    Editing the config.xml to install office with no UI

    Hi i've sorted my Config.xml file so that i can deploy Office 2007 succesfully, the only issue i am having is that when it installs its showing me an office dialog box when installing. I have listed the contents of my config file below if anyone can spot what i'm doing wrong. I'm quite new to all this so its might be something obvious i have missed.

    Thanks for your help.

    <Configuration Product="Enterprise">

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

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

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

    <USERNAME Value="NHS" />

    <COMPANYNAME Value="Notley High School" />

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

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

    <!-- <SOURCELIST Value="\\server1\share\Office12;\\server2\share\Of fice12" /> -->

    <!-- <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" /> -->

    </Configuration>

    I found an example of a xml file that worked well for me, its takes out all the stuff you don't really need and forces the install of all the common apps and addin's. It mite not be exactly what you want but hope it helps:

    Configuration Product="Pro">

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

    <PIDKEY Value="*****************************" />
    <USERNAME Value="0wner" />
    <COMPANYNAME Value="Ashford School" />


    <OptionState Id="ACCESSFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //access
    <OptionState Id="OUTLOOKFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //outlook
    <OptionState Id="EXCELFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //excel
    <OptionState Id="PubPrimary" State="local" Children="force" /> //publisher
    <OptionState Id="PPTFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //Powerpoint
    <OptionState Id="AceRepl" State="local" Children="force" /> //access db Engine replication
    <OptionState Id="CAGFiles" State="Local" Children="force" /> //Clip Organizer
    <OptionState Id="MSSOAP3" State="local" Children="force" /> //SOAP toolkit
    <OptionState Id="WISPFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //handwriting
    <OptionState Id="DocServicesFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //docu update util
    <OptionState Id="HTMLSourceEditing" State="local" Children="force" /> //script editor
    <OptionState Id="DocumentImagingUtils" State="local" Children="force" /> //scanning,ocr,indexing
    <OptionState Id="OISFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //picture manager
    <OptionState Id="OSESupp" State="local" Children="force" /> //sharepoint support
    <OptionState Id="QueryFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //msQuery
    <OptionState Id="VisioPreviewerFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //visio viewer
    <OptionState Id="XDOCSFiles" State="local" Children="force" /> //infopath

    <OptionState Id="OsaNonBoot" State="absent" Children="force" /> //new,open office docu lnks
    </Configuration>

    The config.xml works really well for 2007, but has anyone tried it with 2010 yet? I can't get mine to work - the error mentions that there is nothing selected and too many products to chose from:

    Error: No product has been selected, and more than one product is available Type: 86::TooManyProducts.

    Clearly they have changed something but the Technet articles haven't been of much use.
