simple question: Office 2000 via GPO

Post by Cary Shult » Thu, 26 Jun 2003 23:39:17



As the subject states, this should hopefully be a simple
question.

Situation:  Installing Office 2000 via Group Policy ( also
via \\server\share\setup.exe
TRANSFORMS=\\server\share\abc.mst run from WIN98 & WINNT
Clients' command prompt ).  I am pretty familiar with the
Office 2000 Resource Kit and have made a whole lot of use
of the Custom Installation Wizzard for creating the .mst
files.

Problem: need to create an "MS Office 2000" program folder
and place shortcuts to Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint
in this "MS Office 2000" folder.  This folder would be
visable when you hit the START button...you normally see
Run through Programs...then there is that "line".  I would
like this MS Office 2000 "Program Folder" to be located
directly above that line.  I would then like - via the
Custom Installation Wizzard - to be able to hit ADD and
then place the shortcuts in that MS Office 2000 program
folder.  I do not know how to create it so that it is an
option when using the Custom Installation Wizzard.....

Thank you,

Cary

Yo!

Nevermind!  It was far easier than I thought.  You
simply "create" a new l o c a t i o n by adding <start>\MS
Office 2000 and then simply adding the shortcuts for each
of the MS Office applications....

Too simple.  Sorry for the unnecessary post.

1. Office 2000 Install via GPO - MST not working!

Hello,

    I setup Office 2000 to install via a GPO in my Windows 2000 domain.
While the software successfully installs, not all of the components I
specified in the MST file (such as spell check) are installed when Office is
installed.  Often the user gets the prompt that the component isn't
installed and that it will be installed, which it does just fine.  My
question is why didn't it do that in the first place since I had specified
that in the MST file?

Any clues?
