JSI Tip 0877. What permissions are required for Office 97?

To install Office 97, you need to be able to read and write so many files and folders on the target computer, that normally only an Administrator can install. After installation, a user requires the following permissions:

Read and Write on these folders:

C:
C:\Temp
%SystemRoot%
%SystemRoot%\Forms
%SystemRoot%\System32
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Xlstart
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates

Read and Write on these files:

C:\Ffastun.ffa
C:\Ffastun.ffl
C:\Ffastun.ffo
C:\Ffastun.ffx
%SystemRoot%\Artgalry.cag
%SystemRoot%\%UserName%.acl
%SystemRoot%\%UserName%8.xlb
%SystemRoot%\%UserName%.fav
%SystemRoot%\Mso97.acl
%SystemRoot%\Msoprefs.232
%SystemRoot%\Outlook.fav
%SystemRoot%\Outlook.prf
%SystemRoot%\Outlook.prt
%SystemRoot%\Forms\Frmcache.dat
%SystemRoot%\System32\Ffastlog.txt
%SystemRoot%\System32\Msforms.twd

You only require read access to all other folders and files that Office 97 installs,
including those that are stored in %SystemRoot% and %SystemRoot%\System32.
