requirements of the
program, game, or
utility you are
attempting to install.

the install commonly
contain exact
instructions on how to
install a program.
After installing or
during the installation,
a program may need
to install other
programs, files, or
utilities before it is able

Microsoft Windows
Many software programs,
games, and utilities have
an AutoPlay feature that
will automatically start the
setup screen for the
software program when
the CD is placed in the
computer. If your
program, game, or utility
contains this feature, run
the installation through the
screen that appears after
inserting the disc.
If you are installing a
program, game, or utility
that does not contain this
feature or you are
installing a program from
a floppy diskette, follow
the below steps.

2. Within the My
Computer window,
open the drive that
contains the
installation files. For

are on a floppy
diskette, open the
A: drive. If they're
on a CD or DVD
open the D: drive
or the letter of the
disc drive.
3. Within the drive
that contains your
files, locate either a
setup or install
file. Double-clicking
on this file should
start the installation
for the program,
game, or utility. If
you see multiple
setups or install

MS-DOS users
Users installing a program
from Microsoft DOS
should have a basic
understanding of the MS-

program in MS-
DOS, you must
switch to the drive
or directory that
contains the
installation files. If
you are installing a

switch to that
drive. If the
installation files are
located in a
different directory,
use the dir
command to list

directory or drive
that contains the
installation files, run
the executable for

both of these
commands give a
bad command or
file name error
message, type dir
