    how to install files from disc on to mac
    i'm trying to do something really simple but im new to macs and can't figure it out.

    i have a dvd with micrsoft office 2008 for mac burned on it and i want to install it on my mac. I put it in the disc drive and the folder appears on the desktop. Have been trying to figure out how to install it for a cpl hours now. Is it so easy i can't see it?

    for windows all you do is drag the file from the disc to desktop

    These files came from where? and you burned them to disc how?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB Flash Storage, 3.3Ghz, 16GB memory, OS X.11.5.
    You need the Microsoft disc to install Office, complete with yellow activation code.

    Copying a copy does not work.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
