Office 2010 Language Pack Deployment
I'm having an issue when trying to deploy Office 2010 language pack. The idea is that I can create an install.bat file for each language I want to create that points to a separate admin file to install the office suite and language pack needed (even if there is no language pack needed).
The only problem is that I need to tell the location of the language pack's setup file. If I do the whole path C:\etc\etc\etc, it works fine, but since I'll be zipping this up and uploading it into KACE or moving around on jump drives I need it to simply be able to find the setup file.
Here is the picture of the prompt that I'm talking about:
As you can see above I'm currently trying out different paths. I learned that .\ and other attempts along those lines fails. Here's the error it returns:
I was hoping someone out there would know a "Pre-defined Token" that would basically just mean "The folder I'm being launched from." Some examples include [InstallationLocation], [SystemFolder], [WindowsFolder], [CommonFilesFolder], but I haven't been able to get that to cooperate. I'm going to try \\Language Pack and see if I can get that to work. But in the mean time I'd like to hear what the IT guru's here think.
I'm really hoping to get this to work as if I can make this run, I can setup installs for all of our remote offices only using a single install of office 2010 and language packs. Thanks!
Rather than using the Office Admin Tool to add the language pack to the .MSP file it was a simple matter of adding the language pack executable to the install.bat file. Using the config files in the OMUI folders for the languages I want.
