I added another option for the language support. I overlooked the fact that the word for "Error" changes in different languages and fixed that.
It should work fine for the Dutch language now. Devilrunner... im looking at you for conformation on that.
I also think i came up with a simple solution for those of you that shrink does not close for.
The file is in the first post.

2.)Run Office Shrink(It is pretty self explanitory)
@devilrunner: I dont know why it would do that. try running it again. The thing that dosent make sense to me is that the file on the error and the file on the log are different. If there was a problem copying they would be the same. Try copying G:\OFFICE2\FILES\PFILES\MSOFFICE\OFFICE11\MSAEXP30.DLL manually and rerunning office shirnk.

I've read through previous postings and run into the same error as devilrunner.
When I put some extra info in the shrink.ini file where it says "Office setup EXE=SETUP.EXE" into "Office setup EXE=c:\office\original\SETUP.EXE" I get an error telling me "Execution not succesful. Command Run: C:\office\final\c:\office\original\SETUP.EXE TRANSFORMS=unattended.MST /qb FAILED"
Is this this perhaps a hard coded problem that is pointing to the "Final" instead of the "Original" directory. Although when I run the utility originally, I get the error on every file it would place in the "Final" place. So you have to start "Shrink_lang" over and over again. Every time the error occured, the file is actualy placed in its destination directory.

Delete you shrink.ini file and run the program with out it.
If you are trying to get another language to work. delete it and run without, then change only the language settings and rerun.

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".

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.

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
