They suggested to use

But does not work in my PC (I think they have more later version of
hyperref). However this does not work in their system as well. The
information in log is very short

I use code
And in the past this code worked fine. I care not only about hard copy, but
I like to read text from the screen and I want to make such reading easier.
However as far as I know box does not disappear on the printing. Also I
selected colors which are not gray on the printing.

What did they tell you?

There is a significant difference between colored links and the boxes
you see in the browser:

The boxes you see in the browser will disappear if you send the file
to a printer.  If you are are using hyperref's colorlinks option
you'll get the same colors when you send the file to a printer.

If the printer does not support colors they are converted to gray
levels and rasterized which looks very ugly at low resolutions and it
is probably not desired to have text typeset in gray in a book.

Use colorlinks for files which are supposed to be read online, but
avoid it if you intend to send it to a monochrome printer.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
