Microsoft Office Questions and Answers - How to Add Outlook to Your Office Installation
Leane writes in with an Office question Question:I previously installed Office 2003 on my computer; all except Outlook. Now I want to install Outlook. However, when I put the disk in it doesn't load, it just opens up the directory to show me all the files on the disk. I don't know which ones need to be loaded. Help.
Answer: The easiest way to add additional Office programs or features is to go to Add/Remove Programs (Windows XP) or Programs and Features (Windows Vista and 7) in Control Panel and find Microsoft Office. From there click on Change and it will go through the setup feature and give you a option you can choose to add features. Then you can set it to install Outlook and run it from your hard drive.
If that doesn't work then the file you need to run from the Office CD is called Setup.exe. If you don't have your computer set to show file extensions then it will just show as Setup. Then you can double click it and it will give you the same choices to remove Office or add or remove Office features.
