Prevent Reboots During An Unattended Installation Of Office 2010

Office 2010 is installed as part of our standard Windows 7 System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) task sequence.  Office installed correctly all our PC models except the Dell Latitude E6320 and E6330.  These models rebooted during the Office installation, stopping the task sequence and leaving the laptop unusable.  If you have the same problem the resolution is easy.

Open your existing MSP file that controls the Office installation by running Setup.exe /Admin.

Open the “Modify Setup properties” section and add a new property.  The property name needs to be SETUP_REBOOT and the value Never.

Office 2010 MSP No Reboot

Save your changes to the MSP and Office will no longer reboot.
