Hi!

I have a problem.

For like a year or so I rolled out Office 2007 Pro Plus at the company (500+ users).

I customized the installation using OCT to only install Word, Outlook, Excel and powerpoint because that was the needs when we rolled it out.
Anyway, now we also need infopath.
I dont want to let every user go to the control panel/add or remove programs and add the infopath feture (can be admin rights problems as well).
I want to push this out to all users.

I have tried to do a new MSP file using OCT that only installs infopath. But it seems that you only can use this to a computer that dont have any previous Office 2007 installation.
I have tried to only install publisher using the MSI file for infopath but it dont work.

I have tried to capture only the infopath installation using Wise and create a MSI file. But that dosent work.

How can I push this out to all users?

Thanks in advanced!

BR
Eric

Did you use a configuration XML file, too? I think you need to, in order to specify what "feature" [sic] you're going to add.

In my current Office package Im using the config.xml file.
And it looks like this:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<!-- <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Professional Plus Setup(*).txt" /> -->

<!-- <PIDKEY Value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" /> -->

<!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" /> -->

<COMPANYNAME Value="XXXXXXXX" />

<!-- <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" /> -->

<!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->

<!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

<Setting Id="Reboot" Value="never" />

<!-- <Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" /> -->

</Configuration>

My whole commandline looks like this in our software delivery system:

setup.exe /adminfile ProPlus.WW\OfficeInstall_New_OUTL_Profile.MSP /config ProPlus.WW\config.xml

<!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->Don't quote me but I think you need to create a new XML file and specify InfoPath's Feature name - exactly as it appears in the MSI - where it says "OptionID". It would be too much to expect Microsoft to use the word "FeatureName"...

Obviously, you need to remove the 'comment' tags.

Thanks VBScab,

So is it enough to install like this:

setup.exe /config ProPlus.WW\newconfig.xml

Where the newconfig.xml file looks lik this:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<!-- <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Professional Plus Setup(*).txt" /> -->

<!-- <PIDKEY Value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" /> -->

<!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" /> -->

<COMPANYNAME Value="XXXXXXXX" />

<!-- <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" /> -->

<!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->

<!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" /> -->

<!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" /> -->

<OptionState Id="XDOCSFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />

<Setting Id="Reboot" Value="never" />

<!-- <Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" /> -->

</Configuration>

'State' should be "Local". As ever, TechNet/MSDN is your friend.

Life is too short to wake up in the mornings with regrets. So love the ones who treat you right, forget the ones who don’t. Remember that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance take it, if it changes your life, then let it. No one said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.
