Windows 7 does not include Microsoft Office Input Method Editor (IME) 2010. Therefore, when you start the next version of Office on a computer that is running Windows 7, and then you start IME, an earlier version of IME is started. However, Windows 8 includes a newer IME.
Note IME 2010 is included in Microsoft Office 2010.
This issue occurs because neither Windows 7 nor the next version of Office includes IME 2010.
You can obtain IME 2010 by using one of the following methods.
Install IME 2010 by using Windows Update. You will be able to download IME 2010 as an optional update when you check for updates by using Microsoft Update.
