the link downloads "download. Mov", which then changes to the actual file link "class. Mp4"). I am unable to find the full link for class. Mp4 and so am kinda in limbo for now.

Does ie8 have any sort of built-in download manager or have one available as an add-on?

Aero - Peek Feature Disabled

The peek at desktop function on the taskbar is grayed-out. The peek at desktop checkbox in the taskbar and start menu properties is checked, but also grayed-out. In system properties, performance options dialog box, everything is checked except save taskbar thumbnail previews. I ran the aero troubleshooter and it returned a result of no problems detected. Obviously there is a disconnect elsewhere. I am using windows 7 pro, 64-bit, with an hp pavilion elite hpe-180t desktop. Any suggestions?

Enable Ie8 Auto Address Feature

With windows xp when visiting the web with internet explorer as i typed the internet address, if i had visited before, it was displayed and all i had to do was hit the enter key to visit. I need to know how to set that up with the new internet explorer. I have gone in and set, and reset those options, but i can't get it to work, so i am doing something wrong.

I still have a lower version ie at work and also windows xp and it works there. But get home and i always have to use the mouse to click on the address if it shows in the list. Please help me enable this feature, if it still exists. If it doesn't then i am not a happy camper.

Feature Request - Folder Up Arrow Icon

I know that vista and 7 probably have great folder navigation advancements, but i would still ask that you add the up arrow icon back to windows explorer toolbars. I run into situations many times a day when i would use the up arrow if i had it, but instead either use the keyboard shortcut or have to manually select folders from either the folder view or the path. I use many files across many projects at work and home, and this would be a very welcome item to bring back from the past.

Xp Mode: Enable Integration Feature Is Grayed Out

I had bought windows 7 and found i could not run my autocad program on it. I then bought windows 7 professional with xp mode so i could run autodad. Today i open my virtual pc and i get a window stating it could not enable integration features. When checking details it states: you can either try again to enable these features, or continue without these features. You can use the tools menu to enable integration features later. Integration features enable sharing. Well i click on tools and the option to enable integrations is grayed and i can not change anything. I check my start menu and i have two window xp mode short cuts. One opens and none of my program icons are there, the other won't open. Any help would be great. I am not a wizard, so lots of details please.

Setup File Must Be Downloaded And Installed Before This Feature Will Work

Trying to install xp mode and virtual pc, i set the bios and did everything to the letter, twice. It's in my program list but it keeps telling me "the setup file must be downloaded and installed before this feature will work". I have a new hp pavilion dv7 64 bit that came with vista. I upgraded today at the geek squad to 7 ultimate so i can run autocad14 software. I have now spent 6 hours reading, reinstalling.

Twice i've downloaded 500megs and installed the new xp mode and virtual pc, i set the bios and did everything to the letter, twice. It's in my program list but it keeps telling me "the setup file must be downloaded and installed before this feature will work".

Snap Feature Does Not Work On Inside Of Dual Monitor Setup

I have windows 7 home premium x64 fully updated. So far it's great. But i have two monitors, primary 1440x900 and secondary 1280x1024 with the secondary monitor on the right of the primary monitor. When i try to "snap" a window to the edge of either monitor that is next to the other monitor, nothing happens. I was wondering if this was a typical problem people were having or if it was just me and if there was any way to make it work or if there was a patch for it. (Google chrome's built-in "snap" feature can use the inside of the monitors).

Favorites Adding

Before i downloaded this new version i was very content with the fact that next to my favorites star button another star button with a plus for easy adding without having to open the annoying favorites menu for adding. Giving that option back to us, well me since i loved the option so much, would be absolutely great. And no i don't like that new option that goes with the star button that has the arrow, hate it. I would like to put the adding favorites button back into my toolbar, not going to the menu.

Favorites Not Working

I have ie8, vista, for some reason, all my favorites are no longer working. Meaning. They all display on my favorites tab, but when i click on it, nothing happens. My history tab works, all the links open up as they should, however, the favorites do not work.

I have tried to restore ie default settings, i resorted back to ie7, i reloaded ie8. I have exported the links (all look fine on export) i have deleted all of them, i re-loaded them and no luck. I click on them, select the arrow to the right, and nothing.

Favorites Missing

Over the last 2-3 weeks all the links within ie8 favorites have disappeared. In fact when first clicking on favorites the following error message appears:

"Location is not available - c:users*name*musicfavoritesfavorites refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be in a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet on your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been move to a different location"

Subsequent clicking on favorites within ie8 then just comes up completely blank. I can find all the links within a favorites folder in the music folder location. I don't know why the favorites have been moved and how to rectify this. Any advice would be appreciated.

The problem is on a laptop running windows vista home premium service pack 2.

Ie8 Favorites Do Not Work

I have the following problems with favorites in ie8:

Adding a favorite creates it twice (once with the url as name, once with the page title as name)
Clicking on any favorite in ie does nothing (no error, no feedback)

Favorites can be deleted without problem
Opening the url file in explorer opens a print window (the print is empty)
Reinstalling ie8 had no effect and no spyware was detected by multiple scanners

Anybody have any clue what could be the cause of this?

Favorites Not Working In Ie8

I have an hp pavillion running vista. Recently the "favorites" feature stopped working. All my bookmarks are still listed but they do not work (and the little icons before the text are now just empty boxes). If i try and add a favorite, it won't be added. I have not added any new programs that i am aware of. Favorites just suddenly stopped working. The favorites folder still exists in my users directory. The registry address is %userprofile%. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled ie 8. I have reset it. I have run it without add ons. I have scanned the computer for viruses using norton 360. Nothing has worked.

Favorites Icons (favicons)

For each saved favorite in the drop down, a right-click to properties, then change icon, goes to a file containing only five preloaded generic other icons to choose from. Location: c:windowssystem32url.dll

So i want to design my own icons and tag them to various favorites (also perhaps on desktop). I also want to store them somewhere (if possible, add them to the same preloaded "library" at c:windowssystem32url.dll).

Can i do this? How?

Where Are Email And Favorites Stored?

My new computer crashed and is being replaced. I dumped the contents of the original hard drive to an external drive so i can retrieve some contents. I wish to retrieve my email contact list, my emails - in all their different folders, my internet websites and cookies which has all my logins and such. I wasn't able to do an easy transfer under the circumstances. Is it possible to locate these files and just copy them to the new setup? I would hate to loose all this information.

Saving Of Favorites Problem

In win 7-64, ie8, everytime i save a favorite, it saves two lines to the folder. One entry is the name i gave it. That entry will not open the site. The second entry is the complete link  it does open the site. For example:

Saved the following with the name i gave it:
Kitchen cabinet finishing

The second line, never adjacent to the first saved line was:
Kitchen-cabinets-and-hardware.com-kitchen-cabinet-finishing.html

The entry of the name i gave it is useless.

How can i solve this problem?

Outlook 2010 Beta Problems

I am using the beta for outlook 2010. When i click on send/receive i am getting the 0x800ccc0f error. It appears that it will send, it just will not receive. I have turned off all firewalls and since i am posting this on the same computer, you can assume that my internet connection is ok. I am able to connect to the webmail interface with no problems, so it is likely that is not the problem. After this initial troubleshooting i uninstalled 2010 and reinstalled 2007 and checked the problem.

I got the typical "created with a newer version" message and dealt with it. It still would not receive. I reinstalled 2010 again but no luck. I have scanned the pst's and repaired a few "minor inconsistencies" but the problem persists. I have checked all settings in the file and all of them are correct. Any idea's?
