Why does Microsoft give away invalid software? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Over a year ago, Microsoft offered me, as a computer professional, a free set of Office If I would go through several on line programs.  I followed their instructions, they verified that I had met the requirements, and sent me instructions to download the application.  Now they are telling me that program they gave me is invalid.  What kind of quality does Microsoft produce?
