To add or remove features of Project, do the following:

1 Place your Project CD-ROM in your computer's CD-ROM drive. The Maintenance Mode Options window appears. If this window does not automatically appear, browse to your Project CD-ROM and run setup.exe.

2 Select Add Or Remove Features.

3 Click the Next button.

The Advanced Customization window appears.

4 To add a feature, click the arrow next to the feature you want to add, and change Not Available to either Run From My Computer or Installed On First Use.

Installed On First Use makes the feature available, and you can run this feature from Project at a later date. You might be required to insert the Project CD-ROM or access the network drive from which you originally installed Project to use the added feature. Because of this, you should select the Installed On First Use option only if you will have access to the Project CD-ROM or network location at the time you run this feature. Run From My Computer installs the feature on your computer's hard disk. You will not be asked to provide the Project CD-ROM when you first run this feature.

5 To remove a feature, click the arrow next to the feature you want to remove and change the Run From My Computer or Installed On First Use setting to Not Available. Click the features you want to add or remove and click the Update button.

Project Setup will perform the actions you indicated. Setting a feature to Not Available will remove the feature entirely. You cannot use this feature until you add it using the steps described earlier.

6 When finished adding or removing features, click the Update button.
