    Office 2007 Config.xml

    I was hoping that someone could help me out with running the Config.xml file.
    All I am trying to do is upgrade Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007


    <Configuration Product="Standard">

    <Display Level="None" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />

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

    <PIDKEY Value="*************************" />

    <USERNAME Value="IT Department" />

    <COMPANYNAME Value="Weston Area Health Trust" />

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

    <DistributionPoint Location="\\Wghdeploy\software\Office12" />

    <SOURCELIST Value="\\Wghdeploy\software\Office12" />

    <!-- <LIS CACHEACTION="CacheOnly" /> -->


    <OptionState Id="OUTLOOKFiles" State="local" Children="force"" />

    <OptionState Id="EXCELFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />
    <OptionState Id="PPTFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />
    <OptionState Id="VisioPreviewerFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />
    <OptionState Id="WORDFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />
    <OptionState Id="TOOLSFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />
    <OptionState Id="SHAREDFiles" State="absent" Children="force" />


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

    <Command Path="%WINDIR%\system32\msiexec.exe" Args="/i \\Wghdeploy\software\Office12\Standard.WW\Standard .WW.msi" QuietArg="/q" ChainPosition="after" Execute="install" />

    </Configuration>


    I have noticed that some people have left out the <Command Path=%WINDIR% etc and am confused, as I thought this was the main bit to running the file ?

    When I run the setp file manually it seems to work, but when I run the MSI through GPO it installs everything ?

    Please can someone explain this, as I cant find any help anywhere else on the Internet.

    Cheers

    James

    I didnt put anything in the command path.

    Here is my config, which I used to deploy 2007 via GPO.

    Code:
    <Configuration Product="Enterprise">
    
    	<Display Level="full" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />
    	
    	<Logging Type="standard" Path="\\server\software\Office" Template="Microsoft Office Enterprise Setup(*).txt" />
    	
    	<PIDKEY Value="AABBCDDEERFFDD2QBEERNWEED" />
    
    	<USERNAME Value="User" />
    
    	<COMPANYNAME Value="XX School" />
    	
    	<SOURCELIST Value="\\server\software\office" />
    	
    	<DistributionPoint Location="\\server\software\Office" />
    	
    
    </Configuration>

    Actually, thinking back, I did find that doing it this way didn't upgrade 2003 to 2007, it just added both. I made a batch file to uninstall 2003 first on machine startup, and then install 2007 from the gpo

    Code:
    @echo off
    rem Script to uninstall Office 2003 
    
    msiexec -x {90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} /qn

    I read somewhere that Only Standard Office 2007 would automatically upgrade Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007.

    Enterprise would only install 2007 without removing 2003

    I have just found out that you can not use a Config.xml file to upgrade outlook to 2007

    Deploying Outlook 2007 via Group Policy

    I wish Microsoft would have just kept MST files as then I could have used GPO much easier.

    Back to the drawing board then :-(
