Volume media. FWIW, I did this with my Volume-licensed Office 2003. While it
doesn't default to installing in ClientApps, it's easy enough to put it
there and 'publish' the application.
How I did it:
- Install Office 2k3 using setup /a, selecting ClientApps\Office as the
- In Server Manager, go to the Client Computers folder and select Set Up
Client Applications. Follow the instructions.
- Do the same with the Assign Applications to Client Computers option
And there you are.
