there is a way to get many of the hotfixes (not all, but nearly all). The program c't Offline Updater downloads directly from Microsoft the updates, including Windows XP, Vista, Server 2k3 and 2k8 and it even supports office. The english article can be found here: http://www.h-online.com/security/Do-it-you.../features/80682
it links to the english project page, but that page doesn't have the current version 5.2 that includes the IE8, on the german project page you can find the current version: http://www.heise.de/ct/Offline-Update--/projekte/133634
I got the same problem with the german lang pack, you can extract the .msu and try to integrate the .cab file, but that doesn't seem to work either. I tried it several times and always get a bluescreen after the installation
If you find a way to integrate the lp please tell me
Extracting the exe and msu files is no problem, there is a pretty good tutorial on how to slipstream the IE8 on IEBlog: http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2008/06/2...eaming-ie8.aspx5. Extract and expand the MSU file
From the IE8 exe file:
* To extract the MSU, in the command prompt run this <IE8.exe path> /x: <folder you want the MSU to be placed>. For example: c:\Slipstreaming\IE8x86en\IE8-WindowsVista-x86-enu.exe /x: c:\Slipstreaming\IE8x86en
* To expand the MSU, in the command prompt run this expand.exe <path to the IE8.MSU> -F:* <pkg folder>. For example: expand.exe c:\Slipstreaming\IE8x86en\IE8.MSU -F:* c:\Slipstreaming\pkg
With the help of that I have been able to integrate the english IE8, but I get problems with integrating the IE8 to a german Vista.
Has anyone been able to slipstream a non-english IE8?
The next thing I'll try is using Vlite to integrate the IE.
Can't integrate ie8 to vista dvd
Already tried that, but i still get the Bluescreen while booting
