  1. Delighted to help out! I make heavy use of images so, trashing multiple installations is no issue. Just let me know what, where, and when....
  2. @mara I will test and get back to you....(am on vacation - so, it will be next week) Impressive body of work !!!!
  3. I may have missed this - but, after using nlite to tweak various user settings are those settings applied to new user accounts that are setup from within Windows after the installation of Windows...?

  5. @mara- Hmmm....I thought that was the case. Just a suggestion for you: Please add in very clear terms and very obvious text in your original (first page) post that your slipstreamer ONLY works with the Enterprise Edition (i.e. Volume License) version since that is the only version that supports running an Admin Install. Currently, there is nothing in your explanations that clearly indicates that other versions (i.e. retail versions) do not work. I noted in my original post that I had tried both the Pro and Std versions of O2K3 and that those did not work...which was a hint that the Enterprise Edition was probably all that was supported. MS literature notes that Admin installs are supported only on the Enterprise version. However...there is a technique which requires using "Orca" to edit the PRO11N.msi, or STD11N.msi, or other the relevant .msi to change certain switches such that admin installs can be performed. There are also some other techniques for slipstreaming SPs and hotfixes - you can find them here on MSFN. But, all of these are somewhat "messy" and require manual extractions and/or individual integrations. If you read through the forum posts you may be able to find a methodology to employ in your slipstreamer. For now apparently, the slipstreamer is only useful to those folks who have the Volume License Enterprise Edition. Thanks for replying to my posts.
  6. thx..already been there and have had some issues with it....left a message for mara- this morning....
  7. @siginet: I have been following several Office slipstream threads/procedures and I agree with you - this approach seems to be one of the better - and - one of the more convoluted due to the number of individual steps. I have seen your Office Integrator and am looking forward to seeing you develop it further after you put the finishing touches on V1.5 of Integrator (Great job there especially). A clean clear "simple" (KISS) tool is still needed on the Office slipstream front...
  8. @mara- Thanks for replying. I had tried running the slipstreamer using the CD as the source also...and had gotten the same error. I have done it again per your request and attached the screenshots. Thanks again for any help.
  9. @mara- I have been attempting to use your Slipstreamer and am consistently getting the following error: "Version you selected is not supported" The page 1 info does not clearly state any Office version limitations (or I missed it) so I have assumed (perhaps dangerously) this would permit slipstreaming SP3 into and earlier retail source version. I have tried with Office 2003 Pro and Office 2003 Std and gotten the same error when clicking the "Create Admin Install" button - I know that Microsoft only supports Admin installs from the Enterprise edition...so, I was assuming that your slipstreamer was working around that limitation...hence, the value of your tool. Does your Slipstreamer function only for the Enterprise Edition? If so then that explains the error message. If it works with Pro, Std, and other SKUs then I am at a complete loss as to how to use it. I would have thought that copying the entire CD to disk and selecting the setup file from that would have been the meaning of the first data box but, I must be too stupid to figure it out..... Thanks in advance for any guidance
  10. I believe a better course to follow than including IE7 and WMP11 in SP3 would be to provide either: 1) An alternative "SP3+" that does include them, or 2) Direct integration capability in IE7 and WMP11 that permitted slipstreaming into an SP2 or SP3 source Either approach leaves the choice available for the user rather than imposing a particular packaging philosophy on users. That being said, if forced to choose, I would without question choose to have them included rather than excluded.
  11. @Zedox One request: add the "Orb" as a Start button replacement option... Regardless - thanks for taking your time to prepare a delightful theme !!!
  12. Any comments on progress towards a stand-alone Darkside install...???
