Appendix A. Installation and Troubleshooting
If you’ve installed a previous version of Office, you may have used Microsoft’s super-simple drag-and-drop installation—which is no more. Office 2011 now uses Apple’s Installer technology.
Using the Installer
The Installer walks you gently through the installation process as it checks to see if your computer is up to snuff, looks for other copies of Office, and asks you if you’d like to install the entire package or just individual programs.
