I have licensing for 4 versions of MS Office.  I need to use all versions.  
To make it easier to handle the licenses, How do I do a background installation of MS Office on users machines within my network?  

I am assuming via group policy using security groups somehow.

Hello there,

Yes you can do this via Group Policy. I would recommend creating a script for the automated install (installed programs, featrues etc) then using Group Policy with Security Filtering to install this on specific machines. This will be a computer based policy.

Spec01 - Thank-you for sending the links.  Unfortunately those are for Office 365 and Office 2013.  
I am using MS Office 2003, MS Office 2010, MS Office 2013.
My AD is Server 2000.

Any other thoughts on how to do this?
