    I just did a restoree and reformat of macbook. I have installed all the programs that were on before but do not have teh Mac Office disk and product key to reinstall it. I saved the officepid.plist file from system before refromat. I thought I could just install the trial version and then replace this file in the system. It is not working though. Anyone know how to get it to recognize this?

    Sorry, it's not possible to do it that way. You'll need your original disks and original product key. If you registered Office when you bought it, you might be able to call technical support for assistance in recovering your key.
