IMPORTANT NOTE: use ONLY your own Office2003 distribution


According: http://www.msfn.org/...php/t28820.html and http://www.msfn.org/...o...1&hl=office I just tested eryen idea to delete some registry from pro11.msi .
So, after that I can install Office 2003 at T13 (with cab/svcpack !).

My solution :
1. Slipstream Office 2003 kit with SP3
2. Install admin version into fresh virtual machine (providing your serial number, user and company)with setup.exe /a and save all into new Office 2003 folder
3. Modify Office setup with Microsoft Office Resurce Kit and generate a NEW setup.MST file:
- run: Custom Instalation Wizard from Microsoft Office Resurce Kit
- point them to PRO11.msi
- make all changes for packets to be installed/removed
- IMPORTANT: at 12/24 step choose “ Remove Registry Entry” tab and select Add and complete next form with:

• Root: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
• Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW\Installed
• Value Name: DW0200


4. Choose OK and Finsih and save your new *.MST as setup.MST into your Office2003 setup folder.
5. Create a SFX archive using WinRar and select SFX option :
• Into “Run After extraction” write : setup.exe /wait TRANSFORMS=setup.mst /qn
• In modes tab check: Unpack to temp folder, Hide all, Overwrite all
• Save your archive as office 2003.exe

6. make new Add-on cab with NLITE ADD-ON MAKER and chose to execute your SFX archive (office2003.exe-created at step 5)
7. Insert your add-on with NLITE as new hotfix and create a new XPCD image !

Thank you for this guide, it works perfectly
Only thing that was hard to figure out when you've never done it before was creating the SFX file
but once you figure out to add all the files off the office folder in the tab (which was not mentioned in the guide)
then you're on your way

5. Create a SFX archive using WinRar and select SFX option :
• Into “Run After extraction” write : setup.exe /wait TRANSFORMS=setup.mst /qn
• In modes tab check: Unpack to temp folder, Hide all, Overwrite all
• In files tab ''select all your office 2003 folder content''
• Save your archive as office 2003.exe

Again. Thank you - Well done.

Great guide!

I just thought it would be nice to share my idea that just struck me.
I needed my addon to get a smaller final size to fit in my XPCD. My Office CD is in swedish so I couldn't use the "office shrinker".

Here's what I did:
1. Copy the Office2003 setup folder (after nr. 4 in post 1) to a shared folder that you use with your virtual environment (virtualbox, vmware...)
2. Install Office2003 from the setup folder in your shared folder (using the commands described in (5) in post 1) in your virtual environment.
3. When the install is complete, search for all files (*.*) in the Office2003 setup folder and check the last accessed time on the files.
4. Delete all files that weren't accessed at the time of the Office2003 install!
5. Continiue at (5) in post 1!

Tested and working!
My addon just shrunk from 206mb to 112mb! :D

Edit: The addon worked flawlessly :)
Edit2: Tried to clear things out, my writing sucks :thumbdown

Great guide!

I just thought it would be nice to share my idea that just struck me.
I needed my addon to get a smaller final size to fit in my XPCD. My Office CD is in swedish so I couldn't use the "office shrinker".

Here's what I did:
1. Make a fresh customised install (using the commands described in the above post) in a new WinXP Install in virtualbox or vmware.
2. After that check the last accessed time using a search for all files in the installfolder.
3. Delete all files that weren't accessed!

I haven't tested the addon yet, but I made a successfull install on a fresh WinXP install!

My addon just shrunk from 206mb to 112mb!

Edit: The addon worked flawlessly

Good idea.Can you give us more details how can you seperate last accessed files from installation source? Is it easy?

You shouldn't have any problems if you know how to handle a virtual environment :)

Heh!

You CAN use Office Shrinker with ANY language!

Simply modify lines in shrinker ini that are for Retry and Cancel (IIRC) to your language
b&lah_blah
bu&mbum

AND PUT & before the letter that is used for shortcut (disable "hide underscore until i press ALT" in prosperities od desktop / looks / effects to check which ones!)

In example above it would be
"l" and "m"
