I'm having a hard time getting PDQ to deploy office 2013 64bit edition to computers with office 2010 32bit edition.
It will copy the files needed but it won't install at all. The deployment will keep running but nothing is really happening. After 30 minutes I give up and abort it. I have made sure that all GUI was suppressed.
One thing I tried to do was to manually try the setup on the test computer. Found out as soon as I run my script "setup /adminfile custom.msp" I get the error "can't install 64bit office while having office 32bit". Well that might explain why it keeps running indefinitely with PDQ.
Then I tried to not suppress the GUI so I can see the deployment while logged into the computer PDQ is pushing to. I still didn't see the GUI? I thought it would show it?
I'm kind of at a standstill. Installs work without prior office 2010 32bit on it. I got it to work once with an office 2010 32bit but that was random and after running some office scrub vbs file.
