Administrators can modify the Config.xml file to configure attributes for the OptionState element to specify the following installation behaviors:

  • The feature or subfeature is not installed.

  • The feature or subfeature is installed the first time that it is used by the user.

  • The feature or subfeature is installed locally on the user's computer.

  • Subfeatures of the feature are set to the specified state.

The OptionState element uses the following syntax. The attribute and element names are case-sensitive.

<OptionState

   Id="optionID"

   State="Absent" | "Advertise" | "Local"

   [Children="force"]

/>

where:

optionId is the identifier for a feature or sub-feature that is to be installed.

Absent specifies that the feature or sub-feature is not installed.

Advertise specifies that the feature or sub-feature is installed on first use.

Local installs the feature or sub-feature on the user's computer.

Force sets all features or sub-features to their specified states.

If you set the installation state of an application in Office 2010 to "Absent," the shortcut for that application is not created on the user's computer when Office is assigned. For example, the following element definition in Config.xml prevents the shortcut for Microsoft Access 2010 from being created and Microsoft Access 2010 is not installed on the user's computer:

<OptionState Id="ACCESSFiles" State="Absent" />

Administrators can edit the Config.xml file to customize the installation. By default, the Config.xml file that is stored in the core product folders (core_product_folder_name.WW folder such as ProPlus.WW) directs Setup to install that product. For example, the Config.xml file in the ProPlus.WW folder installs Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010.

To modify the OptionState element
  1. Open the Config.xml file in a text editor tool such as Notepad.

  2. Locate the line in Config.xml that contains the OptionState element, as shown in the following example:

    <!-- <OptionState Id="OptionID" State="absent" Children="force" /> -->

  3. Modify the OptionState element entry by specifying the options that you want to use. For example, use the following syntax if you do not want Microsoft Publisher 2010 to be installed:

    <OptionState Id="PubPrimary" State="Absent" />

  4. Repeat the previous step to specify OptionState options for other features and subfeatures that you want to change.

  5. Save the Config.xml file.
