    would drop down menus give it a cleaner appearance?

    I didn't think about that.

    You could still merge some together though. Have a block each for Office, Visio & Project with the three options of x64, x86, & Both. If Both isn't an available option on Visio/Project, you could just leave their blocks with the two choices, or add an "Auto" option to auto detect the input architecture. Then you could have a single box for the output version - Volume or Retail. I don't think anyone would be mixing the install types within one .ISO. That doesn't make much sense to me to anyways - though I know it is possible.

    Or, could you make it to where the user can choose "Advanced Settings"? You could have the simplified, clean layout - but then if the user selects "Advanced Settings" the GUI changes and gives the current layout you posted. Kinda make it idiot resistant for the masses but allow advanced users the ability to totally customize each installation by license and architecture.

    Maybe that would be something for v1.3.

    Because now you can input multiple installers.
    You can input office and visio and project installers with any architecture/channel/(and maybe lang) and they will e combined into 1 iso with the channel you want.
    It isn't a textbox anymore but a listbox now that lists all input files

    I'll try to do my best to make this all working as it should be, but I'm not an experienced programmer so I'm sure I'm going to run into some problems at some point.
    So it may take a while before I release it, but I promise I'll finish it.

    Looks nice. One base to make sure is covered though - checking the 'Use advanced options' enables the options in the Advanced tab, but does it then negate the Output channel option chosen on the Standard tab?

    Basically, is the command there negated such that let's say it was left as Volume under the Standard tab, but you checked 'Use advanced options' then selected Retail on all the options in the Advanced tab - will the Retail output commands be honored and the Volume command on the Standard tab ignored?

    Yes the volume/retail radiobuttins on the standard tab are disabled when checking the checkbox, and unchecking reenables it and disables the controls on the advanced tab

    Assuming it's an exe file, does it happen before or after extraction?

    Have you created .iso files or folders?
    If .iso files, burn it out with Nero or any DVD burning software.
    If folder, use ex. UltraIso to create .iso files of the folder, then burn out.
    Or just copy the folders to a DVD, you can install it that way also. It's not a boot DVD or something like that.

    Explaining better...I created two .iso files: one contains the Office 2010 Volume x86 and another with the Office 2010 Volume x64. Is it possible to make a DVD that contains 32 and 64 bit versions like a volume combo version?

    In theory, yes. Make a folder on one of your disk: Office 2010, then create two folder under Office 2010 called X86 and x64. Then extract the 32bit version to x86 folder and 64bit to x64 folder. Then make a .iso file of the Office 2010 folder. You don't get autostart, but you can go to the x86 folder to install 32 bit and x64 folder to install 64bit.

    But the tool on the first page can do the same thing, but I have not tried that.

    Ver 1.1 can't do that, so you have to do it manually like you've explained. But this option will be there with 1.2
