Question lost my microsoft word 2007 cd
hey there,
as the title says i have lost the cd. i just bought a new laptop and it only has the trial version of office on here. is there a simple way of reinstalling the full version of word 2007 on this laptop? i don't want to pay another 100! thanks in advance.

It's real simple to install the full version of word 2007 on your laptop. It starts with buying the program again. Even if you still had your disk, I don't think your license would allow installing it on multiple computers. You have to buy another license/CD.

MS charges entirely too much anyway.

Using the term "reinstalling" implies that you at one point had a full version of Word installed. Is that the case? If so, you use that same disk or installation download to reinstall it. If you never purchased a full version, you have to do so.

Good point DoubleHelix, but I think the OP already stated that he just got a new laptop and wants to put word 2007 on the new PC using a previously purchased license. Unless that previously purchased license allows for use on more than one PC, he's S.O.L.

But I just thought of something, there could be a way to transfer the license from the other computer to the laptop. Not that you could have a licensed copy on both, but if a transfer is needed, I believe it can be done. Perhaps MS would allow him to pay a little more to license his copy on both computers. If a license transfer or 2 computer license is possible, then he probably wouldn't need the CD since the program is already installed on the laptop. The laptop just needs a license for the program.
