To install help content from a Windows Server 2003 operating system onto a computer running Windows XP professional

  1. On the computer running Windows XP Professional, click Start, then Help and Support.

  2. In Help and Support Center, click the Options menu.

Notes

  • The help content on a Windows Server 2003 operating system differs from Windows XP Professional Help. After you install the help content from a Windows Server 2003 operating system onto your Windows XP Professional computer, you can switch between the different help content as often as you like, but you cannot use both simultaneously. To switch between different help systems, in Help and Support Center, click the Options menu. Under Options, click Install and share Windows Help, click Switch from one operating system's Help content to another, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

  • If you are administering computers running Windows Server 2003 operating systems from a computer running Windows XP Professional, you should install the help content from the Windows Server 2003 operating system onto the computer running Windows XP Professional.

  • You can only install and share Help content on computers that are running Windows XP Professional or a product in the Windows Server 2003 family. For example, you cannot install Help content from Windows XP or a product in the Windows Server 2003 family on a computer running Windows 2000, or vice versa.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
