Hi admin, I'm new too like dsam1211, I've downloaded your software but haven't opened it yet as I'm new to computer software installation, can you please mail me the step by step guide to install the office. It would be a great help for me. Thanks Sandy.

I am facing an issue in installation as I get the error 'cannot verify signature'. I tried the usual troubleshooting but nothing worked.

I have a 64-bit system and running windows 10.

Can someone assist me with this?

installed on my old laptop with no problem.

But with my newer laptop, it keeps failing. Whenever I run the activator as administrator, few sec after that it fails and the system deleted the file by itself automatically. I guess windows update has prevented this.

someanon said:
After 4 or 5 unsuccessful tries this is how I managed to do it:
System: Win 10 Home 64; No AV, AntiMalware etc. except Windows Defender

1 - Uninstall the previous, unsuccessful install. If you have other office related stuff in the list you see in the "uninstall or change a program" window uninstall them too.
2 - Restart your PC.
3 - Stay online but deactivate "real-time protection" from windows defender settings. (If you have other AV etc. deactivate them too)
4 - Create 3 new folders with random names.
Cut&paste "KMSautonet...exe" file into one of them and rename it, make sure its name doesn't resemble a crack-file's name.
Cut&paste all the read.me files into the second folder you've created.
Cut&paste all the other files into the third folder.
Delete the original folder.
5 - There are 3 different setup.exe files in the folder. Run setup64.exe (AS ADMINISTRATOR) if your system is 64bit .
6 - After the installation ends close the related window.
7 - Open Word by double-clicking on WINWORD.EXE which you can find here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16
8 - Just close or accept whatever window opens on Word's splash screen. Don't try to open a document.
9 - Close Word.
10 - Run the KMS activator file AS ADMINISTRATOR whose name you changed .
11 - If a warning pops up that says something like "Convert Office Retail -> VL" choose OK. Choose the related option in the following window that opens automatically; wait couple of seconds.
12 - Now you must see the KMS AutoNET2015 v1.3.8 main window. Click on "Activate Office".
13 - Wait like a minute or so until you see the auto-scrolling log stops. It finishes by a line telling the process was successful.
14 - Now you have to able to open Word without problems.

Sorry for asking a repetitive question but: The programs run nicely, though the activation is missing. I ran also the other .exe, it has shown first "activated" but then tells me in 1 week everything will expire.. Help appreciated.
