Should this work with Frontpage 2003, or are there any similar tools for frontpage? Having trouble, I tried running this script on it, but it quit after a few moments, and the installer reported an error (corrupted files, I think, it ran fine without the script), and my O2k3 SP1 is @135mb, frontpage2k3 SP1 alone is 354mb :wacko:

note: I do not use frontpage myself, I realize how absolutely terrible it is. this cd is for a lab in a building where a frontpage-based web design class is taught.

yeah, but that's after 7zip, I'm talking about source. Anyways, I did some crazy crap and copied the frontpage 2003 folder into the office 2003 folder, here's the result (for anyone interested):

Office: 135mb (after shrink script)
FrontPage: 354mb
Office+FrontPage: 425mb
then all you need to do is create a simple batch file with the commands, rar sfx it, and set that to extract to a temp folder and execute the batch.
final size (winrar sfx): 192mb (which fits on my cd with 16mb to spare!)

Hi, this office shrink is great, but i have a problem, not with shrink process though, that works fine.

i`m trying to get my shrunk office installed from start.cmd using a rar sfx which is set to run setup.exe after extraction.
Problem is start.cmd does`nt wait for office to install, it caries on installing my other apps after office has extracted. so i end up with office installing at the same time as my other apps which causes some of them not to install properly or at all.

I hope you can understand all that :blink: what i need is a way to halt my .cmd file while office installs. a work around is to put "pause" in the .cmd but then its not an unattended install.
this has get me well and truly stuck any sudgestions are welcome.
attatched my start.cmd if it will help

Cheers

I'm having yet again another problem with my shirnked Office XP installation.

Here are the files it ask for that are missing:

....\Files\pfiles\common\system\OLEDB\msolap80.dll
....\Files\pfiles\common\system\OLEDB\msdmeng.dll
....\Files\pfiles\common\system\OLEDB\msdmine.dll

....\Files\Windows\fonts\wingdng3.ttf
....\Files\system\fm20.dll (at this point it gives me the choice of "retry" or "Cancel")

What do i have to do to make this work...there seems to be always something removed by the shrinker that Office needs in order to install. This has happen in the past with other files (i've posted the problem in this thread), and my shrinking of office is done in a VMware machine with no office installed.

Let me know if i need to post my unattended files for Offcie or my settings for my CD made with nlite.

Thx in advance
