WOW it seems like it should be simple

I have just started deploying sofware via MIs. My tests for Office 2010 worked.

I have Office 3002 users who access office 2007/2010 docx/xlsx with an old version of "compatability pack for Office 2007" This software was all installed manually I have no *.msi

I have downloaded the "compatability pack for Office 2007 service pack 3" I have the compatibilitypacksp3-kb2526297-fullfile-en-us.exe

From that, I have also extracted the *.msp = O12Convsp3-en-us.msp

It looks to me like i can't run msiexe /p without the appropriate *.msi. I tried without an *.msi and it didn't work.

Compatability pack for Office 2007 service packs are software and I thought I'd download the software installers and apply them via patching. No luck the download errored (sp?) out.

I believe in my heart I can use my manually downloaded *.exe or *.msp. Please tell me how. (Oh dear sounds like I am going to cry.... I gotta get a life)


p.s. Created a ticked at kace support with this same message.

You may need to include the Productcode to patch the installed version. Try:

msiexec /n {90120000-0020-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE} /p "<FullPathtoMSP>\O12Convsp3-en-us.msp"

Even if "compatibility package for office 2007" msi is installed manually, you should be able to find the Product code on the system you are checking to deploy[8|]
Under uninstall strings .. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\%PCODE%"

This SP3 patch could only be applied if the compatibility package is installed at first.
