Important: If you plan on using the Office Customization Tool (OCT), we recommend that you read the Office Customization Tool in Office 2010 documentation first. Office 2010 provides two architecture-specific versions of the OCT, one for 32-bit Office 2010 and one for 64-bit Office 2010. The 64-bit version of the OCT supports 64-bit client editions of Office 2010, and provides the same user interface, capabilities, and configurable settings as the 32-bit version. The OCT files are located in the Admin folder under the x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) folders, respectively. Download the appropriate file depending on whether you have 32-bit or 64-bit Office installed. Copy the entire \Admin folder into the folder that contains the installation image you are customizing. For example, if you installed the 32-bit edition of Office Professional Plus 2010 (volume edition), you would copy the entire 32-bit version of the Admin folder into the folder that contains the 32-bit Office Professional Plus 2010 source files.
