Office not working on new iMac

Just got the new 27" and when I migrated the applications from my old macbook, I can't seem to open up the Office apps (Word, Excel..)

A window pops up called Microsoft office setup assistant and it asks me to create an office identity which doesn't even seem to work. When I hit continue it "Quits unexpectedly"

I'm assuming it's a update issue? But it won't even give me the option to update anything.

A lot of applications cannot be successfully migrated and must be reinstalled. I expect that Microsoft Office is one of them.

When I have migrated, I never needed the CD. I only needed the licensing key. I keep all of my licensing keys in my 1Password vault.

The vast majority of 3rd party software is now available for download off of the companies site. The licensing key is typically the only thing necessary to keep.
