To make a silent installtion of Microsoft Office 2007, I used the setup.exe /admin switch and created a MSP file.
After, I try to run the setup.exe /adminfile officestandard.msp.

Somehow I get a installation screen (http://i11.tinypic.com/2d2d8qs.jpg) to choose a product to install. The officestandard.msp should already contain the information I want to install (Standard). Thats what I choose while creating the MSP.

If I choose the standard installation, the installation with MSP is executed.

Is there a way to get around this screen?

Perhaps you could try using the /config switch and point it to the location of config.xml in the Standard.WW subfolder.

For example :

setup.exe /adminfile officestandard.msp /config <path to Standard.WW subfolder>config.xml
