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?

For modifying an install, I would not use the MSP.
use the setup.exe /modify ProductName /config "yourgucci.xml"
I find that a lot more reliable. Search any of the forums for the weblink to the Office site to fully explain the options.
