Hi all,
I am wanting to add a post Installation Install of Office 2007 using an application task. When I upload office what command line do I use to get the install started. and also is there a way to setup an answer sheet so Office fully installs without interaction. Thank you.

There are plenty of posts on this site and Microsoft sites about customising Office 2007.

Run setup.exe /admin to bring up the customisation tool that enables you to modify the installation and create an installation .MSP file with the customisations contained.

I think this might help.

  • I actually followed this tutorial. When I am finished It shows the computers it is to be deployed to but never deploys. After a week of rebooting computers it still has not deployed. Has anyone else seen this?
  • What happens when you run setup.exe /adminfile yourfile.msp from the command line? Does it install? It's probably a silly mistake tripping you up.
    • When I do that it installs fine. It just seems like it doesn't try to run in kace. logs just say it will be installed on those machine but then never installs.
  • I bet its something with the way the file was zipped...

    Did you remember to zip the contents of the folder, not the folder itself? That way when the kbox extracts it, the files are at the root. Also posting a screen shot would really help
    • Yup that is what I did. I believe I zipped it with winrar though. Maybe I will try re-zipping it with windows.
      • Can you also post a screen shot of your managed install? A pic is worth a 1k words.
  • I am a little busy with some other issues right now but I will try to get a screenshot and post it later this week. Thanks.

Following dunnpy and dchristian posts, copy all the files from your disc to a folder on your system. Run setup.exe /admin from a cli or from run. Complete your unattended setup, save the .msp file inside the same folder. ZIP everything up including the .msp file. Upload it to your kace device with the following command setup.exe /adminfile filename.MSP .
