Install Office 2003 through a script?
Posted on 2006-11-07
I'm fairly familiar with scripting, however, this one is a challenge for me. I have to install Office 2003 to about 200 machines. None of the machines currently have Office 2003. What's the easiest way (if possible) I can put together a script that will automatically initiate and push out and install to the users as they logon to the network?
I would like to be able to do this through a script and wait a couple days then go back and check to see which few PC's were missed and just do those manually (User gone on vacation, etc.) Obviously, it needs to be designed to check the registry for the version currently installed first. If version 11.0 (Office 2003) exists, then null, else run script basically.
I''m really hoping someone has a template or something similiar already put together that we can just modify and work off of. I already tried searching and had no luck.
Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!
