Office 2007 - How do you install a second MSP

12/11/2008 5060 views
How do I install a second MSP for Office 2007 if Office 2007 is already installed. I've tried the msiexec /p 2ndmspfile.msp but after it runs it I do not see the updated features.

I successfully deployed a package using SMS that modified Office 2007 to remove Groove, along with several other requested modifications to the user features. The command line used is similar to yours, except that I silenced the package:

msiexec.exe /p 2_MSOffice_2007_RemoveGroove.MSP /quiet

To create the Office 2007 update package, I opened the first MSP (/admin - customization tool) altered it, and then saved it with a different name before deploying it. Perhaps this is the missing key to success?

Thanks for your reply. I just tried that before reading your post and it only alters what I currently have installed. It's not adding the new software (such as uninstalling word 2003 and installing Word 2007). This is what I've done.

1. Opened up original msp file
2.Altered word 2003 to uninstall and word 2007 to install
3. Altered Outlook 2007 to not be available (we currently have Outlook 2007. I didn't think it would uninstall it but it did)
4. Saved the file as a different name
5. Double click on the new msp to run it.

Just opened my customized installation to try to duplicate what you described you needed to modify. There is a note at the bottom of some of the pages in the Office Customzation Tool that states:
[blockquote]
"Note: Changes made on this page will only take effect during the first installation of the Microsoft Office product. You cannot change these settings once the product is installed."[/blockquote]
This note is at the bottom of the "Remove previous installations" page, as well as a couple of others, so some things cannot be modified.

Thanks for your help. I guess my only option is to run a uninstall of outlook 2007 first then install my new msp.

hello everyone. i have a project for school where we have to rollout office 07. i've done some researching and have found software programs such as AdminStudio, SMS, GFI Languard (network security scanner), and ScriptLogic to automate the installation process.

I have to present to the class this week about my preliminary plan of what methods to use, strengths and weaknesses of each, and identify and explain how updates and upgrades will be distributed.

If you have any experience with the listed software programs I mentioned, please let me know which ones are in my best options. Thank you so much![:)]
