How to get the Outlook Social Connector in MSI format

If you need to Deploy the Outlook Social Connector via GPSI, you’ll need to get your hands on the MSI files.

To do so, follow these instructions…

  1. Download the OSC file from Microsoft
  2. Run the following command from a command prompt: outlooksocialconnector-x86-en-us.exe /extract:C:\osc\
  3. This will extract the msi files to c:\osc\
  4. You can then use the MSI file to deploy OSC! 🙂

If you want to integrate the MSP Patch files are well, just do this:

  1. msiexec /p c:\osc\osc-x-none-en-us.msp /a \\yourserver\share\osc.msi
  2. msiexec /p c:\osc\oscintl-en-us.msp /a \\yourserver\share\osc.msi

Then you’ll be deploying the MSI fully patched 🙂
