This note is about deploying Microsoft Office 2003 Resource Kit via Active Directory GPO Software Distribution.

________________________________________________________

Download the Office 2003 resource kit from the below link:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/e/d/0eda9ae6-f5c9-44be-98c7-ccc3016a296a/ork.exe
________________________________________________________

Make sure that in your profile your %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Temp directory is empty.

You can now start the executable ORK.EXE. Do not execute anything just browse via the explorer to the above specified directory. There you can find the files you need to use for deployment (ork.msi). Copy all those files to your sharepoint / unc file location. Edit the ORK.MSI with ORCA and change the table AdvtExecuteSequence to match the following values:

CostFinalize 100
CostInitialize 50
CreateShortcuts 250
PublishComponents 550
PublishFeatures 600
RegisterClassInfo 300
RegisterTypeLibraries 500
InstallFinalize 700
InstallInitialize 200
InstallValidate 150
MsiPublishAssemblies 575
PublishProduct 650
RegisterExtensionInfo 350
RegisterMIMEInfo 450
RegisterProgIdInfo 400
UnSupportedInstallType 1, 75

That's all!!

Note
Something we did to lighten the load in an enterprise, is remove extra's like InfoPath and Publisher from Office 2k3 distro using the ORK.

If a user requests Publisher or InfoPatch, we have seperate distro's that run MAINTWIZ.EXE and add those components into the existing Office 2003 Installation. Great tool to pick and choose who gets what. Just a suggestion.
