Hi
I'am installing office 2003 std with some settings for how buttons are displayed in word and so on. When I later install Access to that computer the settings are being overvritten and set do Microsoft default whatever i specify in Custom Installation Wizard. I have tried different profile settings and everything I can thing of.
Anybody who have solved this?

I'm using
Office 2003 English
Swedish MUI
ORK Tools 2003
Access 2003

command to start setup
V:\Access\SETUPACC.EXE TRANSFORMS=V:\Access\access.MST /qb-

Best Regards Henrik

Hi Hendrik,

Almost a Dutch forum here ;-)

Weird problem....
Why didn't you install with MSIEXEC.EXE /i V:\Access\ACC11.MSI TRANSFORMS=V:\Access\access.MST /qb-! ?

Are ALL settings set to default or just the settings common for all Office applications?

Hi Marcel
It maybe is an almoust dutch forum, but then i am a stranger because I'm from Sweden.
The reason for not using msiexex... is that the Custom installation wizard are telling me to use "my" commandline.
And yes it seems that all settings are getting reset, at least them for Word (it's actually mostly there we have own settings).

Hi alstersjo,

Looks like your command line is not working... If you are not using msiexec.exe, and wants to use the setup.exe that you have, you will need to pass all the arguments to msiexec using /V and put / before every ". Here is an example:

V:\Access\SETUPACC.EXE /v"TRANSFORMS=\"V:\Access\access.MST\" /qb-

The other way is to use the Custom Maintenance Wizard of Ork Tools. The parameters are like for msiexec and this is great for updating the client's feature installation states. Ex.

MaintWiz.exe /c "\MS Access.CMW" /qb-

ok?[;)]

Hi dj_xest
Thanks for your response but when I tries your suggestion about /v I get an error that says "Unable to locate v:\access\acc11.msi v" and the installation stops.
The file are in the correct path so I belive that the ".msi v" is the fault.
About the maint wizard, can you use it to install Access as well or do I have to use it afterwards to correct the settings for previously installed officeapplications?
In the last case, why not use profile wizard?

Problem solved.
I was reinstalling the MUI aswell as installing Access. That wasn't necessery and caused this problem somehow...
Now I do a very clean installation of Access and it works fine.
Thanks for all answers anyhow.
