I have been trying to get a managed install of Office Professionsal Plus 2007 into the Kace 1000. I have zipped the office 2007 file and created a oct and saved it in the Updates folder named O2K7.MSP. I then have attached this to the Upload & Associate New File and used the full command line: setup.exe. I then try to push this out to a user but I still cannot not get it to install. Any ideas.

Thank you.

Calling setup.exe without parameters isn't going to run a silent installation. I had issues with Office 2007 as well, and I ended up having to use the /adminfile parameter to call the MSP and /config to call the config.xml file.

Remember to always do an apples to apples test of your command line. That step and others are in this faq:

Unfortunately I have to disagree with you on this. I have been deploying Office 2007 Pro, SMB and Standard for a couple years now with kbox MIs by just running setup.exe and having the .MSP file in the updates folder that was created by the OCT.

Lanman I would check your OCT file and make sure it is properly configured. Also make sure you don't have 2 configuration files in the Updates folder as this can cause some issues.

When you zipped the Office folder is the setup.exe file at the root of the zip file?

It may depend upon the type of installation. We use Enterprise - which has different media and a different installer. Placing the MSP in the Update folder did not work for us.

I've seen putting the msp in the updates folder work SOMETIMES.

I will say that calling the msp explicitly in the command line works EVERYTIME.
