It also conflicts with my brand new (just released) MacBook Air, the operating system it was designed to be compatible with. I have had to uninstall this Microsoft programme from the Mac altogether and it is now flying!
I cannot vouch for MS Word and Excel, they may be OK with a Mac and I may have to use them but Outlook, at least, will never see my Mac again!
In the course of all my issues I have had the occasion to deal with both Apple and Microsoft support operations and the difference between the two is quite staggering. Apple really care that their customers are happy and love their products and nothing is too much trouble whereas Microsoft are arrogant, could give a damn and do their best to wriggle out of everything. I will leave the reader to decide who they would prefer to deal with!
Excel is Excel.
I don't really use Powerpoint, i'm going to guess it's pretty much the same as the PC version.
I bought the Business Edition so i could use my new Macbook for work e-mails, calendar and contacts as i can easily do with my Windows PC and iPhone.
Surely it's going to be a breeze setting up an account? After all, on the iPhone you just stick in a user name, password and a server name and you're away.
Not so. It turns out my employers version of Microsoft Exchange Server is pre-2007, and although the iPhone, and for that matter a PC running XP or Windows 7 can connect and talk to the server without a hitch, new versions of Office for Mac refuse to communicate with older versions of Microsoft Exchange. I basically have to wait for my employers to rollout an upgrade to their servers before I can use Outlook for my work account and that's not going to happening anytime soon. Pretty disappointing really. I could've saved money and a fair bit of investigatory time if i'd been aware of this before purchase. My fault, should've done the research.
Unless you REALLY need these products for compatibility save your money and sanity and buy something else instead.
This version, however, is the best I've ever experienced for the Mac, except for it being a bit buggy (although what software isn't?) and only comes with the 4 main programs - Work, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook.
To be honest, I only really bought it for Outlook but the other programs are much closer in looks to the Windows version and I'm pleasantly surprised, particularly as it also comes with visual basic for applications.
Amazon.co.uk is probably the cheapest (legal!) retailer for this version, so if you have a Mac and want Office for it, buy it here!
So I spent an additional 200 GBP (or there abouts) to get hold of the FULL version, including the outlook app, then to find the damn thing doesnt work!!! I get error after error when opening word, excel, powerpoint and Outlook wont even open!
I am running the correct OS, and can not understand why this software isnt working.
Its so far been a complete waste of my time and money :(
