im installing it via msp file but now in vista the setup doesnt associate office files and everytime an office app is launched i get a windows "wait until windows configures office 2007".
You ran office2007 setup on vista silently? Was it before first-logon by any chance? That can lead to vista discarding the registry entries made by o2k7 setup, leading to this problem.
I run o2k7 setup thru <SynchronousCommand> during the <oobeSystem> pass, which is working properly.
The Action Pack is missing the \admin folder and has r suffix on these files\folders..
Interesting! I wonder if removing the 'r' suffix & copying an \admin folder over, will allow it to work ?
I try to use option A, work, but isnt is 100% silent. Open one screen with a button for click Install.
You must set the DisplayLevel to "none" - either thru the MSP or thru the xml.
please, help me. i can't install office 2k7. I have tried with option B, but i cant install anything, it always put me a window asking me for the PROPLS.WW
That must be because the Configuration-Product needs to be changed. The attached xml in Option-B is an example, you must compare it to your edition of office & modify accordingly.
..... "The Setup configuration file config.xml is not valid. Run Setup again without using a Setup configuration file, or fix the configuration file."
There is no configuration file in the Setup folders...
Even VL editions of Office do have (and need) a config.xml
It might be needed to copy over that file from your CD. (or re-download from MVLS, etc)
It looks like this is the only problem, so having a valid config.xml should fix it.
I am trying to create an unattended installation of Microsoft Office Standard 2007 with a Volume licence version. What I have done is followed option B. I copied all the files from the source CD to my hard drive, duplicated the XML from the first page and placed it in with the file "setup.exe" and then launched "CMD" and executed "setup.exe /config custom-uA.xml" and basically it just does nothing? Am I not following the instructions correctly?
If i change the 2nd line from Display Level="none" to "full", the setup would launch by will prompt for a key.
Ah, thanks for the info, enables me to understand whats happening here.
Basically, when displaylevel was none, your setup was launching, finding an invalid key, & failed silently.
When you changed it to full, you were asked for a key, to be able to proceed.
So therefore, you havent done anything wrong, its working as expected - the only hitch is, you forgot the part where I say replace this with your own, actual key.
So just insert your key (without the dashes, according to example shown in Option-B ) and it should work.
