Installing from the Web with Click-to-Run
After a short time, the Microsoft Office Click-to-Run Bootstrapper program launches
PowerPoint, as shown in Figure 2-3.
Figure 2-3 A pop-up notification by the taskbar informs you that the download is in progress.
You need to accept the license agreement, enter your user name and initials, and specify
your update settings. Upon completing those simple tasks, you’ll find that you’re running
a fully functional version of PowerPoint (opened to an introductory slide show).
Furthermore, you’ll find shortcuts for your other new Office programs on the Start menu. Although
it might take considerable time—hours, in some cases—to finish downloading the entire
Office package, you can go ahead and run any of these programs immediately; code
needed for programs and features you use jumps to the head of the queue.
You don’t need to stay connected continuously until the download is complete. If you
need to disconnect, Click-to-Run picks up where it left off the next time you connect to the
Internet. You can check the status of the download at any time by opening the Click-to-Run
Application Manager in Control Panel. (In Windows 7 or Windows Vista, simply open
Control Panel and begin typing click-to-run in the search box; click Click-to-Run Application
Manager when it appears.)
