Hi Guys,

I'm trying to add icons to the dock on Mac (10.5.8) for Microsoft Office 2011. I've got the dmg installing properly but the dock icons never show up. I've tried using a script to write to it but it doesn't seem to work. Has anyone found a way to add icons to the desktop or dock?

running server 5.2 and latest agent.

Microsoft suggests using PackageMaker: http://mac2.microsoft.com/help/office/14/en-us/admin/item/a35ab53c-badf-4fef-bbfe-d5005ad6f7d4?category=1dbf952e-1f61-47f6-85fa-196a22eaf824

Look for "How to include the dock icons package to PackageMaker".

  • The info from Microsoft's site works great if your doing a manual install. It does not work if the package is distributed through KACE. Check link below from scriptingninja. The "defaults" command to update specific plist values is what's needed.

  • I have the same issue.
    This link looks like it will do the trick nicely. Just need to add the logic to also specify existing users and it should be good to go!
