Deploy Office 2010 with Multiple Languages with MDT 2010

I Like Office 2010. For me it is the best Office version i ever worked with.
MDT 2010 it’s great tool that Microsoft created.
Now i will talk about how you deploy Office 2010 with Multilanguage packs with MDT 2010.

    Microsoft Assessment & Planning Toolkit

    The Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit is an agentless toolkit that finds computers on a network and performs a detailed inventory of the computers using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and the Remote Registry Service. The data and analysis provided by this toolkit can significantly simplify the planning process for migrating to Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Microsoft Office 2007, Windows Server® 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Hyper-V, Microsoft Application Virtualization, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, and Forefront® Client Security and Network Access Protection. Assessments for Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Vista include device driver availability as well as recommendations for hardware upgrades.

    You can use MAP to inventory the following platforms:

    • Windows 7
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows XP® Professional
    • Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2
    • Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2003 R2
    • Windows 2000 Professional or Windows 2000 Server
    • VMware ESX
    • VMware ESXi
    • VMware Server

    – Identification of currently installed Windows client operating systems, their hardware, and recommendations for migration to Windows 7 and Windows Vista. The tool also reports if desktops have anti-virus and anti-malware programs installed and if the Windows Firewall is turned on.
    – Identification of currently installed Windows Server operating systems, their hardware, and recommendations for migration to Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
    – Identification of currently installed Microsoft Office software and recommendations for migration to Microsoft Office 2007.
    – Detailed assessment and reporting of server utilization gathered using the Performance Metrics Wizard.

    – Identification of machines where Microsoft SQL Server components are installed.
    – Identification of virtual machines, their hosts, and details about each.
    – Identification of Windows Server Roles

    Hardware Requirements:
    – Windows 2003 x86/x64 or Windows 2008 x86/x64

    Alleen tja hij moet geinstalleerd worden op 10+ pc’s dan doe je het volgende:
    Pak een machine wellicht een VM en dubbel klik op licentie agreement en wacht er op dat hij deze uitgepakt heeft en klik vervolgens op OK. Ga vervolgens naar C:Program FilesMSECacheO2007Cnv1033 en kopieer vervolgende de uitgepakte files naar een netwerk schijf bijvoorbeeld ( \serverappsmsi packetsOffice2003fcv) waar alle domein users lees rechten op hebben vervolgens.

    Maak een nieuwe GPO of edit een bestaande en koppel aan deze GPO O12Conv.msi. Hang aan deze GPO de juist pc’s/laptop’s en hij wordt automatisch uitgerold.
