  • What i did was created a batch file with all the commands that are needed. Then i copied the script into the software upload or into my zip file that i uploaded. Sorry i did it both ways. Onsite is faster if i just use the script then offsite for us.

    Then i just pointed the main install to the script. my script is below. This works on All operating systems.
    rem @ECHO OFF

    set fpath=\\cdhisprojsvr01\Software\Applications\Microsoft Office\Office 2007\Pro Plus 2007

    ECHO Installing Microsoft Office 2007 Professional. Please Wait.
    "%fpath%\setup.exe" /adminfile CooleyInstall.MSP
    Echo Installing Office 2007 SP3. Please Wait.
    "\\cdhisprojsvr01\Software\Applications\Microsoft Office\Office 2007\Updates 2007\office2007sp3.exe" /passive /norestart

    ECHO Office Installation Complete.
