This is sort of a packaging question (if not please delete it). I built a transform for Office 2007 to install Outlook, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Word. The transform I built removes all previous versions of Office. I pushed it to a workstation that previously had Office 2003. After the upgrade, I cannot access Outlook and it's shown as Not Available in Add/Remove programs. When I try to add Outlook 2007, I receive an error and can go no further. I'm trying to replicate this error but I have been unable to do so. Some of our other techs have seen this issue too but did not save the error. Any have heard of such an issue?

A transform for 2007 ?
2007 doesnt use transforms. It uses MSP files and an XML.
Running "setup /admin" will bring up the 2007 setup wizard. You can choose to remove previous versions of Office from there, or install or not install each app. And configure Outlook.

Sorry - I still refered to it as a transform even though it's considered a Microsoft "patch." Anyway, the MSP is created and works when doing a fresh installation or an upgrade from Office XP to Office 2007. However, when upgrading from Office 2003 to Office 2007, there have been certain instances where Outlook was not installed and shown as not available in Add/Remove programs. Thanks again!

As ever, the next question is, did you create a verbose log and what does it tell you?
