acatalin started following Information about OS components needed by Microsoft Office
acatalin posted a topic in Microsoft Office 97-2016Hi. I'm trying to make tutorials for virtualizing Microsoft Office 2003/2007/2010 (so everyone could make their own legal portable version). I thought of including also information about some OS components which are required for Office to work properly but sometimes are removed using nlite/vlite/rt7lite or other tools. If it's possible, even how to add those OS components to the virtualized Office so it could start on an OS with those components removed. For example, MS Agent needed for Office 2003 Assistant. I had to create a Windows XP version without MS Agent (using nlite), I virtualized Office 2003 on it installing MS Agent and now that Office Assistant works fine in any OS >= XP. I wasn't sure if I should ask here or in the "Unattended Windows Discussion & Support" or nlite/vlite/rt7lite sections. But I tried here... helps a little but I think there are much more. I hope that somebody could help me with such information. Thank you in advance. Best regards, Catalin
