Hi there,

I am currently somewhat successfully deploying Office 2007 Enterprise via Group Policy. I have a config.xml file which works perfectly and basically installs everything except Outlook and Groove.

However, if i come to rebuild a PC (using a very bare syspreped Ghost 8 image), It deploys still, but when i login, all i see on the start menu are the 2 applications that are supposed to be absent (i.e. Outlook and Groove). If i create a .docx file on the desktop and double click it, the windows installer kicks in and corrects the office install (but it takes ages).

Can anyone give me any troubleshooting suggestions? (all my other MSI's deploy properly on rebuilds - except the office 2007 apps).

Cheers,
Bodge

Since I know you have done this procedure successfully I would like to know if you can
share with us how you got Office 2007 deployment to work. I will really appreciate it or
if you can send me an email to exchange toughts. Thanks

I'm somewhat new at the Group Policy deployment but when attempting to deploy Office 2007 I've noticed that when following Microsoft's directions, the start menu program will only be the one's that are supposed to be absent. If running an Office 07 product (the long configuration screen will occur) and possibly a reboot, the start menu will appear as it's meant to. This is kind of an old topiuc but for anyone who needs reference.....
