Pretty much the same as Office 2007:

Silent Install:

You need to create an MSP file first by running from the Office 2010 folder setup.exe /admin

You can customise the MSP from there. But to make sure you get a complete silent install:

In the "Licensing and User interface" section, tick "I accept the terms in the license agreement", Display level is set to "none", "completion notice" is un-checked, "Suppress model" is ticked.

Once the MSP file has been created you can run a silent install by: setup.exe /adminfile <the .MSP file you created>

I did find that Office 2010 wasn't activated by default so when a user opens office for the first time it would ask to activate. You can do this automatically by adding the following to a batch file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /act

The VB script can be found in the Office 2010 folder.


Silent Uninstall:

To silently uninstall Office 2010, you need a xml file. I have used this:

command: setup.exe /uninstall ProPlus /config SilentUninstallconfig.xml

The contents of the xml file I use is:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

</Configuration>

(Obviously you will need to place the relevant file paths for your location of the Office 2010 setup files / folders)

Office Customization Tool in Office 2010

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179097(office.14).aspx

The OCT is part of the Setup program and is the recommended tool for most customizations. You run the OCT by typing setup.exe /admin at the command line from the root of the network installation point that contains the Office 2010 source files. For example, use the following: \\server\share\Office14\setup.exe /admin. The OCT is available only with volume licensed versions of Office 2010 and the 2007 Office system. To determine whether an Office 2010 installation is a volume licensed version, check the Office 2010 installation disk to see whether it contains a folder named Admin. If the Admin folder exists, the disk is a volume license edition. If the Admin folder does not exist, the disk is a retail edition.

NOTE: The version of Office 2010 that is available for MSDN and TechNet subscribers does not have the Admin folder, and uses a retail key. You will not be able to create a customized installation from this media. Instead, you will need the Volume License media.

When OCT is not included in the media, edit Config.xml file for customization or silent installation:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179195%28office.14%29.aspx

In order to disable pop-up window at first launch, add this registry key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\General]
"ShownFirstRunOptin"=dword:00000001

And for activating MS office use this command-line:
cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.vbs" /act

  • Hey I need some assistance. I am creating a package using your help. However I still have some issues. I configured my config.xml file with the registry key and script but it doesn't seem to work. The software installs but still ask for activation. I ran that script manually and it said it needs admin privilege. would have to update that script to run as admin ( can you show me what that would look like) Also am I correct in putting the command within the config.xml

    thanks for your help.

There is an awesome Office 2010 uninstaller vbs script that you can download from Microsoft at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/. Find the "Office 2010 suites" section and click the Fixit button to download the msi package. However, when you run the MSI you can grab the offscrub10.vbs script from %temp%\fixit\and use it via the command line to uninstall any of the Office 2010 products.

If you want to uninstall all of the Office products you simple run:

cscript offscrub10.vbs all

Additionally you can run it with no parameters and see the other command line options.

To uninstall just Office 2010 ProPlus you would run:

cscript offscrub10.vbs ProPlus

The tool is provided for people that cannot run the uninstall via Programs and Features in Control Panel. But why bother even doing that when you can uninstall silently via command line!

Create your .msp file using the /admin switch, save it in the root of the Office files as custom.msp. Then select all files and create a .zip of the whole installation. Add the below command as a "Configure Manually" in your KBOX.

setup.exe /adminfile custom.msp

Note

One glaring ommission about creating the MSP file after running "Setup.exe /admin" is that once you create the resulting .MSP file, you save it to the "Updates" subfolder of the network installation point, and any MSP files contained within that folder are automatically applied when Setup.exe is run (including the customisations you've made).

As with previous Office versions Office 2010 will not install the OutlookVBScript component as part of an install on an RDS server (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff506202.aspx).

To add it post install run the same command as for the Office 2007 fix

e.g. msiexec /i {GUID} ADDLOCAL=OutlookVBScript /qb

where {GUID} is the GUID for your particular Office installation as found in Windows 2008R2 at either C:\MSOCache\AllUsers\ or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\InstalledPackages

Using config.xml, the configuration file passed as parameter to the setup.exe

The config.xml file contains setup properties in tag format as shown in example below.

<Configuration Product="Standard">

<Display Level="None" CompletionNotice="No" SuppressModal="Yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

<ARP ARPCOMMENTS ="Packaged by Dell" ARPCONTACT ="" ARPURLINFOABOUT =""
ARPURLUPDATEINFO ="" ARPHELPLINK ="" ARPHELPTELEPHONE =""
ARPNOMODIFY="Yes" ARPNOREMOVE="Yes" ARPNOREPAIR="No" />

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" HIDEUPDATEUI="True"/>

<COMPANYNAME Value="PBL Media" />

<USERNAME Value="PBL Media" />

</Configuration>

The "ARP" properties are not available in MST created through OCT.

How Setup uses Config.xml

Setup looks for a copy of Config.xml in the same folder as Setup.exe. Alternately, one can pass the complete path of the configuration file as parameter to the setup.exe as :- \setup.exe /config {path of configuration file}\config.xml

To include SP1 for installation at the same time as initial setup, download SP1 (see related links section), and run officesuite2010sp1-kb2460049-x86-fullfile-en-us.exe /extract. From the extracted folder, just copy the .msps to your Updates folder.

Current as of 29 June 2011, I just applied SP1 to a new installation of Office 2010 Professional Plus and then went to Microsoft Update to see what was outstanding.

I can confirm that SP1 includes all previously released public updates except for the April 2011 junk mail definition update (KB972726).

As a result, my Updates folder only contains the 12 msps from SP1, the customization .msp and outlfltr.msp from KB972726.

A bug exists in the SP1 upgrade to Office 2010. For my organization, we're choosing not to install the "Sharepoint Workspace" feature (formerly known as Groove). I used "Setup.exe /admin" to create an MSP for the Office install that does not install the Sharepoint Workspace files. When SP1 installs however, this feature is re-enabled. It's a bug confirmed by Microsoft:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/officesetupdeploy/thread/015ea622-0c8f-49b4-8e73-ae4fb4d1c716

I have the SP1 MSPs in the Office 2010 'Updates' folder so that it applies during the installation automatically. To resolve the issue of SP Workspace getting enabled, you have to modify the install of Office. The URL I posted above steps through how to do it, but I'm going to list it here, too. First create a new 'Config.XML' that has a line in it to skip the SP Worksapce files:

<OptionState Id="GrooveFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />

Then call the Office 2010's "Setup.exe" with a '/Modify' switch.

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /modify ProPlus /config "<config file location>\NoGroove_config.xml"

A Normal.dotm file is created in Word 2010. This file is pushed out to client computers (%appdata%\Microsoft\Templates) manually, by script, or in a custom MSP file that was created by using the Office Customization Tool (OCT).

When Word 2010 is started for the first time, the custom Normal.dotm file is renamed as "NormalOld.dotm." Therefore, customization that is stored in the Normal template is lost.

To resolve this issue, add the following registry key and value before Word is started after the upgrade.


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options]
"MigrateNormalOnFirstBoot"=dword:00000001This registry key and value prevent Word 2010 from renaming existing (or custom) Normal.dotm files.

Office Professional Plus 2010 doesn't make it obvious if the installation is 32 or 64 bit. You can find the bitness via the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Bitness key will have a value of x86 or x64. If Outlook is not installed, then you can find the bitness by running the powershell script at https://gist.github.com/2292484 You can also . source the script. What you want out of it is the function Get-BinaryType which you pass the explicit location of word to I.E. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE" This will return the Bitness as BIT32 or BIT64.

Ever have your install of office want to register for every user? Make these registry changes to stop that

HKCU\Software\MicroSoft\Office\14.0\Execel\Options

HKCU\Software\MicroSoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options

Created DWORD under both                           NoReReg           Value of 1

If creating a master to sysprep and you are copying that user to default this will fix it for all users.

As my above post is a bit outdated... Here's a new one.

Microsoft has made some minor changes in the guide for sequencing the RC and later versions of Office 2010.

The new guide can be found here (it's actually easier now as they removed some steps for messing around with registry keys):
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/983462


The Offvirt.msi which they speak of in the guide is part of the 'Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V' which can be downloaded here:
