Office 2007, Unattended Setup & Fine-tuning

Recommended Posts

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
Yes, that does it.

That way you'll have the default items installed. (some items are NOT installed by default, so you might want to enable those, but if you just want the default set of items that get installed normally, then dont worry)

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 dont have any official info regarding this, but I'd think it installs them all (in correct order though, so thats a saving grace).
Can we decrease the size of Office 2007 by removing unwanted applications from it as we did with office XP and Office 2003.
I wish that were possible...

Is that mean I still need to put all the hotfixes (new and old) in the folder? But why after installation only few updates listed in add/remove programes?

I really did want every single option installed instead of just defaults. Is there a way to do that?

Yes its possible.

Either using option B (second post in this topic), where I say you can modify it accordingly for the other component products, the options are commented with double-slashes. I obtained the OptionIds from setup.xml files, in each component folder..

Or just use option A which is simple, and while creating your MSP, choose this option for all components - "run from my computer".

That could be because your office 2007 installer files are corrupted or some files missing. Use the original disc.

Or install office 2003 or officeXP, and use the compatibility pack, which lets you read & write to office 2007 file formats.

You can't yet. No-one has come up with a way to do it.

@ yadzil You can't do that either its just not the way it works.

Has anyone figured out how to disable the prompt when a user runs office 2007 for the first time? It's the promp that asks to setup windows update, configure online help, and download a file periodicly etc. Is this possible via the MSP file?

Thats because they don't glean out the out dated hotfixes....

You need to run a clean install and go to office update and ownload just the hotfixes it says you need.
