Microsoft has released an update bringing Microsoft Office 2010 migration support to User State Migration Tool (USMT) 4.0. USMT 4.0, with the latest update, now supports the following Office migration scenarios:

USMT 4.0 for Office 2010

There're still a few scenarios which're not supported by USMT. The tool can't migrate settings across architecture platforms for Office, i.e. Office 2003 to Office 2010 64 bit isn't supported. Additionally USMT doesn't support migrating settings to a version of Office that's earlier than the version that's currently installed on the source computer.

The KB2023591 article details limitations for the Office migrations, other USMT improvements included in this update, and USMT update installation instructions.

You should be aware of these cautions for Office 2010 migrations:

  • Not all Word settings will be migrated to a Word 2010 installation
  • If Office is launched on the destination PC prior to the migration most of the user settings will not be migrated
  • USMT mayn't be aware of all or your customization, some further customization of USMT might be required to fit your particular scenario
