Office 2010 - style folder

Jun 25, 2010 at 7:26 AM


I am using BibWord styles for a few months. It works great on Office 2007 and 2010 beta 64bit.

Now I updated my beta version to Office 2010 32bit (still on trial) but I can’t find the style folder.

Where is the new folder?

It should be in the same place.

If you can't find the directory, just do a search for "winword.exe", and starting from the directory where that file is, go to the "bibliography" => "style" directory.

Note that if you install a 32-bit application in a 64-bit system, it will be located in the "Program Files (x86)" directory instead of the "Program Files" directory.

Thanks for the reply but it does not help me.

I try your suggestion before posting the subject but there is no regular installation directory.

The installation is very strange, the links for Word from the start menu is (including the quotation marks):

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\Virtualization Handler\CVH.EXE" "Microsoft Word 2010 9014006104090000"

I just reread your original post. You are using a trial version of Office 2010. The trial versions, unlike the full versions, use a new technology called "Click-to-Run" and are completely virtualized. Information on click-and-run can be found at

According to the text in the above link, you should have a virtual Q-drive somewhere on your system. It's doubtful that you will be able to access it though. So I doubt you will be able to run other/adapted styles.

OK, thanks.

Now I understand that I should by the regular version and should not pay for license for the trail version.

So is there a Solution for this? Is it possible to access the virtual drive?

Yes there is a solution. You should uninstall your "Click-to-Run" copy and install the regular copy. You can download the regular copy by entering your download web page. Click on "Advanced Options" under the "download Now" button. In this window you can choose what is the version that you want to download. You should download 32-bit or 64-bit but not Click to Run.
