    Hello I got the Acer Aspire One netbook computer. It does not have a CD
    reader. I would like to install the following program: Microsoft Office
    Standard Edition 2003 for students and teachers.

    I already have the program installed om my first computer. Microsoft in
    Sweden said that I was allowed to use the program on 3 computers so I want it
    in the Acer also. I have bought the program properly and I have the product
    key as well as the installation cd:s. I was hoping to find some homepage to
    download the program in exchange for my product key or something.

    1. Doesn´t it work that way?
    2. Can I copy some file regarding the Office program on my first and mail it
    to the Acer? Which one?
    3. Any other way to do it?

    /Ove

    Three ways to do it. There are NO download options available.

    1. Purchase a USB external CD/DVD drive which will allow you to install
    this and any other CD/DVD program and to also burn CD/DVDs in the future.
    They aren't really expensive.
    2. Go to a computer that has a CD/DVD drive and copy the entire CD/DVD to a
    USB flash drive that will hold at least 500 MB. Then plug that drive into
    the netbook and install from there.
    3. If you have a home network, map the desktop's CD/DVD drive on the
    netbook, put the CD/DVD in the desktop computers drive and install from
    there.

    Option 1 has the greatest long term benefit.
