We are phasing out MS Access.

We install Office 2007 Pro Plus on almost all machines using an adminfile, which now does not install Access.

In this particular case, i now need to install Access on a machine.  HOW????!!!!!!

I have tried using the command:
setup /modify ProPlus /config access.xml
using the xml file:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">
    <Setup Id="Access.en-US" Type="Products" ProductCode="{90120000-0015-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}" />
    <Logging Type="standard" Path="\\lucio\ldlog\SD\" Template="%computername%_Access.log" />
    <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
</Configuration>

But this does not work.

Please can anyone assist with this, it has become a real pain in the @rse and the Technet pages are extremely unhelpful.

Thanks for any advice.

Could you be more specific on "what" is not working?
Does it install (partly) or do you get an error code?
Have you looked into the install log?

And actually I found TechNet quite helpful. This document explains a lot and contains more references to other MS articles on the subjects: http://office.microsoft.com/download/afile.aspx?AssetID=AM101638421033

Try adding the following to your config file,

[font="courier new"]<OptionState Id="ACCESSFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />

AT LAST!!!

Thanks for the above suggestions but i have managed to fix this myself - i just changed the syntax of the problem i was Googling

Basically, the msp file that we use for the full installing of office 2007, as in the command line:  setup.exe /adminfile "Office 2007 SP2 Full.msp"

I just used the same admin file as a patch to the machine that had Office 2007 without Access, as in the command line:

msiexec /p "Office 2007 FULL.msp" /qn

So simple!!!

So why absolutely NO documentation from M$????
