Our organization has finally purchased Office 2007 Pro Plus. I extremely dislike that the whole suite force caches itself on the workstation but it looks like there is no alternative at this point. What I absolutely do not want is any of the Outlook installation files on my server or any of the workstations. Anyone know how to completely remove a component from the installation point? I've been successful at removing it from the server but setup then complains when I try to install on the workstation. I've tried messing with some of the XML files but it looks like MS has set a checksum on them to prevent changes. My last resort is to run a script at the end to delete the cached files.

Are you using the Office Customization tool for Office 2007?

I don't even start on an Office distro without going through the ORK. Haven't done a 2007 install yet, But the Office Resoarce Kit was the only way to build for Office 2000 and 2003.

Yes, I have a configured working installation of 2007 using the OCT that does not install outlook but the installation files are in the LIS cache and I want to know if there is a way to completely remove any reference to Outlook.

Or better yet has anyone figured out how to disable the LIS?
