Hey guys,

I'm packaging Office 2010 x86 to run on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 and in my MSP, I have the KMS activation string:

[SystemFolder]\cscript.exe "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OSPP.VBS" /act

However, on 64-bit machines, this script is stored in "Program Files (x86)".

I tried putting strings for both paths, but it seems to stop executing all the commands in that section if one of them fails.

How have others been working around this?

Thanks for your help!

If you are executing the activation as a custom action then why not specify the formatted path to the OSPP.VBS?
[SystemFolder]\cscript.exe "[#OSPP.VBS]" /act

You may have to change the [#OSPP.VBS] as it may have a different identifier.

That's a possibility, although I was hoping to only use the Office Customization Tool to keep it as Microsoft standard as possible.

My other solution would be to make 2 different .msp's for x86 and x64, I guess, but I'd like to avoid that.
