The amount of disk space required to install Microsoft Office XP is based on several factors, including the following:
  • The version of Microsoft Windows that your computer is using
  • Whether the System Files Update needs to be installed
  • The versions of Windows components installed, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Data Access Components
  • Whether an earlier version of Office is installed on your computer
  • The type of file system being used (for example, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS)
  • The components that you are installing
The approximate amount of disk space that is needed to install Office XP is shown in the following table.
