    Does Complete Install mean that? (Office 2000)

    My company is still using Office 2000.
    When I set up a new machine, I always do a complete install believing that I will get everything I will ever need.
    But then there are times when users need to have 'other bits' installed and the installation asks for the disks. This is a nuisance as some of the users are hundreds of kilometres away and I dont want to send copies of the disk (although the likelihood of them using the programs at home - and therefore against licencing - are less now that it is a couple of versions old).
    So how do I get everything to Run from My Computer right from the start? And what can I do about those machines that are out there now?

    You would do a Custom installation and then navigate your way through every option and select "run from my computer". As for those already installed, there's not much you can do now.

    Do the Complete install and leave the "Installation files on the hard drive. So if a function is needed, such as a converter, it will be installed as needed.
    I do this with ALL programs that allow this step. Yes, it uses some disk space, but most machines have a LOT of unused space.
