Hello there

I have just uploaded to a new MacBook Air, Parallels for Windows, Office for the Mac and Windows 7 remotely from my iMac drive. The only thing I cannot work out is how to install the same way Office for Windows 7 as I cannot control the iMac drive from Windows. Is it possible or is it the case that this cannot be done when in Windows? Also would I be able to copy Office to a USB drive then run it from Windows?

Thank you
Darren

Surely you have Office for Windows on a disc?

Yes of course but I do not want to buy an optical drive for one disc, my question is cam the Mac running in Windows 7 control the drive in the iMac or can it only be done off OS-X?

Sorry, completely jumped over you having an Air!

You can just copy the files from the CD/DVD to a USB drive and connect that once booted into windows
