    Download version of Office 2007 to CD (2007 Ultimate)

    I purchased my Office Ultimate 2007 from Microsoft through school. When it downloaded it was one file -- X12-30307MSO_2007.exe -- that would then extract into the install files.

    Is there a way to extract tiles and then burn them to CD in order to have direct access to the program files in case or repair need or add/remove features?

    Regards,

    What are "tiles"?
    Most of time all you would need to do is rerun the downloaded EXE file. It is most likely the same one that is on the CD if bought from a retail store.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    To extract files from installation package, use /extract:[path to folder] switch. For example: the command

    <font face="Georgia">X12-30307MSO_2007.exe /extract:C:MSO12</font face=georgia>

    will extract installation files into C:MSO12 folder. For more information, run /? switch:

    <font face="Georgia">X12-30307MSO_2007.exe /?</font face=georgia>

    Most likely it will be possible to burn installation files to CD. However, I would recommend to add all necessary updates to Updates folder, to put your installation key (by modifying Ultimate/wwconfig.xml file) and burn it to DVD.

    Download the updates from http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/download...0224941033.aspx (browse all Office components which are included to your package) started from SP-1, if applicable, save them to separate folder and extract .msp files, then put .msp files into Updates folder.
