    Hello @Marij
    Yes, sure, it's possible to perform it by following the steps below:
    1. Open your Windows 11 virtual machine in Parallels.
    2. Open a web browser inside the Windows 11 virtual machine and navigate to the Microsoft Office website.
    3. Sign in with your Microsoft account that has an active Microsoft 365 subscription.
    4. Once signed in, click on the "Install Office" button.
    5. Select "Other install options" from the drop-down menu and then click on "Download" under the "Office for Windows" section.
    6. Choose the desired version of Office to download and click on "Download".
    7. Once the download is complete, locate the downloaded file and double-click to begin the installation process.
    8. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation.
    Once the installation is complete, you can use the MS Office desktop version on your Windows 11 Parallels virtual machine. Note that you may need to activate the software using your Microsoft account credentials to fully use all the features.

    I found that the issue was I had another MS application (I can't remember what) which was installed, and when I installed that, it then ran the office installation

    Thank You very much for the answer. I have got just clean installation Windows 11 and there are only Microsoft 365, Microsoft Clipchamp, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Edge update, Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime, Microsoft Visual C++ 2022 Redistributable ( ARM 64). If that will help to remind you. Thanks.

    I have managed to install MS Office 2021 Pro in Paralles 19 after uninstalled AnyDesk and hwinfo. Then after reboot MacOS everything went smoothly. Thank you very much for recommendation.
