I thought deploying of 2007 and 2010 products would be easy with SCCM but no! I did msp configuration file by running Customezation tool included with Office source files (setup.exe /admin) and then I added program's command line like setup /adminfile xxx.msp. It does nothing. I tryed also setup /adminfile \\server\source\xxx.msp but still no. When executing that locally in command promt on test machine, setup goes silently all the way and Office is installed. But if I ran a program, it gives me that there is no admin file found or something like that.

It was a while ago I test this, but I remember that I tried all 4 options.

1. Executing program with command line setup /adminfile xxx.msp
2. Executing program with command line setup /adminfile \\server\source\xxx.msp
3. Executing program with batch file with line setup /adminfile xxx.msp
4. Executing program with batch file with line setup /adminfile \\server\source\xxx.msp

Same problem I have with MS Project 2007.

So does anyone knows, what command line should be used with SCCM SP3 R3 system?

If I put xxx.msp in quotas, like setup /adminfile "xxx.msp" or setup /adminfile "\\server\source\xxx.msp", I get error:

The /adminfile command-line option can be used only during initial installation of the product.

IIRC, deployment documentation states you should put your .MSP file inside the "UPDATES" folder.

Ok, If I do that, what would be then the command line parameters?

I actually managed to get that working with setup.exe /adminfile "xxx.msp" but while installing, it shows once an office display window without any interactions.

How about just adding your MSP to the UPDATES folder in your source location? This ofcourse assumes these principles are still the same from v2007, but I'd guess they are.

EDIT: this might also be of use to you: the commandline in our SCCM for Office 2007 is

Source\setup.exe /adminfile Mic_Office2007StandardSP2_120064.MSP /config Standard.WW\config.xml.

The one for OneNote 2010 is roughly the same.

The MSP file is located in the same folder as Office's Setup.exe, not in the UPDATES folder.

EDIT2:

I actually managed to get that working with setup.exe /adminfile "xxx.msp" but while installing, it shows once an office display window without any interactions.


full suppression of user interaction is done in the config.xml file which is mentioned in the command line above.


Kind regards,

You dont have to do that as long as you tell setup.exe where the msp file is.
I would also take PJ's advice and also specify the config.xml file.

When you edit the msp using setup.exe /admin there are otions for the display level.

Sorry for stupid questions but how can I create config.xml? Deployment tool offers me only .msp.

...I know, I should read MS article once again...

You dont need to create one as it is already there.

\\setup.exe \adminfile \\office2010.msp /config \\Standard.ww\config.xml

Depending on what version, standard, enterprise etc etc.

Yes,
Display level = none
Suppress model = checked

..still the Office yellow logo appears at the start and probably installation during task sequence fails because of that.

The following is the command line I use -

Setup.exe /adminfile Updates\Office_2010.MSP /config Updates\config.xml

And the following are the contents of the config file.

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" /> -->

</Configuration>

And this works

not working how?

- nothing happens
- install starts but is not silent
- install starts but does not take into account the MSP

What does the install log tell you?

Very nice, I believe it would work in my case. I'll have to give it a try, if my Office won´t work during Operating System Deployment. As mandatory program advertisement, it works fine now with setup /adminfile "XXX.MSP".

i still cant get any of those commands to work,

if I go to C:\Program Files\KACE\KBOX\downloads\

I see a folder with a random number show up, then under that folder is the zip file... i see it download

then i see it extract. The name of the zip was Off2010.zip, so it unzips to a folder called Off2010

then it stops... so that tells me what? my command line is wrong?

You don't make any sence here. Did you download this source from torrent or what? In Office deployment, there is nothing has to be done with .zip.

Hello, I have the same problem. I have the files compressed (according to Kace) and zipped, then the command line without the quotes (Setup.exe /adminfile total.msp) with a pre-install message (so i can see if the pc responds) so it started the install, but doesn't take the msp file into account, and when I click install (instead of customize) the install program stops. The zip file is uncompressed, all the files are in downloads in the Kbox directory, but setup does not launch....

You can also use msiexec /i "Office2010.msi" /update "Adminfile.MSP" /qb to apply the settings you want at run time. This allows you to create mulitple installations without having to worry about what is in your update folders. (Installing just OneNote for tablet users or just Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint for Admin Staff)
