    Activating by phone will be fine if you have to --- especially if you say you have got rid of the old VISTA machine and want to install on a new one.

    You might not even have to since Ms Office seems to allow quite a few activations normally before throwing up the please contact Ms screen with nr of permissible activations exceeded type of message.
    In any case you probably can run it for 30 days before activating which is fine if you are just testing W8 as a Virtual Machine.

    Nothing working for me, tried all digital download versions I can get my hands on every single one fails with a bland "setup encountered an error" message, when I checked the logs in the temp folder each failure says:

    Error: Failed to install product: C:\MSOCache\All Users\{90140000-0115-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}-C\OfficeMUI.msi ErrorCode: 1603(0x643).

    Tried googling that error and attempted every solution I can find and nothing is working

    Hi there
    are you attempting to install a different language version to what your main windows language is.

    Try again to completely fresh install Windows RP in English (you cam always add language packs later) and then install Office 2010 (English).

    Afterwards you can also install the language pack(s) for Office 2010 of your choice.

    I say go for a complete W8 re-install -- even on modest hardware it should only take around 15 - 20 mins and you know then you've got a "totally UNHOSED" i.e Clean system.

    Ms should activate your office product again without a problem if it needs to be activated. I've never had problems with phone activation -- Ms are quite reasonable and know people re-install OS'es etc -- they just want to try and stop "Commercial or Large scale" piracy.

    cheers

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, it's not an activation issue, the install of 8 is clean from yesterday, not an upgrade of 7, the office I'm trying to use is simply a free 60 day trial from their website with new CD Key as provided by them. It's nothing to do with activation/piracy etc. etc. it's an install problem.

    Suggestion: Make sure the trial version you attempting to download is the right bit package...32bit or 64 bit. It took me awhile to figure that out doing the same thing on a PC at work. After about 30 minutes of tring I finally got it to take.

    Yep I already tried both, 64bit should work fine as that's the version of my OS and what I had with 7 but I tried 32bit just to be sure. I think it's more likely to be a permissions issue, which I'm working on

    I did not uninstall the Home & Student from that Vista computer. Computer just went kaput.

    Does that mean I have that license back and that I have used only 1 license out of 3 ?
    You are allowed to activate Office on 3 machines at a time.

    There is no explicit de-activation on an old machine, so you may have to activate new installs by telephone.
