how can I deploy Office 2010 Professional Plus using SCCM 2007 Part 2. Create Package/Program/Advertisement and Test

In part one of this guide,
we prepared Office 2010 X86 by downloading the files required
(including the OCT), and created our own MSP file. Now we will add that
customised package to ConfigMgr.

Step 1. Create the Office 2010 Package

Note: Before starting this step, copy the c:\Office2010x86 folder we created in part one of this guide, to your application sources share on your SCCM server, eg:


Open your ConfigMgr console, and expand Computer Management, Software Distribution. Right click on Packages and choose New Package.
