Being an early adopter with Office 2013

Last week I ‘upgraded’ the preview version of Office Professional Plus 2013 to the the RTM version. Because Dutch is my native Language I also installed the Dutch Proofing tools when Word detected I was typing in Dutch. Today I tried to install Visio Professional 2013, but I ran into an error. A strange error off course, because I was running the RTM version of Office Professional Plus 2013. What I did not know when I installed Office 2013, the version of the Dutch Proofingtools was still the Preview version.

How-to Migrate my @Hotmail to @Outlook.com

After I published my earlier blogpost about

Upgrade your Hotmail account to the new Outlook.com I received a question via Twitter if I could tell what happened with @NaomideBoer her upgrade to Outlook.com. She didn’t only wanted her inbox to be upgraded to the new Outlook.com look, but she also wanted to change her e-mail address to something new.

I also tried the ‘Rename your e-mail address’ procedure and it worked just fine. This easily can occur when there have ben some hick ups in the renaming proces, or we just used a slightly different method…

In the following steps I will explain how you can migrate your e-mail from <em>[email protected]</em> to [email protected], be honest a @outlook.com e-mail address looks much more professional…. Smile

Excel 2010 x64 Compile Error While Opening XLS Which Uses 32-bits LIb

Just opened a Excel Sheet (Created with Excel 2003) in my 64-bit version of Excel 2010 (beta) and received the following error : Compile Error : The code in this project must be updated for use on 64-bit systems. Please review and update Declare statements and then mark them with the Ptrsafe attribute. I never received such an error (maybe because Excel 2010 is the first 64-bit Excel?), so I started to feed Google a part of the error message.

The New Cool ‘Online’ Features of Office 2010

If you have a TechNet or MSDN Subscription and didn’t download Office 2010 already, you really should go and download it! Most of the features that were already in the ‘old’ Office versions are there of course, but I discovered (thanks Peter for tips about PowerPoint!). Some of the features are already discussed at several other websites, but I still will mention them. I also added a nice video at the end which shows the new Vortex transition possibilities…

Having Troubles Activating Office 2010 Beta?

I’ve been a user of Office 2010 since I received the invitation for the Technical Preview. So when I heard that I could download the Beta version of Office Professional Plus 2010, I checked TechNet right away and downloaded the 64-bits version (I was also using the 64-bit Technical Preview version). Because I had Outlook configured with Exchange, etc I tried to ‘upgrade’ my Technical Preview version, but that one failed.
