    Sorry, probably a dumb question. I never cared for Macs so now I have zero experience with them. A lot of confusing info on the subject. Now to the question: Can I create an install CD/USB for Office 16 for Mac using a windows PC? I know the download is in the correct format, I'm just not sure if I have to do anything to maintain compatibility between the different OS's

    If it's a dmg file then convert it to iso and burn it.

    The files are .PKG, I'm assuming I can drag them to the USB and then copy them to the target Mac. From there I should be able to install the packages using the Apple Installer. Is this correct? I am pretty sure I have to use a USB drive because I don't recall seeing a dvd on the Mac.

    Thanks for your help. I am assisting a struggling college student.

    *.pkg files are processed by OSX/macOS's package installer, so you just need to execute them.
