The following came from a SLO Bytes member.Which is better 32 or 64 bit program and which office should I get? I have been looking at the company linked below, but have no idea if these are okay prices (not used to download without having the disk) nor have I any past dealings with this company.
I responded on the BB so everyone can see my comments and add comments which I may have missed.
I would only purchase the latest Office 2016
by subscription which includes a fully installed Office applications or a standalone product. I would purchase from a known company; Best Buy, Staples, Amazon, Newegg, etc. I will let you do the research on finding the lowest price online or in a store.Office 365 Personalhttps://products.office.com/en-us/office-365-personalOffice 365 Homehttps://products.office.com/en-us/office-365-homeOffice Home & Business 2016https://products.office.com/en-us/home-and-businessOffice Professional 2016https://products.office.com/en-us/professionalBy default Office 2016 installs the 32-bit version.
If you have large Excel spreadsheets or use Outlook PIM (personal Information Manager) then you will want to install the 64-bit. Be advised the the 64-bit does not support all the plugins if you use them.
Open the CD or look into the downloaded ISO file and open the office folder and select setup64.exe
. Do not run setup.exe as it will go to setup32.exe.office folder
If your Office needs are minimal you can try out LibreOffice which is FREE.https://www.libreoffice.org/
