    If I drag all of Office's applications and folders onto an external HD and then plug it into another Mac without Office, will the program run?

    More than likely, NO.

    I talked with a friend a while back that tried it, and it did not work. But you should try.

    No. Office needs more then just the applications. There are a lot of things in the user/Library folder.

    Macbook Pro forums, not the Microsoft Office for Mac forums.

    In order for ANY application to run, it has to be installed on the OS partition of a hard drive. Dragging and dropping Microsoft Office (or any application) from the OS drive to an external drive will prevent the application from opening.

    Just install Office on the new mac using the installation disk or the ".dmg" file. Then you can use the external drive to copy all the documents to the other computer.
