Steps for downloading, installing and activating Office Setup
Over the years, the requirements of the home users and businesses changed; and to meet them both, Microsoft Office has came up with different Office versions with two categories, i.e. home and professional. The features of both home and professional Office versions are obviously different.
Almost all the Office versions are also available for multiple users. This means, you can buy a single suite and install it on a number of PCs. Once purchased, you need to perform three processes in order to get any of the Office setup versions to your PC. These processes are:
Whether you have purchased Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 365, Office 2010 or any other version, just remember that each one of them needs different system specification. Also make sure that there is no other Office version already installed on the device you are installing MS Office Setup.
You can purchase any of the Office versions by two mediums:
In case of offline purchase, you will get an Office retail card, on the back of which Office product key is mentioned.
