Seeing as Office 2007 is now available via MSVL, MSDN and TechNet, I thought I’d post a reminder that I have documented the custom installation process via System Center Configuration Manager 2007.  This document was written while I still worked for 4sol.  The process of preparing your [...]

November 15, 2006 // 0 Comments

I didn’t post anything earlier today because I wanted this one to be pretty clear and mistake free.  I read some contradicting articles online about the fate of good old Software Update Services.  The first post I read state it’s end of life had been extended.  I was then fluting [...]
