Installation Guide to Tax Analysts' Tax Directory CD
NOTE: Each one of Tax Analysts' CDs must be installed as per these instructions, using the setup program on each respective CD, in order to be accessed. The setup program on each CD copies files to your hard disk and creates a CD-specific icon and configuration files enabling that CD to be run. As each CD runs independently of the others, not running setup for a particular CD will prevent you from using that disc.

To install any of Tax Analysts' CD products, you need to know the drive letters of your CD-ROM drive and your target hard drive. These instructions assume your CD-ROM drive is "D:" and your target hard drive is "C:". Choose your product below then follow the instructions for a rapid installation:
