  • Slipstreaming Office 2003 Query -

    Hello -

    Read w/ great interest the instructions pertaining to slipstreaming SP2 into Microsoft Office. Wish to ask whether or not it is possible to create a slipstreamed disc that requires one to enter the product key upon initiating installation (as opposed to the license/product key integrated in the resulting slipstreamed disc)? Also, could someone please highlight the protocol and files needed in order to make the slipstreamed disc bootable? Thanks in advance.

    Why would you need Office to be bootable?

          As for the instructions in the URL indicated, the license key is integrated into the slipstreamed disc - could someone please provide instructions as to how to create a slipstreamed disc that prompts for the license key to be manually entered upon initiating installation of said slipstreamed software.

          Thanks again.

              I've just taken my "stupid" pill and it is working!!!!

              Read all I could about slipstreaming Office 2003, but nothing makes sense to me. The sticking point is that the file <setup.exe> is in the <x:\files\owc10> or <x:\files\owc11> folders, so how can the command <x:\setup.exe /a> work? It is unrecognisable to the system.

              I have installed Office from this CD and now I would like to slipstream it, but all my attempts have failed. I had to supply a <key> on installing it, but when experimenting with various variables to slipstream, it never asked me for a <key> and created 3 files.

              Can anyone please help?

              Thanks.

                Do you have the Administration version of Service Pack 2 or just the standard Service Pack 2?

                  Thanks for the answers/comments

                  1] Yes I have the Admin SP2 CD
                  2] When slipstreaming Office 2003 + SP2, how many files are created, please? In my first attempt, it only created 3 files. Is that correct?
                  3] In one article I read that I should not just copy the Office 2003 installation disk to the HDD. In another, it says I should!! What is right?
                  4] It would be preferable if, on insertion, it would <autorun>.

                  Thanks again.

                      I've only installed 3 components: Word, Excel, & Powerpoint.

                      Word : 11.6568.6568 SP2
                      Excel : 11.8012.6868 SP2
                      Ppt : 11.6564.6568 SP2.

                      Is this what you're after?

                      Thanks.
