MS OFfice 2010 deployment - upgrades using KBOX

Hi, we own a system management device called the KBOX by KACE... or dell now. But I am trying to figure out how to use it to deploy the Office 2010 Standard Software package.

It allows you to upload a zip of the files... then it downloads the zip to the computers.  

Next it executes a command line. I have tried every command line i could possible try and cant get it to work.

Does anybody else have experience doing this? Or possible can suggest another way other than GPO ?

command lines used:

setup.exe
setup.exe /adminfile custom.msp
setup.exe /adminfile custom.msp /config Standard.WW\config.xml

doesnt work...  I see the download, i see it extract... and thats as far as I get

i figured it out


1) setup.exe /admin <this will launch the tool to create your .msp file
2) save your .msp file to the Updates folder
3) Make sure you zip all of the files themselves, not the folder.
4) Installation Command - Configure Manually

Here is the command: "setup.exe" /adminfile "Updates\ourfile.msp"
