    Office XP SP2 English version is out

    Microsoft has posted Office XP SP2 English on their servers.

    Quote from MS Spokeswoman
    "SP-2 will include new security updates that enhance the protection of Office Web components from hackers, and an Excel 2002 update that prevents the loss of digital signatures when auto-saving spreadsheets
    The service pack will also include security updates already released, including those that prevent Word from running ActiveX controls when the user is using Word to edit e-mail messages and has configured Outlook to disable script.
    It will also provide additional protection against exploits in Excel, which could potentially run macros without warning"

    Office XP SP2 Standard Version English (14.7mb)

    Office XP SP2 Administrative Version English (49mb)

    It installed pretty quick. The next step now is slipstreaming it onto a CD.

    That article discusses slip streaming integration with windows 2000. I imagine the process would be the same for office XP. Just copy the contents of the office XP folder on the HDD, add the update using the command line, then burn the contents of the folder onto a CD.

    SP2 slipstreamer

    Office XP SP2 Slipstreamer v.2

    This program will slipstream Office XP and SP2 together if you dont want to install SP2 seperately. It will also save you having to re-enter your CD KEY each time you install.
    You will need an Office XP CD to use this or the setup files on HD. You CANNOT use a slipstreamed Office SP1 CD.

    Thanks Rev, now we no longer have to be a Rocket Scientist to slipstream the Service Pack!
