    Office 2007 GPO deployment via startup scripts - a question

    I'm trying to deploy Office 2007 via SS using the following batch file:

    Code:
    rem @echo  OFF
    REM --- Check for an existing installation of Office 2007
    if exist "c:\20121018Office2007Student.txt" goto _End
    REM --- Deploy to Windows 2000/XP/2003
    ECHO installing Office 2007 Professional
    "\\server\apps\office 2007\setup.exe" /adminfile "\\server\apps\office 2007\deploy\studentOffice.msp"
    copy "\\server\Apps\Office 2007\Deploy\20121018Office2007Student.txt" "c:\20121018Office2007Student.txt" /y
    REM --- End of the script
    :_End
    it works beautifully when launched manually, but when it launches during startup something errors and it gives up. I can't see any errors in the event logs and I'm not sure if Office dump an error log somewhere.

    Any thoughts. Am I just being stupid?

    Thanks

    Does your "\\server" have permissions for local system accounts to connect? Bearing in mind it'll run prelogin, so only system permissions. If not it'll deny access to share etc.

    We had a problem with deploying Office 2010 using a batch file. @sted gave me an answer that worked for me in this thread:

    Link: Office Failing To Install After O/S Deployment [Via WDS] [Sophos was getting in the way]

    This might help you also?
