I am trying to...

I am trying to install Office 2016 onto my MacBook Air. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, how old is your MacBook Air and what operating system are you running?

Forgive the wait. I believe the MacBook Air is 4 or 5 years old. I am using Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I just had the contents of my older MacBook transferred to the Air. I just turned it on to see what system it was running.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I deleated the Word and Office files that the technitions installed--I followed the instructions online.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac expert to know before I connect you?

The older MacBook was running on OSX 10.7.5

When you said "deleted the office files". You mean the office installer they may have left on the desktop for you? Did you already check your trash because if you "accidentally" deleted something, it would still be in the trash. You would have to go into the trash and delete it purposely after so it should hopefully still be in there. Let me know.

If not, do you have access to the microsoft office website to re-download the files?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
