Office 2007, Unattended Setup & Fine-tuning

328 posts in this topic

I configured my config.xml file. Now when I launch setup, it takes about 30 seconds for Office to install However when I check in All Programs, Office isn't there. I knew it wasn't installing because the process wouldn't take 30 seconds (+)(-)

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Apparently your setup is encountering an error & rolling back.

Change the display level to full, to find out where the error is. Also, keep the original config.xml & change one setting at a time to identify where it goes wrong.

I have an AIO Office 2k7 install.

To optimize space I would like to know the files/folders only for Office 2k7 Enterprise Edition, is it possible??? Which one are???

This would be a warez question.

In any case, reply REMOVED

Please refrain from offering support for obviously warez'd software.

Sorry, but I don't know why do you think it's warez just asking for which files or folders to use in an installation.... I'm not asking for serials or nothing like that, just a bunch of names of files and folders...

Hi All,

I have made a unattended XPSP2 CD using nlite plus addons, DriverPacks which include a script created and compiled with AutoHotKey (script below) that installs Office2007 which in turn runs from the CD using a custom.msp which is placed in the updates folder, but when it goes through it's process at 12min all installs properly untill the big Install Now button from O2K7 comes up. Is ther a way to make the install completely silent giving no prompts thus making a true unattended install. Any help would be greatly recieved.

; <COMPILER: v1.0.46.7>

Runwait, OFFICE12\setup.exe

Regards

M

all installs properly untill the big Install Now button from O2K7 comes up.
You can make it take all responses from the MSP by default, by changing DisplayLevel to none.

Of course, test it atleast once manually, before starting with unattended setup.

I solved it using your instruction: "You can make it take all responses from the MSP by default, by changing DisplayLevel to none."

Its cool to read that everybody here seems to have the very expensive Enterprise Edition!!!

I don't think that you have the money to buy it!

I for one hav not had any luck with the plan B. I found plan A to be very easy once I understood what the OCT wanted.

I keep receiving one of those report error to microsoft messages when WPI tried to launch the setup.exe

I have an enterprise edition from MSDN. I am trying this over a vmware virtual session, has anyone else gotten the same error?

Do i need to install anything before hand maybe? .net framework?

thanks alot

Hmmm, need more details, maybe a screenshot, & a text-file of the exact data that it is asking u to send to MS.

But mostly, its prolly due to a corrupted DLL in System32 folder, or that MSI v3.1 is not installed?
