Note
After much effort with OpenOffice 3.X and finally getting it to work with much "hacking" into configuration files and registry, you will be pleased to hear (if you did the same) that OpenOffice4Kids is simplified.

I modified the MSI a bit with Wise Package Studio 7 to rename the shortcut deployed the desktop however the following are my steps and environment.

[Environment]
SCCM 2007 w/ ActiveDirectory
Windows 7 x86/x64 Clients (over 6000+)

[Utilities]
7-Zip*
Wise Package Studio 7 (optional)


//Step1
Download the most recent openoffice4kids. In the root directory, extract it with 7-zip (or your preferred utility) as it is an SFX archive containing the MSI's.

//Step2
You will notice the MSI extracted with the source components. In my case, I see "ooo4kids12.msi".

//Step3
All MSI switches work with this installer.

ooo4kids12.msi /quiet
Silent Install without Prompt

If you're new to deployment, review the following resources for information on MSI switches.

Final Note: I have not dug into customizing this package very much however with proper knowledge on basic MSI manipulation - you can do quite a few things as this is a VERY simplified version of OpenOffice.

You must extract the installer that comes with OOo4Kids by using an unpackaging software to get to the .msi installer (WinRAR, 7-ZIP, etc).
