Installing Office 2003

  • can some one show me a step by step instuction on installing office over a network?

    i have tried it with the kaseya packager, this works but the issue is that if the user is not a local admin on the pc, office will say that setup needs to be run on this user when running word

    do we use msi's? if so can you show how?

  • You need to copy the Office 2003 Volume License edition to a network share, then run the Office Resource Kit tools to create a custom transform file (MST). Then you write your script to reference the location of the network install and run the setup.exe file while referencing the MST. THe exact command line is shown to you when you complete the creation of the transform file. I have a directory o9n all cusotmer sites where the structure is identical. The directory is referenced as a global variabble so I can have one script that works for all customers.



    Have fun!
