Reported Issues

  • We have had one user who lost their personal folders during this installation process. Be sure and back up all local Outlook folders (PST files).
  • Some individuals have found that they could not run Office 2010, or uninstall it after installing. Here is Microsoft's uninstall repair page for Office 2003, 2007, and 2010:
  • If you are having difficulty activating Office from off campus on a university owned computer, make sure and run the Cisco VPN. Once the VPN is running, run this script on the computer. A black screen will appear. Press any key to continue.


Download Office from the OIT Software Distribution site by logging in with a NetID, selecting "Microsoft" then the appropriate version for your system.
