Hi All,

I just bought a new Macbook Air.  On migrating my old Macbook Air (Mountain Lion OSX 10.8.5) everything seemed to work fine BUT I now find my Office 2008 for Mac seems to have been converted into a Student and Home edition which won't support my Exchange accounts. I get an error saying that Exchange accounts are not supported under Home and Student edition.

It was never Student and Home edition and previously was working just fine with my exchange accounts.  

Can anyone suggest anything to correct this other than re-installing office on the new machine?

Many thanks,

Ken Williams

Sigh....solved it myself and with some help from Winsor at Mac Support.

Turns out, 2 Plists hadn't been migrated from the Office folder. The ones in question were OfficePID.plist and SetupInfo.plist.  Migrated those manually and everything is fine. Thanks for your help Experts Exchange! Not.
