Office 2000/XP/2003/2007 Slipstreamer - Version 1.5.5 Final

Recommended Posts

Office 2000/XP/2003/2007 Slipstreamer, version 1.5.5


- Creating administrative installation of your Office (Enterprise edition required, limitation created by Microsoft, Retail users - to bypass it, look here);

- Slipstreaming service packs into your administrative Office installation;

- Slipstreaming hotfixes into your administrative Office installation (Internet connection not required, no any database required);

- Creating Chained Installations;

- Unblocking Outlook attachments;

- Unblocking blocked format in Office 2003 SP3.

Supported products:

- Microsoft Office 2000 (CD1 and CD2);

- Microsoft Office XP;

- Microsoft Project 2002;

- Microsoft Frontpage 2002;

- Microsoft Office 2003:

- Microsoft FrontPage 2003;

- Microsoft Visio 2003;

- Microsoft Project 2003;

- Microsoft OneNote 2003;

- Microsoft Office 2007.

New version is out, version 1.5.5. Read changelog for changes.

In this version Office 2007 support is added. This is not real slipstream, Service Packs and hotfixes will be just extracted to Updates folder. Process of slipstreaming is tested with Standard and Enterprise edition. In order to improve support for Office 2007, I need list of files of all Office 2007 editions (except Standard and Enterprise), so when you load your Office 2007 into Slipstreamer, in root folder of the tool will be created file "Office2007FileList.txt". To help me, please upload this file for me.

Also, this version provides enhanced product support, which should provide support for every Office product that Microsoft released in year 2002 and 2003. This could also provide support for future service packs (if any). Enhanced database creating will finally solve problems with WU/MU, since I do not need to create database.reg anymore. Everything will be now done automatically, and all info for hotfixes.reg will be written using informations from hotfix you are slipstreaming.

List of updates for making your Office 2003 System fully updated [download links included] :

Product included on the list:

- Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003;

- Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003;

- Microsoft Office OneNote 2003;

- Microsoft Office Project Professional 2003;

- Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2003.

If you have some problem, or you found bug, please post log when asking/reporting.

If your Antivirus detects Office Slipstreamer as malware, that is false positive.

Hi Mara

Tested v1.5 beta 4:

- Slipstreamed SP3 and hotfixes

- Integrated one patch with chained install

- Created new .MST for unattended install

- Installed unattended Office

- Checked with MS Update

Everything went very good except for one thing:

One character is wrong in the hotfix registry updates:

Currently it the Slipstreamer updates with:


Should be


Attaching the registry entries for Swedish Enterprise edition (suppose you have them since before).

Attaching an updated Swedish translation for v1.5 beta4.

Note that there are some minor cosmetic things that should be corrected for the translation support.

- Under File (main) there is an option, Delete log History, which is hardcoded I guess. It is not in the language file.

- Under Options and Help there are other options not represented in the language file.

- Field Product Informations is represented in the language file (L123) but showed in English after translation.

- Same with Edition Type (L122).

- Tried to change my translation of L76 but the old text is still showed.

Thanks for language update. And yes, you are correct, there is a small error with database writing. I already fixed it. I made an error with language file (English). Just move L123 and L122 under [Label]. And I'll check for "Delete log History" and other menus. New beta is probably out tonight.

Cheers ;)

EDIT: With L76 everything is fine. New English file is uploaded in first post. Some new words will not have effect until beta 5 is out, and beta 5 will be out in a few hours.

EDIT2: English file uploaded again. I forgot to add some lines.

Version 1.5 Final is out. I decided to go with final version instead of beta 5, since I think that all bugs are fixed. If anyone find some bug, I'll fix it, and new version will be immediately published.

Cheers ;)

Hi Mara

Tested v1.5 Final.

Two error occurences:

- The Registry update for KB943452 is wrong for the Swedish edition of Office 2003.

The slipstreamer updates with


Should be


- Chained Install didn't work. The Patch (Compatibility patch for Office 2007) was added to folder

\FILES\SEUP\ChainedInstall_1 correctly. This can also be seen in the log but the the patch wasn't

installed directly after Office.

This worked in v1.5 beta4.

Otherwise everything was perfect.

Attaching a new swedish translation based on v1.5 Final.

Cheers :rolleyes:

For the KB943452, I can not do anything, you will have to change it manually in database. Some updates like KB943452 are different because of language, but that is very rare.

And for the chain install is very strange, I did not change anything related to that. Can you try once more, just load same office into slipstreamer, use "Delete all" button and then add chain install again.

Cheers ;)

Pity with KB943452 but no problem, I'll add it manually.

Yes, it's strange with Chained Install. Now I have slipstreamed/installed Office twice with

same result; the patch is added to ChainedInstall_1 but not installed.

When I was doing these tests I noticed that the "Admin install location" is remembered by

the Slipstreamer but not always the "Product Key" when ticked.

Cheers :unsure:

Can you attach Setuppro.ini from FILES/SETUP after you add Chain Install, and attach for me few of your last logs?

Cheers ;)

Chain install is working fine. I told you to re-create it. Use "Delete all" button and then add again chained install. You don't need to do service pack and hotfix slipstream again, just do this with chained install.

Now, if you do a hotfix slipstream, then chained install needs to be added after slipstream is finished. Adding chained install don't depends on button "Start". As soon as you press button "Add" chain install is added. So, after you finish slipstream, then add chain install. This is necessary to do after slipstream because original SETUP.exe is moved to FILES/SETUP folder and other path is used, and because you added chain before slipstream (when original SETUP.exe was in root folder) path will become wrong after original SETUP.exe is moved to mentioned folder. I'll try implement some check for this so Slipstreamer automatically correct the path.

Cheers ;)

Actually I used "Delete all" button both times but your second phrase explains why it failed.

What I have done every time, except for yesterday, is to enter needed information tab by

tab (1st Slipstreamer input, 2nd ChainedInstall input with push on the Add button) and then

pressed Start in the first tab.

Good to know, will never happen again.

Good if you can do a check in the program for this. Also good if the panes could have som

brief information/guidelines about this.

Thanks a lot and cheers.

Glad that we cleared that. Thanks for all help and testings. Just if you did not noticed I gave you credit for help in About tab. I think that when I implement this check (I already made it, testing it now), additional informations about chain install won't be necessary.

Cheers ;)
