Virtual Kontainers

Has anyone had luck with creating a office 2007 VK? When I try and make one its failing... If i retain the installer files i think the files are to large and no getting uploaded to Kbox (over 2Gb), and if I don't retain the installer files it fails.

I just created one the other day. I first used Microsoft’s office customization tool (OCT) to edit everything and to make a smooth install before making the kontainer. I had a lot of issues initially. I noticed that if you rename the file from "Microsoft Setup Bootstrapper" to something else, made the destination folder to long, or included the installer files, it would fail on me. I was able to get it to work perfect by keeping the name the same, shortening the destination folder, and not including the installer files. You could try it that way and see how it does. If it works, then you can start playing around with it and trying out different things to see what is really causing the issue. But I was able to get it to work great using the OCT after a couple days and many undo disks on my virtual PC.

P.S. I also used the Kontainer Creator Utility located on the local PC to create the Kontainer. Doing it through the Kbox does not allow too much configuration and I was not able to ever get it to work that way. In my opinion, the KCU works the best.
