Odd...wait, are there separate x86 and x64 versions of Office 2010?
There are. I downloaded an installer from the Microsoft website using the serial I used for my previous installation, it lets you choose either a 64-bit or 32-bit version of Microsoft Office to install (for Office 2010 anyways, not sure about the others). I currently have the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office 2010 installed which is probably why I don't get the Windows XP compatibility option, I can still get the non-DWM style borders on the default theme natively if I disable DWM though.
Yeah, Microsoft Office 2010 was the first version to come in both 32-bit and 64-bit.
How does UAC work with XP compatibility? Because I've gotten UAC popups with Office and XP compatibility. Is it just me?
I would also like to mention that I would still like to look into a full-on replacement for the ribbon once we have some developers on board (whether they be one of our current members, or someone new). But one thing at a time. We have a lot of planned projects with no way to really get them off the ground. So these fixes for the current ribbon UI are totally welcome. Plus, it'll provide options for people who might not want to replace the ribbon.
Yes, old versions of Office do indeed still work in Windows 10. The computer I have at work is running Windows 10, and it has Office 2003 and 2007. However, like I mentioned previously, there are many features that older versions of Office simply do not have, even with the compatibility packs. That's why I think it'd be good to try and get the newer versions (Office 2007+) to look and behave more like the older ones, while still retaining their newer features.
Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.
