OpenOffice 3.0.0 Silent


Recommended Posts

Run the installer but cancel after it extracts the files. Then:

msiexec /i "path\to\installation files\openofficeorg30.msi" /passive

That'll do the basic install, I haven't time to look at removing the registration box, something I never figured out completely with the last version.

I hope the properties are the same for 3.0:


about the registration box, in v2.x (and I'd guess same for 3.0) the registration data is saved in a xml file in %APPDATA%\OpenOffice.orgX\user\registry\data\org\openoffice\Setup.xcu

those 2 properties in there should be interesting:

<node oor:name="Office">
<prop oor:name="ooSetupInstCompleted" oor:type="xs:boolean">
<prop oor:name="FirstStartWizardCompleted" oor:type="xs:boolean">

I did a little research with ORCA editor and this is where I got into:

start /wait msiexec /qn /norestart /i openofficeorg30.msi SELECT_WORD=1 SELECT_EXCEL=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=gm_p_Math,gm_p_Impress,gm_p_Draw,gm_p_Base,gm_o_Quickstart,gm_o_Testtool

not work in v3.0


replace by


That did not work here.

Using SELECT_WORD etc. did work however.

It appears that the feature you can use REMOVE on is in the features-tab of ORCA, I successfully installed using this line:

start "" /wait "openofficeorg30.msi" /passive ALLUSERS=1 SELECT_WORD=0 SELECT_EXCEL=0 SELECT_POWERPOINT=0 ADDLOCAL=ALL REMOVE=gm_o_Quickstart

This removes the quickstarter and sets microsoft office to the default application for its files.

I'm still stuck on dictionaries though, I used to have a SFX for extracting the files to "%ProgramFiles%\OpenOffice.org 2.4\share\dict\ooo\"

That doesn't seem to do the trick anymore.

Apparently, this one should do the trick for extensions.

But the extensions are oxt, and dictionaryes is in .zip

This works for me, using SFX in Winrar

;The comment below contains SFX script commands





Setup=msiexec /qn /norestart /i c:\temp\open\openofficeorg30.msi SELECT_WORD=1 SELECT_EXCEL=1 SELECT_POWERPOINT=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL
