Part XI: Appendixes > Using the Windows Installer

Using the Windows Installer

If you're installing Office 2000 on an individual computer at home or in a small office, you don't need any documentation, because the Setup process is almost fully automated. However, if you want to control what actually happens during Setup, or if you're responsible for installing Office on multiple computers, you'll need the information in this appendix. The Office 2000 Installer program is new, and even expert Office users are likely to be baffled by its intricacies—at least at first.

The easiest way to install Office 2000 on an individual PC is to insert the first disc in the Office package into the system's CD-ROM drive. If AutoPlay is enabled on the PC in question, Office launches its Setup program automatically and displays the dialog box shown in Figure A.1. If you're upgrading over an existing version of Office, the top button will read Upgrade Now; if Setup does not find an existing version of Office, the button will read Install Now.
