Install - Definition

When referring to software, Install means to add program files and folders to your hard disk and related data to your registry so that the software runs properly. Installing contrasts with upgrading, where existing program files, folders, and registry entries are updated to a more recent version. When referring to hardware, Install means to physically connect the device to your computer, to load device drivers onto your computer, and to configure device properties and settings to work with the operating system.
