Part VIII: Appendixes > Using the Windows Installer

Using the Windows Installer

If you're installing Office XP 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. How ever, 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 Installer program was introduced with Office 2000, and even expert Office users can be baffled by its intricacies—at least until they have some experience with it.

The easiest way to install Office XP 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.
