    Hi, I have recently been experiencing instability with my system and have decided to wipe it and reinstall OS X for a few different reasons. I am wondering if it is possible to reinstall Microsoft Office 2011 without purchasing a new license?

    FWIW and perhaps of interest…

    I was having font problems after the initial install of Office 11. So when I reinstalled Office 11, I went the Custom Install route, thus forgoing Messenger, Remote Desktop, Visual Basic, Proofing Tools (except English), MS Document Connection, and Office Fonts.

    Since then, all has been sweetness and light…

    YMMV-

    What I did was I followed the microsoft instructions to completely uninstall, then reinstalled and it worked fine. Thanks! I should have done that custom install though...I ********* hate all the microjunk.
