Install with Upgrade CD

If you are using an "upgrade" version of Office and are trying to install Office, but no longer have the older version installed, follow these steps:

  1. Install from the new UPGRADE CD
  2. Follow the Instructions
  3. When instructed, insert the original CD (E.g. Office:mac Upgrade 2001)
  4. Browse to the Microsoft Office FOLDER on the original 'CD' (POINTING TO THE 'CD' does not work)
  5. Install the updates (Using AutoUpdater under Help in any Office application will be fully automatic).

Note Office 2011 does not have an upgrade program. New pricing reflects this change.

For a successful install and update of Office for Mac 2008 see Steps for a successful upgrade of Office 2008 and Dos and Don'ts for a good install.
