My daughter's MacBook Pro laptop was stolen some time ago. She has only recently replaced the laptop. She still has the original Microsoft Office 2011 Student Edition DVD. However, we received conflicting advice as to whether she ought to be able to reload her original version on her new MacBook Pro, and find a way to have Microsoft permit her to re-activate it (presumably by de-activation of the version on the stolen MacBook Pro). How can this essential application be re-activated on her new MacBook Pro? To date, we have made no attempt to contact Microsoft (it seems to be very difficult to do so via either email or telephone without incurring a support charge).
