As I said , I try to do what I can.
The date I use is just generally the date I finish them on which may be a few days difference between when I post the file updates on the webpage. Don't pay too much attention to it.

Now that 2003 is no longer supported, I am moving on and have two questions about 2007 integration when using OI.

Is it possible to update in place as with 2003?

My source is a slipsteamed 2007 + SP3 and the target is $Office2007SP3+1402
Later, if try and use the target as the source, I cannot update it without
specifying a new target. With 2003, it was possible to do an in-place update.

What is the purpose of the Productkey entry field for 2007?

I assumed it would update the config.xml file when I ran the integration,
but the key seems to be ignored.

Thanks for any pointers

Hi adric
Post 2003, ie 2007+, don't slipstream the hotfixes into the source files, 2007 will install and then go looking in the updates subfolder for any patches, hotfixs that need to be applied. It also looks for a configuration file if you decide to customize the installation in that folder as well.
As mentioned slipstream (integrated) is not applicable for 2007+, so you have 2007 with SP3 update.
The purpose of the product key is the same, all office products need a product key to be legal.
To tell the truth 2007 you can install in trial mode, without a key, so I can't say about the config.xml file, I think there are 2 or 3 ways to store the key for a 2007 installation so I don't know which way the OI uses to pass the key.
hope that helps

let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks TwoJ. I ran setup with the /admin switch and created a config.msp with the key, etc. and use that for the install. I used OI to update your last hotpack and then ran the integration with a new target. This is what I ended up with for April:
Code: Select all
KB2597971=Replaced By Security Update for Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 (KB2817565) 32-Bit Edition
KB2825644=Replaced By Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB2863811) 32-Bit Edition
KB2837615=Replaced By Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2878236) 32-Bit Edition
KB2837617=Replaced By Security Update for Microsoft Office Word 2007 (KB2878237) 32-Bit Edition

Hi again
I know that at work I use an msp for the silent install of office 2010 and one of the criteria is that it sits at the top of the list, so something like _1_SilentInstallConfig1.msp. I don't know if 2007 is similar or supports that way of configuring, MS keeps changing things in regards to silent installs.
One of the biggest issues that benners has/had with the OI was to find a way to eliminate the older hotfixes and keep the newer ones, most of our communication was dealing with issues like that. Since 2007+ just need the msps into the updates folder I have been including a small batch file within the office updates downloader (OUD). This batch file extracts the msps and eliminates the extra files that aren't necessary and just gives you the essential msps that you copy into the updates folder in the source installation. While not perfect it eliminates the problem of always needing to redo the OI.
I'm not sure if the OUD currently has it for 2007, I'm in the process of re-doing them, hope to have them out soon. Then they should have all the up-to-date hotfixes, without the issues of obsolete hotfixes.

2007 applications now have a batch file to extract the updates, hopefully make things a bit easier.
