I am trying to deploy a custom Office 2007 install.
I have created the .MSP file and saved it to the updates folder.
However when I try the following:-
 \\server\Microsoft Office 2007\setup.exe /adminfile\\server\Microsoft Office 2007\Updates\custom.MSP
I just get the Set up controller command line help. It is as if it doesn't recognise the command.
The MSP is set to a silent install with the check boxes unchecked for notifications etc

Hi

A couple of quick things spring to mind here:

 I can see the command you've pasted there is no space between /adminfile and \\server\Microsoft Office 2007\Updates\custom.MSP, looking at the technet guidelines for the Office 2007 installer (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc178956.aspx) there should be, not sure if this is just a typo/copy/paste error when posting but thought I'd mention it in case.

The second thing I've noticed is your path has spaces in it so you will need to include it quotes for windows to not see "\\server\Microsoft", "Office" and "2007\Updates\custom.MSP" as seperate parameters.

Hope this helps

Sorry that last post should say "include it in quotes" rather than "include it quotes" :)

Also both the the path to installer and the adminfile parameter part should also be in quotes to be safe, so:

"\\server\Microsoft Office 2007\setup.exe" /adminfile "\\server\Microsoft Office 2007\Updates\custom.MSP"
