Installing the Microsoft Outlook 2010 in computers that don’t meet with the aforementioned requirements will bring about unwanted complications which might end up in data or system corruption.
The following points discussed below will help the users to install the Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 in your computer:

Close or suspend programs
The running of important resource intensive programs and application during the installation of a major application suite like the Microsoft Office 2010 might sometimes adversely affect the running programs and the installation process. So, to avoid issues during the installation process and to ensure a smooth and error free installation of the Microsoft Office 2010 in your computer, the users are advised to close or suspend all important programs and save ongoing works prior to the installation of Microsoft Office 2010 in their systems.
Scan the system
If issues like virus infections, system file errors and registry errors are valid in a system, they can cause troubles during the installation of the Microsoft Office 2010 suite which might end up in application or data corruption. All the users who are installing the Microsoft Office 2010 are therefore recommended to scan and fix all the issues in their systems using suitable software programs and supplied system tools like the system file checker to ensure smooth and error free installation of the Microsoft Office 2010 program.
The install set-up of the Microsoft Office 2010 is provided with a couple of options to customize the installation according to the user’s needs and requirements. The install set-up of the Microsoft Office 2010 allows the users to select either an upgrade install or a customized install. Selecting the upgrade option will upgrade the previous versions of the Microsoft Office suite installed in the system to the Microsoft Office 2010 version and will replace all the files of the previous versions. The 'Customize' option in the set-up windows of the Microsoft Office 2010 allows the users to install the Microsoft Office 2010 in a separate directory without affecting the previous versions of Microsoft Office installed in the system. The users who are installing the Microsoft Office 2010 for testing purposes and those who still need the previous versions of Microsoft Office to carry out their work are advised to select the 'Customize' option and install the Microsoft Office 2010 to a separate directory other than the one in which the previous versions of Microsoft Office are installed. This will allow the users to work on both Microsoft Office versions i.e. previous versions and the Microsoft Office 2010 without affecting each other’s working and performance.
