    Here's the situation. I am redoing my friends computer from scratch. He has a copy of Office 2007 Home & Student he purchased but he forgot to give me the DVD. Can I use a Office 2007 Ultimate DVD with his Home and Student key to install the Home and Student version?

    Basically does Office 2007 work like Vista/Win7 in that all version are on the same DVD and then the key decides which apps yo are allowed to install?

    He lives a couple hours away and I already have the office 2007 ultimate dvd. I would prefer not to try the installation and junk up the system if it won't work.

    Thanks

    No. You will need his DVD for the key to work.

    Problem solved. Microsoft offers a 60 day trial of Office 2007 Home and Student for download from their website. My buddy can email me his key and I can convert the trial to the full licensed copy.
