    Office XP Administrative Installation Point (SP2)

    I am new to this forum, and have been searching for an answer to my very basic question. I am wanting to create an administrative installation point for Office XP and the documentation suggests running setup.exe /a. I have done this with other versions, but my XP CD doesn't have a setup.exe at the root level.
    Does this mean the CD I have actually includes sp1?
    Will I create the admin install point with setuppro.exe /a???
    Also, can someone point me to a web page that gives all the version-specific info? I'm not talking about Word 2002, but rather 10.2627.2625, etc.

    Thanks so much for the help.

    Seemly nobody knows all answers.

    1. No, it doesn't.
    2. Yes, it's correct. Replace everywhere "setup.exe" with "setup???.exe", where ??? is desirable verson (Professional, Professional with FrontPage, Word only, Excel only, etc.).
    3. I don't know. I never heard about it.

    The specific build numbers for different patch levels of Office applications can be inconsistent. Try looking at the MS pages for the various updates to see if those numbers are listed. If not, you might survey other computers in your organization to see if you can confirm the build numbers.
