Bought a new Lenovo yoga with windows 8.1 and am trying to install office 2007.
I got the download from Microsoft and my product key (I still have the cd and packaging) was accepted.
When I open the download, the first box that comes up is "enter your product key" and you have a choice to enter it or just continue. However, on my laptop, this box is small and I am not able to maximize/scroll/or select anything in it. I can only see the instructions "Although you are not required.......click the help button" and I cant see or select the box to enter the product key, the help button or the continue button. Using the mouse or the touch screen will only allow my to close the box and nothing more.
Thinking that this might just be a bad download, I have tried my disk on another new windows 8.0 laptop that has a disc drive (cd works fine and can proceed as normal), and have networked both laptops. When I run the cd from the 8.1 laptop, the same problem with the box occurs.
Is this an 8.1 problem or a setting on my laptop?
I uninstalled the 365 trial version and rebooted before doing all of this.
