Frequently_Asked_Questions Card IconFrequently Asked QuestionsGo to Top

Q. What if I need help or technical support?
A. As this is a free offer Twin Rivers is not able to provide technical support on home computers or Office home installations. However, these installation files are provided directly from Microsoft and additional support information may be found online here:

Q. Can I install this on my classroom computers, or other District owned devices?
A. No. There are minute differences in the version of Office we use within the District and installing on a District computer will cause office to not work correctly. DO NOT install the Office at home version on your district or classroom computers.

Q. Can I move one of my Office home licenses to a new home computer? What if my computer crashes, can I re-install?
A. Yes, you will need to de-activate your old installation first using these instructions.

Q. Can I let my family members use my Office at Home programs?
A. Your Office at Home installation is tied to your Twin Rivers district login. You should only install it on computers you trust. If you choose to install on a computer where you do not want your work files accessible, you will need to sign out of all Twin Rivers services on that computer. This prevents others from inadvertently accessing your work files.

Q. Does our license for Office at Home last forever?
A. Twin Rivers is able to offer this program through our partnership with Microsoft. It is valid for the duration of our Microsoft partnership and while you remain an employee of the Twin Rivers Unified School District.

If for any reason there is a change to our program, or if you leave Twin Rivers employment, your installed copies of Microsoft Office will prompt you to purchase your own copy of Microsoft Office within 30 days.

Q. What if I already have Office, Office 365, or OneDrive installed at home, will this conflict?
A. If you have Office 2013 or an older version at home, you should be prompted to upgrade during installation. If you have a personal OneDrive or Office 365 at home, you should still be able to sign in the same way you currently do.
