This document provides steps required to deploy MS Project 2010 to multiple computers using Desktop Central.
Before you deploy the software application, ensure that the computers to which you deploy MS Project 2010 meet the system requirements prescribed by Microsoft. Refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee624351.aspx#section12 for more details.
To deploy MS Project 2010, follow the steps given below:
Note: The network share should have read permissions to the Everyone in the group and should be accessible from all the computers to which you are trying to install.
Note: If you are not copying the contents from a CD, then execute the following command in the directory where the installer is present.
a. Copy all the extracted contents from the <target_directory> with the same directory structure, to the network share that you created.
Note: When installing the OCT, you are required to specify the network share, that you created, as the location extract the files. Three folders will be extracted from the OCT. They are ADM, Admin, and ADMX.
Note: This opens the OCT from where you can specify the information about the License, Company, and change outlook profiles.
Note: If you select the MAK(Multiple Activation Key) option, you are required to enter a 25-character key. However, if you select the KMS key option, you need not enter any key.
Note: The default setting is to remove all the older version. If you want to retain some of the office components select the Remove the following earlier versions of Microsoft Office programs option and choose the components that you want to retain.
This ensures that your computers will not be rebooted after installations.
