How do I? – Installing SharePoint Designer 2007 Step-by-Step

Written by Cornelius J. van Dyk on . Posted in How Do I...

OK, here is the step-by-step guide to installing Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007:

  1. Inserting the CD should automatically launch Setup.
  2. On the Product Key screen, enter your 25 character product key.
  3. With the correct key, a green check mark will appear behind the key and the Continue button will become enabled.
  4. Click the “Continue” button.

  5. On the EULA screen, ensure you agree with the content of the End User License Agreement.
  6. Check the “I accept the terms of this agreement” check box. Checking the box will enable the Continue button.
  7. Click the “Continue” button.

  8. Now choose the type of installation you wish to have. In most cases, you can simply click the “Install Now” button.
  9. If you wish to exercise more control over the installation, click the “Customize” button. I recommend this option because not all options are installed by default with the Install Now option.

  10. You will see some grayed options.
  11. On the Installation Options tab, select the “Run from My Computer” option from the root Microsoft Office item.
  12. You can change the installation location on the “File Location” tab.
  13. Be sure to set your information on the User Information tab to appear as you desire.
  14. Finally, click the “Install Now” button.

  15. The following screen will provide you visual feedback of the installation progress.

  16. Finally, click the “Close” button.

Born and raised in South Africa during the 70's I got my start in computers when a game on my Sinclair ZX Spectrum crashed, revealing it's BASIC source code. The ZX had a whopping 48K of memory which was considered to be a lot in the Commodore Vic20 era, but more importantly, it had BASIC built into the soft touch keyboard. Teaching myself to program, I coded my first commercial program at age 15.

After graduating high school at 17, I joined the South African Air Force, graduating the Academy and becoming a Pilot with the rank of First Lieutenant by age 20. After serving my country for six years, I made my way back into computer software.

Continuing my education, I graduated Suma Cum Laude from the Computer Training Institute before joining First National Bank where my work won the Smithsonian Award for Technological Innovation in the field of Banking and Insurance. Soon I met Will Coleman from Amdahl SA, who introduced me to a little known programming language named Huron/ObjectStar. As fate would have it, this unknown language and Y2K brought me to the USA in 1998.

I got involved with SharePoint after playing around with the Beta for SharePoint Portal Server 2003. Leaving my career at Rexnord to become a consultant in 2004, I was first awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award for SharePoint in 2005, becoming only the 9th MVP for WSS at the time. I fulfilled a life long dream by pledging allegiance to the Flag as a US citizen in 2006. I met the love of my life and became a private consultant in 2008. I was honored to receive my ninth MVP award for SharePoint Server in 2013.
