Office 2010 The Movie

No. your eye’s aren’t playing trick on you. With the intention of having a share in the multi-billion dollar movie industry, Microsoft has created a new film based on Office 2010, possibly the blockbuster movie for the season (maybe not).

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.

Windows XP & Office 2003 official support ends 14th April 2014

By , April 9, 2009 8:36 am

7.5 years for WinXP and 5.5 years for Office 2003, it has been a long way and thanks to WinXP, Win2k was almost made non-existant to most people. While WinXP had dominated the OS platform for almost the past half decade, I had been burrying myself inside Win2k Advance Server and Win2k3 Server as my production OS (at least before Vista was released), except for my company issued laptops.

Critical and security updates will still be available for both software thru the extended support period which ends 8th April 2014. Non-security updates will only be available to companies that subscribed to support contracts with Microsoft.

How to delete auto-complete email addresses in Outlook 2003

By , March 17, 2008 11:39 am

Whenever you attempt to type an email address (that had been used previously), you’d notice Outlook will provide a drop down list containing previous similar addresses you had used. So after some usage, the list gets longer and you want to clear the history and finding no setting in Outlook and you start to uninstall and reinstall Outlook. So here’s a faster way or you.

  1. Close Outlook.
  2. Launch Windows Explorer, type %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook in the address bar and hit enter.
  3. locate files with extension *.NK2 and delete them (usually named Outlook.NK2).
  4. Launch Outlook.

Another method which allows you to delete selected history.

  1. In Outlook, type the address that you wanted to delete.
  2. Once the drop down list appear, use your arrow key and navigate to the address to be deleted.
  3. Hit Delete key on your keyboard to delete it.

Microsoft Office Outlook Connector for Live Hotmail

By , August 20, 2007 10:46 am

The Outlook Connector for Live Hotmail has gone gold. You can download the connector here.

The Outlook Connector does not use POP3 for downloading of mails from Live Hotmail. Instead it uses DeltaSync, a HTTP based protocol. This protocol sync Outlook with Live Hotmail, think of it where what you see and changes on Outlook is what you will see on Live Hotmail and vice versa.

In addition, the Outlook Connector allows synchronization of Address Book. Synchronization of Calender is only available for premium users.

By the way, a check with my hotmail shows that I have gotten the 5GB upgrade.


Microsoft Office Outlook Connector beta

By , June 11, 2007 12:15 am

The Outlook Connector is finally returning as a free-for all tool. Outlook Connector was once a free-for-all tool many years back, allowing users to synchronize hotmail with Outlook 97, 2000 and 2002. However at around 2003, it was changed and made available only to Hotmail Plus users. Hotmail users who registered before 2003 were still able to use the connector due to their Hotmail account configuration, but new users who registered afte 2003 weren’t that luckly.

Facing a stiff competition with Google Mail and Yahoo! Mail, it is no surprise that Microsoft decided to make this tool free again. While it might be a bit too late considering Google Mail had long ago allowed POP3 access to their webmail, the introduction of Outlook Connector is definitely not going to be futile.
