is this on a network or a standalone pc?

on a network you first got to do an admin install on a server and on prompt enter the product key from that machine run the custom install wizard to install XP onto the hard disk of a workstation in the network (silent or manual)

Thanx bruintje, but that's not it. First of all it's office 2000, second it's not an admin install, but a msi install, so I want to deploy trough ris or gpo's....

buddholeAuthor Commented:
ris=remote installation server
gpo=group policy object,

but that doesn't matter, I've created an msi package for office and it the same folder there's a setup.ini.
It looks like this:

blbla

[options]
;username=
PIDKEY=727hhnc9j9euje9iededk

And it doesn't work...

sorry but i'm out of options, other then using the install wizard and making a msi with entering the proper organisation and product key stuff.....

since that's not your problem or i'm missing something i would advise to place 0 point question in OS parts of this site with a pointer to this question
