Microsoft office - home and student for Mac?!?!?!

If anybody can help me that would be a great big huge help!
Basically i have just got my first Apple MacBook and i have the Pro version, so when i bought it i found out that it doesn't already have an office or word type of product in it, so i decided to buy microsoft office home and student for mac, which i was told would be fine on my macbook.
when i installed it yesterday i decided to start working on a word document and tried to save it onto my usual memory stick that i generally use all the time. Upon saving it and trying to reopen it, it wouldnt let me do this...came up with this ...

If anyone could help me that would be fantastic!
Thanks for reading

I was looking for help with this same problem on my Wifes MBP but with Excel, while I was looking for solutions, I tried installing Messenger again, fixing disk permissions with disk utility, as well as other things, none worked. Then I was looking for where this nasty mbukernel file lived.
That was when I noticed that "Microsoft" was in the /Applications folder instead of the "/Applications/Microsoft Office 2011", so I moved the Microsoft back into the office folder and wallah it all works as intended.
Hopefully that will help yourself and others with this obscure problem.

    Just to be clear, Office 2010 is for Windows.  Office 2011 is for Mac.  If you actually are trying to install Office 2010, you'll need to have installed Windows on your Mac either through Boot Camp or in a virtual machine.

  • Trouble installing Microsoft Office home and student 2010

    I'm new to Apple, i'm trying to insatl Microsoft office home and student 2010 onto my mac but it keeps saying "you can't open the application "setup.exe" because microsoft windows does not support the application"
    could anyone help?
    Kind regards

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    It looks like you are trying to install Office 2010 on OS X. That's not possible because that version is for Windows, so you have to install Windows on your Mac. As you are going to use it only for Microsoft Office, download Parallels, VMware Fusion or VirtualBox, and install Windows on a virtual machine.
    Another option is to purchase Office for Mac >

    Upgraded to Lion.  Microsoft office home and student 2007 not compatible.  what do i need to do to be able to access office files?

    RRFS is correct, however you are incorrect. There is no such thing as MS Office for Mac 2007, your software is probably MS Office for Mac 2004! You can upgrade to MS Office for Mac 2011 for as little as $97 at or Amazon has it for $90.00.
    Once you have upgraded all of your Office data files can then be opened.

  • Error 1704 - Can't install Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007

    I am attempting to install Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 on my windows 8.
    I ran the setup like normal and it went 100% but froze and nothing else happened.
    I then looked into a few threads and saw that I should run it in compatibility mode. When I did this I got an error message, which stated, "Error 1704. An installation for Microsoft Office Office 64-bit components 2007 is currently suspended. You must
    undo these changes made by that installation to continue. Do you want to undo those changes?"
    Seems simple, but when I click yes, the error message immediately comes back up (which just continues no matter how many times I press yes. So I press no and it ends....
    I don't know much about computers but I need to get my resume in to a job ASAP!

    Because it is a Windows version of MS Office. You will need a Mac version, such as listed below.

  • Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010

    I bought the family pack of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 and every time I try to install it on my computer it cancels and goes to this message saying "Setup has stopped working" "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will
    close the program and notify you if a solution is available. I also already have word installed on my computer and every time I click the desktop icon it goes to the windows installer and prepares to install , but then it say fatal error during installation. 
    Can anyone help with this problem?

    Open Control Panel --> Programs and Features, remove any Office program you find. If you have problem when remove these programs, you can use the Fix-it Utility in the following support artcile:

    After that, try run setup again.

  • Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 Product Key doesnt work

    My Microsoft home and student 2010 key isn't working. I am entering the key that was printed off the internet from Microsoft when I purchased it off the Microsoft website. I also had to restart my computer, when I went to the Microsoft website to download
    the program it verified the key and said it was valid. I've read that it can only be put on 3 computers but I only have one. I also have not shared the code with anyone.

    Hi ampresume,
    Welcome to the HP Support Forums! 
    I am  sorry to hear that you lost your Microsoft Office 2007 when you did your system recovery. You will need to contact Microsoft Office support for help with your office.
    In the meantime, here is some information from Microsoft for Microsoft Office 2007 that explains how to get the Product key.
    I hope this helps, please let me know how it goes.
    Thank you and have a nice day!

  • I do not have Windows XP; I have Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010. How do I set-up "Do Not Track", "Private Browsing", "Clear Recent History" and "Forget this Site." The email I got today from Firefox was how to install on XP. Thanks, Bill Hardin

    I don't know any more to say about the subject. I am not a computer guru.

    Hi Bill, your version of Windows depends on the age of your PC. If it's fairly recent, you may have Windows 7, and if it's a few years old, you may have Windows Vista. Windows XP was released in 2002, but it is still common on business machines. Based on the information in your post, you have Windows 7.
    The features you are asking about are available in Firefox's menus. When you are running Firefox, you can access the Options dialog either of these ways:
    orange Firefox button > Options
    classic Tools menu > Options
    Please refer to the instructions you have for the rest of the story.
