Installing individual apps from clone
I'm so sorry this will have to be long!
My basic questions are:
Can I install Microsoft Outlook from my bootable clone to my MacBook Pro?
Can I use a Smart Update with a new MBP that is virtually identical to my previous MBP?
The regrettably long background info:
I purchased a new MacBook Pro about two weeks ago. At the time, I bought and installed Office for Mac 2011 Home & Student. I later found that I could not use my old e-mail application with my new computer and purchased the MS Outlook e-mail program online. I have a product key and a Product ID number.
Yesterday, my MacBook Pro failed, and the Apple Retail Store exchanged it for a new one. They migrated all my data from the first MBP to the second MBP. When I tried to launch Outlook for the first time on my newest MBP, I got an activation message requesting my product key. I inadvertently typed my Office for Mac key into the box rather than my Outlook key. I got a message that the key was invalid. I closed the activation box.
I discovered my mistake and tried to open Outlook again. This time, I got a message saying, To use this feature, you need to upgrade your version of Office for Mac. Well, I already did that once.
I did make a SuperDuper bootable clone of my first MacBook Pro before it was exchanged for my second MacBook Pro. So presumably, I have a copy of the Outlook program on the clone. So, again, my questions:
Can I install the Outlook program from my clone to my MBP? If so, how?
And can I run Smart Update on my newest MBP or will I have to start from scratch, as if I were creating my first bootable clone?
My deep apologies for my complex problem. And THANK YOU!
