Unattended Office 2k3

9 posts in this topic

Has no one found a way to make a fully unattended office 2003 ?

i've been looking all around msfn, google, and irc to find a solution.. so far zilch.. anything remotely close to what i want so far is an AIO office DVD.

i did have one question though, the guide mentions the office 2003 pro edition plus frontpage.... i don't have that, but is there some way to intergrate frontpage into the unattended install as well?

all of office is a WIndows INstaller. So yes, just add Frontpage just like any other program. The only reason an volume version would be needed is to make the admin point to integrate the service pack and hotfixes, otherwise you just install them AFTER office is installed.

I'm afraid I wouldn't know how to do this.. I intend on keeping my Windows installation seperate from my Office installation sessions. My goal is to have office 2k3 pro cd 1 and cd 2 all on a single unattended disc. However, my skills with the resource kit for the first time are minimal.. and it's a little difficult to understand how to effectively add frontpage.

well, in that case.... you have two options...

typically you can create a folder "Frontpage" and add the entire Frontpage setup source into that folder and it should work. You will have to have them install seperately. You can't combine the two installs into one.

You can however have like a batch file or similar launch both installs silenced.

The Resource Kit to make the transform is documented on the site.
