Software Deployment Question


Packaging MS Office viewers for deployment with SCCM 2012 - Word, powerpoint, excel, visio...

06/19/2013 10946 views

Can the MS Office viewers be packaged as EXE files or do I need to extract them to MSI format? If yes do they all require the same switches for successful deployment with SCCM 2012? Will .EXE /quiet work? any other switches required? Thanks in advance.

  • Typically any re-distributable is packed as an MSI especially if you will be using SCCM as your deployment method.

    Take a look at that link typically if you want a silent install an MSI will work much better than an EXE. You may also need an MSI repackager to capture the permissions etc. There are many of them out there. We use MSI Studio.

I extracted the msi files for each viewer and I created a VBScript in order to install them in silent mode and I add the content to the SCCM 2012. Is working perfect.
