buckeyeXP,

I actually get the same error as devilrunner. What I was trying to say in the first post is that, as you can see in the attached office.log, that there is a command run (Command Run: C:\office\final\SETUP.EXE...) from my "final" destination. If that is so, how should it find the files that gives the error? My source is located in the dir "Original".

that is exactly how the program works. It takes the missing file error and copies the file from the source to the target and moves to the next file.

Ok i think i figured out what is going on, but i dont have any way of testing it.
So let me know

@wghout: sorry if i came off as curt, u just caught me having a rough day at work. Let me know if this works for you.


If not........back to the drawing board.

maybe this can help you in making your program work for dutch users.

I am using a english OS and a dutch OF2k3.
In my last post I got a strange error box telling me that a file doesn't exist.
I checked my ini file and because I had an english OS I thought I change the error value to 'error' instead of the dutch 'Fout'.

This resulted in the disapearance of the strange error box and gave me a normal error.

@alhaddar: i dont know what version you have, but i think it was one of the first. Download the new one and try that. There shouldnt be any problems what so ever with the english version.


as far as the dutch version goes... still searching.

office shrink v2 gives an error it can't find files.. it seems to swap target and source dir. So I have to copy manually... I don't thin that is what has to happen ?!? (BTW Dutch Office 2k3)

Sorry forgot how the program works... well it isn't copying anything....

It gives error

Make sure File exists
1
.....
Even better is works only once then exits. It does copy one file and then stops and leaves the setup running

Office 2003 SP1 is out.

Anybody got a script or a gui like nuhis nLite to slipstream the SP1 into the Office CD? Slipstreaming Office SPs is not that easy like with Windows SPs. The Command Line is much longer and there are 3 command lines at least to update the Office CD Source.

But there are some good tutorials like here to get into it, so dont worry. Would just be interesting if anybody was diligent and code some easy using gui tool for slipstreaming :)

follow the instructions for Office and do it for Frontpage, OneNote, Project, & Visio.

you can use the Office SP1 patch for FrontPage.

some of the installs - Frontpage & Project need to patches. One for the program and the second one for the Web Components (Which is part of the Office SP patch).

Hi,

I just downloaded and tried to test it, it started fine, but all of a sudden during the process I got a nice error asking for a file, I even inserted the CD, and still kept asking me...

Please read the entire thread, with attention to all the big (if not the little) details.

It is clearly mentioned, that you need to make an Administrative Install Point of your CD, before using the shrinker.

I'm not that stupid, I did make an administration point, the problem was that the CDROM was I not X so I put cd and it continue ( but it shouldnt have asked ). But then again it finished very fast, and the office2003 dir was 7mb .... Totally lost.

Da der hier gepostete Office Shrinker für mich (Office 2003, deutsch) nicht wirklich funktioniert hat, habe ich selbst in Delphi einen geschrieben.

Sollte jemand mit der deutschen Version (keine Unterstützung für andere Sprachen) ähnliche Probleme haben, kann ich das Programm demjenigen zugänglich machen.

Ansonsten bin ich halt der einzige, bei dem es nicht ging ;)

---

English: Just informed that i recreated an Office Shrink Program in Delphi because the thing posted here does not work for me. As my program only works on German versions, I wrote the post in German too.
Best regards, Rogge
