I wrote a package to install Office 2007. We're upgrading from Office 2003. The bulk of the 2003 PCs have Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook installed. For the Office 2007 install we're installing the whole suite of apps. I've done minimal configuring to the installation, and creating it was fairly easy.

We've burned the installation to some DVDs and have installed to a small number of test users. There were no installation issues.

Now we're doing some test deployment via SCCM and keep getting an error in the Office 2007 installation log file. And on the PCs we've tried the SCCM deploy and failed, we've tried installing manually from where the files exist on our SCCM network share, and that works fine.

A Google search hasn't turned up anything useful. Here's what the error is in the log file:

MSI(INFO): 'Action ended 12:39:23: CASqm. Return value 1.'

There's nothing analogous to this in the log file of the successful install. Not sure what to try to resolve this issue.

My guess would be that the Custom Action 'Write_sqlLocalServers' is trying to access network resources. SCCM uses the local System account which has no such access.

What does a Google for that CA turn up?
