How to create a silent installation of Microsoft office 2010 Professional?

Hello:

I am looking for a way to install Microsoft Office 2010 ProPlus silently on the a PC.  In the past we have always just taken a couple of CD's and then manually installed/Upgraded Microsoft Office Applications going desk to desk.

It worked; but, I would like to find a more efficient way of updating our computers.  I tried out the instructions that I read in a technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd630736 ; but, i was unsuccessful.

1.  I copied the instaltion files from a CD to a computer and shared the folder.

2.  I opened a command prompt and I typed(without quotes) "\\sal002570\Office2010\setup.exe /config \\sal002570\Office2010\ProPlus.WW\confix.xml"

3.  I did change the config.xml file to have the following commad: <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

4.  I tried this on a Windows 7 Professional PC.

5.  After I execute the command line above, I just see the PC trying do something (pausing/hourglass) for 2 seconds and then it quits.

If anyone has a better way of setting up a silent installation of Microsoft 2010, I would be willing to try it out.   Or another way of updating PC's besides manually clicking through an installation.

Here is more detailed instructions for deploy with config.xml.

We prepared Office instalation with Office Customization Tool.
