Office 2007 Config.xml

Hi,

I have an Office 2007 deployment using the OCT and Config.xml which is all good except for the ARPCONTACT entry which isn't appearing in ARP.

My Config.xml:

<Configuration Product="ProPlus">

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

<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="NEVER" />

<ARP ARPCONTACT="Some Company"

ARPHELPTELEPHONE="123456789"

ARPNOMODIFY="Yes" />

</Configuration>

The no modify and help tel etc. work as expected it's just the contact which is missing. Am I missing something really obvious here? The install is run as setup.exe /config <path>\config.xml with an MSP in the Updates folder.

Looks fine to me:

Have you logged the install to see if something else is changing the value

Mike,

this could be completely along the wrong path, but have you tried replacing

<ARP ARPCONTACT="Some Company"

ARPHELPTELEPHONE="123456789"

ARPNOMODIFY="Yes" />

with

<ARP

ARPCONTACT="Some Company"

ARPHELPTELEPHONE="123456789"

ARPNOMODIFY="Yes"

/>

long shot but maybe the span support for the tags isn't all that [:)]

I would venture that it is simply good practise to close any tag, be it HTML, XML or whatever.

OK the logs showed the ARPCONTACT being parsed along with everything else. I tried a few different ways of formatting the file to no avail. I have now used the .msp to add the entry to the registry from there. It's not ideal but works.
