I tried the link and registered myself on trial bases, but when I try to download the software, there was a problem with compatibility issue with 64-bit. I did not go further than that. I have excel 2010 and window 7.

The real and critical question is: is this version the real deal? Is it the same as the desktop -full version, or as before it has limited functionality? If it has limited functionality, I do not think it is going to appeal to many users

It works on 64 bit

I have windows 7 x64 on desktop and laptop.I am using the preview on bitb, perfectly well. Priorto this i used office 2007 and had installed but removed the office 2010 preview. The system downloads the core program and as much of the program as it needs to do the tasks you are wanting to do. Then you can use it offline as well. It seems to be the full version. Fancy features need a download the first time you use them, but then previous versions needed the original dvd the first time you used them.
