Default Install Access 2007 after initial Office install.


In our organization we were not ready to switch to Access 2007 at the same time we were upgrading to Office 2007 so I originally created a package to deploy Office Enterprise 2007 to our company. Months later, we're now ready to upgrade from Access 2003 to Access 2007 but I'm having some issues with the upgrade.

I used the OCT initially and am trying to find a silent way to install just Access 2007 and remove Access 2003 without affecting our users much. I've "almost" got it. Instead of using the OCT again, I'm creating a custom .xml which does get Access 2007 installed but doesn't remove 2003. Is there something I can put in the xml to force uninstall or remove 2003?

Here's what my xml looks like now:
Code:
<Configuration Product="Enterprise">    

    <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="yes" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />     
    <PIDKEY Value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" />
    <USERNAME Value="User" />
    <COMPANYNAME Value="Our Company" />

Thanks in advance for ANY help!

Default Upgrading to Access 2007 After Initial Office Install 2003 Not Removed.

Did you figure this out? I have the same problem, except I created an MSP to add access, but I do have the option to remove Access 2003 selected but it is not removed.

Actually I did figure this out. It might be a little clunky but it works well. In our environment, we have Office 2007 Ent installed but we are using Access 2003. I was trying to remove Access 2003 and replace it with Access 2007. Here's how I did it:

I first wrote a batch file that will check for MSACCESS.EXE in the Office11 folder, which if exists will uninstall Office 2003 products. Once finished it will kick off the network-based install for Office 2007 calling the custom.xml I created that will only add Access 2007. I did not use an .MSP file.

The batch file looks like this:
Code:
@echo off
color 17
title Microsoft Office Replacement Batch File
echo .
echo .
echo Checking for older versions of Microsoft Office.....
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 >NUL
if exist "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" goto Uninstall
goto Install
:Uninstall
cls
echo Older version of Microsoft Office detected.
ping -n 3 127.0.0.1 >NUL
echo Let's get rid of that.
ping -n 3 127.0.0.1 >NUL
echo .
echo .
cls
echo Uninstalling Office 2003. Please wait.....
Start /wait Msiexec.exe /x {90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} /qr
:Install
cls
echo Older version of Microsoft Office not detected.
ping -n 3 127.0.0.1 >NUL
cls
echo We'll install Microsoft Office 2007.
ping -n 3 127.0.0.1 >NUL
echo .
echo .
echo Running Office 2007 Installer. Please wait.....
Start /wait \\myserver\office\install\setup.exe /config \\myserver\office\install\customconfig.xml
echo .
echo .
echo .
cls
echo All Done! You should restart your computer immediately!
echo Press Enter to exit.
Pause>nul
The XML I created looks like this:
Code:
Configuration Product="Enterprise">    

    <Display Level="basic" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />     
    <PIDKEY Value="YOURPRODUCTKEYGOESHERE" />
    <USERNAME Value="User" />
    <COMPANYNAME Value="Our Company Name" /> 

    <!--
    ################################################################
    2007 OFFICE SYSTEM
    INSTALL NEWER VERSIONS
    ################################################################
    -->


<!-- Access -->
    <OptionState State="Local" Children="Force" Id="ACCESSFiles" />

<SetupUpdates
   CheckForSUpdates="Yes"
   SUpdateLocation="\\myserver\Office\Updates"/>
<Setting Id="SETUP_REBOOT" Value="IfNeeded" />

        

</Configuration>
I know the batch file is a little cheesy and can be modified but it works for us. I hope this helps.
