If you are deploying the 2007 Microsoft Office system in an environment that includes users who work primarily in the field and who have limited access to your organization's network, you can create a customized 2007 Office installation image and make the installation files available on a CD for those users. The installation image can contain multiple languages and Office products.
The following table highlights the steps that are required to deploy a customized installation with a CD.
Create a network installation point that contains the Office 2007 products that you want to install.
Copy the Single Language Packs (SLPs) that you want to use to the network installation point. This allows Setup to coordinate a single installation of multiple language versions of the product.
Use the Office Customization Tool (OCT) for the customizations and installation options that you want to apply.
Copy the entire Office 2007 folder with the source files and your customizations from the network installation point to a CD. Distribute the folder to users.
Instruct users to run Setup.exe from the CD that you created. For example, instruct users to type the following at the command prompt:<CD drive_name>:\Office12\setup.exe
