Hi There!

I am looking to track down a couple of PKC 2010 Licenses since 2013 isn't downgradeable, and I have a couple of customers with App's not compatible with 2013.

Anyone know of any distributors with it ?

I'm guessing you are aware that you can buy (expensive) enterprise licenses for Office 2013 and use their automatic rights that these licenses come with.

I encouraged Synnex to get in one last order of Office 2010's some time ago, and they obliged but these are long gone. I assume that MS just will not sell them now.

I have an automated email from TradeMe for an 'office 2010' search for when clients ask about getting a copy, but it seems those with Office 2010 are just not keen to upgrade to 2013 and sell their old versions.

Here is the first copy I have seen in a while:

If you have an Office 365 account subscription for Office 2013, you can also install 2010.

Out of interest I logged into my office 365 account, Off 365 settings, install and manage software but it only seems to have the latest version of office (2013) - Is there somewhere else you can get Office 2010?

That only worked if you had 365 before 2013 was released.

PM me if you want a link. It still works if you kept the 2010 download (which I have). Then you just activate with your 365 credentials.

Just gave it a try on an account that was created Nov last year and could not get it to activate.

Is there a trick behind it?

You have a valid Office 365 email account with the office add-on? Not the consumer outlook.com version?

Ah, so many Office variations. I think what you need is Exchange online, and office as an add-on to this. I've recently deployed a couple of installs and have used with 2010 on XP machines
