How can I package office 2010 applications individually for distribution via SCCM 2012?

I can package the office suite with no problem using an MSP file to customize it, but if I install only Excel for example using setup.exe /adminfile excelonly.msp, I can not later run the install again with a different MSP file to add Word to the existing installation.

Error I get is:

The /adminfile command-line option can be used only during initial installation of the product.

You could download the individual applications in the Office Suite as individual application installs thus use those to package them individually.

Yep that does it. Silly miscommunication on our part - I thought they downloaded the individual installs... – Keith Jan 10 '13 at 16:34
