\015 How to install software.\015

Answers :

How to install a software program can depend on the operating system being used and the program being installed. Because of all\015\012 the different possibilities, we have created the below steps as\015\012 guidelines for installing programs in each of the major operating systems.
\015\012 Notice: This document has been created as a basic\015\012 overview on how to install software programs, games, and utilities\015\012 on your computer. If errors are encountered during the\015\012 installation, this document will not cover those errors.
\015\012\011\011\011General Tips
\015\012\011\011\011Microsoft Windows 95, 98,\015\012 NT, ME, 2000, and XP users
\015\012\011\011\011MS-DOS Users
\015\012 \015\012General Tips\015\012 \015\012
    \015\012
  • Make sure your computer meets the requirements of the program,\015\012 game, or utility you are attempting to install.
  • \015\012
  • The manuals for the program or the readme file located\015\012 in the same directory as the install commonly contain exact\015\012 instructions on how to install a program.
  • \015\012
  • After installing or during the installation, a program may need\015\012 to install other programs, files, or utilities before it is able\015\012 to run. If this is the case, the program will commonly prompt you\015\012 to install the program or you may need to run a separate install\015\012 before the program can be fully used.
  • \015\012
  • When installing a program, utility, or game, it is always a\015\012 good idea first to close or disable any other programs that are\015\012 running.
  • \015\012
  • After installing a new program if it prompts you to reboot \015\012\011\011\011\011the computer, do it.
\015\012 \015\012Microsoft Windows 95,\015\012 98, NT, ME, 2000, and XP users\015\012 Many software programs, games, and utilities have an \015\012\011\011\011AutoPlay feature that will automatically start the setup screen for \015\012\011\011\011the software program when the CD is placed in the computer. If your \015\012\011\011\011program, game, or utility contains this feature, run the \015\012\011\011\011installation through the screen that appears after inserting the \015\012\011\011\011disc.
\015\012\011\011\011If you are installing a program, game, or utility that does not\015\012 contain this feature or you are installing a program from a floppy\015\012 diskette, follow the below steps.
\015\012\011\011\011\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. \015\012
  3. Within the My Computer window, open the drive that contains\015\012 the installation files. For example, if the files are on a\015\012 floppy diskette, open the A: drive. If they're on a CD or DVD \015\012\011\011\011\011open the D: drive or the letter of the disc drive.
  4. \015\012
  5. Within the drive that contains your files, locate either a \015\012\011\011\011\011setup\015\012 or install file. Double-clicking on this file should\015\012 start the installation for the program, game, or utility. If\015\012 you see multiple setups or install files, try to locate the Application\015\012 file or double-click each of setup or install files until you\015\012 find the file that starts the installation. Many times the\015\012 icons associated with the installation files have the same\015\012 name.
\015\012\011\011\011An alternate method of starting the installation in Microsoft\015\012 Windows
\015\012\011\011\011\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Click Start and Run.
  2. \015\012
  3. In the Run Window, type x:\\setup or x:\\install where x is the\015\012 letter of the drive you wish to start the installation from.\015\012 For example, if you are attempting to install a program from\015\012 the floppy disk drive you would type a:\\setup or\015\012 a:\\install.
\015\012\011\011\011\015\012MS-DOS Users\015\012 Users installing a program from Microsoft DOS should have a basic\015\012 understanding of the MS-DOS commands. If you are unfamiliar with any\015\012 of the commands listed below, click the link to get additional\015\012 information and examples on the commands.
\015\012\011\011\011\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Before installing a program in MS-DOS, you must switch to the\015\012 drive and/or directory that contains the installation files.\015\012 If you are installing a program from a CD or diskette, switch\015\012 to that drive. Additional information about switching drives\015\012 in Microsoft DOS can be found on document\015\012 CH000515. If the installation files are located in a\015\012 different directory, use the dir\015\012 command to list the directories and the \015\012\011\011\011\011cd\015\012 command to switch into the appropriate directory.
  2. \015\012
  3. Once you are in the directory or drive that contains the\015\012 installation files, run the executable for the setup. Many\015\012 times this can be done by typing setup or install\015\012 at the prompt to start the installation. If both of these\015\012 commands give a bad command or file name error message,\015\012 type dir *.exe or dir *.com or dir *.bat.\015\012 These commands will list any executable files; if any files\015\012 are listed, attempt to execute these files to run the\015\012 installation or setup of the program. If no files are listed\015\012 when typing all three of the above commands, it is possible that\015\012 either you are in the incorrect directory or drive letter, or\015\012 that the program.
\015\012\011\011\011Additional information about running an file from MS-DOS can also\015\012 be found on document CH000598.

  • Information about problems that can occur after an install \015\012\011\011\011\011can be found on document CH000123.
  • \015\012
  • See document CH000506 for \015\012\011\011\011\011information about how to extract a file that you've downloaded \015\012\011\011\011\011before installing a program.
