I currently have Microsoft Office 2010 Educational, with all the major programs including Publisher and Outlook.

 

I am contemplating upgrading to Office 2016, as I definitely want an installable version, not a subscription version.

 

I have no idea if it is possible to have two versions of Office installed on the same machine at the same time because I've never tried it and, I will admit, it's not something that would typically be done.  I just thought if it can be done it allows me to jump back to the familiar for a while if I need to do so for certain things.

 

If anyone can confirm that they have done this, or confirm that it cannot be done, I would appreciate it.

Thanks Louis.

 

I don't always trust that what Microsoft says is necessarily accurate from the "ease of doing" perspective, but based on what's on those pages I have proceeded to install Office 2016 Pro Plus and that part is working just fine.

 

I will report back as to what, if any, issues I might have with conflicts not identified by Microsoft should any occur.  I really want to nuke Office 2010, as it's almost out of support, but want to make sure that Office 2016 is doing what I expect it to do first.
