Hi, I'm having problems to create a batch file that installs MS Access 2003 in silent mode. The batch file runs where the installation of Access is required but calls SETUP.EXE from a shared anetwork drive.

<Shared Network Drive>\MS Office 2003 Professional\SETUP.EXE TRANSFORMS=Access2003.MST /qn+

Logged as a member of the local PC Administrator's group, I cannot install Access.
Thanks in advance
