Tips: How to use the OCT to customize your Office 2010 Installation

If you’re going to setup Office 2010 setup, it will be an easier task as it takes only a few command line switches. It is to help you configure settings for your Office 2010 easy deployment. Office 2010 includes various tools that simplify the process of customizing settings. Actually, it is included with Volume License editions of Office 2010, the Office Customization Toolkit (OCT) can provide you access the numerous customization settings. Therefore, here we have an overview of what we exactly need to know to start using the OCT in order to create a customized installation.
First of all to deploy Office 2010 in the organization, you can create a network installation point. This should be a server location that the clients throughout your organization access. For example, you can create the following folder on a server: \\server\share\Office2010. If you’ve finished creating this folder, it is required to copy all the files and folders from your Office 2010 media to this network folder. This is called the new network installation point.



You can easily see an Admin folder among all the Office 2010 files and folders you copy to the network installation point.

If you wish to launch OCT and customize the installation:
1.    First, it is required to open a command prompt (or use the Run command).
2.    Now, it is required to navigate to the root of the network installation point you created (in this case, \\server\share\Office2010)
3.    Then, run setup.exe /admin

If OCT is launched, it is required to select which Office product you wish to customize and even if you have just one version of Office located on the installation point. Besides using OCT, you can configure numerous settings, ranging from tasks to be performed during the install process to set that will hide features and strengthen security. These settings can be classified into four. They are…..
Setup
Enter product key information, indicate whether to uninstall older versions of Office apps, and so on
Features
Configure granular user settings for various Office applications, and so on
Additional Content
Make changes to the registry, specify where shortcuts should be placed, and so on
Outlook
Work with Profiles, and so on

The settings will be saved in a .msp file that is used during installation. If you’ve finished making all the necessary customizations, you can save the file to the updates folder located on the network installation points (in this case, \\server\share\Office2010\Updates). Note that OCT lets you customize the installation and specify default configuration settings for Office 2010. Moreover, it doesn’t enforce settings moving forward though. Besides, users can modify the settings you configured using OCT. In order to enforce settings, you should use Group Policy.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
