Deploying Microsoft Office 2010 Professional




  • Steve

    Disregard my last. I switched the package to "Run as local system" and it worked.

    NOTE:  I have been corresponding with Brandon at Admin Arsenal

    We have approx. 210 computers running Win 7 and XP that have to be upgraded to Office Pro 2010.

    I have attempted using PDQ Deploy.

    STATUS:  I get multiple errors.  (See "ErrorCode-PrintScreen")

    "Step1-ScreenPrint" Shows my Step 1 settings

    The "custom-office.MSP" is the file I'm using.


    Can someone look at my MSP please?

    Can you go to one of the machines and run the setup.exe from the UNC path with the /adminfile custom-office.msp and tell me if it installs without any errors?

    Hi Ken, 

    Sorry to hear you're having issues with this. 

    I too had issues with the MSP for 2010, but had no problems with 2013. 

    I had to use the XML version of the deployment in order to pdq deploy correctly. 

    If you're in a hurry to get office deployed, you can try to use my method. 

    I used a batch file with the following in PDQ Deploy. 

    ---------------------Start of Batch file codes------------

    "\SERVERNAME\sccm\software_package\office 2010 Pro Plus 64 bit\setup" /config "\SERVERNAME\sccm\software_package\office 2010 pro plus 64 bit\proplus.ww\config.xml"

    cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act

    ------------------------------ End of code--------------------

    The above commands is 2 lines only. The cscript has its own line (activates the product).

    The first line uses a UNC path to call the setup program, which calls upon a config file. This config file will need to be modified and is there in the above directory by default. You just need to edit it in notepad. Open the config.xml file in your install folder (proplus.ww) and enter the following lines. 

    The lines in BOLD is where you'll need to modify or remove if desired. 

    ---------------------- Start of Config.XML------------------

    <Configuration Product="ProPlus">

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


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

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

    <OptionState Id="GrooveFiles" State="local" Children="force" />

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

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

    <OptionState Id="XDOCSFiles" State="local" Children="force" />

    <Setting Id="AUTO\_ACTIVATE" Value="1" />

    <Command Path="\\SERVERNAME\sccm\Software\_Package\Office 2010 Pro Plus 64 bit\activateoffice2010.bat" QuietArg="/quiet" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" />

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

    <!-- <USERNAME Value="Customer" /> -->

    <!-- <COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" /> -->

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

    <!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->

    <!-- <LIS SOURCELIST="\\server1\share\Office;\\server2\share\Office" /> -->

    <!-- <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office" /> -->

    <!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

    <!-- <Setting Id="SETUP\_REBOOT" Value="IfNeeded" /> -->

    <!-- <Command Path="%windir%\system32\msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" /> -->


    --------- end of Config.XML--------------

    This works for upgrades, as well as fresh installs. And the above is for MAK licensing. 


    If you need further help, let me know.

    UPDATE:  I successfully **manually **loaded the above attached .MSP file.  So, I assume this file is correct.

    However, I just retried pushing the file to to XP Boxes and I received ERROR CODE 2203 for both.

    Any ideas?

    I too am having an issue when trying to install 2010 Standard. I have double and triple checked all of my settings and ideas you guys have thrown out there and no luck. I have used many other programs no issues but this one is fighting me. Any additional help I would appreciate.
