HowTos ~ Silent Installer for Office 2007

Sometimes installation of normal software becomes curse when they are performed in large numbers. For example if you are working in an Organization like Office or School and you are assigned to install Office 2007 (or later version) in 100+ PCs. What will you think to accomplish this task???

Silent Installers are best answers in this criteria. Here I am displaying some steps to create a silent installer at your own end.


  1. Open DOS Prompt (Command Prompt) in the Folder where Office Setup Files are placed and run setup.exe /admin command.
  2. A prompt will ask you about either to create a new file or open an existing file. In my case I am starting a new file from scratch.
  3. Provide information under Setup > Install location and Organization Name (Example is shown in screenshot)
  4. Provide Product Key, Accept License & set Display Level Settings as described here in this illustration
  5. If you want to Skip steps from now and onward, this is enough for making it Silent Installer. But now I shall describe the steps that would optimize the settings for Microsoft Office.
