    Hi

    Wondered if anyone had the same problem as me, and more importantly knew how to fix it.

    Purchased windows 8 Pro and install on latest version of Parallels 8 fully updated.

    Tried to re-install my office 2010 professional plus, but it states that this app can't be installed on windows 8, doesn't matter which setup version I try. Microsoft have been thoroughly unhelpful.

    Office can't be downloaded it seems as my product key does not belong to a downloadable version, yes it is legitimate before you ask.

    Any thoughts? I have the original DVD, the original 25 key code, which worked fine on my windows 7 - but now - no good!

    Eventually solved the problem.

    I had to find the on-line download file, the DVD would not work at all. Then my key worked so all done.
