Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have been trying to install Microsoft Office for Mac 2011, but I've been trying for few times and always failed with an error.

I posted the screenshot of the error that I am receiving.

I am running Mac OS X Server 10.5.8 with 2GHz PowerPC G5, 2.5GB DDR SDRAM.

How can I install it without getting stuck with this error message?
