Hello,

    Is there a command to install Office 2010 where it will bypass the first screen and just start the install?  I'm not looking to enter any key information or user info.  Currently if I run the setup command it will launch but the first screen comes up and you have to click the Install Now button.  I'm trying to figure out if there is a command line option that will bypass that and just install the software.  Thanks for the help.

You need to create a customization file for your setup. This will allow you to set specific options regarding user interface during install (along with all office settings). Running the office setup.exe along with the /admin switch allows you to do this.
setup.exe /admin
More info can be found here:

When you deploy your office installation you use the /adminfile switch (pointing to your customization file).
setup.exe /adminfile \\your_path_to_your_file\CustomizationFile.MSP
