Is there a way to put the full Microsoft Office program on my flash drive? I bought a new computer and I broke my Microsoft Office CD and I really don't want to buy Microsoft Office 2007. Is there ANY way to put the full Microsoft Office program on my flash drive? If so, can you tell me step by step how to do it?

PS: I saw something like this on here.

What version of Office?
If you have Office 2007 and know the serial key you may be able to download the trial version and convert it to a full version with the serial key.
Also if your two computers are networked, the old one runs XP SP2 and the new one runs Vista you can use the software at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931696 to transfer Office between them.
As for the idea of just putting it on flash drive, that is not possible as Office is a big and complex program.
