Mary asks…

How do I download microsoft office 2010 onto my macbook?

Recently I bought the 2010 Microsoft Office for home and students online. I downloaded the online link they sent me, but my computer doesn’t seem to be able to read the file. I’ve gotten the backup disk, but the installations aren’t automatically starting like they should and none of the applications I have seem to be compatible with reading anything on the disk. Did I buy the wrong version of Microsoft Office, especially since I don’t have Windows?

Summer answers:

Yes, you purchased the Windows version. There is no Office 2010 for Mac. The latest is Office for Mac 2008. Office for Mac 2011 will be coming out soon. If you purchase Office for Mac 2008 now, you will receive a free upgrade to Office for Mac 2011. Here’s the link:

Nancy asks…

Is there an Open Office equivalent to Microsoft Office 2010?

I have a college class that requires Microsoft 2010 – but I can’t afford it. I have Open Office 3.3 but there is no way to save a file in the 2010 format – just the 95, 97, 2000 etc. Any ideas? Thanks.

Summer answers:

You can use the Office 2010 trial for 60 days, more than enough time to find a way to actually pay for it:

I question why your class doesn’t accept the older .XLS format.

Mandy asks…

Whats the difference between Microsoft Office 2010 Professional & Professional Plus?

I heard theres two types, but im not sure if i understood right, is there a such thing as those two?
Microsoft Office 2010 Proffesional
Microsoft Office 2010 Proffesional Plus

Summer answers:

MS Office Professional Plus allows for three licenses in one household vs. One license for MS Office Professional. There are some other features also, but not likely as important as the multiple licensing.

Thomas asks…

I bought microsoft office 2010 online at a student discount and downloaded it. Can I use it on 2 computers?

I went to digital river and purchased the microsoft office 2010 at a discounted student price. I have 2 computers, and use both of them for school. Can I use that product key they gave me for both computers or will I have to buy another one?

Summer answers:

Read the license. I believe Office is sold with a 3 computer license.
