Can Microsoft 365 and Office Pro 2021 exist on Win11 together?

Dell XPS 15  9510  with Win11 Home.

Purchased with MS Office Pro 2021 preinstalled (had difficulty actually getting it activated but OK now).

I'd like to install Microsoft 365 (licensed family version) for several reasons. Can MS 365 exist and run separately on my XPS 15?  I saw a MS post on this indicating that it usually is not possible unless the first product was an msi install.  What about with a Dell preinstall version (as mine is)?

Hi there,

 

Yes, you can install Microsoft 365 and individual applications for Office on the same system.

Not possible, you can have installed one or the other, but not both.

If you must run two versions of Office (not sure the purpose though) - install VM with separate version of Windows.

Somewhat related to this, it IS possible to install MS Office 365 and have it coexist with a previous (older) version of MS Office ...  at least on Win10.  

Specifically, I have Office 2010 Home/Student installed on Win10 21H1 on  Dell Studio 1558 laptop and installed Office 365 (Family Edn.) and the apps for the two versions of Office I've tried (PPT, Excel etc) don't seem to interfere with each other.
