Here's my report;
Tested Slipstreamer v1.7 Beta 5 on my home PC - XP Pro SP3 with my OEM version of Office XP - SBE and selected the setup.exe directly from the CD, choose a destination and made sure the M$ Office Interop Infopath Semitrust dll option was checked (I don't what it is for, but it doesn't sound harmful.).
I selected OfficeXpSp3-kb832671-fullfile-enu.exe (from M$) and used a hotpack called SOI_Office10_PostSP3_HotPack_enu_0817.7z.
Selected Start and let it go. After about 45 minutes it was complete - no errors, great .
Selected Create ISO and got an ISO the same size as my original source, wow .
Used VirtualBox 1.6.4 and an already activated Virtual Machine with XP Pro SP2 to do a custom install using the ISO just created. I don't use Publisher and I disable the speech settings under Excel and Shared Components. Checked OU - no updates . Checked MU -KB885884 needed, which is a XP Pro SP2 issue.
All this brings me to a suggestion and a couple of questions.
Suggestion: Why not make the Create ISO a simple check box option and eliminate the "which button do I push 1st" problem?
Questions: 1. What does the M$ Office Interop Infopath Semitrust dll option do? (to lazy right now to do the research)
2. (and more importantly) I had quite some trouble trying to test my ISO because the VM is old (April 08) and I needed all kinds of OS updates. I updated to SP3 and for some reason lost my OS activation. Luckily I had a backup and only updated SP2 stuff afterwards, activated Office and then was able to check OU and MU. Is there a way to check for OU and/or MU updates without having the product activated? I still need to test an unattended install of Office (if it can be done with a OEM version).
