Getting Microsoft office onto PC

Hello all
As you may have read my last thread you will appriciate that we were having major problems with a dell PC. Anyhow a man from Dell turned up yesterday and installed a new hard drive, and other bits, and the PC is now up and running....however....there is no Microsoft office installed.

The PC is one of four that runs through a server. We did have a trial version of office (On the other three PC's), and have paid to have these upgraded to full version (After trial period ended and most of 'features'were not working. To be fair I think we may have cheated slightly, as we got 1 product key for full version and have just used this for the other PC's, and this seems to have worked OK, however the pc with the new hard drive has nothing on it.

How can we get round this problem. We obviuosly have to use Microsoft office as this is the proggramme we are using accross the network

You would need to buy a licence for each PC to run Office.

You could install the software through Group Policy on the Server, or on the individual PC. Doing it through Group Policy means you only have to install the software once, then it would propagate to the client machines.
