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

679 posts in this topic

@iwod: This will not work for other languages of office. i tried to implement support for other languages to no avail, so as of right now it will not work.

as for everybody else, the version that is up will work for Office 2000, Office XP, and Office 2003. The only problem with it is that it may quit prematurely. So to overcome that just run it a couple of times to make sure that all of the necessicary files are copied over. I was trying to find a way to fix that problem but there has been no time and it is not a huge problem.

I hope it is working well for everybody, let me know of any questions.

REMEMBER:

  • Works best if run on clean system
  • Only works for english versions
  • May need to run more than once

I just tried it out with Office2003 to install only word and excel and it worked.

The first time I tried it it didnt work. So I did a fresh install of windows and ran it again and then and it worked.

It gave we loads of file not found errors but I am assume this is normal.

Thanks for the shrink app BuckeyeXP, very much appreciated.

Buckeye,

When you say "works best on clean install", you mean a bare windows xp with no added programs right?

Just asking cause i use my unattended disc to setup my test pc and was wondering if i needed to pull out my original xpsp1 cd.

@exodia: If you are planning on installing office on that unattended install then that would be fine. You shouldnt have to use a plain sp1 install.

I just finished this up today. I fixed the problem with it stopping. It should stop when all of the files are copied over. I think i finally got everything to work.

Let me know what you guys think.

@alhaddar: What exactly is the problem... According to that log file everything went as it was supposed to. I need to know what the problem is and i also need the other log files. It will create three logs.

The one you gave me is the first one that the MS installer creates.

Then Shrink Office creates a log called "office.log" There is also another log file called "office2_Task(0001).txt."

-office.log

-office2.log

-office2_Task(0001).txt

Most importantly i need to know what i am looking for.

Judging by your log file. You didnt even use Office Shrink to generate it.

You cannot use the office shrink program if office is already installed. I still dont understand what the problem is.... :)
