Microsoft is providing free resources designed to streamline the adoption of the 64-bit (x64) version of Office 2010. This model describes and illustrates the 64-bit client installation of Microsoft Office 2010.

WOW64 is the x86 emulator that enables 32-bit Windows-based applications to run seamlessly on 64-bit Windows systems. Office 2010 lets users continue to use existing 32-bit Microsoft ActiveX Controls, Component Object Model (COM) add-ins, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA),” an excerpt from the poster reads.
