Installing Microsoft Streets and Trips on a notebook with no CD / DVD drive

Netbooks are a common tool nowadays and none I'm aware of are equipped with an internal DVD drive. S&T 2006 was the last version that didn't require on line activation. Many are not aware that S&T 2010 may be legally activated on 2 computers.

USB DVD drives are priced pretty reasonable. If I had a netbook, I'd definitely have to have a DVD drive, if anything, just to install software.

Thanks, sounds like a terrific idea - this is not the first time I've run into difficulty installing software. I'm happy with both my PC and my netbook, so now it will be a matter of choosing which external drive.

Although I think a standalone USB DVD drive is a must-have for flexibility of your netbook, I am surprised you are having difficulty sharing a DVD drive from your networked computer. It works just like sharing a hard drive and would give you the tools you need while considering a separate device.

Sharing a drive usually goes easier for me if I have the same user name, password and privileges on both machines.

Hmm, I don't bother with any of that stuff. Nobody else uses my computers anyway.

Same here.

Received my Samsung external DVD drive from Newegg yesterday. Streets and Trips installed flawlessly and I can now use my Eee PC as a DVD player. All is good.

Thank you.
