The DVDs have \x64 and \x86 folders - would like to see the new Integrator update both if that is possible. I mention that because I know the RyanVM Integrator will slipstream both XP Pro and XP Pro x64 versions.
My preference would be to integrate Service Packs first then any and all updates released after the Service Pack.
I have had no reason to try OI 1.2 on Office 2010 - is it compatible? I did start it and selected the Office 2010 Pro setup file - ended up with 2007 being selected, not surprisingly seeing as how the only selections are XP, 2003, and 2007. If I tried it now would it work only for the x86 (32bit) version or both? Just curious?
Also, The 2010 folder structure includes \x64\updates and \x86\updates in which the user is instructed to copy any and all service packs, hotfixes, updates, etc that are to be installed during initial installation. From what I remember being mentioned by Microsoft and others in other forums this is the method Microsoft opted for so 'slipstreaming' and/or 'integrating' would not be necessary; thereby eliminating the need for a program like the Office Integrator. Also, has anyone really tried to integrate the service pack and/or any hotfixes; I know I haven't.

Were you aware of this problem with the current OI?
Basically what happens is that some newer fixes are moved to the obsolete directory when using the Build Hotpack option. On one of the hotpacks that I did, out of 3 fixes, 2 were correctly obsoleted and one icorrectly obsoleted.

User copies CDs/DVDs to hard drive partition for access by Office Integrator (OI); or OI copies the source(s) CDs to a \Temp folder or folders as needed. OI should require user to create and point to output; i.e \Office2002(XP)Int (to include final integrated product) and \Office 2002(XP)ISO (if an ISO file is needed). The contents of the \Office2002(XP)Int folder would be copied to a flash driver if that is the the desired output.
OI is started and it goes online to download latest copy of the Ketarin Office Updates Downloader and extracts same to \Ketarin folder; Ketarin is started and proceeds to download all updates listed (may take a while). (Don't know if it's possible to restrict these downloads to the Office version being updated.) I'm assuming superseded updates are deleted during this process.
OI uses Ketarin downloads to fill in information in Service Pack tab, Hotfix tab, Contig1 tab, Contig2 tab. If necessary, user navigates to Ketarin folders containing the downloads and selects the appropriate Viewers\Compatibility Pack(s).
If source is multiple CDs OI should have the ability to integrate updates and merge multiple sources so that the user can create an ISO file to burn a DVD and/or copy the newly integrated source to a flash drive.
They cannotIf the Service Pack and hotfixes/updates for Office 2007 and later cannot be integrated
I had a look at a few and they were inno setup types so not easily integrated. They would have to be chained after the office installation, that is if I keep the ability to do chained installs with future releases. The threads I started asking about functions, this one included, have had plenty of views but only yours and adrics' good selves have responded. Either interest is waning with the long wait between versions or people don't need the program so I have stripped a few bits out.In addition to the above I would also consider a new tab: Addins. I have downloaded many addins that appear to be common to all Office versions: 3dCharts.exe, Access2Converter.exe, ConvertNumberToText.exe, Lookout120.exe, MathEasy.exe, OutlookConnector121.exe, ReaderAddinForWord.exe, RemoveHiddenDataTool11.exe, SmartTagDate&PhoneXML.exe, WordwareForWord.exe, wordweb68.exe, XLAddinSetup.msi (There may be many more - this is those I'm aware of.)
