Microsoft Windows License For Mac


These instructions may help with troubleshooting activation by removing all Office license files from your Mac. For example, if you previously installed a one-time purchase of Office for Mac and have switched to Office 365, you may not be seeing subscription features because your copy of Office is still using your old license. One-time Office licenses (also known as perpetual), such as Office 2019 Home & Business, Office 2019 Home & Student, Office 2016 Home & Business, Office 2016 Home & Student, and Volume License are not compatible with Office apps downloaded from the Mac App Store. These licenses can only be used with Office apps downloaded directly from Microsoft.


Sorry to say but i think you will find that O365 will end up being cheaper if you are having office on both the Mac OS and the Win OS for each person. O365 should give each user up to 5 machines covering both (depending on version). Buying any type of VL or Retail will cost about $200 for most recent version of Win or Mac H&B (VL will be more). So if you provide each person two copies it will be $400.

How long will you stay on that Version? Office for Mac is 2011 and will probably have a new release soon. If you want to be on the most current then O365 hands down will be cheaper.

You will need to look at how long before you would have to upgrade each of the office products. Not to mention for Retail having licensing limitations.

I do not know what the Government option will provide as a price compared to VL and O365.
