Hi all!

Is there a way that I can create a COMPLETELY AUTOMATED, single exe install of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook 2000? I want it so that the user can simply launch the exe file and it begins installing and finishes automatically.

How are you deploying the software?

Because it's an msi, you can create a transform to customize the install & use the msiexec command to supress all notification.

For a manual, you could create a batch file or wisescript depending on what you have available to run the msiexec command.

For an automated deployment, depending on your deployment system, you could advertise the msi so that it installs itself the first time the icon is launched.

Microsoft also has a Resource Kit inwhich you can create MST's as well as OPS's.
