Trying to do an admin install of office 2000. When i type d:\setup.exe /a it automatically creates the admin install on the root of the C drive. I dont want it to do that i want to pick the location where it installs. How can i specify the location?

ive tried d:\setup.exe /a "location" but that doesnt work.

As U explained U hav tried with /A switch

1) Give the path of Ur disc into Run Dialog Box such as

G:\Setup.exe /A

2) Perform the Installtion Instruction (Fill the Name, Org, Product Key, Location for Installtion Source like C:\Office2000 etc....) and proceed next.

3) After the complete the installtion Process. goto C:\Office2000 and run setup.exe(make the ISO or DISC for backup)

4) the whole process going Unatteded and perform Admin installation to Ur desired location.

I'm sorry to resurrect such an old thread, I know it's terrible form, but I'm fighting with this very issue now.

I've tried running setup.exe /a (as well as /A, with the uppercase a) and I get a "Preparing to install Office 2000" window, which stays up for a few minutes and then closes with a "Setup completed successfully" window. I can see no evidence of it creating another directory on the HDD to serve as an administrative install point and I am never prompted for any options.

I did try running the Custom Install Wizard once before and there's an MST file in the directory. Do I need to delete this? Is there anything else I need to do in order to revert to a "clean" source? This is running from a folder "O2KSB" which contains the files on the Office 2000 Small Business install CD, as well as the install files for SP2 and SP3.

I am extremely frustrated, I will admit that. I am not thinking clearly. I have been interrupted here at the office 12 times since I started trying to figure this out so it's a mess in my head.

What am I doing wrong? Thank you and, again, I apologize for bringing back such an ancient thread. I figured it was better than spamming a new one.
