Office 2010 Support Going Away

This fall Microsoft will be ending support for Office 2010 as part of it's Office product life cycle.  In response to these upcoming changes, we will also be dropping support for Office Office Logo2010 and assisting those affected in the transition to Office 2016.  If you or someone else in your office is still running Office 2010, we strongly encourage you to upgrade to Office 2016 at your earliest convenience. 

If you're not sure what version of Office you have, Microsoft has online instructions on how to locate your Office version.

Depending on where your computer is located, the upgrade method will vary:

On Campus

If you are located on campus and have a computer supported by Ag Communication, you can start the software upgrade at your convenience using the following steps:

  • Navigate to Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft System Center and select Software Center
  • In the window that appears, make sure the Available Software tab is highlighted and then check the box next to Ag_Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016.  Click on the Install button in the lower right hand corner to start the installation.

Software Center - Office

The total installation time should be approximately 20 - 30 minutes.

If you are located on campus and are supported by Ag Communication but do not see the Software Center, please contact us so that we can assist you.  If you have a computer that is NOT supported by Ag Communication, please contact NDSU Software Licensing  or your departmental technical support person to obtain a copy of the installation software.

Off Campus

For county and REC computers, an Ag technician will need to remotely connect to their computer and install Office 2016 over the network utilizing our instant remote support tool.  Please contact the Ag technicians directly to schedule a time to perform the upgrade.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
