What's the second MS Office Pro. 2007 disc for ?

by OzExpat / October 10, 2007 6:15 AM PDT

I'm installing MS Office Professional 2007 which is supposed to give you all the appropriate prompts as you go. It seems to have installed OK and is registered and updated . . . all from Disc 1.

What is Disc 2 for then ? There was no prompt to insert it and continue.

Why not have a look?

Insert the disk. I assume it will autorun and something like a setup program will come up. See what it offers to install and cancel then.

If it doesn't autorun, look with My Computer what's on it. There might be a setup.exe that you can run.
Even if it autoruns, you can look at the contents with My Computer after the autorun program closes.

Once you know, please tell us what you found.

It's possible you did a default install with the second CD containing pieces of Office not included in a default install. Or it might be documentation like a resource kit.

Disc no. 2 for...

Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007. It is not part of Office 2007 installation. It needs to be installed separately after the main Office suite is installed and validated.

It was the Business Contact Manager.

Thanks Kees, and Papa Echo. Yes, it was the Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007.

Stange that it is not mentioned anywhere on the disc being just called 'disc 2', and that there are no prompts to install it.

Such is life.

You're not required to install any of those ...

if you don't need them.

In fact, you aren't even required to install all parts of the suite from Disc 1. The setup lets you choose.
