So Which Install Should I Use?
With all these options, you might find yourself confused about what to
install. What we’ve found is that if you do a standard install and keep the
installation files on your machine after your install is complete, you’ll be
prepared for almost anything.
If security is a concern, consider removing features that you don’t
need or that you don’t use. To remove an installed feature, just open Add Or
Remove Programs in Control Panel, choose Microsoft Office Professional
2003 (or the version of Office 2003 that you have installed), and click
Change. This will reopen the Office Setup Wizard and give you the
opportunity to customize your installation. You can always add features back
when you need them.
Deploying Office in the Enterprise
One of the best features of Office 2003 is flexibility that it affords to administrators
who need to install the product on a number of enterprise machines. Using the
tools built into the Microsoft Office 2003 Resource Kit, a network administrator
can control the way that Office 2003 is installed on users’ workstations. In this
section, we’ll look at some of the Office Resource Kit tools and demonstrate
how the Office 2003 deployment features can make the product rollout as
painless and efficient as possible.
The Office Resource Kit
The Microsoft Office 2003 Resource Kit provides tools and guidance for network
administrators who need to install Office on enterprise workstations. When
Office 2003 ships, you’ll be able to download the Office Resource Kit from the
Microsoft Web site at www.microsoft.com/office/ork . You should also be able to
buy a printed version of the kit that includes the software on CD-ROM.
