    Hi,
    I want to include Office 2010 home & business and home & student suites in the channel switcher, but I don't know if volume versions for this suites exist (at least I can't find them).

    So if you know where to find volume versions, or your company/organization has them and you have the possibility to share them, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance,
    Stannieman

    They do not exist, so you can do nothing for them.

    There are no VL for:
    H&S
    H&B
    Professional
    Starter
    Sharepoint Designer

    Thanks, I'll just add the option to include them without conversion then.

    And I might have found Sharepoint Designer volume, downloading now and hopefully it's real

    Sharepoint Designer is free DL without any needed activation, you must be confusing it with Sharepoint Workspace AKA Groove.

    I have the singleimage now with home & student, home & business and professional (not plus) in 1 installer.
    Does anyone have links to separate programs or is it only available in singleimage?

    There aren't any as I've looked hard and have everything but them. Every DL seems to be SingleImage for these SKU's.

    But you can't convert SingleImage though, since it doesn't have VL versions AND it includes multiple products. The patches would be massive if you wanted to patch them to ProPlus VL (if it would even work).

    I've seen H&S on torrents a long time ago but it's been singleimage.

    Yes it's for integration only, there won't be an option to switch the channel.

    Changes for 1.4 are:
    - Support for SingleImage (integration only)
    - Support for SharePointDesigner (integration only), this doesn't even require activation :yummy:
    - Support for Office Small Business Basics (also channel switch)
    - Preventive fix for readme languages of which the language id doesn't have the XX-XX structure.
    The above things are ready, but I'm trying to add support for langpacks also. That's a bit more complex than I expected however.
    Maybe also support for integration of the proofing tools.

    I don't have "integration" as in combination of discs, but the LP thing isn't that complicated. Extract the LP like an EXE installer/update, delete everything from the LP dump that shouldn't be needed, then copy remains to installer folder. Delete I just made a list of what language endings are what so I can detect/delete them. I wanted a minimalistic simple approach to the V2.1 stuff so it's probably not as good as yours for bigger operations but 99% of the time the user just wants to add 1 LP or convert 1 installer to VL so the toolkit UI I made works fine.

    (OP)
    The problem is that I want to give the user some options for the langpacks, that in combination with the fact that an inputted installer can already contain LPs + other products together, makes it more complex.

    EDIT: Ok I think I know how I'm going to do the langpacks. 20 minutes, brains and old school pen & paper did the job.

    I just search LP's by the Office32/64.XXXX folder as one of these will be there no matter what the installer is, I add them to a combo list (like keys/licenses) which user can remove chosen language (unless only one), for add I use the above process then rescan. If you detect for all possibilities like I do, you could use that if you wanted to do checkboxes for keeping/removing.
