Office Shrinker [reduce source of o2k3/xp/2k]

buckeyeXP,

I actually get the same error as devilrunner. What I was trying to say in the first post is that, as you can see in the attached office.log, that there is a command run (Command Run: C:\office\final\SETUP.EXE...) from my "final" destination. If that is so, how should it find the files that gives the error? My source is located in the dir "Original".

that is exactly how the program works. It takes the missing file error and copies the file from the source to the target and moves to the next file.

Ok i think i figured out what is going on, but i dont have any way of testing it.

So let me know

@wghout: sorry if i came off as curt, u just caught me having a rough day at work. Let me know if this works for you.

If not........back to the drawing board.

maybe this can help you in making your program work for dutch users.

I am using a english OS and a dutch OF2k3.

In my last post I got a strange error box telling me that a file doesn't exist.

I checked my ini file and because I had an english OS I thought I change the error value to 'error' instead of the dutch 'Fout'.

This resulted in the disapearance of the strange error box and gave me a normal error.

@alhaddar: i dont know what version you have, but i think it was one of the first. Download the new one and try that. There shouldnt be any problems what so ever with the english version.

as far as the dutch version goes... still searching.

office shrink v2 gives an error it can't find files.. it seems to swap target and source dir. So I have to copy manually... I don't thin that is what has to happen ?!? (BTW Dutch Office 2k3)

Sorry forgot how the program works... well it isn't copying anything....

It gives error

Make sure File exists

.....

Even better is works only once then exits. It does copy one file and then stops and leaves the setup running

Office 2003 SP1 is out.

Anybody got a script or a gui like nuhis nLite to slipstream the SP1 into the Office CD? Slipstreaming Office SPs is not that easy like with Windows SPs. The Command Line is much longer and there are 3 command lines at least to update the Office CD Source.

But there are some good tutorials like here to get into it, so dont worry. Would just be interesting if anybody was diligent and code some easy using gui tool for slipstreaming :)

follow the instructions for Office and do it for Frontpage, OneNote, Project, & Visio.

you can use the Office SP1 patch for FrontPage.

some of the installs - Frontpage & Project need to patches. One for the program and the second one for the Web Components (Which is part of the Office SP patch).
