Two thoughts:

1. Have you ran Office Shrinker in a clean environment?

2. Did you change your "shrink.ini" to match italian language?

JS

Fraizzo:

If that is your .ini file, it must be wrong for sure.

You have to replace

retry=&Retry

and

error=Error

for the same word in italian.

Have you read this post?

Just execute the attached file and you will see a box with two buttons: "retry" and "cancel" in your OS language. Use the word on the left.

It's just a simple Autoit script:

MsgBox(5,"Retry in Italian","")

Unfortunately I can't figure out how to create an error message with Autoit, so that you can see the equivalent of "error" in your OS language. Maybe one of our Autoit masters could help ;)

Retry_in_italian.exe

Well... I tried to do all the steps, but when I got in the 17 step (the last) of the Office Resource Kit (I'm using the Office 2k) I can't change the command of the instalation (setup.exe TRANSFORMS="C:\Office 2000\Unattended.MST" /qn+). When I try to delet or modify them nothing happens...

Thanks.

It's not there that you have to change that command. That field in ORK is not changeable, it's just an example. You just have to click the exit button and it's all done.

You have to change it in the batch that will execute the Office installation, get it?

Well, as there has been 7 people that downloaded my autoit script in here, I upload now a new autoit script that will tell you the 2 words that you need to replace for Office Shrinker to work in any non-english language: "retry" and "error".

I made it just to improve my autoit knowledge.

Enjoy
