Hi guys, I was searching through the forum for a way to make a silent install of the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack ( http://office.micros...1686761033.aspx ) and I realized there was nothing specific on the net, or, at least I wasn´t able to find it.

So, after a little bit of research and try, I came up with this tested and working method:

1. download the file from here: http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

2. run the prompt on it using these switches:
/quiet /passive /norestart

voila! silent installation done

PS 1 if you want to see all available switches, run this command on it:
FileFormatConverters.exe /extract:path

PS 2 I suspect that only the /passsive switch is enough...

You went through too much trouble. You could simply extract the file using WinRAR for example, leaving you with an MSI-file, which you can install silently like any other MSI-file. You could even package it into a 1-file silent installer if you want then.

WinRAR is my mistake, sorry, doing this by heart. You should use Universal Extracter. You can find it here on the forum.

Try to copy MSECache folder after installation and make a silent installer with
7-zip sfx with switch /qn /norestart
after the name of msi file.

First Extract FileFormatConverters.exe with 7-zip

Extracted files (output):
-O12Conv.cab
-EULA
-README.HTM
-files12.cat
-O12Conv.msi

2. Create a new Group Policy and assign the O12Conv.msi in Computer Configuration\Software Settings\Software Installation

Tested in production environment. Works fine!

Of course it does, but it doesn't create you an unattended, silent installer for during your unattended setup ;)

What about a chained install using the Setup.ini file of office 2003? It does not appear to inherit the display options of the MS office installer as it should, nor does the DISPLAY parameter in the [Chained Install] section appear to work . Has anyone managed it?

I am about to try it using a batch file
