Have anyone done that?  How easy is it to push Office 2010 via GPO not touching the PC?    It is possible to push Word,Excel,PP only?  And then push Outlook and configure a profile remotely?

Please advice.

    How are you doing?

    This is actually A LOT easier than it was with office 2000/xp/2003. A great step-by-step article is here:

    The above shows you everything you want. In step 4 (and the picture below it) shows the apps, so you can check just Word, Excel, PP, as you requested. The others, select them not to install (they will be grayed out), others, like Excel, you can install "everything" so that add-on packs will be there for the user, so that if they need these, later they don't have to ask you for the disk or access to them to install them.

    Other GPO FAQ's can be viewed here:

    Not sure of the size of this push (just a few users or hundreds?)? This page talks about the OCT and GPO, but since you seem to want GPO, this is probably the way to go.

    Finally, read this if you want more options:

    At the bottom, you can click the "right link" to go to Deploying per-user Office extensions via an MSI installer and then keep clicking the right link to go through all the pages, there are like 6 or 7. Here you will learn how to deploy per user, per computer, advanced settings (your outlook question), etc.

    Hope this helps,
