Also what language are you running, by looking at you log file im assuming that you are running this for english.
i cant really say much else without the log files.

@buckeyeXP - I am pretty sure I had the newest version when I did it too... I'll download it again now anyway

I don't get a notice if it's done or not, and after an hour the process is still running. I check the office directory it's supposed to be target, it only has 6.76 mb there. Only the root and one setup.ini. Is there supposed to be a progress bar?

@Chris Lee: im glad that we figured out what the problem was with your's
@WadeV1589: Ill try to see what is going on with your's once i get those logs.
@Daniel304: Ok here is the thing... you are trying to run it for the dutch language, and i only have the english and spanish languages hard written into the program. If you follow the instructions on my post before the download you will see that you have to change the values of the shrink.ini inorder to get it to work. If that dosent work send me the log including office_task(000?).txt i dont really need office2.log.

It worked so to speak... it shrunk my office2003... the officeshrink process was still running in the background but I just killed it after a while.... I've tested the shrunken office and it installs fine and works too...

It is really to cover my behind. That way if it is a clean install of windows i dont have to figure out what isnt working.
@Chris Lee: i dont know what the deal is with your problem. i have never had that problem. Ill look into it further

when i made my Unattend.MST file, as part of the wizard I told it that I wanted it to remove completely any previous versions of office that were on the pc... maybe this is why mine worked even though i already had office xp installed?
anyway i'm very happy that you decided to release this tool buckeye... now everything I ever wanted fits onto a single 700mb cdr disc

g:\Office is my administrative install source
g:\Office2 I entered in office shrink as the output destination folder.
I am a dutch user!
