Office 2007 Service Pack 2 Available Today

SP2 released to web for download today. We have a great KB article that contains links to all the downloads and description KB’s for each package. Check it out here:

SP2 contains a lot of great enhancements and fixes to Office 2007. Here are a few of them:

  • Support for Open Document Format (ODF)
  • Built in support for XPS and PDF (Add-in no longer required)
  • Improved performance and responsiveness in Outlook
  • SP2 can be uninstalled

The last bullet will be the topic of another post very soon. For the first time in Office history we can uninstall a service pack without having to remove and reinstall everything. This is done with a tool called “Microsoft Service Pack Uninstall Tool for the 2007 Microsoft Office suite”, or OARPMAN for short. More on this soon!

    In windows desktop deployment 2008 I have an application to install Office 2007 Pro Plus. I also had an application in WDD to install Office 2007 SP1.  I have removed SP1 and added a new application to install SP2.

    When WDD Lite Touch finishes I get a warning:

    “Non-zero return code executing command “C:MININTToolsX86TsmBootstrap.exe” /env:SAContinue, rc=-2147467259

    This warning goes away if I remove(don’t try to install office sp2)  I have also tried to add the extracted files to the update folder.

    Here is the catch…Office SP2 installs but due to the warning my custom scripts in WDD don’t run.

    Is there some kind of special return code I can put into the task sequince to get the deployment to know that everything is cool?  I’ve tried adding reboots between installs but the only way to get a clean deployment is to not have Office 2007 SP2 includded.




    It appears that the error you are seeing is specific to your deployment method. You may want to open a ticket with support at 800-936-4900.
