SO installed rather tried for me after having some problems It installed but the license number was not recognized by Microsoft, so it installed as a trial version. I first noticed that the CD case was not a regular software-type case the "jewel boxes" but more like a DVD case I guess this shouldn't have raised an issue because even my own software company uses the DVD style case. But there was no Microsoft hologram label on the case.
Another red flag. Oh, yes, the seller said the case was not original. But then how would the Microsoft label have been moved? After further inspection I realized there was a misspelled word on the "Official" Microsoft label. I don't recall what word but it was plainly obvious. And my SO got her money back.
The seller made conflicting remarks "it was one-off sale, it was their own software from some time back" but "no one else had complained that the CD did not install" so, how many other people have you sold these CDs to? Eventually I did purchase Office and installed on my laptop. I elected to go with the annual subscription rather than outright purchase because the subscription provides updates as long as I subscribe. But if this had not installed locally I mean, if it had been a web-based app I would not have purchased as I am a heavy user of Excel and Access and wanted these locally installed.
Now that I have the legitimate license for Office the Office runs as well in full mode, not trial. Interesting thing is that the owner is identified as a university. I use it anyway since my license permits running older versions whilst on the same hardware , I switch back and forth all the time between Excel and the newer version.
All this to say that it was illegitimate software that was purchased. Probably the case for most software sold second-hand like this. Personally I wouldn't buy stuff like that, too much risk of viruses, malware, etc. Too many red flags.

Check the negative seller ratings to see if you can get any hints. Quote Post by Doug E. They are also selling complete Microsoft accounts with the software tied to it. That is why they don't give you key and you cannot use it to extend a current subscription. Will they work? Get a legit copy The permanent license covers only one computer.
And as others have said, they're probably reselling an Office download, which is why you can't enter your own email address for it. The legality of such reselling is questionable, but the more important thing is you said you didn't want a subscription and Office is a subscription. Contact M6WIQ. The legal Caveat At least in the UK is that you are also 'buying' the motherboard with the exception that the seller will only allow it to be collected from them if you so desire to have a broken motherboard Full license with no monthly subscription.
That is the only reason I still run Office at home. Best Price. Reply 1.pierreducalvet.ca/185693.php
