SUMMARY
This article describes how to perform a drag-and-drop installation of Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac.
MORE INFORMATION
The drag-and-drop installation process for Office 2001 consists of three parts:
  1. You copy files from the Office compact disc (CD) to the hard disk.
  2. Office 2001 copies shared files to the System Folder and the Office programs are configured.
  3. You can install additional components from the Value Pack.
To perform a drag-and-drop installation of Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac, follow these steps.

Part 1: Copy Files to the Hard Disk

When you perform a drag-and-drop installation, you can either perform anEasy Install or a Complete Install. When you perform an Easy Install, themost commonly used Office components are copied to the hard disk. (In versions of Office earlier than Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition, this was called a Typical installation.) An Easy Install requires approximately 160 megabytes (MB) of free disk space.

When you perform a Complete Install, all Office components (excluding theValue Pack components) are copied to the hard disk. A Complete Installrequires approximately 195 MB of free disk space.

Perform an Easy Install

To perform an Easy Install, follow these steps:

  1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Drag the Microsoft Office 2001 folder to the hard disk.
You can also perform an easy install using the following steps:
  1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Double-click the Microsoft Office 2001 icon that appears on the desktop.
  3. Double-click Microsoft Office Installer. (You may need to scroll down to the lower half of the Microsoft Office 2001 window to locate the Microsoft Office Installer icon).
  4. Click Install.

Perform a Complete Install

To perform an Complete Install, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Double-click the Microsoft Office 2001 icon that appears on the desktop.
  3. Double-click Microsoft Office Installer. (You may need to scroll down to the lower half of the Microsoft Office 2001 window to locate the Microsoft Office Installer icon).
  4. In the Microsoft Office Installer dialog box, select Custom Install from the selection box in the upper-left corner.
  5. Click Select All. (By default, all items are selected.) You can click to clear the selection boxes for any items that you do not want to install.
  6. Click Install.

Part 2: Finish the Installation

The first time that you start an Office program, a process called the FirstRun Installation process starts. The First Run Installation processprompts you to enter some information, and then copies files that arerequired by the Office programs to the System Folder.

To finish the installation, follow these steps:
  1. Open the Microsoft Office 2001 folder that is located on the hard disk, and then double-click one of the Office programs.
  2. Type your name and organization and click OK.
  3. Click OK to confirm your name and organization.
  4. Enter the 10-digit CD key that is listed on the back of the Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac CD jewel case.
  5. Click OK in the Product ID dialog box.
After you supply your name and CD key, the first run installation processcopies files to the System Folder. After these files are copied to theSystem Folder, the program that you double-clicked in step 1 starts.

As the program starts, the message "Configuring OfficeComponents" appears on the startup screen. During this process, all of theOffice components are registered, and the default Preference files arecreated. After this process is finished, the Office programs are fullyconfigured and ready to use.

Part 3 (Optional): Install the Value Pack

The Value Pack contains additional components such as assistants, clip art, templates, add-ins, and Help files that complement Office and the individual Office programs. To add all of the components of the Value Pack, you need an additional 300 MB of free disk space.

To install the value pack, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Double-click the Microsoft Office 2001 icon that appears on the desktop.
  3. Double-click the Value Pack folder, and then double-click the Value Pack Installer.
  4. Click to select the items you want to install.
  5. Click Continue to start the installation.
NOTE: The Value Pack Installer does not allow you to install on a disk other than the primary hard disk. If you installed Office 2001 to a disk other than the primary hard disk, copy the Microsoft Office 2001 folder to your primary hard disk before you run the Value Pack Installer.
