I am trying to setup out Office 2010 install package with the customisation tool.  What I am trying to do is setup the quick launch for windows 7, and therefore pin Outlook / Word and excel to the taskbar and also pin Word / Excel and Powerpoint to the start menu.  Has anyone managed to do this just from the tool.  I have got a script that will set this up but I am struggling to get this to run within the tool or during the install via group policy.

    Thanks for this,  I did find this but the system I have been testing this one will not run the VB script as part of the install package or load up the batch file which would call this.  I was hopping some had tried to do the same and had come up with a workaround to get this to work every time.
