What is the best way to activate Microsoft Office when it is purchased with a new computer for business use. This is not a personal computer it is an office computer on a LAN with several other computers.
As we add/replace computers we usually buy Office with the new computer. Activating Office is always a challenge.
We have a Microsoft account. The issue is when we log in to that account, existing licenses show up but the new, purchased license does not. Typically we just stumble through the activation process until we get one that activates and move on. I'm sure there is a better more "official" way but it escapes me.
Another issue is you cannot activate a purchased license with an existing Microsoft 365 account. You can't create a Microsoft account with a Microsoft 365 email address. Catch 22
I'm sure there is a right way to do this.
Any guidance would be most appreciated.
