Was Office 2011 pre-installed on your old computer, or do you have an installation disk for it?

Thanks. I just bought a new iMac, transferred all my date from my MacBook Air but can't open MS Office 2011

It asks for a product key which I no longer have.
Microsoft Office Technician: Bryan, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

I see; Office 2011 will no longer work properly on newer Mac OS versions so even if we were to recover the product key, it wouldn't be of much help. Instead, I can connect to your screen and install Office 2016 without you having to pay to purchase it. Thanks; let me know.

For security reasons I prefer not to go this route. Can you send me a key that I can use to open a trial version?
Microsoft Office Technician: Bryan, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

Sorry; there's no key available for a trial version. Let me open up your question to our other experts who will be able to assist further; you will be automatically notified by email when another expert picks this up.

> my licensed version of MS Office 2011 no longer works

The license of Office 2011 can be moved to another computer, if the old computer still has the Office installed.

Where is the old Mac, still got Office 2011 installed at the moment? Working?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I still have the laptop and it's still working fine.
Microsoft Office Technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 6 months ago

Cool. Then two remote sessions are required to retrieve the license from old Mac and apply it to the new Mac. I may offer you 25 % off for each session as we need to do it together. If you agree, I will send the offer. Thanks.
