Hi guys,

Since I suceeded in installing my Office 2007 lately :thumbup ,I've been wondering if it's

possible to install Office 2007 Addins, by integrating them into the Office 2007 Setup

or otherwise by installing them differently through a silent switch..

Someone got any experience doing this?

Cheers

I don't with 2007, but I do with 2003...

All of them are msi files (usually the exe can be extracted.)

You can then install them like any other .msi package with your preferred method.

I tend to do them like so from a batch.

cd addondir

start /wait /i addon.msi /qb!- REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS

cd ..

cd nextaddondir

etc

sometimes INSTALLMODE=COMPLETE switch is needed. This is needed if there is a level of installation selection in the normal installation menu sequence (like office tools).

sometimes also there is an mst included for a particular language, so you add the switch TRANSFORMS=1033.mst (ex. for English). This is generally with 3rd party add ons.

occasionally you need also ACCEPTEULA=1 , say for the Visio IFilter addin.

you can install the Word Art Converter addin which uses an .inf with the following command line.

start /wait %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupInfObjectInstallAction DefaultInstall 128 .\pbwrdart.inf

again this is for 2003, but I believe most if not all are the same for 2007.

Cheers

Why don't you make admin install with a mst file then you can put in the serial and remove programs you don't wan't to install
