Microsoft Office 2010 silent deploy doesn't install the Proofing tools.

I have created a deployment for Microsoft office 2010, the package deploys and complete's successfully but for some reason the proofing tools are not getting installed.  So, when the user goes into Word >> Options >> Languages it shows english proofing tools "not Installed."  I checked my other test deploy computers and all have the same results.  To make sure there was not a problem with my install I uninstalled Office 2010 from one of the computers and manually deployed Office from my software repository, it installed successfully with the proofing tools.  I must be missing something with my customization file, or the language pack is not getting downloaded and installed during the PDQ deploy process.  

 

I am hoping someone has already encountered this problem and has a simple solution. 

Thank you 

Richie.

  • Hi Richie, are you using the OCT for the deployment?

  • Yes, I created a custom MSP file using OCT.

  • Will you send the MSP file to support@adminarsenal.com. I'll review it and see if anything is standing out. Is this for 32 or 64 bit systems?

  • 32 bit systems,

  • I may have found the problem.  Under Office Shared Featured in the MSP file, spelling and Grammar checker was disabled from Installing.  I will enable it and try again.  Let me know if you see anything else I may have missed.

  • A quick view of your MSP looks good. I would enable (as you mentioned above) the entire English proofing tools subsection. It shouldn't take up a lot of disk space. Please post if you were able to get it working.

  • That did the trick, go figure you need to tell it to install.  Thank you.
