Hi. Maybe one of you Einsteins could offer me a bit of advice?
I bought Office 2007 as a download (via MediaFire) and was emailed step-by-step instructions on how to install it on my Windows 10 Professional PC, but what's happening is nothing like the screens and dialogue boxes shown in the instructions.
For a start, when the download itself was complete, I was asked by my PC how I wanted to open the big file and was offered various unlikely Microsoft apps for doing this, the least unlikely of which was Internet Explorer, which I selected. A dialogue box then appeared, offering me the choice of opening or saving the file. The box looked nothing like the box shown in the instructions and instead of being the Opening Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise.rar box, it was a View and track your downloads box, showing the name of the file and asking the question "Do you want to Open or Save this file?"
Whether I click on Save or whether I click on Open, the only thing that happens is that the same dialogue box is then re-displayed.
I seem to have hit a brick wall and don't know what to do next. All the YouTube videos which explain how to install Office 2007 on Windows 10 seem to show the exact same process that's shown in the instructions which I was emailed. But it just won't work for me.
Any idea how I could nonetheless achieve a good outcome from this uncomfortable situation?
