New version is out, version 1.5.5. Read changelog for changes.
In this version Office 2007 support is added. This is not real slipstream, Service Packs and hotfixes will be just extracted to Updates folder. Process of slipstreaming is tested with Standard and Enterprise edition. In order to improve support for Office 2007, I need list of files of all Office 2007 editions (except Standard and Enterprise), so when you load your Office 2007 into Slipstreamer, in root folder of the tool will be created file "Office2007FileList.txt". To help me, please upload this file for me.
Also, this version provides enhanced product support, which should provide support for every Office product that Microsoft released in year 2002 and 2003. This could also provide support for future service packs (if any). Enhanced database creating will finally solve problems with WU/MU, since I do not need to create database.reg anymore. Everything will be now done automatically, and all info for hotfixes.reg will be written using informations from hotfix you are slipstreaming.
