  1. The following commands:



    somehow mess with the installation. They sure mess with the regional settings and maybe other stuff. I had set mine to Greek and when using these parameters, everything changed back to English(United States) and Greek disappeared completely from the installed windows. Without these parameters everything works smoothly.

    (Thanks to the flawless Trial & Error method for finding this)

  2. I have completed my unattended dvd for windows 32-bit and was giving a go to windows 64-bit.

    I made the same steps but i have trouble with the regional options. In particual, if i choose greek on all options(with n-lite) the greek language is not even installed. Then, when i test my dvd office says the language i am trying to install is not supported by the OS and doesnt install :/.

    Two things:

    1) By comparing the two WINNT.SIF between the 32-bit DVD and the 64-bit one, they are identical(except the cd-key of course...). THe 32-bit version works great

    2) When i install the 64-bit version unattended without regional specification or normally(non-unattended) the greek language is installed, although obviously not preselected.

    The WINNT.SIF is this:

    ; Generated by nLite 1.4.1





    CustomDefaultThemeFile="%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\My Theme (nL).theme"



    Language= "0408"





  3. i removed RunWPI.exe and used this which uses nlite.cmd
    for /f "tokens=3" %%i IN ('reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup /v "SourcePath" ^| findstr "REG_SZ"') do set SOURCE=%%i


    and worked :D


    Hey can you explain exactly what you did?

    I deleted RunWPI.exe and replaced it with a RunWPI.cmd file that contained your script. Then on cmdlines.txt i changed the entry "RunWPI.exe" with "RunWPI.cmd". Is this correct?

    Also about your order issues. Make sure when configuring an application on WPI that you set the order number on the top right box. I used full numbers meaning 000005 instead of 5, 000015 instead of 15 etc.... Also on the options menu uncheck the option "Install by Category".

    How come i dont have these registry keys?

  5. Hey again. I found some information you might find interesting. With the method which you copy the language pack files on the installation point:

    Create a config.xml at the same directory as setup.exe:

    <Configuration Product="Enterprise">

    <AddLanguage Id="en-us" ShellTransform="yes"/>
    <AddLanguage Id="el-gr" />


    With these commands i add english-us and make them the language the Shell will use and i also add greek. You would probably only need the first line since you only deal with english. With the same command you add any language you want.

    Then the installation is unattended :). Meaning you just create the .msp file with the /admin command, you choose from options that also include everything the language pack has and you just run setup like if you didn't have any language pack in the first place.

    That way you don't need autoIT script.

  6. Ok, so to clarify because i might have confused you.

    I copy paste all language pack files to the root directory of my installation(See left side of the screenshot on post directly above). Setup realises that, and offers the options shown on the screenshot on the top post. It also changes what options you have when you click to install the main program!

    Therefore you are able to install everything at once, but the only problem is that the message prompting you to choose what to install(top post screenshot) will always occur. A script that just clicks next at the right time is all that is needed.

    At least i think so :/

    I understand what your script does, but i think there is a better way for you too : ).

  7. Check my edited post.

    Also here is a screeshot for that:


    This is the main point of the installation which has new options once you copy paste everything. I think you can do the same thing and not have to run a second installer, just a small script to press Alt+N at the right time.

    Also, if you do that, then the updates will launch after everything is installed and will also update the proofing tools(the main service pack 1 contains the fixes for languange packs as well).

  8. I mean the Update folder from office 2007, the one you drop all update file in and then they are automatically installed during installation.

    You know, the new method microsoft thinks it's really good, but in reality takes more space and more time.

    Wait, unless i am missing something. I need to copy some file from the language pack to the installation point right? Then i edit the xml as you said, and then i use the AutoIt script?

    edit: As i see on the script, keystrokes are send to click next for the program to begin. I didn't know you could do that. If you can do it there is an easier way to make the installation. As i already mentioned if you copy paste all Language pack files on the source of your silent installation point and then run

    setup.exe /admin

    then you have the ability to choose stuff from both packs at once!

    I was able to do that without needing to run a second installer, i just needed a way to get that "Next" clicked.

    So what script do i need to press "next"?

  9. I have already created my Silent Office 2007 installation. I just came across a language pack for my native language(greek) and i am trying to install that silently too. I actually only want the Proofing Tools.

    1) Direct Method

    (based on info found on the MS Resource center)

    Copy paste the language files on the installation source directory. No overwrites occur(except 2-3 files which are essentially exactly the same). If i run setup normally(no switches etc) i get the message on the screenshot attached and continue the Installation normally and everything is good. However, when i create an *.MSP file to make the installation silent, i still get prompted to choose and until i click next the installation pauses. So i can't figure out a way to get rid of that message.


    2) Indirect Method

    Install Office 2007 normally with my already created installation which has been tested and works great, and then apply the language pack. However, there is no way to customize the installation the same way as office is, not even make it silent. I copied some files from the office 2007 to enable the /admin command but that does't work either.

    3) Alternative Method

    I tried to somehow add the proofing tools to the original installation, by copying the appropriate files and editing .xml but that didn't work either. Setup said there were no applications to install and didn't even start the process.

    Any ideas? : )
