UnAttended Installation Of Office 2007 RRS feed

  • Question


    I want to install office 2007 in unattended way. For this purpose I do the stages below

    First way:

    1.        Go to “office2007\setup.exe /admin

    2.        Open office customization tools

    3.        Select product

    ·         Select Microsoft office standard 2007

    4.        Setup – install location and organization name

    ·         Default installation path= [ProgramFilesFolder]\Microsoft Office

    ·         Organization Name=Test

    5.        Licensing and use interface

    ·         product key=Enter product key

    ·         select, I accept the terms in the license agreements

    ·         display level=Basic

    ·         select completion notice and suppress modal

    6.        Then save the changes in office 2007 folder as a MSP files like Test.msp

    7.        Now I start installation with “office2007\setup.exe /adminfile test.msp

    After this stages installation start installation but in the select Microsoft office product inspected to automatically select Microsoft office standard 2007 and continue, but nothing occur until I select it manually and continue.

    Second way:

    1.        I go to office 2007 Folder and then Standard.ww folder

    2.        Then I edit config.xml file as below

    <Configuration Product="Standard">

      <Display Level="Basic" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="no" />

      <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Standard Setup(*).txt" />

      <PIDKEY Value="BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789B" />

      <USERNAME Value="Customer" />

      <COMPANYNAME Value="MyCompany" />

      <INSTALLLOCATION Value="%programfiles%\Microsoft Office" />

      <LIS CACHEACTION="cacheonly" />

      <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Office12" />

      <DistributionPoint Location="\\server\share\Office12" />

      <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" />

      <Setting Id="Reboot" Value="IfNeeded" />

      <Command Path="msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\server\share\my.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" />



    3.        For starting customization installation setup go to run Office2007\setup.exe /config Standard.ww\config.xml

    After this stages I expected to run setup installation but nothing occur.

    Excuse me for bad English.

    So thanks in advance

  • Only uncomment what you need in the config.xml or use a new file.


    <Configuration Product="Standard">

      <Display Level="Basic" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />

      <Logging Type="standard" Path="%temp%" Template="Microsoft Office Standard Setup(*).txt" />

      <PIDKEY Value="your own prod key" />



    Unattened installs can be done on ANY product in the suite by editing the config.xml file for the product or creating a MSP file.
