    I just got a new MacBook Air and transferred all of my stuff from my unibody MacBook. I use MS Office for Mac a lot and when I would launch any office app on the MBA, I'd get a database error, but it worked for the most part. Like an idiot, I decided that I would try and fix it so I reinstalled Office and now I can't get past the Create an Identity screen in the Setup Assistant. I tried deleting all of the Office plist files and reinstalling but that hasn't worked. The Office suite is an iso download from my company's IT website. I followed their instructions and burned the iso file to a CD and tried to install it that way but still no go.

    Does anyone have any insights? This reminds me of why I switched away from Windows in the first place.

    Thanks for any help.

    You should uninstall Office using the included uninstaller.
