Microsoft® Outlook® 2002 now. Even if you have Outlook 98 or Outlook 2000
installed, you are encouraged to upgrade to Outlook 2002.
• It is recommended that users install Outlook 2002 from this CD before
installing ActiveSync.
• Do not copy the ActiveSync files to your computer's hard disk. You must use
the Acer c500 Series Companion CD to place the files in their proper locations
and to decompress the files.
To install the Microsoft® ActiveSync® software
1 Exit any open programs, including those that run at startup, and disable any
virus-scanning software.
2 Insert the Acer c500 Series Companion CD into the computer's CD-ROM drive.
The CD's welcome page appears.
