Do we still need to copy the entire directory to install MS Office 2013?
i have it timing out if i dont push the entire directory :-(
This is painful on the network whee we have 200+ computers which require the package and the package is 710MB
Hi Jeff, yes the install files are copied to each target system before the installation begins. The installation is initiated from the ADMIN$ on the target system so all files will need be included with the install.
