    The lab using SMS 2003 to deploy Microsoft office 2007 doesn't work.


    In exercise 2, part a.  i get an error message  setup unable to proceed due to the following errors.


    computer has to be running at least Windows SP2 and server must be on 2003 sp1.

  • Hey JM,


    For that step you need to run Setup.exe with the /admin switch.


    Do the following...

    1. Open a command prompt by clicking Start | Run.
    2. In the Run dialog, type cmd and click OK.
    3. In the command prompt, cd C:\Office 2007
    4. In the command prompt, setup.exe /admin

    It takes about 10 seconds for the app to come up.


    Let me know if this helps.

  • I also wanted to point out that, when you get to Exercise 5, the installation happens silently. 

    You might not see the countdown mentioned in the notes.


    You'll see that its been installed under Program Files, though.
