Office 2010 installs Sharepoint components even when not enabled

I found that when you installed Office 2010 with the SP1 update it would install the Sharepoint component even when the component was disabled using a .MSP configuration file.

Microsoft acknowledges this as an issue but the fix isn't very clear.

What you need to do to resolve the issue at the package level is
  • Download this update.
  • Then unpack the EXE files into temp directory (use the /? to find out how to unpack the files)
  • Next you need to copy the .MSP and .XML file in the office updates folder.
  • Now copy the .DLL file in to the admin folder of your office install.
