    Howto: SP1 -> SP2 -> Office XP Pro

    Just to save you from the trouble:

    This is how you slipstream SP1 and SP2 into Office XP Pro
    (The instructions are only tested with the US version of XP Pro
    be sure to download the correct version of the SPs and not
    the ones provided in the links if you try to apply the patch to a different version)

    You will need to apply SP1 before applying SP2


    First of all you need to download these files:
    oxpsp1a.exe (NOT oxpsp1.exe) from here :Service Pack 1
    and oxpsp2a.exe (NOT oxpsp2.exe) from here :Service Pack 2

    Then:
    You first need to create an administrative installation so:
    * insert Office XP in your cd-rom drive
    * execute from the command prompt of your CD-ROM "setup /a"
    * enter organization & CD-Key & location (C:\Office)
    * install (don't worry it won't overwrite your current installation)

    Next Step:
    *Extract the oxpsp1a.exe to C:\OXPSP1
    *Extract the oxpsp2a.exe to C:\OXPSP2

    Patch with SP1 part 1:
    *Type in the command prompt:
    "msiexec /p C:\OXPSP1\MAINSP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\proplus.msi"
    *Don't change details!
    *install

    Patch with SP1 part2:
    *Type in the command prompt:
    "msiexec /p C:\OXPSP1\OWC10SP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\owc10.msi"
    *Don't change details!
    *install

    Patch with SP2 part 1:
    *Type in the command prompt:
    "msiexec /p C:\OXPSP2\MAINSP2ff.msp /a C:\Office\proplus.msi"
    *Don't change details!
    *install

    Patch with SP2 part2:
    *Type in the command prompt:
    "msiexec /p C:\OXPSP2\OWC10SP2ff.msp /a C:\Office\owc10.msi"
    *Don't change details!
    *install

    When done burn the contents of C:\Office to a CD-Rom
    Bear in mind that when using your new CD you cannot change the Product Key,it will use the one you entered during the patch.

    To correct/avoid errors, try to do it first on a CD-RW.

    Good Luck :)

    PS1: I tryied to double check everything but you never know... :(

    In addition to the above information you can also type

    msiexec /i C:\Office\proplus.msi REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus

    and update your current installation, however you will need to re-activate in you are not using a corp version.

    I tried that but the total size was somewhere around 950 MB. That won't fit on any CD that I know of. How big was yours after installing both SP's?

    Something has gone wrong in your slipstreaming, I made one last week and it fitted on a cd with a tonne of room left over to create a directory and place both the MSP files in it (To install on computers that weren't connected to the network that didn't have the SP already installed)

    How big was it after just installing SP1? My copy came with SP1 pre-installed so I all I did was add SP2.

    FYI

    If you are doing an ADMINISTRATIVE update to your OfficeXP CD / Administrative Installation, you DON'T need to install SP1 before you do SP2. Only SP2 would suffice.

    However, if you are updating your INSTALLATION of Office XP, you DO need to install SP1 and THEN SP2.

    Ok guys and girls,
    there is nothing wrong with the slipstreaming...
    I just forgot to mention (I thought it was obvious)
    you delete the OXPSP1 and OXPSP2 folders after the update....
    then the size on an NTFS disk is 635MB and according to Microsoft:


    There you go.....:)

    Correct, if you are updating your INSTALLATION of OfficeXP. If you want to SLIPSTREAM the SP2 into your OfficeXP cd, you DON't have to slipstream SP1 first. Remember, we are talking the ADMINISTRATIVE updates here. Not the regular ones.

    That's the article I was referring to. Don't know why my link doesn't work, guess it got cut off by the web board software. But yes, that's the page, and the exact same quote. ;)
