Install the font into your OS and it will appear in word.

I googled for you

Except for, following the instructions what appears bears no relation to what the instructions say will appear. It always seems to me that MS go out of there way to make simple tasks involve as many stupid processes as possible. Bet on a Mac you just drag and drop.

which version of windows do you have and which version of ms office/word?

the "conditions of use" are pretty funny

Nope OSX is very complex, you double click the font file, the font book open and you click install.
