I need to install Office 2007 which I have bought onto my netbook which had no CD drive. I currently have a trial version running. The package instructions say I just need to open word then enter the activation code but I cannot get into a screen where the code is requested.
Do I need to wait for the trial to expire or perhaps even uninstall it before I can put the full version on?
Having read your message again I see it is a download. You can go ahead and install the FULL version - you don't have to wait for the trial version to expire. If you do encounter any problems during the install then uninstall the TRIAL version via add/remve programs. During the install you will be able to enter your ACTIVATION Code.
I installed my MS Office 2007 Student edition onto my netbook (no CD drive) by copying the CD contents (about 320 Meg) onto a USB Thumb Drive and running it from the Flash drive plugged into the netbook.
