Repackage Office Professional 2010 SP1

Dear All,

I am seeking for a best practice on how-to repackage MS Office Pro 2010 SP1 using adminStudio 2013.

Your support is very much appreciated ;)

Kind regards,
Alex

Wow ... never repackage a vendors MSI ... especially not MS Office.

Use the "Office Customization Tool" from Microsoft:

Many thanks for your prompt reply Mistral.

I have a volume licensed versions of Office 2010 that I need to customize before repackaging it, for that as you suggested, I cutumized it with OCT and generate the .msp which I then added under the "Updates" folder. For your information, I did not find the windows installer MSI file, I only found the setup.exe. That is why I thought of using the adminStudio 2013 to repackage it along with the .msp I generated using the OCT.

The MSIs (lots of them) are encapsulated and extracted during installation (to temporary folders and C:\MSOcache).

Setup.exe is what we call a bootstrapper.

Do not repackage it, do not transform it (Using other tools than OCT).

Office is very special and even using XML-Files during installation to "transform".
