Office 2007, Unattended Setup & Fine-tuning

That is because you have two setup source-directories in the same folder as your setup.exe

So just delete the "Visio.WW"/VisPro.WW/VisStd.WW folder (and keep the "Enterprise.WW" folder).

Please do post back whether this solves it.

1. If I want to include "all" available servicepacks for Office2007, is it just to put them as they are in "Updates" dir on cd ? (for instance office2007-kb924884-fullfile-x86-glb.exe)

2. Is there a way to see exactly what updates I should download to be "up to date" ? (except to install and run update..)

Found this list but maybe some updates replace another !?

Thanks for a great guide :)

Well, I'm not sure if exes work, but MSP updates sure do.

A scenario tested & known to work is that when the office2007 SP1 beta is extracted, and the MSP files placed in Update folder, these updates get installed automatically.

Had to go by the A option instead...

Downloaded all KB:s and unpacked them, changed name on .MSP file to KBxxxx.msp and put them in Updates folder on cd...

Works fine :)

Do you maybe know a way to tell setup that I want a customized setup and keep my previous office 2003 installation ?
Hi Robert,

I believe what you want to do, is to have access to all dialogs, you basically want to just customize the setup defaults & go ahead normally from there on.

Here's how:

Go to the 2nd line in my example above. You see "Display Level="none"". Change it back to "full" instead of "none". That is all.

@clavicle

Thanks indeed. :) I just wish someone finds out how to disable the "MSOcache" facility in o2k7.....

Great post prathapml,

1.

Is there a way to modify config.xml so the install will keep my previous Office 2003 install with Display Level="none"? In another word, when I deploy office2007(Minus Outlook 2007) with option B, the end user doesn't have to make any choice of selecting upgrade or others and still have office 2003 installed.

2.

When I create the .MSP file using option A with User interface set to "Basic" the install still ask me to select a Microsoft Office product to install. Please view attach picture:

-- In OCT selecting which Product to create the MSP for: View attachment 1

-- Setting User Interface for the MSP: View attachment 2

-- Prompt at the Begin of the install with launching command \\server\office2007\setup.exe /adminfile custom.MSP

View attachment 3

Any ideas? Thank in advance.

Im using this method and installing vi runoncex and everything works fine....

The only thing I was wondering is if there is anyway to add a "progress bar" to this.....

It takes quite a while to install and would be nice to see how far along the installation

actually is.....

Nice work everybody.....

Sir,

Can we decrease the size of Office 2007 by removing unwanted applications from it as we did with office XP and Office 2003.

If the hotfixes release to replace the previous hotfixes, are both hotfixes will be install if I put them together in the Updates folder?

Like Outlook Junk email Filter...are all hotfixes will be install or only the latest?

I have the Professional version and want to install everything that one would normally install doing a "Full" install. Does leaving the OptionState line commented out do this, or does someone have a config.xml file that lists every single OptionState item so that a full install can be completed?

Here is what our file looks like now. It looks like it removed all of the Office 2003 items that were installed and installed Access, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Word, and Publisher and I'm assuming that all of the features were installed?

<Configuration Product="Pror">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="Yes" AcceptEula="Yes" />

<!-- <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Professional Setup(*).txt" /> -->

<!-- <PIDKEY Value="BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789B" /> -->

<!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" /> -->

<COMPANYNAME Value="IMS, Inc." />

<INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office 2007" />

<!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->

<!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" /> -->

<DistributionPoint Location="\\omni\ss\pc_software\Office2007_Pro" />

<!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

<Setting Id="Reboot" Value="IfNeeded" />

<!-- <Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" /> -->

</Configuration>
