When I bought Outlook version 2010 to go with my Office 2010 home version previously bought, the Outlook installation caused this error: "Found problem OFFICE (32-bit) could not be installed because 64 bit office programs are already installed on your computer." When I phoned tech support at MicroSoft, he seemed totally confused and I ended up wanting to get a refund rather than let him walk me through changes to my new computer.
Apparently, I will have the choice of buying 64 bit Outlook rather than 32 bit Outlook.
My question for now is: Should I buy a 2010 version or 2013 version of Outlook (64 bit) if I want to simplify the moving of my Contact Data (only) saved to an external Hard Drive that was formerly compiled using OUTLOOK 2000 on a now defunct Windows XP PC computer.
Does M/S expert, Diane Poremsky, or some other blogger have a reason for recommending one year's version over the other when dealing with transfer of only Contact Data from Outlook Version 2000?? Am I in the right forum for this question? Thanks!
 
Sheesh. What a clueless support person, he should know exactly what is wrong.

You can not install 64-bit office side by side with 32bit office. You need to do one of two things: uninstall the old office/reinstall or install the 32bit Outlook, which *is included* with purchase - the key is good for either 32 or 64.

So... my advice is don't buy anything. :) At least not because of this. If you want to upgrade to 2013, then its a different story... but if you want to keep Office 2010, you can either uninstall 2010 Home and reinstall it as 32 bit or install outlook 64 bit.

did you get a CD or download Outlook? both bit versions should be on the CD and the online store should have both versions. But if not, there are links online where you can download from the MS servers.

download links:

... if I want to simplify the moving of my Contact Data (only) saved to an external Hard Drive that was formerly compiled using OUTLOOK 2000 on a now defunct Windows XP PC computer.

BTw, It won't matter which outlook you use. Get the pst off the old drive and import it into the new profile.
