How to ‘Slipstream’ Office 2007 with SP2


Hat tip to Paul Thurrott

Remember! Microsoft Office Service Packs are cumulative, you only need the latest service pack.

Here’s how you slipstream Office 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2).

1. Download the standalone installer (290 MB). The filename is office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us.exe.

2. Create two folders in the root of your C: drive. (C:Extract) and (C:Updates).

3. Move the Office 2007 SP2 installer to the Extract folder.

4. Open a command line window (CMD with Administrative Privileges) and type the following:

CD C:Extract

office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us.exe /extract:C:Updates

5. Agree to the EULA and then close the Installer when completed.

6. Move the contents of the C:Updates folder to the Updates folder in your Office 2007 install folder structure.

7. Optionally, burn to disc or, update/file share.
