Question
How do I repackage my Microsoft Office 2007 installation?

Answer
Altiris does not support nor recommend using Wise for Windows Installer, Wise Installation Studio, or Wise Package Studio to repackage or create a transform for Microsoft Office 2000, XP, 2003, and 2007. These are already .msi files that are launched by an external .exe.

Microsoft has its own toolkits for this purpose: Office Resource Tookit (for versions earlier than 2007) and Office Customization Tools (OCT).  

We recommend using Microsoft's toolkit because of the custom coding in these applications don't  follow Windows Installer standards for creating an .msi.
