I don't think so, but wouldn't it be better to have a look whether there is a commandline option?

Usually the Office 2007 install process puts a hidden folder on the C: drive called MSOCache that holds the installation files for all the features of Office, even those not installed. In one of the folders there's a file called Proofing.msi and, at least in my installation, there's 3 folders under that one called Proof.en/Proof.fr/Proof.es that hold other msi files for installing the proofing tools for the respective languages. You might try and see if these files are on the target machine for your script and run that instead.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

How to ask questions the smart way!

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
