Microsoft fixes licensing bug in Office for Mac 2011

Minor update solves issue with false licensing alert

Microsoft on Monday released a further update specifically for Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 that resolves a false licensing alarm bug. Specifically, Office 2011 applications would report a problem with licensing even though the applications would continue to run unaffected by the warning. The new problem was apparently introduced in the previous fix, which also addressed various bugs with Exchange calendar servers, hyperlinks with hastags and other issues.

The new update brings Office for Mac 2011 to version 14.3.1. The previous bugfix update, issued just two weeks ago for the suite, also added compatibility with the company's online version, called Microsoft Office 365.

The service is a subscription-based, browser-oriented version of Microsoft Office that offers users updated, online software that works in conjunction with local copies (for offline use), integrating cloud storage and syncing to various platforms and devices for around $100 per year for the Home Premium version (major or minor upgrades are included in the price). Office for Mac 2011 is still compatible with OS X 10.5.8, but an Office 365 subscription requires 10.6 or later.
