Default Trying to upgrade to Office 2003... Ive got the cd from my parents but..

when i load it into the cd tray I get this window:
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/56878/example.jpg">

similar to what i would get if i were to load any type of media cd.

Should the office not automatically begin to download?

How do I get the cd to run?


TIA

Default Theoretically it shouldn't work when you try to activate it ...

although there is an easy way around that. As for your question I don't remember if mine autoran or not.

Default Like jguthrie said

Open the folder, or go to My Computer and double click the CD drive and then find setup.exe and run it.

Chances are if you're seeing that screen that the CD is not an original and simply a copy. Either way, unless this is a student (multiple license version) it will not work (as MB said).

Default yeah it is a copy.. of an original, which was bought by me btw.

I made backup copies of all my software when i first built the computer. So when I asked for the cd, the copy was all they could find.

also, I searched for the setup.exe icon, last night, in explore and couldn't find it.

Wasnt sure if there was a such thing as an auto run command or something similar to start the install.
