        The Network Installation Wizard version 2.1 allows you to modify Setup information files to create a customized network installation of Office 97. If you install Office in batch mode (without user interaction), Setup installs the software using the default values you specify with the Network Installation Wizard. If users install Office in interactive mode, the values you set with the Network Installation Wizard are presented as the default choices during installation.

        It is highly recommended to download and read the ORK97.CHM (a compiled image of the Office 97 Resource Kit web site that was retired in 2004). The download of this file is available from the Microsoft Download Center. The command line options for setup are available in Appendix B of the ORK97.CHM. See the Related Resources to the right side of this page for the link to the ORK97.EXE download.
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows XP

        The Network Installation Wizard requires the use of operating systems that can run Office 97.
      • Download and run SetupNIW.exe (2004 KB). Follow instructions to install the Network Installation Wizard.

        Use of the Network Installation Wizard requires supplying the LST file of the edition of Office 97 you intend to customize when you start the utility. It is suggested you copy the LST file from the Office 97 CD and save it to a unique directory/folder on your computer where you can safely create a customized STF file from the LST file. When customizations are complete, you can use the setup.exe program and provide a command line option to instruct acmsetup to use the STF file, with your customizations, to install Office 97.
