Office Installs over network

By men ·
Whenever you install Office 2000 on a machine you have the option to do a custom install where you can choose which options to install, which you would like to run off of a cd, and install off of a cd whenever the option is needed in the future. Isthere any way to place the cd information on a network, so that anytime a new option needs to be installed it automatically just grabs the files from the server instead of having to put the cd in the computer. I've tried finding this command in theregistry, but to no avail. There are both NT and 98 clients on the network, mainly NT. Thank you in advance.

I would suggest reviewing the Microsoft Knowledge Base and the Office site. The most likely solution to your issue is to create an administrative installation of Office 2000 to a share.

Some articles that may interest you.

The previous poster's links should provide you with all the info you need.

To begin installing Office 2K into an administrative install point, from the Office 2000 CD, run SETUP.EXE /A and walk through the screens - it is fairly straight-forward.

Good luck.
