Office 2007

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am just getting started using WPI. It's a great application! Thank you for creating WPI.

Well, my question is: Is there a silent install switch for office 2007? If so, what would it be?

Also, what would my command line be in WPI for such an install?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

SM

Milo,

In a simple answer, no there is not. This has nothing to do with WPI, but with Office 2007 installation. My suggestion is to go to the following page and understand how the Office Customization Tool (OCT) works. OTC alters the way Setup installs and configures office on the target computer.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179132.aspx

Once you create your custom "answer file" you can then use WPI to execute Setup. Here is my code for executing my Office setup from WPI.

"%wpipath%\Install\Office 2007 Professional Plus w SP1\setup.exe"

I install all of my applications from a network installation source through WPI. This method allows updates and software additions without changing your OS installation source, be it an unattended CD\DVD, Ghost image or RIS, you will always have the most current software being installed.

If you want to install from the network, create your administrative share for Office 2007 by following the instructions here:

And to run WPI from a network share look here:

I hope this will get you going in the right direction.

Cheers.

i use

setup.exe /adminfile Sp1.MSP in bat file and run it

ofc u need to use setup /admin to make this file

This method is not working for me. Mine fails immediately, even though when I run the same batch file from the command prompt it works just fine. Any idea what I could be doing wrong? Can you share your entire batch file so I can compare it with mine? I tried slimming my batch down to this:

@ECHO OFF
start /wait setup.exe /adminfile silent_install.msp

And it still didn't work, albeit with a different error message (something like install programs from the Control panel, etc).
