Microsoft office was reinstalled onto my Windows 8.1 computer and will not let me get into my Word documents. I get the error message “Microsoft office cannot verify license for this product”. HELP!

    Make sure Word is not starting in compatibility mode.

    Try opening another Office product and check if it's fully activated (File > Help).
