I've created a package for installing Office 2K3 through SMS, It works fine on new systems as well as on systems running previous versions of Office application. After successful package deployment on machine which has MS Project 2K3 & Visio installed, when I launch Project/Visio application, it prompts to enter the license key for Project/Visio.
Please, help me in getting rid of this prompt.
Thanks in advance

Sandeep, I think the reason you've not got any replies is that you didn't give much detail. In any case, your first step for Office 2003 would be to download the Office 2003 resource kit, enter the license in the admin install and suppress the license prompt using the resource kit. Hope this helps.

I don't know for sure but I imagine this is because the Office installation is messing with the license details for Project/Visio. The only way to know for sure would be to monitor the Project/Visio start-up with a process monitor like ProcMon and see what registry key is being accessed. Then you can look for that key in the Office MSI. I *think* - and am happy to be corrected - that it'll be a GUID-formatted key beneath HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Registration
