Office 2010 install over the network

This question is not answered

Not sure where my earlier post went, probably fat-fingered it when posting, but I have an Office 2010 Standard install that I am trying to install over the network via Kaseya.  The idea is to do the install without having to first copy files to each computer.

I created a MSP file using the Microsoft Office Customization Tool (very useful btw) and have been attempting to start the install from a kaseya script calling the setup exe.  This should make the scripting minimal.  What I have at this point is an impersonation then a command line to call the install "\\ourserver\Office2010\setup.exe /adminfile \\ourserver\Office2010\updates\1-office2k10Silent.msp".  When I run the script nothing appears to happen.  If I click on the computer's 'blue circle" and go to the command shell and enter the command I get "Access Denied".

If I VNC into the computer and run this command directly it works.  Does anyone have an idea on how to get this working?

BTW, I have tried various impersonations, my account which is an admin account, the kaseya account into the machine, and even the local Administrator account (which I didn't expect to work).  It seems like a permissions issue but the accounts used for impersonations are good.

Below is the script:

  • Hi

    if you do command prompt via live connect that will be running as system user so will not have access to the network share.

    I had a problem doing this and after ages of testing and playing around I simply recreated my MSP file to a different name and then ran it without issue.

    Can you log into the machine and open a command prompt as that impersonated user (Run As) can you run the setup.exe with the /adminfile then

    If you take the /adminfile out of the command and run it does setup.exe start up on the machine.

    Also have you tried Execute file and then put in parameters
