Office 2007 service pack slipstream

By , May 1, 2009 3:09 pm

Unlike Office 2003 where the service pack bits are over-written onto the Office 2003 installation files, service pack for Office 2007 is added as an update. In the “slipstreamed” Office 2007, service packs are installed after the Office installation. Thus I supposed we can’t really refer it as Office 2007 “slipstream”. Anyway, to integrate the Office 2007 service pack into an installation DVD, simply extract the contents of the Office 2007 installation DVD to a folder (e.g C:\Office 2007). Then, copy the service pack file into C:\ as well.

Use the Run command (located inside Start menu or WinKey+R) and type the following command (we will be using Office 2007 SP2 as example):

C:\office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us /extract:C:\Office 2007\Updates

Agree to the Microsoft Software Licensing Terms and the services pack files will be extracted to the updates folder. Use your prefered DVD burning software to create an installation DVD. This method is also applicable for other Office Applications such as Project 2007, Visio 2007.
