Office 2010 - Adding features with OCT MSP file not working
I am attempting to add Access to already installed copies of Office 2010 ProPlus. The original install was pushed with a Dell K1000 customized (OCT) with it's own MSP file in /updates.
My problem is, I am now trying to add Access with a different MSP file. If I run the new MSP file from the desktop of my test machine everything runs and installs fine. Comparing the install before and after running the MSP I see Access is installed as well as VBA (needed for Access). However, this will need to be scripted in my environment. So I open up command and run msiexec /p custom.msp /qb and the minimal UI goes through the motions just the same as when I double clicked the file. Except no end result, no Access no VBA. Am I missing something?
since you ask, the network install point is a bit diff in the newer versions. when you do an install, from wherever its installed from, it copies all the source to C:\MSOcache
It does the actual install from here, this solved the issue of people doing network installs and not installing all features. (install on firstuse...)
I have never yet used the network install point setting.
Also, DONT put your MSP in the Updates folder. just incase you ever need more than one.... use the setup.exe commandline to point to the correct MSP (and confg file if needed)
