I need to make a compatibility test, so I installed Office 2016 on my Windows 7 test pc, and tried to build up my working environment. It seems that I cannot install Sharepoint Designer 2010. I tried both 32 and 64 bit versions, but after I launch the installers, nothing happens.
Yes, it's compatible but you should first install
SharePoint Designer 2010 before installing
So in your case, to can install and work with
SharePoint Designer 2010 beside
Office 2016, try to do the following:
- Uninstall Office 2016.
- Install SharePoint Designer 2010 (preferred x64).
- Install Office 2016.
You can install and work with the SharePoint Designer 2010 parallel to the Office 2016.
I have development server runs on Windows 7 X64 bit which has Office 2016 and SharePoint Designer 2010 X32 bit.
