Writing with Symbols 2000
My mum has a copy of this and it has a floppy disk to install the application and then the content cd as well. Well her new computer (laptop) doesn't have a floppy drive and vague memories of trying suggest it won't install without being A:, has anyone attempted this and got it working?
or will i need to source a external disk drive?

I'm fairly certain you can just copy the files off the floppy disk.
Otherwise make an image of the floppy and use Virtual Floppy Drive | Download Virtual Floppy Drive software for free at SourceForge.net to create a virtual drive on the laptop.

Try the windows built-in command SUBST - assign drive letter to a directory.

I always use a USB pen drive, works fine (done over 90 installs).

As above, I just copied the files to a network share and worked.

Thanks, I did the USB last night and it worked (I'm sure I tried once before and it wouldn't work). But I did notice that I ticked the option to install the resources onto the computer but it still needs the resource cd to be inserted? (might be because it's running on seven?)

Just install it using a USB floppy drive.
