The update for MS Office is exactly that. An update for MS Office.
It needs to be able to find Office to update it.
Caution: Unless you purchased the Student & Teacher edition of MS Office, installing the program on more than one machine is not legal.
The S & T edition allowed you to install MS Office on up to three (3) computers. It came with 3 license codes.
I have two E-Macs, but I just bought a used Mac laptop that was cleaned--no software. Can I load my MS Office Update on to it--or do I (horrors) have to find the first "Office" purchased when I bought Mac OSX?
Yes, I know I should keep all my Program CD's together, but after moving I've still got loads of unpacked boxes. It's Cold in the storage area--that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it til Spring.
