Installing Office 2010 Home & Student on a Windows 8 Laptop

Asked by MalcolmACarter on 12/13/2013 at 1:27 AM
I purchased a multi-computer license some time ago for Office Home & Student and have installed it on two machines.  I am trying to install it on my new laptop, which runs Windows 8 and does not have a CD drive.  I downloaded a file from Microsoft that purports to be what I need to install the programs.  However, the instructions tell me to double-click on the icon I saved to my desktop, but all I got through the download was a file that the computer cannot open. (X17-75058).  The computer keeps asking what program I want to use to open the file, so it is obvious that the file isn't an executable file.  What do I do now?
