    ORK and Office11 Deployment from Active Directory

    I am attempting to deploy Volume Edition Office 2003 from AD and I have discovered the ORK (Office Resource Kit) but it is still somewhat unclear about how to embed the license key in to the MST file.

    Has anyone discoverd an easy to use guide to deploying office 2003 with AD?

    Do I need to have the key in each transform file, of PowerPoint and the each of the other office other apps?

    Do I need to have the entire install CD Rom mapped to a share?

    Do an admin install to a network share (msiexec /a "\\server\folder"). Run ORK and enter the details for how you want your installation (including your volume license key). Save the settings as an mst file. You then call this as a transform to your office msi.

    Thanks Altecsole, I hope I understand this correctly,

    For each of Word, Excel, PP and Access I run
    msiexec /a "\\server\folder and create 4 mst files

    and then continue with normal AD deployment for each of the files.

    Do you have to install each of the programs seperately then? Isn't it a single msi file (eg pro11.msi)?

    No. Run ORK and point it at Pro11.msi. This will present you with a number of screens where you can tailor your installation of Office to suit your needs. Save the resulting .mst file and then use AD to deploy Pro11.msi with your .mst file as your transform. Office should then do a silent install with all the settings you specified.
