I was able to get the following fix to work but i need to know how can i automate this while the product is already installed? I have also noticed that there is a proofing.msi in C:\MSOCache\All Users & few xml files but the msi file doesn't have any Thesaurus enable options in there. Please advise

1/ go to control panel

2/ Add or remove programs

3/ Ms office 2007

4/ change

5/ add or remove features, then click continue

6/ click office shared features

7/ click proofing tools

8/ click the english proofing tools

9/ click continue to install

I figured it out. If you need to install the Proofing tool then create a config.xml file & copy it under \\server\share\Office12\Pro.WW my config file looks somthing like this.

referenced from [link]http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179042(office.12).aspx[/link]

Command line
\\server\share\Office12\setup.exe /config \\server\share\Office12\Pro.WW\Config.xml



Config.xml

Good work, Syed. Personally, I wouldn't bother with the lines where 'State' is 'Absent'.
