I was wondering if one could make a Office that will work on most system. So that we don't have to remake our office everytime we slipstream update / or make changes to the disc?

using WinRAR for each of the 5 individual install routines, for unattended CD/DVD

342 MB (359,617,479 bytes)

and I'm sure if I didn't make 5 individual WinRAR SFX packages it would be even smaller, but this way I can have seperate installers for different situations.

Thanks a ton for your time and effort with OfficeShrink! Only problems I encountered were with FrontPage/OneNote/Project/Visio and an xml file that made the installer think it was corrupted. Copied the xml files over to the proper directory in the target and tried it again, and it worked just fine. Woot!

I was thinking, If i make a Office Shrink on a heavy Nlited CD. ( virtuall everything apart from IE ) Then shouldn't in theory this office include all the extras you need to install office. And therefore work on most system?

Strange enough I get an error message containg the following :

Could not locate language file amslng.9

I selected the correct source directory :

D:\Office (where all cd source files are located)

And output directory :

D:\OfficeShrinked

I try to do a shrink from a clean winxp install within vmware.

Conclusion is the program halts on the error and doesn't contnue shrinking.

ANy suggestions are very welcome.

Hey Buckeye,

I'm glad to see that your script has help so many people. I'm still having trouble. I'm using a fresh install of WinXP on VMWare. No programs have been installed at all.

When I run the script imediately I get this message: "For imformation on usage and command line parameters, see Setup.htm"

Then office shrink appears to be doing it's thing. At the end I get I get a "Complete" dialog box that tells:

Time to Complete: 7min

New Space on disk: 7 MB

Number of files copied: 0

Here are my log files:

EDIT: I had a space in my destination folder name (c:\office shrunk). When I took the space away (c:\officeshrunk) it worked great. Thanks for the help buckeye.
