    OK, my 2nd script and first installing an actual application install Office Communicator. Systems is v90 running xpe.
    start error:
    Try 1:CreateProcess Failed:2 c:communicatormsiexec /i communicator.msi /q Line#: 32 Cmd:EX c:communicatormsiexec /i communicator.msi /q

    First of all, afaik MS Communicator is not running on XPe default build. Is it running for you if you install it manually?

    Try changing the EX line in your script to something like
    EX c:windowssystem32msiexec.exe c:communicatorcommunicator.msi /q………..

    On the other hand, always remember that EX is executed as System and not as the logged in user!

    You are welcome.

    Is the Communicator working for you?

    Yes and no… it works, but I can not see our contacts status, says unknown, and while I can initiate a conversation with a contact, when they try to start one with me it says off line. I posted this question to the MS office discussion group.
    the system is a v90 with xpe no office installed. Any thoughts?

    These are same issue I saw. My customer ended up in buying a custom image from Wyse. I think to remember that there are several needed components were missing. But it is some years ago.
