We had Office 2003[:D]
Wanted Outlook 2007[&:]
Used Office 2007 OCT to setup a custom.MSP[8D]
Installed JUST Outlook 2007 using custom.MSP[:)]
Now we want all Office 2007.[:@]

Can't upgrade using MSP if existing Office 2007 components exist... what do to?
Uninstall Outlook then reinstall whole package? What a waste..

Can you upgrade components using config.XML method (never used it)?

Try installing the office2007 msi by passing ADDLOCAL property with required features and REINSTALL=ALL and REINSTALLMODE=AMUS in the command line. I guess this should fix it

Was it a good idea to use your email address as an alias on a public forum? Not unless you sell anti-spam software, I suppose...

Any further help on this? Launching an upgrade using a MSP file the error is "/adminfile command-line option can be used only during initial installation of the product"
Can I convert a MSP file to a config.xml for installation via that method?
Hari, I've never seen an Office 2007 MSI

I can't really help you because a) this new use of patch files to install products (instead of for patching them!) is quite new and b) we took the decision to NOT do any piece-meal installations: it's all or nothing. For those machines on which we *did* do piece-meals (there was apparently a crushing business requirement for Excel 2007, as it has vastly-increased row/column capacity - how about designing your spreadsheets properly, boys? I digress...), we uninstalled what was there and re-installed the entire suite.

OCT wont work if Office is already installed. If you need to change a setting use a gpo.... if you need to install another app then just create a single install...
