Download the latest Microsoft Office that support Mac 2011. That is the best solution I can give.

I hope this fixes your problem.

It seems that you kind of overlooked this part of the installation where you should check whether the software you are installing will run or is compatible with your present operating system or since you are using a Macintosh, the version of the Mac OS X running on your computer. The error you received is pretty simple to understand. It simply says that your operating system should be at least Mac OS X 10.5.8 to be able to install Microsoft Office for Mac 2011.

If this error appeared during your installation then the installation wizard detected an older version of Mac OS X running on your Macintosh computer. To fix this problem, you simply need to upgrade your operating system to Mac OS X 10.5.8 or maybe higher. You forgot to indicate in your post the present version of your Mac OS X platform. But anyway, that’s how you should fix it.
