I have tried to install Office 2010 Home & Student several times in Win8.
I get thet the error that says it is not compatible with Win8.

Is this true or am I doing something wrong?

I have it running on my Win7 computer.

Both are legit copies. I feel cheated that I spent the money & can't use it!

:mad:

I wanted to update a resume yesterday and decided to install my copy of Office Professional Plus 2010 installed fine and so far working normal. This is a copy I acquired from the Microsoft Home Use Program and downloaded from Digital River installed via USB stick on my Toshiba laptop.

Have no idea what it could be, since I have installed this and Office 2007 on Windows 8 with no problems.

Even if it is legit you need to check the platform of your OS if x32/x64 to your Office 2012 x32/x64 to run and install with no error. :thumb:

I talked to MS Techs & they helped me install it!

It is working OK! It was a problem with the KEY!

Even MS Office 97 installs without problems, compatibility settings not required, except for an old bug in the Workgroup Admin installation for Access, which is well documented.

First time I have ever had problems loading MS software & I go back to Win95!

I think the keys are getting to many characters which make it easy to mistype!
