    Is office 2010 compatible with XP

    oK can't see a proper answer on that one, But I have a laptop running xp sp3 with all the version of office installed on it.
    Office 2003/ 2007 and 2010 and all are running fine..
    Anyone experiencing issues to run office 2010 on xp, if not so why Microsoft don't support Office 2010 on xp??

    From what I can see here: Microsoft Office 2010 system requirements - Products - Microsoft Office, Office 2010 is supported on XP SP3 (or rather, it works on XP SP3). Where did you hear that it wasn't supported? Perhaps the problem is not with Office 2010 but with getting support for XP.

    Support for XP isn't completely gone yet - not until at least 2014 as far as I can see. Certain support ended for XP SP2 in July, but remains for XP SP3. See: Please Verify your Location and specifically Select a Product for Lifecycle Information, and Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy FAQ for FAQ on it all.

    I didn't mean to imply it was gone for XP, just that perhaps what you heard referred more to XP than Office 2010.

    I hope this clarifies things.

    Good luck!
