we have a network installation of office 2003 being distributed via a
bundle from a public share.

This works very well but for one thing - it times out and starts itself

1 - the bundle distribution/installation starts for Office 2003

2 - other bundles install in parallel

3 - the office 2003 bundle continues to install

4 - it seems that because the office 2003 bundle has not completed, then
it tries to start it again resulting in error messages in the progress
reports and confused technicians.

Is there some way of preventing these second, third, fourth, fifth, etc
attempts to start the Office installation?
