It appears you would need to uninstall Office and then install with the new component, but you could try a "side by side" install. Not sure how well that would work though. I would recommend the latter so as to be sure not to cause any other future problems.

incorrect..

two ways to do it.

msiexec /i <path to msi> REINSTALL="ALL" ADDLOCAL="xxxx,xxxx,xxxx" /qb-

or the other method is use a script to access the installer service.

of the cuff it would be something along the lines of this (you would need to check the syntax this was rattled off my head)

set objInstaller = CreateObject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")
set objProduct = objInstaller.Product("product code")
objProduct.SetFeatureState = "feature name", "feature state constant"

Thank you so much for you answers,
I tried installing the msiexec /i PublisherMUI.msi REINSTALL="ALL" AddLOCAL="Microsoft Publisher"
(I found this msi in the office 2010 folders).I am getting the error 2711.
Can you please let me know if the procedure i followed is correct?
And suggest any methods to make the installation silent ?Any help is appreciated.

Make sure ADDLOCAL is in all upper-case. More importantly, the feature name has to be the name as it appears in the feature table. Taking previous Office packages into account, I'm going to guess yours is called 'PublisherFiles'.

i checked both Microsoft Publish and PublisherFiles for the feature nameReally? The MSI for Publisher 2007 at my current client tells me that the main feature is called 'PubPrimaryInt_1033'.

TechNet tells me here that for 2010, it's called 'PubPrimary'.

I figured that, given the clue, you might actually look this up for yourself.
