  • I'll wager you're trying to install MS Office 2007 or higher using the MSIs/MSPs. You cannot. You have to use SETUP.EXE.

    Just this once, I am going to resist the temptation to post a LMGTFY link for "MSIExec command line switches" but seriously...
    • Thanks for the reply - I got it figured out using microsoft own commands.

The correct syntax for an Office custom install is: start /wait setup.exe /adminfile xxx.msp
