Client Installation Point

You can install Outlook on a local disk by running Setup from a client installation point. A client installation point is a shared directory on a file server to which users can connect to install Outlook to their local computer. Users can choose either Typical or Custom installation.

Installing Outlook to the local computer increases performance but uses more hard disk space. This type of installation is appropriate if you do not want to use network resources for shared programs.
