Hamilton College subscribes to the Microsoft Campus Agreement volume licensing program for the Microsoft Office applications used on campus (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). This agreement includes “Work at Home” rights for Office according to the following terms and conditions:
Faculty and staff who are licensed to use the particular product at school, have the right to run one copy of that product on a home PC that they own or lease for school-related purposes only.(Microsoft Campus and School v.3.2b, 2004).
Your DVD is good for two installations: the original installation on your home machine and a reinstall if necessary.
Please do not use this DVD to install Microsoft Office on your college-owned computer.
NOTE: If you received two discs in your “at home” DVD pack, please use the DVD labeled Microsoft Office for Mac Standard 2011 (Product Key Required). The other DVD is for installing Microsoft Communicator for Mac 2011.
Processor Intel Processor
Operating System Mac OS X version 10.5.8 or later
Memory 1 GB RAM
Disk Space Minimum 2.5 GB of free hard-disk space required
Disk Drive DVD drive
On the back of the DVD sleeve you will find a 25 character alphanumeric code called a product key, similar to the one shown below. Keep this product key in a safe place, it is a unique code needed to install Office and to verify your license with Microsoft.
NOTE: You must be logged in as an administrator on the computer in order to proceed.
Before installing Office 2011, you must uninstall any older versions of Microsoft Office currently installed on your computer. If you do not have an older version of Office on your computer, skip ahead to the Install Office 2011 section. If you do have an older version of Office on your computer, uninstall it by dragging the Microsoft Office XX folder in the Applications folder to the trash.
We recommend a custom installation to provide the necessary tools, templates, and text converters you are accustomed to using on your college-owned computer.
