Restoring windows but can't find Office Suite CD?
I'm restoring Windows but can't locate my Microsoft Office CD. I have an external drive and have transferred all data. Can I transfer the Microsoft Office file (from Program Files) as well and use that to reinstall...or do I NEED the CD? Thanks!

There is a free office suite out there you can download if you are unable to locate the cd. it's not microsoft, but it uses the same files, you can open and create office files and someone with MS office can open your files...it openoffice from Sun Microsystems, the java people, you can get it for free at http://www.openoffice.org/ i use it on all of my computers, you can't beat the price!

No, you can't. You need the CD to reinstall the application.
