    Preferred Method for Installing Office 2007

    Rookie

      What is the preferred method for installing Office 2007 when Microsoft Compatibility Pack or Excel 2007 have already been installed on a system.

       

      Using /adminfile with .MSP only works for the initial install and since the previous apps are installed it will not start.

       

      I have a package that installs Excel 2007 with /adminfile and .MSP but if the compatibility pack is installed it will not start. I have to uninstall the compatibility pack, install Excel 2007, then reinstall the compatibility pack.

       

      To install Office 2007 with the other packages installed I have to uninstall the compatibility pack, uninstall office 2007 to remove Excel, then install Office 2007.

       

      My last test was to use "msiexec /p *.msp /gn" but I have set in the msp to uninstall 2003 but it didn't.

       

      Does any one have any ideas?
