Stop Microsoft Office 2003 apps initial install

I have created our corporate deployment package for Microsoft Office 2003 Standard Edition (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) using an msi / mst combination using the Office 2003 resource kit.

This installation has gone smoothly.

When a user ""for the very first time"" launches one of these applications, the standard msi procedure is to launch the initial installation dialog box.

My question, can this initial installation dialog box be suppressed completely?

Is there an mst setting that can cripple this behaviour?

Thanks again

This is the per-user part of the setup. If it does not run, the user is not set up. Why do you want to stop it?

I agree with YatesAG ... i don't think we can stop this buz it's per user base thing...if we would have use install & capture could have done something about this.. but not this time.... !!!
