[Information General]

- I've uploaded the Post-SP3 updates for Office 2003, i believe that this should cover all the versions, Professional, Standard, SBE.

- For the people that want to add the Office Compatibility Pack I have released a slipstreamed version that can be found at this thread:


Information English


Change log for this release;

- All hotfixes included. Office 2003 has officially reached end of support, so like the Office XP hotpack, this should be considered the final updates for 2003.

- An update will appear in MU (Microsoft Update) for the 'Office File Validation', this in fact is an add-in for Office 2003 and 2007. It is a msi installer wrapped in a executable file (exe). Since this is not a hotfix (msp) it will not be possible to integrate it into a hotpack. I have also read there are people experiencing issues with this add-in.
If you want to include this add-in, you can either download it here, or use my Office Updates Downloader to get it. After you have the file, ofv.exe, when you do your integration go to the Config2 tab, click on the 'File' button button to load the ofv.exe into the Office Integrator. After it's loaded, click on it to highlight it, then click the 'Cmd Line' button. In the popup windows put the following switch minus the quotes; "/quiet"
This will chain install the add-in at the end of the installation with the /quiet switch to install it silently. After that it should not appear in the MU.


You will need to download the English fullfile Office 2003 SP3 at this link (117.7MB);

After that you will need to download the Post-SP3 hotfixes which i have put into a HotPack, which can be downloaded here;

- As mentioned i am stopping the french language hotpack from lack of time and demand.

A big thanks to benners, Siginet & skinnyJM for all their hard work to make this possible.

There has been an issue that the Junk Mail filter for Outlook from October (KB974771) seems to be required by MU even though the December hotfix (KB976882
) is installed. This is likely a glitch from Microsoft in determining which updates are applicable but until the issue is resolved the October release is included in the hotpack.

Thanks to benners for getting a new version of the OI to make this possible! ;)

It seems the glitch for the Junk Mail Filter has been resolved and that the redundant one from October is no longer needed.

Hello.... :)

I was going to ask if a list of updates were available, since I had been unable to get the file from rapidshare at 1st.

However, it was nothing that a download manager didn't cure. :D (I really must use those things more often.... They can actually work & be useful + lightweight. Well, how about that!?) j/k XD

I just felt like dropping a note.... ~waves~ Take care!

People have other concerns besides making sure that HotPacks are up to date to the millisecond. I know, as I am, TwoJ is busy with other, more important things.

If you want the latest pack you can use his February pack as a starting point, download the few extra updates and use the "Update Hotpack" feature in the OI to add the new updates.

To use you select the Hotfix tab then, Options - Browse. Select the HotPack and wait until the list is populated.

When this is complete Select Options - "Update HotPack" and select the latest updates. The HotPack will be rebuilt and be up to date.
