    Updates

    Is it possible to somehow without repackaging with thirdparty software to actually intergrate all the current Microsoft Office 2007 updates, instead of just copying the updates to the update folder. It would take too long to deploy on our network (defo the laptops), having it all intergated would take a lot less time.

    already had complaints, just for updating, java, flash, shockwave, foxit reader which are small programes


    or would you say just get office 2007 on computer at the time run we upgrade to windows 7 or would use say that there is a way or just too much diffrence at software at once?

    thanks in advance

    Have you looked at WSUS?

    You can deploy updates to office along with all other windows updates

    Unfortunately no, this is by design by Microsoft. You can't slipstream updates or service packs as you could with Office 2003. I agree that Office 2007 is a large application, so your best bet would be to include it directly when you re-image machines. Much quicker this way
