Installation Steps

Use the following steps to install the SharePoint Guidance:

Note: If you are in the evaluation stage, and you only want to review the documentation you do not need to download the prerequisites or install the full package.

  • 1. Download and run the latest drop of the SharePoint Guidance
Note: The installer is just a self-extractor that copies the source files and documentation to the destination folder.
  • 2. Read and accept the SharePoint Guidance EULA. To do this select Yes from the Installer splash screen.
