Hi,
Used time machine to get my MS office 2011 back on my new mac book pro. However it pops an error window stating that this application wont work under mavericks.. I recall there was a pacth update exclusively to solve this issue from either apple or MS, but cant find that pacth now.
I tried updating to the latest version of MS office but then it ask me for a product key which i cant use anymore.
I know this is a common issue but cant find the correct solution that will work for me.
Thanks for your help in advance.
