Before I start, let me say that Office for Mac 2011 is a wonderful program! I have been using it since Beta three. Although I was a user of office 2008 the lack of outlook meant I couldn’t use a Mac as my everyday computer. Well Outlook has finally come to the Mac and I for one am immensely grateful.
However during my install today – I came across this issue:
You must stop the following programs and services:
Sync Services Agent
I couldn’t figure out where this darn program was and so I couldn’t stop it.
But I finally figured it out – Open Finder, then applications, then utilities then open the Activity Monitor.
Now you can find the sync services agent in the list and quit it – viola the install will now continue!
Good Luck and Enjoy O4M 2011
