Hello Mmmopo,
When you create an mst then you have to activate this by either a command or by 
a group policy. When you use the setup it will not use the mst. The most 
easiest way is to do it via a group policy. Then you can assign different 
groups (OU's) different policies and thus different installations..
Good luck!!

        Dear All, 
        i have a problem with installing Office 2003. 
        My Goal is:- 
        1- i want to Let my users in the company to install the office 2003 
from shared folder over the Network. 
        2- i do not want them at all to enter any information during the 
installation Process like Product Key or Organization name. 
        3-i do not want them at all to change or custimze what they need , so i 
have here 4 departement, i want for Accountant Departement to have only Excel & 
Word, while the other 3 departements should have only the PoerPoint , Access & 
InfoPath only. 
        What i did is, i create compressed CD image on the Network, and i copy 
it to shared folder on my file server . 
        Now , with using the Office 2003 Resource Kit, i used Custome 
installation Wizard and it already created MST File for me. 
        But i did not change any thing at all in the Setup.ini file at all. 
        from any one of the clients over the Network , i connect to the Shared 
folder from Run Menu and i run the Setup from the Run Menu ( the Setup.exe file 
is located on the Server shared folder ) and i only double click on setup.exe 
without add any other things and i found that , i am still Prompet for Enter 
the Company Name & Product Key . 
        did i missed any thing , Please Help .
