Office Deployment Guide
Because Microsoft Office is often a corporate standard application suite and because of its size, the BDD 2007 project treats it as a core application to be included in the base computer image used during the corporate deployment of the Windows Vista operating system. This guide provides instruction for the Computer Imaging System and Application Management feature teams to install the 2007 Office system on the disk image, and then deploy that disk image throughout the organization. In addition to describing how to customize the 2007 Office system, this guide describes an alternative scenario for organizations that have already deployed Windows Vista but have not yet deployed the 2007 Office system. This guide describes the tasks each team must complete to upgrade existing Microsoft Office XP and Microsoft Office 2003 configurations to the 2007 Office release.
