Hi, I wanna add the SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe add-in to my Office 2007 package.
So I started the OCT Tool and went to the Add installations and run programs section and I added the path where the add-in reside : \\pc-jakeld\setup$\Microsoft\Office\2007 Enterprise EN\Add-Ins\SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe.

The problem is what if the path of the add-in change like if i want to put on a CD how I am suppose to guess which letter will my cd-rom drive be. I want my package compatible on every PC. So I need a variable for the Current Path like [CurrentPath] but unfortunatelly looks like MS forget to include that one which really piss me out.

Any suggestions ?

I'm not intimate with the Office Customistaion Tool but couldn't you just use the shorthand '.' for the current directory? Then your called EXE could live alongside the MSI:

.\SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe

or in a sub-folder branching from the MSI's parent folder:

.\Add-Ins\SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe

Does that work? If my syntax is off, I'm sure you see the principle.

Well, the SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe addon is located in the same folder as setup.exe so I tried without specifying any folders and it did not work [:(]

I'll give a try with your synthax and also with the \. I will let you guys know.
