One of our end users has a Mac and upon trying to access the Excel file we sent him, he is unable to as he does not have Microsoft Office installed.
His laptop is an Apple MacBook Air. And, he is running OS X El Capitan.
When he tries to install Office 2008 on the OS listed above, he is getting the error message posted below.
The installation failed. The installer could not install the software. The Installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install.
Office Version on Apple Mac OS/X
Checked wikipedia and gained quick familiarity with the versions of Office available for Mac OS/X
We have an unused license for Office 2011 and went with that one.
There are a couple of ideas on the Internet on how to solve this problem.
The ideas include:
- Copying the installer ( dmg ) from the DVD unto your computer
These ideas were fruitless to us.
