Hey guys,

I hope someone can help. We are pushing office out with a batch file calling the msi and using an mst file. All is working fine but i have a question. Right now office does a quick install for each user that logs into the computer and runs any of the office apps. Does anyone know how to have office NOT do this?

Office is most probably doing this to "repair" HKCU registry values.
Check the Application Event Log on the computer to determine what component is being attempted to be repaired. From this information you can then match it up with the same component ID in the MSI/MST. This should give you an idea of what is trying to be "repaired".

THanks for the reply. I think I might hve not explained it correctly. It does this the first time a new user logged into the computer. If they log off then back on everything is fine. I will definately look into the event ids. I'll post more information after testing.
