After you have created the Office Professional Plus 2010 application, you need to distribute the application to the distribution points. Doing so allows installation of the application from the distribution points. For the purposes of this guide, there is only one distribution point (WDG-MDT-01). In typical Configuration Manager 2012 deployments, there are usually multiple distribution points.
