System Requirements for Office 2010
INSIDE OUT Check for DirectX compatibility
Windows includes a diagnostic program that tells you at a glance which version of
DirectX your GPU is using. To use it, in the Start menu search box (or in the Run dialog
box if you’re using Windows XP) type dxdiag and then press Enter. On the Display tab,
shown here, the DirectX Diagnostic Tool shows the DirectX version in use.
To determine the amount of video memory, you need to visit a different dialog box.
In Windows 7, right-click the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. In the dialog box
that appears, click Advanced Settings. The Adapter tab in the next dialog box that
appears shows the relevant value as Dedicated Video Memory. Starting from Display in
Control Panel, follow similar steps to find this value in Windows XP or Windows Vista.
To run a 32-bit version of Office 2010, your computer must have one of the following
● Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)
