I've paid for Microsoft Home & Student Version of Word/Excel 2010 and I can't use them unless I'm tethered to the internet; how can enable use of these programs when I'm not connected? Is there a full download of the product? Or some macro to force the download of all the features while I am connected?
Most of the time they work, but on occasion it will try and download new "features" when I do simple formatting changes, such as, applying a style. Rather than determining that the I don't have an internet connection, it craps out and locks up the program.
