Yeah I know this should be sent to WININSTALL Support but I can not seem to get info as to why/how and then resolve it. I am using WININSTALL to create a MSI package (Office 2003) and it seems to have created it correctly but when I run it on a PC it comes up with an error 2731 at the FileCost with Selection Manager Not Initialized. Then the install fails. I have the log as I have beena able to work that part out so I now can see what it is trying to do but again I am unable to get the MSI package to work.

rene52,

Don't re-package Office 2003, you should use ORK instead.

Thanks for that. Yeah I know I should be using ORK to package this one but it doesn't mean that it is the only way. I would have though that using an installer packaging program would still do something similar.

No, it's the recommended way! and specific for office do not re-package it.

Yeh...if you want a guaranteed way to lose your sanity, re-package Office and get it to work FULLY, including updates (esp. the gems deilivered via Windows/Office Update/whatever-MS-is-calling-it-this-week), patches, etc.

There is no doubt that it *can* be done but, honestly, life's too short...
