System Requirements

Anyone purchasing the software should check in advance to make sure the computer intended for installation meets the system requirements for Office 2016. Any previous version of Office, including any trial version, should be uninstalled. Note that Office 2016 will only install on Windows 7 or later (not under XP or Vista).

Please note that we will record your response, and Microsoft as well is keeping a list of all from Fredonia who avail themselves of MS Office using credentials supplied to Fredonia for this purpose.
