I want to install a software (Wordfast) on my laptop with op.sys Windows XP.

I have two options, one which is manual and which I can\'t make out at all, and the other automatic, but I must enable macros first.

How do I do this?

Please bear in mind that I struggle when it comes to computers, so keep it simple!

Thanks in advance!

In Word:

Open Tools-macro-sequrity-low

Here you set the \"low\" setting, that will enable macros to be run. When you click on the \"wordfast.dot\" I think you should press shift+F2 to install it.

Otherwise: Go to \"My computer\" Choose tools-folder options, and then \"view\". Enable \"show hidden files..\". When you have done this it should be possible to find the startup folder for word here using a path like this one: C:\\Documents and Settings\\Your Name\\Application Data\\Microsoft\\Word\\STARTUP

Good luck

as much as I know...it may help Feb 4, 2003

in XP if you got o Control Panel and then to \"add or remove programs\", then \"add new programs\", from there you can place the CD

good luck

(if the program you are adding needs a Windows based program like excel, publisher etc, your version of XP may not have this program. Windows XP comes in professional and small business.
