    So at my office one of the project managers recieved a new alum. iMac and we installed a new version of Office 08 on there after Migrating all his old files from his old iMac.

    Now his old iMac is being used by our new PM and when I go to install Office Mac 2008 it will not allow me to do a clean install (as in entering a new Product Key) just an Upgrade. And if I do just do the upgrade they cannot have Word open at the same time.

    How can I do a clean install?

    Got it to work....but in such a dirty fashion. I just had to search for Microsoft in spotlight and then delete all those files.

    I hated to do it but it worked.
