  1. you dont really have to. All slipstreaming does is update files that are already there. The mst file only holds the process and selections you wanted. But in anything, updating your can't hurt (too much) . But either mst file should work gl
  2. no worries trying it out ok it now is clicking retry like a crack fiend... but no matter how many times it clicks retry for "themes.inf" the file is not moving over... aim is a wonderful thing
  3. nothing is happening D-= ok hold on.... cleaning it up...
  4. as far as i can tell... the test.exe / script is sitting paused in my system tray. should i try un pausing it and seeing what happens? Ok i just realized where the "tedious" part comes in heh
  5. heres the screen shot that I typed verbatim into an earler post theres a million of em and initially i was pasting them into a pain doc when i reached 11 and decided to stop (actually I started messing up )
  6. scrath what I said earlier about having to re-enter the cd-key and stuff... I finally cleared the folder (novel idea ) and tried again. it now skips that page but still errors on those file. I have copied the PFiles and Windows folders over and its currently happy at me (still installing) I'll edit this post when it finishes... Also you MUST add a "\" to the end of the directorys or it errors (I know from expierence ) Install finished without error after copying those two folders over... but alas those two folders are 350+ meg I'll post the error msg in the next reply
  7. the errors said " Error 1309. Error reading file: C:\office\PFiles\MSOffice\Office\BIDI32.DLL. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it. as far as i could see all the errors were in the PFiles direcotry setup did not finish and terminated after the help file stated above... there was nor ignore button on that error just retry and cancel =-/ and attached is a massively long directory pic... it may mor may not help =-/ ***note to self Paint is terrible at extremely long files... or maybe it was l_view... anywho here is a READABLE file **************since we can only post one file per post I've put the log file that goes with this post up /\ one post of mine /\ ________________________________________________ also btw if you are lookin at my directory structure and thinking some folders are missing you would be correct... i have removed the IE5 folder (who uses IE5 anymore anyway? and the MSI folder (its built in to W2K and WxP =D) and the mst file is set not to do anything with IE5 also folders System95 and SystemNT have also been removed but I have run install on my comp and it was error free so hopefully that wont be a problem... just less junk on the cd ***attachment removed because it was useless
  8. so... just to fulfil my cruriosity... are you removing excess files that are not needed in the installation of office... or are you compressing the massive and i mean massive amount of files so as to take up less space. (I tried adding it all to an IExpress setup but there is at least one duplicate file which totally renders IExpress useless And currently I havent found a way of making a winzip install out of it that can be rendered unattended... and I haven't even looked at the other installers ... heh ***well I does not error. but if you click yes to running setup after install I does give you that first screen asking for the cd-key and orginization... and oddley enough it does keep the setting for what part of the customize which are set in the unattended.mst Basically I cant find any Files in C:\office\PFiles\ Directory and the file C:\office\Windows\Help\WZCNFLCT.CHM was also missing and that file forces me to quit... in just a moment ill add a pic that show what the original directory tree looks like (if i can) **************************************************************************************************** ************************************ ***here is the log pertaining to the post after....***************************** office.log
  9. its a winner =D Pop up box said code works ... when setup started it was on the screen for the cd-key... normally in admin install it skips this page... dont know if its associated with your exe or that that exe didnt have the code or something but it didnt error "2004-03-21 16:25:59 : <--- LOG OPENED ---> 2004-03-21 16:26:13 : Office Source : N:\o2kD1Admin 2004-03-21 16:26:15 : Office Target : C:\office\ 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : Source Files Necessicary for setup Copied to: C:\office\ 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : . 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : .. 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : AUTORUN.INF 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : DATA1.MSI 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : LICENSE.TXT 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : MSOWC.CAB 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : MSOWC.MSI 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : OFFICE1.CAB 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : OSESETUP.INF 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : OWS.MSI 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : README.DOC 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : READOSE.TXT 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : SETUP.EXE 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : SETUP.HLP 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : SETUP.INI 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : SETUPSE.EXE 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : SETUPSE.INI 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : SQLWRAP.EXE 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : Unattended.MST 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : Source Files Necessicary for setup Copied to: C:\office\FILES\SETUP\ 2004-03-21 16:26:17 : Command Run: C:\office\SETUP.EXE TRANSFORMS=C:\office\Unattended.MST " ***stupid second page of post didn't even realize it was here :/
  10. Heres the results from running it. I hope it helps.
  11. I finally got around to slipstreaming SP3 into my Office 2000 Sr1 administrative point folder (o2kD1Admin). and for giggles I patched my o2k Sr-1 folder with sp3 (office_disc_1_full) I then created a MST using the data1.msi file from the o2kD1Admin folder. once done I ran your program and no matter which folder i specify for the files or if i click yes or no at the "continue installation after shrinking" promt it spits out an error message. attached (hopefully *cross fingers*) is my log and jpg of the error. hopefully you can make sense of it =-/ ***on a side not I just realize this thread was about office 2003 (go me) but anywho shouldn't it still work with o2k? thanks for your time
