It's confusing, but what is on the server there is actually "Microsoft Office for Mac" and will only run on a computer running the Mac OS X operating system. In fact, if you were looking at that on a Mac, you would not see all those files - you'd just see the "Office Installer.mpkg" - You can think of an installer package on a Mac like an ".exe" file on a PC. You're not meant to see all that stuff you're seeing there, those packages are for the installer process.

In any case, from the screenshot you showed, you're using a Windows PC. Nothing in that directory under "Mac Software" will likely work on your PC. If you want Office, you need to look for "Microsoft Office for Windows." Or check out http://openoffice.org for a free version of Office.

Good luck.

sorry it should be .mpkg extension and you might need to copy the entire folder to your local machine to install it
