Installing the Client for Microsoft Networks

This is not a very difficult task, but it is not a very easy one. It should probably take you somewhere around 5 minutes, but you have to have the knowledge needed to do this. If you want to acquire that knowledge, read this text about installing the Client for Microsoft Networks.

First, you need to go to the control panel. You will do that by clicking the right mouse button on "My Network Places" and then select "Properties". You will see a window called "Network connections" and from that window you should open "Local Area Connection". This is the correct procedure if you are running Windows 2000 or some newer version, but if you are running Windows 98 or 95 you will need to go to "Network Neighborhood" and then click on "Properties". Like in the newer version go to the Control Panel and open "Network".Client for Microsoft network installation

Again, if you are running a somewhat newer version of Windows (2000 and up) you will have to go to the General Tab and check the box that is located next to the Client for Microsoft Windows, which you will is unchecked. If you see the box unchecked it means that it has not been installed before. You probably won't see any checkboxes at all if the network is active in the moment you are doing this procedure. If this happens (you are not seeing any checkboxes) you need to click on "Properties" and go to the full General Tab. Then, you will have to click on the checkbox that is next to the Client for Microsoft Windows, and after that click on "Install". If you are running a somewhat older version just click on "Add." After that, whatever Windows you are running, click on "Client", and after that click on "Add" to proceed.

After you have done that, you have to choose "Microsoft" from the list you will see. Continue with choosing "Client for Microsoft Windows". To proceed, just click on Ok. This will complete the installation and then all you have to do is to reboot your computer. When you reboot it, the Client for Microsoft Windows will be installed. It is very likely that you will have to install the TCP/IP service, as well as the File and Printer Sharing service in order to completely connect your computer to a network on a standard issue LAN network.
