Here is an interesting question. I have a customer who wants to purchase the full program, but she has a Macbook Air which doesn't have a hard drive.
Normally, I would have her just purchase the Express version and the upgrade and do it that way, but this will be part of a workshop order and she wants to get her hostess benefits on it. If I understand it correctly, you can't order digital products this way, correct? They have to go through the on-line order process.
The wife wanted to have the Apple store load it, but says they won't do it for some reason. Her husband is wanting to know if he can just copy the info from the program CD onto a flash drive and use that to load it onto the MacBook that way. Seems to me like that would work, but I have no CLUE if it can be done that way. Has anyone else run into this problem?
You are correct. Currently, it is not possible for your customer to order MDS Express as part of a workshop order.
Your customer's husband's assumptions are also correct. They can use another computer to transfer the contents of the installation DVDs onto a flash drive or external hard drive, then use that flash drive or external hard drive to install My Digital Studio onto her MacBook Air. So long as their flash drive is big enough (the Installation DVD and Content DVD each contain several gigabytes of data), they shouldn't have any problems.
Your customer and her husband are more than welcome to call Demonstrator Support if they need assistance with installing the software.

You can also get external CD-ROM drives that plug into the USB on the MacBook Air. It might be the way to go, especially with how often Stampin' Up! puts exclusive content on CD's.
