    Moving admistrative install point (Office XP (SP2))

    We have installed Office from a network installation point but I now need to move the source files to another server.

    As I understand it I have a few options here and just wondered if anyone had any advice.

    Should I use the CIW to add an additional administrative point.
    Is there a registry hack I could use.
    I also found some advise for Office 200 in a Microsoft article (Q267362) that suggested using a command line.

    MSIEXEC /i admin pathMSI file REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus /qb

    where admin path is the path of your new administrative installation point, and where MSI file is the Windows Installer database package for your Office product.

    Thanks

    It can't hurt using the CIW and add a new install point. As long as you are actually moving everything and not trying to update any of the install point's files, that should work. If it doesn't work, then you could always do the command line Reinstall command afterwards.
    Just my two cents.

    I'm not 100% familiar with Office XP, but with the O2K Custom Installation Wizard (CIW) you can name up to 10 installation points (more I believe with the XP version), Office will search for each installation point sequentially until it finds one, it then remembers that point the next time it refers back to the source files.

    I hope this helps.
