    Hello again everyone.

    I hope you can help me again. I purchased my daughter's rMBP and she is pleased.

    She doesn't have Office on it yet, but of course she needs it. I have the dvd here with 5 licenses - but it doesn't have a dvd drive where i can install it directly.

    I have a classic MBP with a dvd drive if that helps any in the transfer. How can I get office on her computer?

    thanks!!

    1) Get a cheap external drive?

    2) Burn the DVD drive to an USB? Or just copy the whole DVD to her HDD?

    Office is much better and the OP was clear that his daughter needs MS office.

    I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.

    OP, you should be able to download the trail for Office:Mac and fill in your license key. Failing that, copy the installation files off CD and slap it on a USB stick.

    you could also use remote disc where by in the sharing section you can apply it and if you insert disc into your mac and goto finder on your daughters it should show up in the bottom left as long as on same network

    I wanted to give everyone an update!

    This new technology is something else I tell ya. So I used remote disk, sharing my DVD drive wirelessly to upload Windows on my daughter's new rMBP. It worked flawlessly.

    Also, for those that don't know, pages, numbers, and keynote already comes on the new systems.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. As always, much appreciated.
