I'm running into an issue while trying to deploy office 2007 on a test machine. I'm deploying via a web share, using a standard download from source push without any specail bandwidth options. If there is no previous version of office installed, 2007 installs without issue and the task completes successfully. If I install, say 2003, on the test machine, and then try to deploy 2007 I run into a strange issue: the previous version is uninstalled and 2007 installs ok, but then the machine reboots and the task comes back as a failure with this message: "The requested operation completed successfully. The system will be restarted so the changes can take effect." This happens wether I have "reboot if necessary" checked off in the delivery method, or "never reboot". The install itself seems fine, I can launch all office programs without issue. I just want to avoid this error so when I have to deploy it to our users I'll know for sure it installed ok. I'd also like to be able to supress the reboot after install.
I have 8.7 sp4. Any ideas?
