don't slipstream, because you have to do this with every new published update, because you are not able to install updates any more. Just install all update silently after installing Office 2003 with integratet SP2.

you may be lucky, can you provide the slipstream command you used if it is to hand

i have found this to be so and it is mentioned in a few other threads that this is a side effect, though they are in teh office section

I followed the unattended guide at unattended.msfn.org. The exact place where the guide is here.

so how did it go? I followed the link's instruction but mine shows the update on the website as well

*weird. MS Update shows 9 hotfixes, while Office update shows none.

Hi

I'm just wondering if anyone else has an issue with running office setup directly from a CD/DVD,

Because after i slipstreamed the August 2006 updates Office will no longer install direct from my DVD no longer but prior to these august updates it would install fine from my DVD.

I now have to copy the install to my HDD then run setup for it to install, How could this be after all i have'nt had a problem until now ?

I used the MSFN office slipstreaming guide to create my SP2 with all updates installation.

Anybody else had this problem ?

Thanks

I just finished researching this problem a couple of days ago. You might want to take a look at this thread for more information on the problem:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=75673

Look at post #14 for your answer. Based on this, I just slipstream SP2 and then apply the other patches during the UA install.

I made something of a frankenstein cd. (same method could be used for runonceex, or whatever method you use for installing switchless installers.

First I slisptreamed service packs into office 2003, then downloaded all 9 updates and extracted them. I repacked them with wirar .sfx (setting to extract to temp folder, and run the XXX.msp /passive /norestart.)

I then placed all 9 (repacked) updates into the folder with office.

My start.cmd is

cmdow @ /hid

Start /Wait PRO11.MSI /qb-!
start /wait office2003-KB907417-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB913807-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB914455-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB916518-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB917334-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB918419-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB920103-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB920907-FullFile-ENU.exe
start /wait office2003-KB921566-FullFile-ENU.exe

EXIT

I then deleted the original setup.exe, made an au3 script and compiled to Setup.exe

Run("start.cmd")

and then, the autorun.inf

[AutoRun]
open=Setup.exe

After installing xp, I just throw this cd in (or mount the image) and let it run.

Granted, my cd is 680mb, but I actually prefer this method because it takes so long to extract office (using the 7zip switchless installer method.)

Same here, but I get rid of those awful long file names:

KB907417.exe is much easier to type than office2003-KB907417-FullFile-ENU.exe

:lol:

All the hotfixes released by MS have MSI files inside them. Extract these files and run this command for integrating the hotfixes

msiexec /p x:\blah..\blah..\patch.msp /a y:\abc...\blah...\pro11.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb-

This way the entire sp2 and updates thereafter can be integrated.

Note: The entire office 2003 package have to be transformed into a network install source prior to slipstreaming the updates. To do this, make a folder on a drive with reasonable amount of space available and, call it, say, c:\Office. Open Start, Run. Type cddrive:\office11\setup.exe /a

Follow the instructions for an admin install. :rolleyes:

Another issue not addressed by MS is that MS Update does not recognise the updates being applied eventhough they are, whereas office update does. MS has recognised is lacuna but has not done anything so far. So if you want to keep MS Update happy, re-run the updates after install.
