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.

Tully :cry:

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.

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.

Hi there
both x-86 and x-64 completely compatable.

Uninstall Office completely and re-install.

The St. Pat's Day Parade was one of the largest in history!

I did as you asked & Received this this message as I tried to download the Office 2010 Home & Student.

"This program has copatability problems!
Please click on the item below to find the problem"

I did & revceived this answer;

"No answer was found, Microsoft will contact you when one is found"

Boy! If that isn't the greatest "Put Off" I have ever received!

A MAJOR PROBLEM!

I am sorry I ever started this Beta Test!

All of a sudden my Music APP is in German & it doesn't matter because the sound doesn't work either!

I was using Office 2010 on my computer under WIN7. That was the first installation.
Then I installed Win8 WCP Copy 8250 & lost Office 2010 installation.
I have tried to reinstall Office 2010 Home & Student several times & it has failed each time.
I receive an error "This program has compatibility problems."

Then a Click box appears that says "Click here for help" I clicked & received the notice "No solution to this problem, Microsoft will contact you when a solution is found"

It this a program software problem or is it a activation problem?

Looked all over the Microsoft webs & NOTHING on running Office 2010 under Win8 64bit.

Computer is useless if I don't have Office running!
