Hi!

I´ve just bought a new laptop (ASUS U32U) for my daughter... It does not have a CD/DVD DRIVE.

I Have a CD with OFFICE 2007, and I want to install it in the new laptop. I´ve created an ISO image (of the OFFICE2007 disk) with ULTRA_ISO in a different pc. I have also installed ULTRA-ISO in the new ASUS, and it can read the image perfectly, but when I click on "setup.exe" the following message appears:

"Setup cannnot find the required setup controller file. Either there was a network error, an error reading from the CD, DVD or other installation media, or a problem with the package you downloaded."

.....................................................................................

Hola,

Le he comprado un netbook (ASUS U32U) nuevo a mi hija... Viene sin unidad de CD/DVD.

Tengo un disco de OFFICE2007 que le quiero instalar, y he creado una imagen ISO del mismo con ULTRA-ISO (versión de evaluación) en otro pc.

También he instalado ULTRA_ISO en el ASUS, y lee correctamente la imagen creada, pero al pulsar sobre setup.exe salta el siguiente mensaje:

"Setup cannnot find the required setup controller file. Either there was a network error, an error reading from the CD, DVD or other installation media, or a problem with the package you downloaded."


"Setup cannnot find the required setup cpntroller file. Either there was a network error, an error reading from the CD, DVD or other installation media, or a problem with the package you downloaded."

Can you help me instal OFFICE in the new ASUS?

Thanks a lot.


Me podéis echar una mano para instalar OFFICE en e ASUS???

Gracias de antemano!!!

Have you considered getting an external optical drive such as this:
Amazon.com: ASUS External Slim Black 8X DVD-RW Stylish Diamond Cut Design Optical Drive SDRW-08D2S-U/B/G/ACI/AS: Computers & Accessories

I would think it would be very useful.

Thanks to both of you.

It's been much easier than that: I have simply copied the contents of the OFFICE CD in a pendrive, clicked on SETUP.EXE... and it has worked!!!

I still can't believe it.
