I am having a tough time extracting the msi from MS document explorer 2008. If anyone has had success making this deployable with gpo could you pass along some instructions. The ms documents are not completely helpful, i may just be missing something.

I didn't even know that you could install dexplorer separate, isn't this part of VS2008?

It is and can be installed separately for silent and deployable installs. Im a little stuck trying to get some of the prereqs deployable through group policy.

Don't think this comes as an MSI.
Enable the Windows Installer DisableMSI policy and launch dexplore.exe, it you get a policy message saying that the administrator has prevented windows installer then dexplore.exe is trying to launch an MSI.
If not then you could just execute the legacy setup from a deferred custom action to be able to deploy through GPO.

No it can be unpacked to hh_dex.msi but this msi is not gpo friendly. Was look to see if I missed something in the unpack instructions. Figured someone has gotten this to work.

Could be that the wrapper (dexplore.exe) adds some information required by the MSI or append some public properties (command line) when launching the msi. Try enable verbose logging and see if it gives you any details of passed properties.
