    I downloaded office 2007 professional only with a digital lock number.
    But now I want to make a backup copy using windows XP.
    How to do it?
    Tks.

    Find the install directory or the install file. There should be a program
    named Setup.exe at the root of the directory. Burn the whole thing to DVD
    (It may fit on a CD?). Put a file on the DVD with the Product Key, so you
    don't use it. It is important to use exact terminology in these groups. I
    don't believe that "digital lock number" is a term that Microsoft uses for
    Product Key, or one that everyone would immediately recognize.

    If you don't have a CD/DVD burner just buy the CD from Microsoft.

    creating a text file and
    saving it to the cd root
    directory is helpful.

    the text file can be
    called productkey.txt

    also, writing the
    product key with a
    sharpee on the cd
    is double insurance.
