Microsoft Office 2004 is an office suite including the text processor Word, the spreadsheet application Excel, the presentation software PowerPoint and the mail client Entourage. It is often also referred to as Office:mac 2004.

There are three different editions available: 1) the Standard Edition was available for $399 USD (upgrade: $239 USD), 2) the Professional Edition additionally included Virtual PC 7 with Windows XP Professional for a price of $499 USD (upgrade: $329 USD), 3) the Student and Teacher Edition for $149 USD (no upgrade and not upgradable).

Office:mac 2004 is the latest version to support VBA on PowerPC. Office:mac 2008 is still PowerPC-compatible, but lacks VBA support.

Microsoft Office for Mac 2004 was released 11 May 2004. As of 10 January 2012 Office:mac 2004 is no longer supported by Microsoft. Office:mac 2004 was the last PowerPC-only office suite from Microsoft: it requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 "Jaguar" or later and does run on Intel Macs through Rosetta, which was included in Mac OS X 10.4/Intel through Mac OS X 10.6.

Student and Teacher Edition

Top DL: This edition is like the Standard Edition, but is not available as an upgrade. It also cannot be upgraded to a newer version of Office:mac. It contains three product keys instead of just one in the Standard Edition.

2nd DL: This DL contains the updaters (11.6.0 to 11.6.6). These apply to: Office 2004 Standard Edition, Office 2004 Student and Teacher Edition, Office 2004 Professional Edition, Word 2004, Excel 2004, PowerPoint 2004, Entourage 2004. Earlier updates are not required.

3rd DL: Office:mac 2004 cannot open or save OpenXML format files (like .docx, .pptx and such). Included here is a free converter from September 13, 2011 that converts these files on PowerPC-based Macs so that Office:mac v.X and 2004 can be used to edit the contents of such files.

4th DL: The Apple Internal Edition of Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac. It doesn't require serial number and it's rumored to be faster than the commercial version.

When available, Office:mac 2004 Standard Edition and Professional Edition can also be added to this page.


For all versions, mount the disk image and simply drag and drop the Microsoft Office 2004 folder into your Application folder.
Alternatively the included installer can be used (.pkg or .mpkg).

Trial Edition

Office:mac 2004 Test Drive is still downloadable from an Australian Microsoft site. It is a 30 day trial that includes almost all the features found in Office 2004, but with printing disabled plus other limitations. Available languages are English (US), German, French, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish. The Test Drive version is not available in the Dutch language.

The 30 day Test Drive may not actually work, either, as there was an updated fix available. See article TA23775, the link for the fix it refers to is no longer valid, therefore the trial version may or may not work.

No software update, just the plain Office 2004 Academics edition.

Ok thanks a lot for that, and do you have the software updates that came with it in French ? I asked the official Microsoft subreddit and they said that they don’t have them anymore.

I got it... a lot of kilometers away. I'll be able to rip the disc in, let's say, 1 or 2 months if no one can rip it until then.

Page here says 10.2 Jaguar is the minimum OS requirement, but the German page counterpart states 10.1 as the minimum. Wonder which one of the two is correct.

Also would be cool to see the "regular" Standard Edition and the Professional Edition uploaded here for the sake of completion, someday, if someone has/finds it.

The purchase link points to an Amazon page

Moved it (way) down into the page description. Also; even tho' the Amazon offer is currently unavailable, it may become active one day, if a seller comes along with a copy for sale...
