Offer On Demand Web Demos For Product Installations

Microsoft seems to sometimes work from a problem up approach in terms of how 
it posts information.  I understand the reasoning behind this, but sometimes 
just having the information on how a successful installation should go is 
needed.  I think it would be very beneficial if you offered "On Demand" Web 
Demonstrations for installing products such as MS CRM, Great Plains and other 
products.  

I think you would reduce a lot of problems and simple questions if you had 
an "On Demand" demonstration of how an installation should go.  Then if an 
individual runs into an issue a user could click on some links of potential 
issues.  This would direct an individual to a list of particular problems 
that they can research.  This may sound like a simplistic approach, but 
sometimes less is more and getting just the basics demonstrated can go a long 
way.  For example, demonstrate an installation of CRM server, and also do a 
demonstration of CRM Client for Outlook.  Thank you.

Publisher 2 won't install
Version 2 will not install on my laptop. Get "Bootstrp caused an error in KRNL386.exe". Any help out there. I love the old program and want to use it on my laptop. Pauline You should love the old program. Publisher 2.0 was one of the great versions. Publisher 97 is the next great practical functional version with Merge added.

Production/Inventory
I have a workbook that tracks inventory, but I would like to update it with a formula to help me track the materials used to create my inventory. Example: Let's say a product is packed at 100 pcs per box. Each day I pack different quantities. How do I get this formula to track how many boxes are used for the quantities packed? The box should not be counted as a full box until it is a full 100 pcs. Day 1 - 500 pcs Day 2 - 325 pcs Day 3 - 619 pcs I want to make sure I don't run out of boxes, so I would like to have a buffer of say 500 boxes and have it flagged a...

Product cost
Asper my undrstanding, MS CRM lets you define one or more price lists which contain the price for products. What I do not understand is, if we maintain product price through price list, what is the use of the fields "List Price", "Standard Cost" and "Current Cost". What purpose do these serve? I tried removing these fields from the product page but the customization screen would not let me do so as these are event dependent fields (which event?)! Any clarification on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks The cost fields and list price fields can be used...

Change Company Name for Office Products
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) I transferred schools and would like to change the "company name" of my license information.

However, every time I open any Office application, it still says Licensed to: My Name and My Old School. How can I change this to say my new school or no school at all? Thank you. ...

Data migration from MSDN Subscriber License to Production License

Sales for Outlook 1.2 Install

When I get to the screen asking for the URL of the CRM server install, it tells me that it cannot find the CRM instance at that address and fails out.

OWA re-install
How do you re-install OWA for Exchange 2003? I lost my IIS and did a re-install. Website is back up but no OWA. Exchange 2003 is up and running but OWA is not. How do I just re-install OWA? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Just reinstall Exchange. It reinstalls the binaries only (won't touch the databases) and will reinstall the IIS virtual directories that may be currently missing. Following your reinstall, you would need to re-apply any hotfixes and service packs. -- Ben Winzenz Exchange MVP "HLobell" <HLobell@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in me...
