    simply saving the exe file and then extracting to a folder works as well. Just a bit neater than having to install it and find the files. ;)

    Before you get ahead of yourself, Office 2007 SP2 now includes this functionality without installing any plugins. Deploy SP2 via WSUS or Microsoft Updates and you're golden.
