    Microsoft Word Issue?I need help ASAP DX

    I recently got a new laptop, which is Windows 8. However, when word expired I had to buy it. It installed perfectly on the Mac (However the Mac is currently un-usable because the keyboard is dead :/), and it said that Windows 8 encountered a problem trying to install it on the laptop. Now I cant even so much as click on word without the box popping up saying windows encountered a problem, and I seriously need word like ASAP :/

    So...Anyone know how to fix it so that I can type up my paper for school? :/ (In my defense, she assigned it yesterday and I was EXTREMELY busy yesterday so I didnt have a chance to try and do it, so :P)

    Can you stick a USB KB onto your MAC? Because in order to fix the PC version, you will have to run through some hoops.

    Try doing a System Restore on the Windows 8 machine, to BEFORE you bought the Word. Is it just WORD or is it Office 2010/2013? All I know is that even if Office 2010 runs out of time, you can still USE it, even though it will nag you.

    Try Restoring it, and use what Key they gave you to activate it. Otherwise, you will have to totally remove all vestiges of Office or Word from your system and then a few SFC /scannow.

    Do a system restore to a point well before you lost the ability to use even the Trial Version.

    If you are an Apple user and not sure how to get to System Restore, you can usually get to it from the Control Panel, just right click on your Desktop anywhere there is nothing, and choose Perionalization. Then go into where it says "Change Desktop Icons" and make sure the Control Panel is not hidden, you may want to show the rest of the icons there too. Once you have Control Panel on the desktop, you can open it and search for System Restore, run that and find a point from a few weeks ago.
