Using the instructions below...

download and install 7-zip

2)
put the
startX.exe in the folder c:\officeshrinker

3)
create a setup.cmd file
setup.cmd is that:
CODE
@echo off
setup.exe transforms=yoyo.mst /qb-

yoyo.mst is the name of your mst file
and put your setup.cmd in the folder c:\officeshrinker

4)
select all files and directories of the folder c:\officeshrinker (setup.cmd,startx.exe+all other files and directories ) right click "add to archive"
in the option window,choose "ultra" compression
after a few minutes,you get your officeshrinker.7z

5)
put in another directory
=>officeshrinker.7z
+
=>7zS.sfx (found in c:\program files\7zip if you can't find this file,then try to install the 3.13 version of 7zip)
+
=>a config.txt with that in this config.txt:

CODE;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="startx /wait setup.cmd"
;!@InstallEnd@!

+
=>a finalization file (finalization.cmd) with that in :
CODE
copy /b 7zS.sfx + config.txt + officeshrinker.7z officeshrinker.exe



6)
double click on the finalization.cmd and then you get the officeshrinker.exe witch is THE file !!!


7)
if you want to test,just execute (double click) on this officeshrinker.exe,everything should be


...I've created switchless installer for office2003. However, when executed, it pops up a black CMD window to run the install command in (setuppro.exe transforms=unattended.....)

Is there any way I can stop this window appearing without giving it the exit command (which I suspect would allow setup of windows to continue even though XP hasn't finished installing),

Hello,

Well, sadly this does not work for me either.

First off, it's werid...

Well, you see if I just run setup like normal from the dir. then it installs fine. That is after Windows is already installed. Same goes for running it via the command line.

But running it via gui-run-once or RunOnceEx fails....

Only two errors are reported via Event Viewer:

Well, as you can see its looking for "C:\install\Office2003\FILES\PFILES\COMMON\MSSHARED\SRCENG\OSE.EXE" .

The entire SRCENG folder does not even exist within MSSHARED.

I do not understand this at all. :( Any ideas?

And the second error just for kicks. :P

Update:

Well, I fixed it. :)

For some reason two files are missing from the compacted Office 2003 SP2 folder, that is after running the tool on the first page.

See once I add the OSE.EXE as menitioned in above error you then get this error when you try and install again:

So now copy this LCCWIZ.DLL file to the correct dir as mentioned in the error.

Now it installs fine. :)

Hello,

Yes I am running in English Windows XP SP2 in Virtual Machine. A new install, so no office ever installed.

After doing what I wrote above it installed fine running setup in Windows :)

Now the problem is trying to get it to install in Win2K SP4.

Missing at least seven files I see at the moment.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1309. Error reading from file: D:\FILES\PFILES\COMMON\MSSHARED\DW\DWDCW20.DLL.   System error 3.  Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1309. Error reading from file: D:\FILES\WINDOWS\INF\AER_1033.ADM.   System error 3.  Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1309. Error reading from file: D:\FILES\PFILES\COMMON\MSSHARED\DW\1033\DWINTL20.DLL.   System error 3.  Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1308. Setup cannot find the required file D:\FILES\PFILES\COMMON\MSSHARED\DW\DWTRIG20.EXE.  Check your connection to the network, or CD-ROM drive.  For other potential solutions to this problem, see D:\FILES\PFILES\MSOFFICE\OFFICE11\1033\SETUP.CHM.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1308. Setup cannot find the required file D:\FILES\SYSTEM\INKED.DLL.  Check your connection to the network, or CD-ROM drive.  For other potential solutions to this problem, see D:\FILES\PFILES\MSOFFICE\OFFICE11\1033\SETUP.CHM.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1308. Setup cannot find the required file D:\FILES\PFILES\COMMON\MSSHARED\INK\INKOBJ.DLL.  Check your connection to the network, or CD-ROM drive.  For other potential solutions to this problem, see D:\FILES\PFILES\MSOFFICE\OFFICE11\1033\SETUP.CHM.

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 -- Error 1308. Setup cannot find the required file D:\FILES\PFILES\COMMON\MSSHARED\INK\GDIPLUS.DLL.  Check your connection to the network, or CD-ROM drive.  For other potential solutions to this problem, see D:\FILES\PFILES\MSOFFICE\OFFICE11\1033\SETUP.CHM.

Would be a lot easier if it told me all the files missing at install instead of only the first during install. Good be 1000 files missing and only way to find is keeping trying the install over and over and over while adding the one missing file that event viewer shows from each install. :( Got to be an easier way, no?

Take Care,

Will

Hi, I think this app is an excellent idea but it's just not working for me. I'm using a fresh virtual machine with xp pro sp2.

My problem is that it dosn't seem to copy any files. It let's me configure everything just fine however right after I press the button to let it start I get the Shrinkage allready complete message, long before it has copyed anything.

Looking in the office.log file I can see a chained install return code:1603. I think that is the problem right there but I'm not sure. Any help would be grately appriciated.

I somehow fixed the problem by applying a windows update. Don't know which but it seems to be working now. So that's really cool but my next question is can I shrink proofing tools? I tried using office shrinker but it didn't seem to work.

Oke here is nice Q:
> Does office shrinker also support other MSI(-like) packages, (open office for example)

and if not, why, and how mutch would it take to add support for it,

i already have been able to work out the MST file to auto setup OOo to leave out components, leaving it out could well save me about, 40 to 50mb

please advice

Would be nice to see an update of the shring office script, gotta love it anyway.
I've noticed 3 things:1. When Outlook filter isn't integrated, sometimes no go, thing backs up.2. Depending on the MST you've made, results varry.3. When you re-run shrink_lang02.exe a second time, it presents a different completion notice displaying time to completion. The resulting file has a better chance of finishing setup.

The broken links are also causing me to struggle. You need Office Resource Kit (aka ORK) to create the MST file. I found it on another site. I just uploaded it. Download it here.

I have a couple questions myself. I managed to figure out how to make the Unattended.MST file with ORK. I ran Office Shrink and it even installed Office 2003 perfectly. But with a very small snag. In the middle of the process, it popped up with a small dialog box and simply said "broken". Weird. But it installed fine. Other thing to note: no matter how much I remove, the final output folder ends up being exactly 290 MB every time. Furthermore, when I try to install it on another computer, it asks for a serial # (that was configured in the MST files and worked on the original computer). But I got my hopes up that I can make this work. It works one time on the original machine almost perfectly. I'm sure if we had the guides, we could work out all the bugs.

Can anyone point us in the right direction? I have searched for answers on this site. I've gone pretty far back in the posts with no luck. Like finding a needle in a haystack. :}
