Office 2003 + Win98

Recommended Posts

I found a way to install Office 2003 in Win98.

Setup now works, but none of the programs can run because of missing dependencies in MSO.DLL:

ADVAPI32.DLL

- CheckTokenMembership

- ConvertSidToStringSidA

- ConvertSidToStringSidW

- ConvertStringSecurityDescriptorToSecurityDescriptorW

- DecryptFileW

- EncryptFileW

- LsaClose

- LsaNtStatusToWinError

- LsaOpenPolicy

- LsaRetrievePrivateData

- LsaStorePrivateData

KERNEL32.DLL

- VerSetConditionMask

- VerifyVersionInfoW

USER32.DLL

- GetLastInputInfo

- SetLayeredWindowAttributes

-------------------

To install Office, you (may) need:

- Win98SE

- Gape Service Pack v3.0 beta 4

- MDGx 98SE2ME 2-14-2009

- Xeno86 KernelEx v4.0 Final 2

(thank you all)

- Orca (MSI editor)

- Office 2003 Professional Setup

How to install:

- Copy Office CD in a new directory on HDD.

- Open PRO11.MSI with Orca.

- Delete these lines:

InstallExecuteSequence \ CheckOperatingSystem

InstallUISequence \ CheckOperatingSystem

SecureObjects \ InjectorService (2 lines)

- If KernelEx is disabled by default, open Registry Editor, navigate to HKLM\Software\KernelEx\AppSettings\Flags and add a new DWORD value:

*\MSI*.TMP = 0

- Doubleclick PRO11.MSI to install.

If everything is ok, setup will install Office with no errors. Too bad it can't run, but I hope this problem can be fixed too. :hello:

Hmm doesnt work fore me but maybe ill try abit more later when i have less stuff to do.

Error 2707. An internal error has occurred. (npoffice )

Perhaps you could get MSO.dll from Publisher 2003 standalone because that was supposed to actually support 98,

but the office 2002 MSO.dll is probably just as good

I downloaded the update but there's only SHAREDff.msp inside. I can't extract it, nor install it.

Even if I replaced that file, I'm sure it won't work. That would be too easy. :rolleyes::whistle:

awergh, please create a log.

msiexec /i pro11.msi /L*v!C:\log.txt

Can't you open the MSP with 7-Zip?
I think he cannot. But with MsiX.EXE he can all right! :D
@RetroOS: I guess MsiX.EXE, a fantastic command-line tool, able to extract files from .msi, .msm and .msp installation files is indicated, and may help you at this point. Give it a try! Find it here: Heath Stewart's Patch Files Extractor

Yes he can extract it with 7zip

it will even extract the file from the cab because i just did it

last night.

The MSO.DLL is in the PCW_CAB_H6639_1.

I'm sure you got it from here.

7-Zip can extract MSI's and MSP's as well. Unless you still use some ancient version. But MsiX is neat too. :thumbup

@beats & PROBLEMCHYLD: Yes, I can now confirm 7-Zip is able to open .msi and .msp, thanks for the heads up.

Last time I tried it, it could not... then I updated 7-Zip many times, but never again tried to open such a file with it, so I wasn't aware of it. Thanks a lot, you both rock! :thumbup

I am curious to see if this would work with KernelEx 4.5.2, in addition to the all the latest updates. Perhaps they can add some of the dependencies needed by Windows 98.

Hello! I've tryied what the OP says to modify the installation, but after deleting those entries, when I open the MSI in 98 it says "Error opening this installation package. " and tells me to check with the administrator if this package is valid.

 

The original .MSI also says the same... But it works nice in Win7. Maybe do I need an upgrade to MSIInstaller?
