ShowI want to view the entire tour; what is the intended order of the tour contents?

The InfoPath Tour is designed to let you view only the sections that interest you. To view the entire tour, follow the order of the links on the InfoPath Tour Contents page.

ShowWhen I click Start Tour on the launch page, nothing happens.

After clicking Start Tour on the launch page, a window should appear that contains the tour movie. If you're running software on your computer that disables pop-up windows, such as a banner ad blocker, the tour window might be prevented from opening. Temporarily turn off your pop-up blocking software, and then click Start Tour on the tour launch page again to start the tour.

ShowWhen I start the InfoPath Tour, I get an error message that says my computer does not meet the system requirements.

The InfoPath Tour requires the Macromedia Flash Player version 5.0 or later.
