Office 2007, Unattended Setup & Fine-tuning its very easy & simple! Rate Topic:
Posted 14 April 2006 - 10:22 AM
(updated to reflect final RTM version)Unattending or silently installing MS Office System, has now become easier than ever. There are two waysto unattend your setup:--> Option A (use it only if you got Office2007 thru SoftwareAssurance, which comes with activationstripped out).--> Option B is for all the others (retail/OEM/academic/trial/etc). Both are colored differently below.Option A:1. Ensure you have an actual VLK (some call it enterprise/corporate) disc & product-key.2. Notably, o2k7 uses setup patches (*.MSP) for uA, rather than transforms which previous versions used(*.MST). The below instructions will give you an MSP file, which is not accepted by non-corporate versionsof o2k7. If you ignored point1 above, then you will end up wasting 15 minutes of your life which I'm notresponsible for.3. Now at the command prompt, type:
setup.exe /admin

 4. Choose the product for which you want to make a customization-patch.5. Then go through all steps in the customization wizard (to install the reqd apps & remove junk & changedefault settings).6. Be sure to have "completion notice" turned on & "suppress modals" turned off (this is to get to see errors,if any exist). Once you're done with testing, go thru the customization again to modify the MSP to disablecompletion notice & enable suppress modals.7. Save the resulting patch file in the same folder as o2k7 setup files.8. Now just execute this command (thru any method) for silent install:
setup.exe /adminfileCUSTOM.MSP
Or if you have the Office 2007 Enterprise VLK, you could even drop the CUSTOM.MSP file in the "Updates"folder & setup will pick it up automatically (without any switches being used). For this, ensure you have WindowsInstaller 3.1 already installed. You can add in further MSP files (extracted from SP1 update EXE) as well, to have updates applied during install.*** For completely silent install, you MUST set the DisplayLevel to "none", either by MSP (accessible fromstep 6 above) or by xml, otherwise you'll get a confirmation dialog similar to the image shown inattachment below. (do this only AFTER testing, when you're sure it works)(http

Option B:1. Go to the folder-path, "Office2007\Pro.WW" (or any 
folder for other editions such asstandard/enterprise/etc)2. Modify "config.xml", or copy it to somewhere else & modify it, using my posted code below as a sample.3. If you modified it "in location", then setup will take up the changes automatically.4. Otherwise, place the modified file in the same folder of setup.exe, as custom-uA.XML5. This is the command to run setup with the customizations specified in custom-uA.XML:
setup.exe/config custom-uA.XML
7. This method is also a great way to make changes to the defaults itself, so that you dont need to keepchanging it upon every new time you install it. The sample XML here, makes setup fully silent, cuts downfeatures rarely used by me, and reduces install footprint of Office 2007 Professional from 721 MB, to 303MB (of course you can always add/remove components later); I've also removed lines that I found uselessfrom it, you might like to keep many of the default lines & customize them. Also, be aware that the XMLoffers a way to chain updates & install them before or after o2k7 setup, but then you'll lose control overreboot parameters. By default, o2k7 setup wont cause an auto-reboot, so no need of "/noreboot" or"Reboot=ReallySuppress" properties. I intend this XML to be used for clean installs, with no previous version settings or profiles to be migrated. Use "start /wait" for silent installs. This file is for the main suite, you can modify it accordingly for the other component products, the options are commented with double-slashes. I obtained the OptionIds from setup.xml files, in each component folder.Here's a tested/working config.xml file, to get you started with Option B:(you need to put in your own key, and configuration-Product can be obtained from your current xml)<Configuration Product="Pro"><Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" /> <PIDKEY Value="BCDFGHJKMPQRTVWXY2346789B" /><USERNAME Value="0wner" /><COMPANYNAME Value="0wn Inc." /> <OptionState Id="ACCESSFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //access<OptionState Id="OUTLOOKFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //outlook <OptionState Id="PubPrimary" State="absent" Children="force" /> //publisher<OptionState Id="AceRepl" State="absent" Children="force" /> //access db Engine replication<OptionState Id="CAGFiles" State="Local" Children="force" /> //Clip Organizer<OptionState Id="MSSOAP3" State="absent" Children="force" /> //SOAP toolkit<OptionState Id="OsaNonBoot" State="Local" Children="force" /> //new,open office docu lnks<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_1036" State="absent" Children="force" /> //french<OptionState Id="ProofingTools_3082" State="absent" Children="force" /> //spanish<OptionState Id="WISPFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //handwriting<OptionState Id="DocServicesFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //docu update util<OptionState Id="HTMLSourceEditing" State="absent" Children="force" /> //script editor<OptionState Id="DocumentImagingUtils" State="absent" Children="force" /> //scanning,ocr,indexing<OptionState Id="OISFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //picture manager<OptionState Id="OSESupp" State="absent" Children="force" /> //sharepoint support<OptionState Id="QueryFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //msQuery <OptionState Id="VisioPreviewerFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //visio viewer<OptionState Id="XDOCSFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //infopath<!-- These are additionals from Enterprise RTM<OptionState Id="GrooveFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //groove<OptionState Id="OneNoteFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //onenote<OptionState Id="RefIEBarFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //research explorer bar<OptionState Id="WebDriveFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //hosted webs<OptionState Id="VBAFiles" State="absent" Children="force" /> //VB for applications
