Default Re: online activation?

You can't share discs like that, it's illegal. The software's only allowed on one pc per purchase, unless it's a bulk license thing like schools do (which I doubt is the case). If it is going to activate online, then you're out of luck. But if it's just registration you can skip it and be fine.
