Help Configuring the config.xml for GP deployment of Office 2007 Standard

Posted on 2009-04-02
Last Modified: 2013-12-12
I am just looking for someone to look at my config for Office 2007 and tell me if I have it anywhere remotely close.  I am not using this for Mass deployment but for initial setup of computers so this is the best option for me since it give me the ability to remove it later or make changes etc etc.  SCCM is costly and I dont see us going that route.   I have a script that I created but that doesnt give me the ability to remove it as easy.  

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Guess no one deploys this via GP and Active Directory.  Will close it.
