adding software to a networked computer

By cyberjan ·
I want to add powerpoint to a computer that is networked. All users have ms office but only some have PP. How do I direct the software to load locally and not on the network drive. Also, the admin ID is unknown is there a default ID that is usually choosen. This is XP Prof. with win 2000 server.

When installing MS office do a NORMAL install. It will install the most used components such as Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, etc.... when it gives you a path of where to save the files make sure it saves it in the local drive not in a shared drive. As for the Admin ID you need to be more specific. Hope i answered the first part of your question

To add software Win xp asks for the administrative ID.
A "normal" install. Is this with cd on desktop. I am looking to do it from the server.
