The Office 2010 Beta went public late last night so you might be wondering how to deploy it with MDT 2010.  To do so you first need to extract the files from Microsoft with the command:

ProfessionalPlus.exe /extract:c:\extractedfolder

 

Now that you have extracted the files you can import Office 2010 directly into MDT 2010 as an application.  Go to the Applications node and choose a New Application, choose Application with Source Files and click on Next.  Enter in the Application Name information and click on Next.  For the source files choose the extracted folder you created earlier and click on Next.  Enter a name for the folder and click on Next.  For the command line just enter setup.exe and click on Next.  Click on Next on the summary screen and the Application will be created.

Now that you have Office 2010 imported as an application you can now go to the Properties of the Application you Created and you should see a new tab that looks like the following:

If you want to customize the installation you can choose to use the Office Customization Tool.  For example to set the product key for the installation you would navigate to Licensing and User Interface as shown below:

Just enter your product key and go to File, Save to save your changes.

Now you are ready to install Office 2010!
