Custom setting lost, after installation of Project 2003

Microsoft OFFICE


  • 1. Office 2007 Customization question
    am working on our install of Office 2007 Pro. We are using the OCT and at the end of the install we want the pc to reboot. Is there a way we can display to the user a countdown timer, informing them our Computer Will Restart in 5:49 Minutestick, tick etc. As we have no idea the exact amount of time the install will take, we need to inform them when they have to start saving open info right away. Any ideas?

1.Office 2003: Custom Installation Wizard Settings Will Not Apply

I have a couple of Windows server 2003 Service Pack 2, Terminal
Services servers that I using the Office 2003 Resource Kit's Custom
Installation Wizard tool to customize an Admin Install. When choosing
Office components, I click on Publisher, InfoPath and SharePoint and
select "Not Available, Locked, Hidden."
After I run the installation, using the MST created by the CIW, all
three of those components are still fully installed and operational on
my server.
I ran the installation package in Terminal Services Install mode,
changed to Execute mode and rebooted the server afterwards. Anyone
have any ideas why the CIW didn't work?


2.Outlook 2003 SP2 ignoring custom installation wizard settings


I'm trying to install Outlook 2003 SP2 with some custom settings using an 
.mst file created using the Custom installation wizard. I have an existing 
user base of Outlook 2000 users, and I want to deploy Outlook 2003 with 
various options based on differing deployment scenarios.

For one scenario I am trying to get Outlook to use cached Exchange mode, and 
trying to specify some settings for cached Exchange mode.

The install source is an administrative installation point updated with SP2.

Upon running the install the setup appears to be ignoring the majority of 
the settings specified in the .mst file, for example the settings for cached 
Exchange mode are ignored, as are some options for preventing access to add 
new mail accounts etc. however I have specified that a desktop icon for 
Outlook should be created in the .mst file and this does appear, so clearly 
the setup is reading the .mst file.

The steps I have gone through are as follows:

At the "Outlook Custom Default Profile" screen I select "Modify Profile". I 
then select to "configure an Exchange server connection" and specify a 
username and server name and tick Overwrite existing settings. I've tried the 
setup with and without selecting enable offline user in "More options". I've 
also tried specifying that a new profile should be created.

Under "You can configure new or existing profiles...." I've selected 
"Configure Cache Exchange mode" Then ticked "Use Cached Exchanged mode" and 
selected the option I want. 

I then click through to the end of the wizard.

I have also tried specifying settings in the "Change Office User settings" 
page to specify that users should use cached exchange mode and that they 
should not be able to add other POP or internet accounts, however these 
settings are also ignored.

What is really confusing me is that if I run through the same process with 
an admin installation point that is not updated with SP2, then everything 
works as expected......Is there an update for the CIW or something for SP2 
that I am not aware of?

3.Office 2003 Custom Installation Wizard has no effect on Security Settings

Hi All,

It seems like all my settings work fine after I've created an MST...all 
except for default macro settings (step 15 in CIW under Specify Security 

I'm chaining service pack 2 on with no problems, but I've also tried without 
chaining sp2 and the mst has no effect on Macro Security settings.

In a nutshell..HELP!!!!! Is this a known issue or has anybody stumbled 
across this before?


4.Setting project reference at installation

In my Word VBA-application I'm using Access data bases that are entirely
controlled from my code. When installing the application in client computers
it happens that the client doesn't have the Access application installed,
and I therefore have to install MSACC9.OLB or MSACC.OLB in his environment.

However, the tough job is to automate the activation of the project
reference from my application.
Any tips are greatly appreciated.

5.Lost Visual Basic project in Excel 2003

I continue to rec'v a Microsoft Visual Basic error when opening a excel 
worksheet w/macros.  The first error box I rec'v says, "Error accessings 
file.  Network connection may have been lost."  I click ok, and then rec'v an 
error "errors were detected in 'MetricsMaster.xls', but Microsoft Excel was 
able to open the file by making the repairs listed below.  Save the file to 
make these repairs permanent."  "Lost Visual Basic project."

I can no longer use the macros.  VBA IS installed. 

Does anyone know what might be the problem and how to fix it?
