I found one solution :
it is necessary to configure the config.xml : ligne command path :
<Command Path="c:\windows\system32\msiexec.exe" Args='/x "{ID package}"' QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="before" Execute="install" />

and it work fine !!

The Office 2007 installation will by default uninstall previously installed versions.

I don't think it natively handles Access 2003, though, does it?

You're right Ian,

Missed standard and access.
You need to use the 2007 Professional Plus or Enterprise version for it to be able to uninstall Access.

The Office 2007 installation will by default uninstall previously installed versions - true, but I must admit....on occasions it did fail with me, due to certain files being 'locked' during install (even though every application (IE, Communicator, all other apps) was closed!). This would flag to my deployment tool that a reboot was needed during the install, and the installation progress would come to a halt. This behaviour even occurred when I tested it in passive mode and silent mode! (If i recall, MS advised you to install in silent mode to overcome this issue, but it didn't work.) The only option which worked reliably for me was to remove Office 2003 using the relevant ProductCode beforehand.....automated of course. The limitation of that, of course, is that some settings (Eg existing 'Save As' location etc etc) from an Office 2003 upgrade didn't migrate to Office 2007.....which I had to address....
