Problem with Office 2010 silent install
Folks on this forum were extremely helpful last time I had a DS problem, so I am crossing my fingers again:
I am trying to complete a silent installation of Microsoft Office 2010. I have run the setup.exe /admin and created an .msp file which is in the Updates folder. In Deployment Server 6.9 SP5, I have created a Distibute Software job and navigated to the setup.exe file. In the additional command line switches box, I have entered /adminfile Updates\office.msp. When I drop this job on a computer (Windows 7) it looks like it is working and says "Executing file: setup.exe." The problem is, nothing happens. It will stall at this step for hours if I let it. I have also tried:
running the distribute software job with no switches
running the job with just the /adminfile switch
doing a run script job using command "setup.exe /adminfile Updates\office.msp"
doing a run script job using command "setup.exe /adminfile"
doing a run script job using command "setup.exe"
Nothing ever happens. I look for errors in the event viewer of the machine where I am testing this installation, but I don't see anything. I am sure I am missing something simple, but any tips would be great.
