More information

There are two major Office for Mac issues Microsoft is aware of running on Lion:

  1. Communicator for Mac crashes when you send an IM or start an audio/visual call.


    Microsoft will resolve this issue in an upcoming update to Communicator for Mac.

  2. Office for Mac 2004 will not run on Lion.


    Previous MacOS versions supported Rosetta, an Apple Mac OSX bridge technology that enabled applications such as Office for Mac 2004 to run on the latest chip architecture for Mac. Because Lion no longer supports Rosetta, applications that relied on it will no longer function under the new MacOS.

Here is a list of other known issues that Microsoft is currently investigating. These issues will likely only be encountered in specific situations or configurations:
