    In order to silently install Visio 2007 you have to create a .MSP file.  To do this run:

    setup.exe /admin

    Run the 'Office custimization tool' and under 'licensing and user interface' set the following properties:

            * enter the product key,
            * tick 'accept license agreement'
            * untick 'completion notice'
            * tick 'suppress modal'

    In your source install folder create a config.xml file.  If this exists and you reference it users will not be prompted.

    Paste the XML below into your config.xml file.

    <Configuration Product="VisPro">

      <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />
      <Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="Never" />


    Your install command should look like this: (where %INSTALLPATH% is your source install folder)

    "%INSTALLPATH%\visio2007\SETUP.EXE" /adminfile "%INSTALLPATH%\visio2007\visio.MSP" /config "%INSTALLPATH%\visio2007\config.xml"

    Your uninstall command should look like this:
    MsiExec.exe /X{90120000-0053-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /qn /norestart

  • This is pretty similar to deploying any other software package through SCCM.

    First, you need to create a package and a program to silently install Visio.  You can look at or the Microsoft documentation to figure out how to do this from the command line (as well as other customization).  A quick google search for "visio 2007 silent install" pulls up this thread which explains in more detail:

    Once you have the package and program ready inside SCCM, create an Advertisement that targets a collection of resources in order to execute the install.

    For an overview of all the Software Deployment concepts, this area of the TechNet documentation should be helpful:

    I hope that helps!
