I have been searching and finding all kinds of articles/info on this topic, but there are so many that are conflicting (use SMS or use config.xml or use OCT or use startup scripts or...well you get the point.) So, I figured I would just ask someone here to clear it all up for me.
I would like to deploy Office 2007 via Group Policies, if possible. I have multiple labs that need this installed within a few days before the summer quarter starts at the school. I have created seperate OU's for each lab, since we may have to do one lab at a time due to classroom scheduling.
Also, I have Windows 2003 / AD environment. The clients are Windows XP Pro. Lastly, the clients already have Office 2003 Pro installed manually (by using the CD's.)
My skill level is, I have setup a couple of .msi installs via GPO and a couple of startup scripts before, but I wouldn't call myself a guru, by any means.
Not sure if there is any info I am missing. If so, just let me know.
Thanks for your time and any assistance you can offer.
