Then I added all the office source files and the .mst file to the SFX and typed in the comment field:
TempMode Setup=SETUP.EXE TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST /qn Silent=1 Overwrite=1
This will extract the files into a temporary directory, run the install commands, install it and then remove the temporary files. Which means it's a fully unattended and silent office 2003 installation package that fits easily on my cd. Just set RunOnceEx to run the executable, no commandlines needed.
Thanks for this great utility.
*EDIT* Got the size down by a few more megs.

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.

Which is what u need if u are going to use Frontpage 2003 for Corp or Enterprise use.
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)
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!)

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 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
