Dear all,

Is there any way to install office97 unattended like windows98, in which we create a inf file.
I try myself by ammending the .stf, .inf and .lst file, but this does work in network installation. I dont want shared installation. I have 250 machines and I want that i just install office97 by batch file.

If you get the Office97 Admin Kit it has a batch file creator in it that allows you to make auto install scripts, but personally I use Wincompare.  Office works great with Wincompare.  What Wincompare does is monitors an install and sees what changes, then makes a big EXE that includes all those changes so when you run it on another PC it will make the same changes (ie. install the proper files, update the registry, etc.).  Works great on SMS rollouts.
