    Assuming Office 2011, perform these steps.

    From a Mac on the network:
      - Connect to the shared folder on the Windows network.
      - Open the Microsoft Office 2011 folder.
      - Double-click the Office Installer icon.

    Accepted Solution

    Copy the entire installer folder over to the target macintosh; install office; delete the installer.

    Never had much joy installing office to a mac from a network folder.
