    Group Policy - Deploy Office 2010

    Just a quick question, as i will have to do this soon, for approx 100+ PC's.

    As anyone managed to deploy Office 2010 via GP? without hassle? all the threads i have found seem to require multiple reg tweaks, templates and all manners of fuss i really would rather not bother with and just image them if that was easier.

    If you have, do you have the steps you took?

    Thanks in advance

    Ben.

    Honestly, don't.

    There are known issues with certain modules of Office 2010 failing to install, even when manually installing. Citations and Bibliography being a big one.

    @Ben-BSH: also, just since i have done this to the links above about 3 months ago, seriously, unless you want added grief, use a MAK Key and not a KMS Key if you have any option with that number of PCs, i have 110 stations. I tryed KMS thinking, it will be "Easier", attualy its more hassle. Probably though just inexperience of using them, completely my fault, BUT at the same time you get 500 activations with MS anyway
