Office 2010 Upgrade using MSP

I have created the MSP file and left it in the Updates folder on the network install directory.  I have also created the stratup script for the GPO, but the install never launches.  I believe I am missing something in the script.  Here is the commands in the script:

set ProductName=Office14.Standard
set DeployServer=\\exchange07\office10
set ConfigFile=\\exchange07\office10\Standard.WW\config.xml
set LogLocation=\\exchange07\Office2010LogFiles

I have also modified the config.xml file.

I used the walkthru from this link:

If you have your MSP file in the updates folder, why not have setup.exe launch from your login script. You have have it run silently if you would like.

If there is one MSP file in the updates folder, Office will automatically select that one. This is what our installation batch file looks like:

 
IF EXIST "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office2010Installed.txt" goto INSTALLED

if exist "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office" GOTO COPYFLAG
mkdir "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office"

:COPYFLAG

copy \\Apps\Office2010\Office2010Installed.txt "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office2010Installed.txt"

\\Apps\Office2010\setup.exe /adminfile \\Apps\Office2010\Updates\Office2010.msp
shutdown -r -t: 60 /c "Office 2010 Installation - Your PC will be rebooting in 60 seconds"

:INSTALLED

exit

Open in new window
