@jogre  , Hi, my friend went ahead and bought Office365 Personal. It was easy to set up on his new laptop, fresh out of the box. New MS account created during install, and used that for installing office as well.

 

But his older laptop is being a challenge. It signs in at startup with a local account, and when I open a browser and sign in to the MS portal there I can't see where to install Office365.

 

Do I have to use the MS account at startup as well and ditch the local account? I'm wondering if I should have done the old laptop first.

Portal being this site here? https://support.office.com/en-us/article/download-and-install-or-reinstall-office-365-or-office-2019-on-a-pc-or-mac-4414eaaf-0478-48be-9c42-23adc4716658 

 

Local/Microsoft Account should be irrelevant.

Thank you @jogre , I was on microsoft.com instead of office.com. I can see an Install option now. Should I uninstall Office2007 first or just leave it there in case the sub lapses?

Might get an error about different client types (MSI for 2007, Click-to-run for the 365 instance).

OK, I'll uninstall 2007 first, thank you.

@jogre I know it will probably never happen because the mothership will be worried about businesses cheaping on licensing,  but for the love of all that's holy 365 home/personal needs to support custom domains for us geeks.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Tongue firmly stuck in cheek but that sounds suspiciously like a business requirement! I can think of arguments for and against, but until you put an email address in 365 I don't think you'd get too much value from that. Happy to be proven wrong! I also don't have too much experience with HUP so I'm not familiar with whether it runs out of Portal.office.com like the business plans.
