    I am selling my laptop to a friend. I did a system restore to get Win XP to its original state. Now I want to reinstall Office Pro 2003. I can't find my install CD but have my Product ID number (was smart enough to record that before I scrubbed it). I've scoured the MS site to see where I can download Office Pro 2003 by entering my Prod ID but can't find anything. Any recommendations?

    Thank you!! I love this site.

    MS do not provide any "download" ability for getting a copy of Office, never have.

    The "Product ID" and the "CD Key" are two different things though. You cannot do a reinstall using the "Product ID", you need the 24 character CD Key (5 groups of 4 characters) to do that.
