Hey guys,

I have Office Professional Plus and i have my config.xml file all done, i have been fiddling around trying to get it to install from my vista dvd...

<RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
<Order>3</Order>
<Path>cmd /c %AppsRoot%\Install\Microsoft\OfficePro\setup.exe /config %AppsRoot%\Install\Microsoft\OfficePro\Pror.WW\config.xml</Path>
<Description>Installing Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Plus Please Wait...</Description>
</RunSynchronousCommand>

Right now, I am running or rather attempting to run setup from <settings pass="auditUser"> since that is when i install all of my other applications. (unless i should install them all during <settings pass="oobeSystem">..... please let me know)

Here is my Office Pro Plus Configuration file...

<Configuration Product="Pror">

<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />

<Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Professional Setup(*).txt" />

<PIDKEY Value="PRODUCT ID HERE" />

<USERNAME Value="William Johnson" />

<COMPANYNAME Value="The Windows Blog" />

<INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" />

<LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" />

<OptionState Id="ACCESSFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="EXCELFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="OUTLOOKFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="PPTFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="PubPrimary" State="absent" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="RosebudMSIFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="WORDFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="SHAREDFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />

<OptionState Id="TOOLSFiles" State="Local" Children="force" />

<Setting Id="Reboot" Value="IfNeeded" />

</Configuration>

Thanks in advance for your help....

You cannot reduce the size of the installation folder for either version of Office.

extract the setup and place the msp files inside the update folder on your Office CD. While installing Office 2007 the updates are applied

thats not slipstreaming :rolleyes:

I have no idea why Microsoft does not support slipstreaming anymore. But maybe there is a way still ?

Bye,

Noob here (be gentle, I'm learning on the fly)...following is an exact replica of the orig config.xml, modified for an unattended install with corresponding changes on first line, "reboot" line, user, company, and key (not shown of course). Figure if I could get this to work, the rest should follow. I know this install/key works because I installed office on my host Vista computer. I copied the Office CD contents to the XP Pro guest drive image (using virtualbox) and placed the modified xml file in same folder as setup.exe. Then ran the command line.

Office install starts up but immediately asks for the key. Hopefully someone can get me pointed in the right direction...TIA

hi

i want to use arabic langauge pack and how to installl it

very sorry for my very late reply my dear....really I didn`t see your post as such topic needs printing to read each post carefully!!!post are too much !!!!!!

did you download it?

simply double click it>then,start,all programmes,microsoft office,microsoft office tools,microsoft office language 2007settings>chose Arabic in the both tabs ((or as you like))...or u can simply choose (apply Windows language) if u are using Arabic windows....

Not all Office software will be applied....details avalable in the Office Online website...Word,etc will be in Arabic UI ((if wanted so)),but some software will not..

concerning usage,just click F7 to have all features!!!!!and u can use word(,etc)`s above panel to adjust ur settings(if u want urs one instead of the default ones),there a no spesific bottom for it,just merged in the menus...for example you will find related settings under language correction tab((you will see another name,I am using an Arabic UI))

login to Office online >(Microsoft Office System)>and use will see it in the left panel under(more features) item

any question??

just ready 4 u

plz send me an private msg when u post a question for me so that i know you posted one easily

cheers؛)

extract the setup and place the msp files inside the update folder on your Office CD. While installing Office 2007 the updates are applied

I used this procedure with an unattended Office 2K7 Enterprise install. Everything seemed to go normally. When completed, I noticed the version number did not change. So I ran the SP1 exe and the first thing it does is run an update detection. It apparently did not detect SP1 so proceeded to install. When finished the version number did change. I ran the exe again to see if it would detect SP1 - it did and reported SP1 already in place.

So heres the question - will the method above install the SP1 components without registering as an official SP1 update?

It should register properly. did you make sure you cleared out all the .msp files in your /Updates folder except SP1 and your admin .msp file? there is a noticable delay at the end of setup where the progress bar climbs to 100% and stops on 'Applying Updates'. If you did not see that then the .MSP may not be getting applied at the end.

Thx for reply. I found a thread which listed the individual msp files. For some reason my extraction missed a couple. I tried it again and, as you say, the updates installed at the end of the office install. Version updated as well.

Now, if I could only figure out how to merge the unattended office2K7 install with an unattended XP Pro install - one DVD - life would be good.
