Default 2007 Silent Install?

I've built an .msp with the OCT, but still keep getting the selection screen
with all the Office products contained on the DVD (I have the volume
edition). When I run setup, this screen appears where I can select Access
2007, Office Standard 2007, etc. When I select Standard, the package is
applied, but how can I create a silent install so the Standard package I
built is installed without having user interaction?

To avoid getting the setup screen that offers all the office products...

Call the config.xml that is in the standard.ww folder during setup..

Example = \\server\share\Office12\setup.exe /config
\\server\share\Office12\Standard.WW\Config.xml /adminfile
\\server\share\Office12\OCTFILE.msp

Default 2007 Silent Install?

Can you tell me which specific product folders I need for Standard, so I
don't have to copy the whole DVD to the share point? I tried just placing
Updates and Standard.ww, added the individual product .ww and -en-us folders
as well as Admin and Catalog, but the install won't start. Why would I need
the Visio and Project folders for Standard setup to run, using such a
specific install command as you gave me?

thx

Also...

It should be noted that if you copy those folders into it's own folder you
will no longer need to use the /config switch as standard will be the only
product to install so it will not ask which product to install.

Thanks for the accurate answer, Eric. For my understanding, can you tell me
the difference between the .ww folders and the en-us folders? Why do I use
the Standard.WW folder, but the product en-us not .ww?

The short answer is that Office 2007 is "language neutral". So the main
office components can be integrated to run with any language..

If you were going to apply a french langauge pack for example you would move
the excel.fr-fr and word.fr-fr etc folders into the root and again run setup
pointing to the language neutral standard and it would then install the base
(standard) in French.

Default 2007 Silent Install?

Eric,

I am having the same issue. My question is though, I have never needed to
edit the XML files and my command line through SCCM: setup.exe /adminfile
XXXX.msp has been working fine until last week. I am unsure what is going
on, but when I manually try this command line without SCCM, I receive the
prompt to choose onenote or office 2007, which has never happened before.
When I choose either, it fails the install and then in the Application logs,
it appears that it is trying to install the word.en-us setup.xml.

also the weird thing is, once this started to fail, my outlook uninstall msp
started to fail, as well as my live meeting and OCS 2007 installs (which are
pushed through GPO) have also started to fail for server authentication.

is there an easier way to fix this without having to edit every xml file for
office pro 2007? i am unsure what the point of making the msp file if i have
to edit the xml files.

Sarah
