I have Installed it before and there was no specific option, I just accepted default that worked OK, the other was customise. The first time I installed I did as I did with Word 97 and double clicked the MSoffice.exe but now I can't find it though a search on the CD revealed it in a cab file.
As you say, The MS Tools are higher on the Quickstart bar, included are these tools, Activate Product - MS Access snapshot Viwer - MS Clip Organiser - MS Office Application Recovery - MS Document Imaging - MS Document Scanning - MS Office Language Settings and Save my Settings Wizard. No MS Office Shortcut Bar.
I might try Appliction Recovery and if that don't work I will try another reinstall.
I decided to give the disk a clean again and reinstall for the third time, they say third time luck and it was. The Office Shortcut Bar is back on the Office Tools Menu and I have installed and all is well, Regards VA
