Default Install office 10 in a new computer

I have MS office 10 CD and product key. I have already installed it on 2 PCs. One laptop died. Bought a new laptop, no CD drive. How do I install MS Office in the new laptop? Additionally, how do I deactivate Office 10 in the laptop that died and re-use it? Thanks.

Check your Office 2010 Licence. Unless it explicitly allows installation on more than one PC, it can only be installed on one PC at a time. You cannot deactivate an existing installation.

If the problem is the lack of a CD drive, beg steal or borrow another PC that has such a drive and copy the disc to flash media or see https://products.office.com/en-us/do...bs%3aprimaryr2

Sign in to download Office
Go to your Microsoft account portal and if you're not already signed in, select Sign in.

Sign in with the Microsoft account you associated with this version of Office.

Forgot your account details? See I forgot the account I use with Office.

On Services and subscriptions, find the Office product you want to install and select Install.

To install Office in a different language, or to install the 64-bit version, select the link Other options. Choose the language and bit version you want, and then select Install.

Install Office 2016 on a PC
Remember a one-time purchase version of Office is licensed for one install only.

Note: If you're running Windows 10 S, you may be taken to the Microsoft Store app. If that happens, follow the installation steps in Install or reinstall Office from the Microsoft Store instead.

Depending on your browser, select Run (in Edge or Internet Explorer), Setup (in Chrome), or Save File (in Firefox).

If you see the User Account Control prompt that says, Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device? select Yes.

The install begins.



Window showing progression of Office install

Your install is finished when you see the phrase, "You're all set! Office is installed now" and an animation plays to show you where to find Office applications on your computer. Select Close.

Follow the instructions in the window to find your Office apps. For example depending on your version of Windows, select Start and then scroll to find the app you want to open such as Excel or Word, or type the name of the app in the search box.



Office is installed now. Select Close.

Activate Office
Start using an Office application right away by opening any app such as Word or Excel. Can't find Office after installing?

In most cases, Office is activated once you start an application and after you agree to the License terms by selecting Accept.



Shows the "Office is Almost Ready" page where you accept the License Agreement and start the app

Office might activate automatically. However, depending on your product you might see the Microsoft Office Activation Wizard. If so, follow the prompts to activate Office.



Shows the Microsoft Office Activation Wizard.

Fyi, external CD/DVD drives are around $20-30.

Except that the OP is using Office 2010, not Office 2016.
