The Office Sustained Engineering and the Office Deployment Support teams have published Robust Office Inventory Scan (ROIScan.vbs), a new Visual Basic script that administrators can use to collect data about Office installations and to help detect and troubleshoot installation and updates errors. When you run ROIScan.vbs, a log file is created. You can use the log file to perform tasks such as the following:

  • Assess the installed Office configuration on users' computers
  • Get detailed data about the Office installation so you can reproduce the user's environment
  • Look for mismatched Office versions or configurations
  • Help troubleshoot Office software updates and installation issues

You can download the ROIScan.vbs script (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=217656) from the Office section of the Script Repository in the TechNet Script Center.
