OK. I made what I will start calling "HotPacks". HotPacks will consist of all needed *.msp files to make your Office 100% up to date. It will have an "ohotfix.ini" file in it which will hold any other important info needed in it. Basically I am trying to make the Office HotPacks simular to the idea of the RVM UpdatePacks that the RVM Integrator uses, so that things are simple.
Here is a quick rundown of how to make an "Office HotPack":
This is the ohotfix.ini file I created for the first Office HotPack:
- Code: Select all
MessageTitle=Siginet's Office2K3 HotPack April 06, 2007
RICHED20.msp=Security Update for Office 2003 (KB920813)

1. The first portion is where you will specify the name of your HotPack.
In the [OHotfix] section you place a key named MessageTitle which equals the value (which is the name you want to give this HotPack).
2. The second section is [DBInfo]. This section is the info needed so that the Office Integrator will be able to download the correct registry entries from the online database.
Here is how you get the info to be placed into the [DBInfo] section.
A. Download a hotfix you wish to have added to your HotPack.
B. Use winrar or another extraction tool to extract the contents from the hotfix.
C. Within the extracted files you should see one or more *.msp files and a ohotfix.ini open the ohotfix.ini in notepad and look for the section [OHotfix], find the Key MessageTitle, and copy the Value from it.
MessageTitle=Security Update for Publisher 2003 (KB894542)
Now for each *.msp file you need to have them listed in the [DBInfo] section of your new ohotfix.ini with the value you copied from the hotfixes specific ohotfix.ini.
3. Once you have added all of your hotfixes you just place each *.msp and your new ohotfix.ini into an archive with the name "HotPack" in it. Your archive can be either *HotPack*.7z, *HotPack*.zip, *HotPack*.rar or *HotPack*.cab.
That's it. Is that simple enough?
The only other thing you need to do is make sure you submit any reg entries that are not in the database so I can add them.
You can make any "Office HotPacks" in any language. But if the Reg Entries aren't in the database then they will not get the reg entries made by the office integrator.
*Note* No Office HotPacks will work until the release of v.0.3 of the Office Integrator.
In version 0.3 My main goal is to add the ability to use the HotPacks and a language file for the gui to be translated into different languages.
I may not add the ability to download the entire online database to your computer upon executing the officeintegrator.exe until version 0.4.
