Howdy All -
Does anyone have any experience installing MS Office 2008 on a Mac via KBox?
I'm a newbie to the Kbox appliance so I appreciate any advice or suggestions you may have.

Thanks!
Will

Also
Microsoft directions don't take into account a managed distribution. When you run your package manually it will update the dock, but not through KACE. You will need to include a script to populate all existing users dock. Here is a snippet of code that will loop through users, you can then run the defaults command to write the plist updates.


for i in `ls -1`; do
if [ "$i" == "Shared" ]; then
continue
fi

if [ ! -d "$i" ]; then
continue
fi

if [ -d "$i" ]; then
defaults write "plist to modify"
fi
done

exit
