Users who are currently on the Windows 10 platform may need to re-install Microsoft office.
As reported by Tech Crunch, Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul, has announced that a security update to Windows 10 will not install if the computer already has Office installed. This means that, for security reasons, Windows 10 users will have to uninstall Office, run the security update and then re-install Office.
Unlike earlier iterations of the Windows platform, Microsoft is working closely with developers and taking advise before releasing it for consumers. This should help the company avoid glaring bugs and other performance glitches in what is expected to be the biggest release since Satya Nadella took the helm of Microsoft. After the poor show put by Windows 8, the company has a lot riding on Windows 10.
Microsoft has released only the Technical Preview of Windows 10, which allows developers to improve the operating system. The most recent update to the Windows 10 is the 9879 preview build, which includes some bug fixes and design changes.
The company is expected to unveil the official version of Windows 10 for consumers in January that will include all the changes Microsoft incorporates during the testing phases. Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will bring back the Start button and gives you the option to never see the Metro interface introduced in Windows 8. Other features include better multitasking, easier shut-down and support for different kinds of devices.
