The minimum system requirements for the next version of the Microsoft Office, Office 2010, has been announced.
1. Office 2010 will be available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
2. Office 2010 will run on Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
3. You don’t need to replace hardware that is capable of running 2007, it will support Office 2010. Like Windows 7 has demonstrated, we realize that taking advantage of the hardware you already own is just as important as supporting all the new technology coming out.

So that pretty much debunk rumors that Office 2010 will only be available for 64-bit systems. I’ve just upgraded to Office 2007 not so long ago and it would be interesting to see what new features will be introduced in Office 2010.
is it not possible to run ms office 2010 in xp sp2
I believe that can be done. Did you try it?
My dad recieved a download cd from his office
i tried it on my computer and even though i hav the latest version of windows xp it does not know which file to open the cd rom with
I assume you have an iso file. If so, you have 2 choices:
1. burn the iso to a cd using software such isoburn
2. mount the iso http://www.davidtan.org/how-to-load-iso-nrg-udf-bin-dvd-ccd-disk-images-without-burning-a-cddvd/

Is XML needed as an additional requirment for office 2010
XML is a data exchange format made up of pure text and tags, and should have nothing to do with MS Office 2010 requirements.
Microsoft doesn’t publish recommended system requirements anymore. Here’s their marketing spin, I mean reasoning, for not doing so.
“Office 2010 doesn’t have “recommended” requirements. The reason for this is that customers have told us that understanding hardware requirements can be confusing, and the difference in meaning between “minimum” and “recommended” requirements isn’t all that clear … By including [only] minimums, we’ve tried to make the hardware requirements as clear as possible.”
Yeah, I know I usually get confused between the words “minimum” and “requirement.” Give me a word with more than two syllables and I’m totally lost.
Todd, I absolutely missed that. Are they really using this absurd marketing? Heck, I hate these so called “minimum” VS “recommended” requirements too
Having said that, I’m confident that my new pc can run whatever software that comes out in the next 2-4 years.
Argh, who knows for sure :p
When i try to run the set up. im having an error “the language of this installation package is not supported by your system”. What should i do? please help..
i suspect the office 2010 you are trying to install has a different locale / language when compared to your windows default langauge and regional settings.
