    Is it better to run 32-bit or 64-bit of Office 2010 (Home & Student edition) on a Win 7 x64 OS?

    I just downloaded the trial version of Office 2010 and it installed the 32-bit version on default. Apparently this is the recommended version from MS because the 64-bit version has issues with plug-ins compatibility.

    Is it better to use the 32-bit version or should I un-install and install the x64-bit version?

    Thanks.

    If you Google this I think you'll find that the 32 bit is what you should use.

    if you don't have use or need of those plugins that are not or will be not made 64bit compatible then run 64bit
