    SMS default install command line (2003)

    Hi,
    The default or demonstration command line for installing office 2003 with SMS is:
    setup.exe /qb- /m Off11.mif
    Just wondering- What does the /m off11 bit mean?
    Thanks in advance
    Adrian.

    Office 2003 = Office 11 so my guess is that Off11.mif is some kind of configuration file for Office 2003.

    As for the actual meaning of /m, I'm sure there is a totally clear document on all the startup switches for setup.exe (the Windows installer) somewhere at microsoft.com. But I have no idea where it would be.

    <!mskb=826530>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 826530<!/mskb> explains all of the switches for Office 2003 Setup.exe. The comment for /m says...
    <hr><big>/m .mif file</big>
    The /m switch specifies an SMS .mif file name of 8 characters or less.

    Note Do not include the .mif file name extension with the file name. If you do, the command will return the following error: "Invalid command line."
    <hr>
    Which means nothing to me, but I found a reasonable explanation of how to use a MIF file here.
