I am trying to find the best process to upgrade existing Windows XP Professional & Windows 7 users using Office 2007 to Office 2010.  

Answer Summary:
Open a command prompt with the Office CD in...type setup /admin and it should open up the MSP program. Go through all of the steps listed, and certain programs want certain versions and it is here you can select them. Next, copy the entire contents of the install CD to your desktop, zip it up along with the MSP file you just created and upload it to Kace as you would any other software.

We just ran the Office 2010 installer, by default it will uninstall 2007.  However that may be slower than running the 2007 uninstall separately first and then running the 2010 install.

One thing to be careful with though, Office 2010 has a 64 bit version and it does not like to co-exist with other 32 bit Office products.  So, you either have to upgrade to 2010 64 bit versions of everything or just use the 32 bit version of Office on your 64 bit Windows machines.

  • If you uninstall Office 2007 manually, isn't there a reboot required before you can safely install 2010? I could be wrong but that was my recollection. K2000 Managed Install handles our transitions from 2007 to 2010 pretty well. Going from 32bit 2010 to 64bit 2010, not so much -- that required a manual uninstall and at least one reboot. Ditto for going from Office 2010 Standard to Pro. Unless Standard was manually uninstalled, remnants were left behind that caused it to show in our inventory.

One more thing to take care is what component you want to keep of the older version and which you want to remove. You have that option in case you want to keep Access 2003 or any other..

Are you wanting to do a command line install of Office 2010?  Open a command prompt with the Office CD in...type setup /admin and it should open up the MSP program.  Go through all of the steps listed and as piyushnasa mentioned, certain programs want certain versions and it is here you can select them.


Next, copy the entire contents of the install CD to your desktop, zip it up along with the MSP file you just created and upload it to Kace as you would any other software.

The link below is for Office 2007, however, it also works with 2010.
