    Office 2010 Home & Student will not download & install.


    I tried to reinstall Office 2010 Home & Student to Win8.

    It downloaded OK, but did not complete the installation.

    No error code just said "Can't complete installation.

    You said "reinstall" -- was this installed before to Win8 DP? OR was it installed to another OS or PC? You need to ensure that you haven't already used up your three activations.

    Have you tried installing from a disc?

    I was trying to install it on a new computer running Win8.
    This was a the first time trying a reinstall.

    Don't have a disc.

    I updated my computer to Win8 & lost Office. I was trying to reinstall for the first time on the same computer with Win8.
