So I've been struggling in my spare time to get Office 2010 ThinApped on Windows 7, and here's what I found:
You can't do it yet.
Found a forum here talking about it. You can get it on XP (I don't care about XP right now in my test View environment), but not Win 7.
The issue is that you run into a licensing error when you deploy, because of the way that MS has changed licensing for Office 2010.
So as of right now there are two solutions for my View environment - require everyone to be on 2010 (include it in the base image) or make 2 base images, and move people over as possible.
Either way a pain, but whatever works.
Here's some books that should help out:
