Updating windows 2016 to windows xp
It of course never hurts to make a backup of your Outlook data first.
If you are having difficulties removing your current version of Office via Control Panel, you can use the Fix It from the Microsoft KB article below which matches with the version that you wish to uninstall: When you are currently using an Office 365 installation of Office 2013, then upgrading to Office 2016 is going to be really easy as it will be offered as a regular update.
By default, it will install the 32-bit edition unless you specifically tell it not to.
If the 32-bit edition is what you want (again; this is recommended), then just follow the setup instructions and move to the next section in this guide.
When you start Outlook for the first time after the upgrade, the startup could take some time.
This is because your previous settings are being migrated.
If you are an Office 365 subscriber and not yet ready to upgrade, you can postpone the automatic upgrade so you can prepare for it first.
You’ll find the setting under: Computer Configuration-If you were using Outlook Business Contact Manager (BCM) with Outlook, then you’ll no longer be able to use it with Office 2016.
BCM will not be updated for Office 2016 compatibility.
If you do not plan to use any of the Office applications of a previous version of Office, it is recommended to completely uninstall the Office suite before starting the installation process of Office 2016 unless you are using Office 365.
This is because an upgrade process will still leave several (support) components installed.
