I'm setting up a new Mac and want to start fresh with settings and apps so I'm selectively copying my user documents over and installing only the apps I need on the new Mac.
I'm running into a problem with Office 2008. I have a license for Office 2008 but Microsoft's site doesn't let me download the installer after the first 30 days passes (yes, that's the last time I buy anything from them as a digital download). So I moved the application directory over but whenever I try to use the help (like for function help in Excel), the app says that "Microsoft Help Viewer cannot be opened" and "Microsoft Help Viewer might not be properly installed on your computer. To restore it, reinstall your Microsoft application".
My question is: what files/directories need to copied to the new Mac to make sure I've got everything that Office needs to run. Answers that insist I need to use the migration assistant aren't helpful.
