Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007 MSI Installation
Ok quick question, Ive been trying now for about a week to deploy Office Pro Plus Via MSI. Having spent nearly 2 days trying to find out how to get the software installed using the correct MSI off the CD () I now have office install! Hurray!
However having tested the application it needs the CD key inserting on each machine, this just won't do! I contacted a colleague of mine at another school and he tells me I need to edit the config.xml file and sent me a very useful link:
Config.xml file in the 2007 Office system
Now i've edited this file inserting the CD key and hoped it would all be sorted, however it still asks for the key! The original MSI is copied from the CD (the whole cd contents) and placed in a shared area on are server (the cd as it came). The MSI is a file called ProPlusWW.msi ( this took me a while to find as theres several MSI's on the disk) the config.xml file sits in the same folder as the MSI, Ive also tried i copy the config.xml file to the root setup folder!
has anyone got any ideas why this wouldn't be picking up its settings from this file!! I will be happy to paste in the file if anyone needs to see it minus the key of course!!
