  1. This helps like you wouldn't believe. Thankyou very much! Also, you are right in your assumptions.
  2. I'm having a bit of a hard time with trying to create an unattended setup for my company over the network. The basic plan is to use the MS Business Desktop Deployment Solution Accelerator as the backbone. I'm not concerned about the Windows portion of the unattended installtion but rather with Office 2003. My company has an OEM copy of Office 2k3 Professional for each computer. There is no volume licence key for us. I have one copy of Office 2k3 Pro Enterprise Edition from an MSDN subscription with key, which is used to make the Administrative Installation Point on the server. Now, this is all fine and dandy, but when making the install point the setup asks for a product key (a volume licence one of course) that will be used for all installations of Office. The problem is that the OEM versions of Office each computer has needs to be activated (the key given with the MSDN enterprise version also asks for activation still). So! Here's what I'm asking. Is there any way, over the network (preferred, but alternatives may have to be chosen) or off a CD to create an unattended installtion (besides entering the unique OEM key) of Office 2k3 with customized (important!) settings with the tools/versions I have available to me right now? I cannot for the life of me find a definite answer on any website or from Microsoft. I know this is a complicated scenario but any help is appreciated.
