Another application that was hosted for free download by Digital River is Microsoft Office 2008 for Macintosh. Just as everything else, the Office 2008 downloads have been pulled also. If you need the installation files, chances are slim, but a few options remain.
Important Note February 2015
Microsoft has taken down all previous and current download servers (msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net, msft.digitalrivercontent.net, digitalrivercontent.net and drcdn.blob.core.windows.net)! At this point it is unlikely that the downloads will ever come back.
Microsoft might send out a replacement for broken office installation CDs. A small handling fee applies to this service.
Purchase an Office 2008 Activation Key
Alternatively, you can purchase a new copy of Office 2008. As this is quite an old version now, the software is very affordable. Of course, you may use any existing product key to activate Office 2008 on a second device. I already tried to find good deals on Amazon for all three editions. Please also check the deals on the Office 2011 Direct Download Links page.
