Hi people,

I have Microsoft Words and other relevant applications/programs installed on my laptop (Acer model). Unfortunately, I haven't got their installation cds as these programs were installed to my laptop by an old friend of mine who had the cds. Is there any way I can transfer or copy these applications/programs to my home pc without the requirement of their installation cds?

No it won't work. Applications like these scatter files all over your hard drive and make numerous entries in the registry.
