    is no service pack 3 for 64 Bit ?

    Office 2010 won't run on XP Pro 64 bit. Only Vista 64 and Win 7 64 are
    approved in the 64 bit market.

    From MS Web site showing specs for Office (this is for Pro Plus but they all
    require the same:

    "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
    The following table lists the system requirements for Microsoft Office
    Professional Plus 2010.

    Component Requirement
    Computer and processor
    500-megahertz (MHz) processor or higher; 1 gigahertz (GHz) required for
    Outlook with Business Contact Manager

    Memory
    256 megabytes (M8) of RAM or higher; 512 MB recommended for graphics
    features, Outlook Instant Search, Outlook with Business Contact Manager,
    Communicator, and certain advanced functionality

    Hard disk
    3.5 gigabyte (G8) available disk space

    Display
    1024 × 768 or higher-resolution monitor

    Operating system
    Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 3 (32-bit), Windows Vista with SP1
    (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit or 64-bit) with MSXML 6.0
    installed, Windows Server 2008 or later (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows 7
    (32-bit or 64-bit). Terminal Server and Windows on Windows (WOW) (which
    allows installing 32-bit versions of Office 2010 on 64-bit operating
    systems) are supported"

    and you don't see XP 64 bit shown there do you?

    I guess you are going to need a supported operating system, cause the
    XP-64 is specifically excluded. See quoted material below.

    Operating system

    Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 3 (32-bit operating system (OS) only)
    or Windows Vista with SP1, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 R2 with MSXML
    6.0, Windows Server 2008, or later 32- or 64-bit OS.

    Office 2010 on Windows XP 64Bits

    Well..
    You Can Install Office 2010 on Windows XP 64Bits simply running the setup.exe (from Office DVD or downloaded image) on Compatibility Mode With Windows XP.

    You can use this method to install Office in Windows XP Whitout Service Pack 3 installed, running the setup.exe in compatibility mode with "Windows 2000"(when we have SP2 installed, the earlier version showed to us is Win2k)

    !!!TESTED AND APROVED!!!!


    PS.: Sorry for my Poor English..!!
