I bought office 2008 for my macbook and installed it but when i try to open word, powerpoint, excel, or entourage it says that it wasn't installed correctly and to uninstall and install it again. I have done this 3 times and it still says the same thing. What's wrong?

I had that problem too once. You need to delete some certain files in your Library after uninstall, restart and then install again. Search on google for the solution, it is out there

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Are you using the uninstaller? You do need to do that and NOT simply drag to Trash! Also have you installed a Trial version?

First, make sure you follow harry's advice about using the MS uninstaller. Next, make sure that you have "Rosetta" on your MacBook as Office 2008 will not install correctly without it.

It would help everyone here when you post if you included which version of OS X you're using and also information about your machine.
