How to load my Microsoft Office to a new computer?

I have a legitimate package on a "Deceased" 4 year old laptop. I just
purchased a new DELL D420.

Without disk, CD, or DVD, how do I load on new computer?

You can't. Where are your disks? If it was an OEM version (preinstalled when
you got the computer), you couldn't do it with the CDs.

Re: How to load my Microsoft Office to a new computer?

You can't without the Office CD. Legitimate package of what (e.g.,
Office XP Small Business, Office 2003 Standard, etc.)? If it came
preinstalled on your old computer by the computer manufacturer, then the
software license dies with the old computer, and you'll need to purchase
a new copy of Office for your new computer. If it is a retail copy of
Office 2003 or later that you purchased and installed yourself, then see
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=326246 "How to replace lost, broken,
or missing Microsoft software or hardware" (I don't know if Microsoft
still offers replacement media for Office 2003 now that Office 2007 is
the current version, but you can ask).

They were still replacing Office XP before 2007 was released so I would
think they will replace retail versions of 2003 now that 2007 is out.
