MS Office for mac re-install problem
Hi all, I'm new here, and new to macs (after 30yrs on PCs!).
I bought an iMac 2006, and upgraded it to 10.7.5 - it came pre-loaded with Office 2011.
I just upgraded to an iMac 2011 i5 and restored all my apps etc with time machine. However, now, Office wants me to re-enter the key, which of course I don't have, since the guy who sold me the first iMac didn't give me the installation disks.
Is there a way round this?
thanks for any advice!
However, if you prefer something for free, I recommend LibreOffice version 4.1 which you can download from here. It's compatible with MS Office 2011 and also the Windows version of Office.
Also, another bit of advice: I would not use anything left over from the iMac you purchased but instead would start clean. That of course is up to you.
And... Welcome to the Mac Forums.
Time to "pay the piper" for your own copy of MS Office...or you can try some other MS Office "equivalents"...such as:
- Libre Office
- Open Office
- Neo Office
All of these alternatives are free...and compatible with previously created MS Office files.;)
thanks guys, will check them out.
