Received error "File not found on target computer" when installing Office 2007

Thanks to user JWatt who discovered that if you have multiple Office products bundled in the same directory (standard, pro, enterprise, etc.) and you execute 

setup.exe /adminfile your_msp.msp

from within PDQ Deploy you will see the error:

File not found on target computer.

When you attempt to install manually by running the setup from a command window you will get a dialog which asks which Office product you are attempting to install.

RESOLUTION: Only have the version of Office (standard, enterprise, etc.) that you wish to deploy in the source directory from where you execute setup.exe.
