I zipped my MS office onto a CD and unzipped it into the new computer I got for Christmas. When I try to open Excel in the new computer, for example, I get a message

The operating system is not presently configured to run this appl.

I checked the op. sys. on both computers and they're the same: XP version 5.1 w/ SP 2

Am I hitting a copy protection thing or something?

If you just copied it from the Program Files folder, it won't work.

You will need to install it from the CD onto your new computer in order for Windows to create the necessary registry entries, file associations etc.
