So yeah, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I bought a new Sony Vaio netbook, and I want to install MS Office on it. I don't want to sound like a total cheapskate, but I don't exactly want to buy MS Office 2010. My grandmother bought a computer a couple of years ago, and has kept the installation disc and serial number for MS Office 2007. Only problem is that I don't have a CD drive.
When I click MS Office on my netbook, it says to click if I've already bought MS Office 2010 - presumably to put in a serial code. Could I just follow that link and put in my serial code for the 2007 Office? Or would the only way of installing it be to buy an external CD drive?
A MS Office 2007 serial code will not work for MS Office 2010.
If you have a valid 2007 serial code you can download MS Office from the Microsoft website here.
Why not just use Office 2007?
Bill Gates earns $250 a second. We fund this by installing Microsoft Office. The world is an imperfect place.
If Office came with the computer, it'll likely be an OEM licence, therefore illegal to use on your PC.

Give openoffice a go, it's free an good enough for most work.
