I have MS Office Professional 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access).  I needed to install MS Project 2013 for a class that I'm taking.

 

Long story short, I now cannot use my 2010 stuff.  The computer only recognizes 2013.  (Would have been nice if I had gotten a warning when I was installing)

 

How can I get back my 2010 stuff?  Do I have to re-install it?  If I do, are 2010 and 2013 compatible or incomparable?

 

Upgrading to 2013 for everything is neither desired nor an option right now.

 

Thnaks.

This article: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/office-2013-known-issues-HA102919019.aspx?CTT=5&origin=HA103981695#_Office_%28release%29 should help you in uninstalling Office 2013 and fixing Office 2010.

 

As for having two Windows office versions on your computer SAFELY, you would need a dual boot system, one office version for each booting partition.  You could create a third partition for all the files you save so you could easily access them from either booting partition.

Thanks for the help.  I meant to reply to this a few days ago but got sidetracked.

 

Anyway.  I ended up uninstalling Project 2013 and re-installing Office 2010.  Office 2010 works again, as it should.  I haven't re-installed Project 2013 yet, but will have to do so this weekend.
