Hi Everyone,

Noob to these forums, but I have been a long time lurker as I am an SCCM 2007 admin. Long story short, I've been pushing out Office 2010 of different flavors (Std, Pro, x86 x64) for about 2 months now.

I just found out that the MSP file I packaged the with Office 2010 was not configured with the "Proofing tools" enabled, thus preventing the spell checker from working.

Do you have any recommendations on how I can push out a configuration change to Office 2010, i.e. just install the Proofing tools feature of Office 2010. I can obviously uninstall/reinstall Office with the properly configured MSP file, but that just seems messy.

Thanks in advance for your advice! Please save me from this horrible situation I have placed myself into!!! [:@]

OK, I figured out how to do this. If you are ever interseted in updating/modifiying the setup/component configuration of Office 2010 installs, you can create a new/modify your existing MSP file by running the Office Configuration Tool (setup.exe /admin).

Then, on the computers in question, run msiexec with the /p switch.

So, example would be: msiexec.exe /p \\server\share\custom.msp

I'm running it with the /qn switch from SCCM so that it is performed silently. Here is a Microsoft Doc with directions on how to do this:
