Replicon uses Microsoft Office Web Components to execute Web TimeSheet Pivot Reports.  Follow Instructions below to create an Administrative Installation Point for Office and specify it under System Preferences option on Replicon Web TimeSheet.

  • Create a share on a network server for the administrative Installation Point.  The Network share must have at least 650 megabytes of available hard-disk space.
  • On a computer that has write access to the share, connect to the server share.  The computer must be running supported Operating System: Windows 2000 or later, NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a, Windows ME, or Windows 98.
  • On the Start menu, click Run, and then click Browse.
  • On the Office XP CD, double-click setup.exe and add /a to the command line.
  • Enter the organization name that you want to define for all users who install Office from this administrative installation point.
  • Enter the server and share you created as the installation location.
  • Enter the 25-character Volume License Product Key and click Next.
  • Users who install Office XP from this administration installation point are not prompted to enter a product key when they install Office XP or start an Office XP application for the first time, nor are they required to activate the product.
  • Accept the end-user license agreement and click Install.   
  • By accepting the agreement here, you are accepting on behalf of all users who install Office from this administrative installation point.Setup copies the files from the Office XP CD to the administrative installation point, extracts the compressed cabinet (CAB) files, and creates a hierarchy of folders in the root folder of the share. The System Files Update is automatically included during an administrative installation.  Setup file modifies the Windows Installer package for Office, identifying it as an administrative installation package and sets up the Product ID and Company Name properties accordingly.
  • When users run Setup to install Office, any Office features that are installed to run from the network use this administrative
  • Installation point as the source of Office files, and Office runs the features over the network from this server. Similarly, for features that are set to be installed on first use, Office copies files from this server when needed. If you install features in one of these two states, then you must keep this network server available to users.

To Update Web TimeSheet application with the Installation Point:
Login as Administrator.
Select System Preferences under System section from the left menu.
Locate Microsoft Office XP administrative installation point (optional) in the Reports section of the page.
Enter the Installation Point/Path in field given (Refer the attached image).
Click Save to apply Changes.



Specifying Microsoft Office XP administrative installation point is optional – If you do not specify an installation point, Web TimeSheet will provide a link from which the user can download Office Web Components directly from the Microsoft website.
