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 Office 2016.

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.
  • Thanks, I will try this. Is this documented somewhere on an MS page too, so I can use it as reference? – vilmarci Jun 29 '17 at 7:38

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.
