  1. Does Xplode work with the 64 bit version of windows xp pro or just the 32 bit version?
  2. Not sure if this will help, but I had the same problem with my 32 bit version. After install it would show the windows xp logo and then reboot right away and kept doing it. Turned out to be my winnt.sif file. I had OemPreinstall=no. I changed that to yes and then it worked. Like i said that was 32 bit version though. Hope that helps.
  3. So what was the error all about? Is this going to somehow affect how Office runs in the future? I didn't really mess with the programs just opened word to see if it worked. It didn't act peculiar or anything. Seemed normal.
  4. Well that file seemed to do the trick. I appreciate it. I like it installing here better than at logon. So my question now is what is different with that exe file than the setup.exe file. Just curious to know what was done to it to make it work.
  5. I replaced the setup.exe file with the one you supplied and I got an error. I was able to click ignore for the error and Office still installed though and appears to be working correctly.

  7. Well I've gotten it to work now by running xplode through cmdlines.txt. I don't install office at this point. I then also have runonceex.cmd call xplode and thats where I am installing office. It does work. I am not sure what you mean by running it with /qb? I am using /qb-. Are you saying to drop the -? I never get an error. It just doesn't install. Acts like it does. Looks the same as when I use runonceex.cmd, but just doesn't work. I was told in another post, office can't be installed at t-12 cause the registry is incomplete. I defintely welcome some advice though. Would love if I could install at same time as other apps.
  8. So are you saying to not use xplode? All my other apps install fine and I am rather fond of how it works. Mostly curious to know about the best office installation.
  9. Found out that office won't install at the 12 minute point. So looks like I install it at first logon. Thanks for the help. Got to like it when the guy who writes a free program like this and is also willing to help troubleshoot problems. Thanks again.
  10. That's the exact information I needed. Thank you Do you install Office silently and what method do you use to install it if you do? Just kind of curious as to what you think the best way to install it is. I use xplode for everything else I install.
  11. I used orca to edit my msi file to allow silent installs and it works fine with runonceex.cmd and also within windows. I can't get it to install with Xplode and was wondering if anyone knew if office 2k3 can be installed at the 12 minute mark. It acts like it is installing, but nothing installs. I noticed that with runonceex.cmd it doesn't actually install until the first logon. Would really appreciate some help on this one. I already posted on the Xplode forum, but was directed to this forum.
  12. The only reason I thought it might be an xplode issue was because it works with the RunOnceEx.cmd method and also by just installing it within windows itself. The only way I can't get it to install is through xplode. Can Office be installed at the 12 minute mark? When I use runonceex.cmd it seems to install at first log on when windows is already installed.

I also wanted to let you know that I used to have problems in the older Xplode version with plug ins not loading. I had to disable Hyperthreading to get Xplode to work. Seems to be installing fine now with hyperthreading enabled now. At least in VM Ware so far it does. Not sure how different VMware is compared to the actual installation.
  14. I am using Xplode 4.1 and it works great except for installing Office 2k3. All other apps install fine. I get no errors in my Xplode log file. I have tried installing office using RunOnceEx.cmd and also just in windows using Run and just entering the path and it installs silently both ways with no problems. I have a retail version of Office 2k3 Professional and have done the silent install according to this post http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?act=ST&f=80&t=24307.

I have tried using the pro11n.msi file in my command line instead of setup.exe. I have changed the order of when it installs and no luck there either. I have tried so many different variations and am now lost as what to do. If anyone has any ideas of what I can do to get this going I would appreciate it. Would also like to thank Wraith for making a program that makes installing windows less like a chore.
  15. Thanks a lot for the help. Works like a charm now. Definitely something I would have never thought of. Thanks also to Wraith for writing such a cool and useful program.
