Other methods to get replacement installation media

If you know somebody else owning the same version of Office who still has the CD/DVD, you can ask for a copy of it. For some versions it is required to also have the same suite and the same type of license (OEM or Retail).

If you are not able to download the (relatively) large installation file of Office, you can also ask somebody else to download it for you and burn it to a CD/DVD or copy it to an external hard disk or USB-drive for you.

Be careful with buying or downloading the installation media from any other source on-line. These versions could be pirated and could do serious harm to your computer when used. Also, in several countries even downloading from an illegal source is considered an illegal act as well, even when you intend to use it with your own valid license.
