IMPORTANT: Before installing CommonLook® Office, please ensure that the workstation meets the following minimum requirements:
- Windows 10, 8, 7, or Vista,
- MS Word 2010 or higher,
- MS PowerPoint 2010 or higher (not required if working exclusively in Word),
- Windows Internet Explorer version 8.0 or higher.
Please read and follow the download and installation instructions carefully!
CommonLook Office comes in 32 bit and 64 bit variants. Make sure to use the correct installer for your version of Microsoft Office.
Choose the appropriate button below to begin the download.
If preferred, contact Sales (firstname.lastname@example.org) to obtain the software on CD.
Important: The installation MUST be performed while logged in to Windows as a user with Administrative Privileges on the local machine.
Locate and run the self-extracting zip file CLOfficeGA2_0_8x86.exe or CLOfficeGA2_0_8x64.exe. The WinZip Self-Extractor dialog box pictured below will open. (Please note the screenshot below of the self-extractor shows the version for Office 32 bit. Only the bit number will be different for people using Office 64 bit.)
To continue with the installation, please select “Yes.”
After selecting “Yes” in the “Self-Extractor” dialog, the files needed for CommonLook Office will be extracted.
Choose “Install” or “Yes” as needed if asked to install additional components and/or make changes to your machine.
Once the extraction process is completed, the CommonLook Office Setup will start.
Select “Next” when the CommonLook Office “Welcome” screen opens.
After the “Welcome” screen, the next step is to accept the software licensing terms. Please read and agree with the “License Agreement,” choose the “I agree” radio button, and select “Next.”
After the “License Agreement,” the “Register CommonLook Office GlobalAccess” screen will open. Select the button for “Register Now.”
On the “Registration” screen, select the “Single User” radio button in the Licensing Model options. (Remember, as stated above, if you need to use the Concurrent Licensing model, you’ll need to contact our support team for the proper installation information.)
Enter the “Product Key” as supplied by CommonLook in your purchase email. Note: If this is an upgrade from a previous version then the “Product Key” information will already be entered for you.
Select whether to get your “Activation Key” by the Internet (the recommended choice) or by email.
Note: When choosing to get your Activation key by email, there will be a value entered in the “Information” field below the “Activation by Email” radio button. Copy that “Information” value and email it to email@example.com. Support will promptly reply with an “Activation Code.” Copy and paste your “Activation Code” into that field on this registration screen.
After choosing your activation method, select the “Register” button.
Then choose “Next.”
When the “Setup Wizard” screen opens, choose “Next.”
The “Select Installation Folder” screen allows you to specify the target folder for the software installation. It’s recommended that you use the default.
To install CommonLook Office for all users on the current machine keep the “Everyone” radio-button selected. This is particularly important if you are logged on using an account other than the regular machine user’s account (for example, an administrator installing for a desktop user).
Select the “Next” button.
At this stage, all information needed to install CommonLook Office has been collected. The installer will show the “Confirm Installation” screen. Choose “Next” to start the actual file installation.
Once the installation is completed, the “Installation Complete” screen will be displayed.
Select the “Close” button.
