Regarding some ‘office’ hot fixes

Recommended Posts

I tried to slip a couple of hot fixes, KB969618 & KB970059, by just adding them in with the rest of my hot fixes. Didn’t work. Then tried using the nlite addon maker with the following switches: /passive /quiet /norestart . Didn’t work. I have extracted same, and there is a “.msp” file extension. I saw somewhere that I could use the switch: /qb- , however, the nlite addon maker does not recognize this file extension in order to make the cab. The only reason I need these is because I am using the powerpoint viewer 2007 SP2. I don’t have “office” as such, only as it pertains to this ’viewer’. I did see some rather complex scripts, but I’m not smart enough to go that route. If that’s all there is, so be it, I can always add them in after words.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Eddie

Thanks for replying, ChiefZeke,

however, as I mentioned, I don't have an "office suite" program. I only use the powerpoint viewer 2007, for when people send me emails that you need a powerpoint viewer to see. I looked at this "office integrator v1.1", but again, it won't let me "do" anything because I don't have an "office suite". I was able to add the service pack 2 and the two hotfixes but without an "office suite" you can not proceed.

I was wondering if maybe I could use the write up " Making A 7-Zip Switchless Installer " from here: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/to...less-installer/ and then using the result to make an nlite addon

Sticking the result with the rest of my regular hotfixes.

Maybe there just isn't an easy way.

Office Integrator can build Office viewers, and slipstream relevant hotfixes too, see tab: Config 2.

O.K., Thanks for the assistance, Beats,

It seems to have worked, I now have an ".msi & reg file", and per the following:

The msi and reg file created with this function can either be used as a standalone installer to individually install the separate Compatibility Pack or viewers or they can be added to the Chained Install list and deployed with the main Office installation

Soooo, if I can figure out the silent switch for the "ppviewer.msi", (maybe /qb) I can add it as a hotfix, and then apply the "ppviewer.reg" file after the slipsteam installation. Does this seem correct?

Thanks again,

Eddie

PS: I do have an $OEM$/$1/Install "folder" that I put my 'tweaks.reg' file in, but I don't know how to create a command to install other tweaks = regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\Install\tweaks.reg

Could it be as simple as = regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\Install\ppviewer.reg

The switch for silent installation of the MSI is indeed /qb.

Create a file named cmdlines.txt and place it in the $OEM$ root (thus not in any sub directory).

The syntax for cmdlines.txt (for your viewer and the reg file) is:

[COMMANDS]
"$1\Install\ppviewer.msi /qb"
"regedit /s $1\Install\tweaks.reg"

Additional information about cmdlines.txt can be found here. ;)

Sorry for my ignorance, but was:

"regedit /s $1\Install\tweaks.reg"

supposed to be:

"regedit /s $1\Install\ppviewer.reg"

And do I assume correctly that "both" the "ppviewer.msi" & the "ppviewer.reg" are to be placed in my $1\Install folder. And the 'cmdlines.txt' in the root of $OEM$.

Thanks again for your help
