Don't know if this is the right place to post this but what the hey if i ain't feel free to move it
Got a problem... i know you guys can help
I have Office XP (Retail ) and I want to create an unattended install
1) I know as this is a retail version I can not create an Administrative Install Point.
2) And I can't use an MST file...
I can however put the pidkey into the setup.ini file... all i need to know now is there a way to do an unattended install with this? I would like to customize the install also.. (ie get rid of that sodding paper clip... or dog or wizard who keep popping up offering to help me write a ransom note or at time suicide note (especailly with my current annoying position....)
Anyhelp much appreciated! If you need anymore info let me know,
It's just a case of editing the setup.ini file. I believe there was a tool in the Office XP resource kit for doing it. A quick search for setup.ini on Office Online should turn up something.
Seems like more effort than it's worth given that you're only going to install it once though...
I'm in a similar situation with Office 2003. I wrote a script that started the installer, and passes the PID to the installer. I then just have to press enter a few times to install Office. Not a solution for a larger network, but speeds up installing software on my machine after a format.
