I've also tried running it in two other computers:
My girlfriends mac = the cd ran great (i did not install anything though)
My mom's pc = I get an error stating "The SETUP.EXE file is linked to missing export KERNEL32.DLL:VerifyVersionInfoW."
This error does not come up on my computer however (I am running vista while her pc still runs Windows ME)
I have used this disc to install office twice before and I know the product key only allows you 3 installs so I'm wondering if that somehow has something to do with it? Does the disk wipe out a critical component needed to install again and again once it has reached it's limit? If so am I screwed or do I just need to find someone with the Microsoft disc?
Also, I already have a microsoft student version pre-installed on my hp stating it's a 60-day free trial version. I have my microsoft office product key but when I enter it into the version installed on my computer it doesn't recognize it? Whyis the product key only valid for the cd version but not the version pre-installed on my pc?
Thanks in advance
