Microsoft® Office 2010 Group Policy Deployment
You can use Group Policy to assign computer startup scripts to deploy Microsoft Office 2010. The startup script can be written in any language that is supported by the client computer. Windows Script Host-supported languages, such as VBScript and Jscript,, and command files are the most common languages used to write scripts. Leverages Active Directory Domain Services (AD-DS) handles the elevation of privileges required for application installation. You can use a similar scripting process to apply security updates and service packs for each computer in the domain or organizational unit. Group Policy startup scripts are a solution for organizations that do not have a desktop management application, such as Microsoft System Center Essentials or System Center Configuration Manager, but that needs an automated way to deploy Office 2010 to many computers.
- Network share
- System center configuration manager
- Application virtualization
- Presentation virtualization (Remote desktop services)
A simple way to deploy Office 2010 is through the network share. You can share files quickly and efficiently over your home network by setting up a network share. It is very simple to deploy Office 2010 with network share. You need to create a network installation point and copy the content of the Office CD onto the network share. It is easier for smaller IT departments to implement, as it needs only network share and network access as requirement and is highly flexible too.
System center configuration manager
You can use configuration management software, such as Microsoft System Center Essentials and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, to deploy Office 2010 applications. The default settings can be customized and configured to suit your needs. It helps to manage network bandwidth easier. You can have a centralized control over the network. Monitoring, reporting and issue resolution, can be done over the entire network.
It means thinking of the client in terms of a user's needs--deploying to an individual, not to a client machine. You can use Application Virtualization as a deployment option to allow users to run Office 2010 applications on their workstations. You can control application usage and license metering, which can help to ensure compliance. It allows multiple versions of Office to run on the workstation and can run both virtual applications and installed applications.
Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services can be used as a deployment option to allow users to operate the Office 2010 applications from their workstations. Terminal Services is run on a shared server and presents the application user interface on a remote system, such as a local workstation. It provides thin-client support and reduces network traffic since only the keyboard, mouse, and display information are transmitted.
