Office 2007 as Dynamic Administrator

Trying to install Office 2007 on our Vista desktops as Dynamic Admin. Regular users are power users so we need the elevated user rights. We can install the app manually using the same procedures as the bundle, but the bundle throws a "1603" MSI error. We don't get this error when running the command manually, nor do we get it when run as a regular user who is an admin. What's the dealeo?!

setup /adminfile "officecustom.msp"
In the OCT, we set to run with no interface, no modal, and no completion info. (completely silent as MS suggests.

Re: Office 2007 as Dynamic Administrator

Are your setup files on a network server ? If yes, your network credentials
are not used by the "Dynamic Administrator" account, look news://forums.novell.com/b2fc1e5de618ca4679ea6651f0@forums.novell.com

Re: Office 2007 as Dynamic Administrator

Create a bundle (using an Install Directory) to copy the files locally (say C:\ZCM\Office2007), then an execute step as Secure System user to run the install from the local copy.

Works fine here in 10.0.2 - took about 15 mins max to create the bundle and replicate on our servers.
