I created an Office XP SP3 by this http://unattended.ms...xp_advanced.htm
and it says to rename the
TRANSFORMS=C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\Office2003\Unattended.MST /qb-
to...
TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST /qb-
It won't let me rename that with the Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit Tools I downloaded = orktools.exe on same link. It it keeps that path it probably won't install correctly.
How do you get around this?

thank you for reminding me...

the site isn't too clear about that. It should be that you close out of the ORK tools, and then when adding it to your batch file or whatever you change it THERE to just unattend.mst

Thanks Alanoll
I tried every search I string could and couldn't find anything like that. Also some of my screens were a little different and I thought the version I had was the problem.
Tried everything to open it also and finally with VB and I don't see any path like the long one.

No, don't worry, it will install fine. :yes:
That
TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST /qb-
refers to the command-line to use to install Office2k3.

I know this is quite an old thread, but I thought why opening a new one since this is the same problem I have now. My batch file looks like that and is taken from the above mentioned website:
ECHO.
ECHO Installing Office 2003 Professional
ECHO Please wait...
start /wait "f:\Desktop Support\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\Office2003\setup.exe" TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST /qb-

What is wrong that it won't allow me to install Office 2003? Below is the error message.

---------------------------
TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST
---------------------------
Windows cannot find 'TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------


Could someone please post the correct batch file content?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Thanks for your reply, but the installation files aren't on the C:\ drive. They are on network drive.

Maybe you need to check if the name you used is correct, mine is (whithout quotes):

Example with WPI:
'%WPIPath%\\Install\\Office2003\\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=UNATTEND.MST /qn'

What name? From the unattended.mst file? I double checked that already. F2 on the file, copied the file name and pasted it into the batch file.

So is that case sensitive? Attached is a screenshot of the directory.

Yes, it seems!
Create a new mst file and save as Unattend.mst! I always use successfully like that!

Have you tried whithout quotes and whithout space inside folder names ?:

.\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=UNATTEND.MST /qb-

Example, like this:

start /wait F:\Desktop_Support\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\Office2003\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=UNATTEND.MST /qb-


*Edit: The new link for the web site you told is here now:

YOUR ISSUE IS WITH THIS!!!

\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\


It COPIES THE Office files to the c:\Install dir!!!

Office install WILL NOT look for your "network drive" without extra steps

Lemme ask you 1 thing:

WHY go trough all of the extra steps when you already have ALL of the files being copied to the local system and only need to delete some info from your cmdline?

Perfectly fine questions need to be answered perfectly fine as well :)

Because we're tired of putting the keys in manually every single time + some settings that we put in place that way. We manage over 3k Windows machines and this would make our job a hell of a lot easier.

You are not listening:

I gave you a perfectly fine answer with your existing setup...

Just change the **** comandline it works fine that way.

Otherwise you have to change ALL of your folder structures and commandlines...

You are completly wrong when you say the installation files are not on the c:\drive. the way you have set it up the windows installation process copies them during windows setup...

Regardless where it is, why don't you try:

start /wait msiexec.exe /i PRO11.MSI TRANSFORMS="Unattended.MST"

Maybe try using pushd and popd to simplify the path
ECHO. 
ECHO Installing Office 2003 Professional 
ECHO Please wait...
pushd "f:\Desktop Support\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\Office2003"
Start /wait msiexec.exe /i PRO11.MSI TRANSFORMS="Unattended.MST"
popd
