Possible Solution 1: Relocate the MSP file to the Updates directory, and then run setup.exe without specifying the /adminfile option. For more information about deploying updates during the installation, see Deploying the 2007 Office system.
Possible Solution 2: Verify that the MSP file does not have the Suppress modal check box selected. For more information about configuring this setting, see Overview of 2007 Office System Deployment.
