Is There A Way To Automaticly Fill In The "User Information" When Someone Goes To Install Office XP Professional?

So When A User Starts A Network Installation Of Office, And They Lauch The Setup.exe File, The Wizard Skips The User Information & The Product Key And Goes Straight To The Installation Section.

I have never done it myself. However, I do have a link that walks you through the steps to do what I think you are asking...

http://unattended.msfn.org/intermediate/ap...xp_advanced.htm

This site helped me SlipStream XP SP2 into my installation CD, so hopefully you will have the same luck with XP office.

Let us know if the link is helpful,

Good-Luck.

:thumbsup:

as far as i know you need to copy the contents of CD to hardrive, edit a file then burn it to disc not sure if that's illegal or not as long as your the owner of the original it might be OK but Microsoft don't like people copying there products for understandable reasons.

Yea microsoft frowns on that. It is one copy per machine. You can get additional licsenses for the origional. The key then needs to be added into the batch file of the unattended install.
