From this line, you can verify that the product ID is ProPlus.
After you create the Config.xml file, run the Office Setup again by using the modify command option to modify your installation and the config command option to call the Config.xml file that you just created. To do this, run the following command:
"%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\setup.exe" /modify ProductID /config "path\Config.xml"
In this command, replace the placeholder ProductID with the product ID (ex. ProPlus), and replace the placeholder path with the path of the Config.xml file that you created.

- Your Setup.exe file may be in a different location.
