Hello everyone,

Has anyone experience that Office 2007 aborts a software deployment script? I'm using Symantec LiveState delivery to send Office 2007 (my script points to a network share) a workstation. The script initially executes, Office 2007 installs and right at the tail end, LiveState errors out. I check the error logs and I get either the following error codes:

Error 1641 <-- That's if Office 2007 automatically reboots before the LiveState session ends (which causes to error out)

-- OR --

Error 3010 <-- That's the result I get if I go into the OCT tool, disable all display prompts, unattended installation and add the SETUP_REBOOT property = NEVER....

I'm really stuck. My LiveState script only has one line of code to point to the share but Office 2007 kills the LiveState session because it tries to reboot itself. If I disable the reboot through OCT, LiveState just hangs there (because if you enable SETUP_REBOOT property = NEVER, the Office 2007 installation just stops dead in its tracks, and it can't go to the next line in LiveState, thus hanging)

What can I do? I can't use the REBOOT=REALLYSUPRESS because I'm running the setup.exe followed by the .msp customization file (which i thought would take care of everything).. Creating a config.xml file would be pointless because the OCT is supposed to handle all of that...

Any suggestions? Workarounds? I'll be happy to provide any more info if needed.

Hope you found an answer to this already. But I run the install through Livestate with a Batch file. So instead of running the installer through the line of code, I call the Batch and then issue a sleep command to allow time for the job to complete.

Use a config.xml file, it is only a word or 2 on the command line. A xml file already exists, so just add the command to suppress reboot. Look in the Package KB for the exact command.
