If it takes that much time, the download will not do properly, and you will not be able to install it.

Download the file, save it to a CD or USB drive.

Shefin :

Then, install it on your computer.

Shefin :

Are you able to get help from your friend, or any nearby technician in order to get the software downloaded from a different place?

Customer:

Shefin :

Otherwise, you have to order Microsoft Office CD, and not the product key.

Customer:

does that mean i will need to pay out again

Shefin :

From where did you purchase the product key?

Customer:

Argos and it is non returnable

Shefin :

If so, you will not be able to get the CD.

However, I would suggest you Microsoft, inform the issue and ask for a CD or trial CD.

Customer:

Please wait a minute, so that I can provide you the contact information.

Inform them that you have purchased the product key, but unable to download it because of some issues.

Inform that you have tried everything, but unable to download it because of the internet connection.

Contact them at 0844(NNN) NNN-NNNN
