Downloading and installing the Word Content Control Toolkit

Video: Downloading and installing the Word Content Control Toolkit

CodePlex is a site that's sponsored by Microsoft so that developers and other folks can host controls and web services, other items that are of general user general interest, and that they can download them. If we went to the homepage of the CodePlex site, you find more information about what it is they do. While Microsoft hosts this, they don't distribute the items on this site. Many, many information technology departments use CodePlex parts and feel really good about using them and everything that you find here is free.

CodePlex is a site that's sponsored by Microsoft so that developers and other folks can host controls and web services, other items that are of general user general interest, and that they can download them. If we went to the homepage of the CodePlex site, you find more information about what it is they do. While Microsoft hosts this, they don't distribute the items on this site. Many, many information technology departments use CodePlex parts and feel really good about using them and everything that you find here is free.

So we're going to return to the Word Content Control Toolkit. This was developed for Word 2007. It also works fine with Word 2010 and the URL for this is dbe.codeplex.com. You'll find some basic documentation of the toolkit, you can see how it looks if you'd like, and then you simply click Download to download this toolkit. You have to agree to the licensing. If you've not seen anything like this before it's always a good idea to read it.

If you click I Disagree, you're done here. So we're going to agree and then we'll be asked if we want to run or save this file and I'm simply going to run it. It says it can't be verified. There are plenty of people using this. And then it's a limited license. Again, if you're not used to this, you should take a look and see what it gives you the rights to do. I'll say I Agree and click Next, and it's going to offer to install this. If I share this computer with other folks I can say put it on the Start menu that everyone uses or I can say no, actually I'm the only person here who's going to do that. And there is a button here that tells you how much space it will take up, not a whole lot. Where it's going to put it, so that you can make a choice about where you'd like this to live. And I'm going to click Next and then I'm going to install this.

Go ahead and close my browser. Say Yes to install the toolkit. It's successfully installed and I'm going to choose Close to exit now. The Word Content Control has been installed. There is a shortcut on your desktop. If you don't want it there, just go ahead and drop it in the Recycle Bin. You'll also notice in Windows that you have an orange bar that shows you that something new has been installed so that you can easily find it, and I'm going to go ahead and start the Content Control Toolkit. Now this does not run inside of Word.

It runs separate from Microsoft Word. So I don't need to have Word installed in order to use it. When it opens, it looks just like this. I'm convinced that everything here is working really well. I'm going to go ahead and close this. We'll go back and check our template and then we'll be back to use this Content Control Toolkit.
