    Hi All

    I'm stuck...and looking on here, there is no clear answer on how to do the below

    I have the Office 2010 install source.
    I also have the Office 2010 Proofing tools.
    When merged into one location...I get 2 installer options. Either install Office...or install the proofing tools

    What i'd like to do...is install Office 2010 (with the updates folder fully stacked for SP1 - Already done) with the various different proofing tools for different languages, at the same time... in one installer.

    It has got to be possible, as out the box it will install French and Spanish with English
    What do I need to do to make one install source and one installer....that does the job?

    Thanks all in advance

    If I'm correct you want multiple languages at once. Not sure if Language Packs give you whats in the proofing tools, but from what you want you should try downloading langauge packs and using MicrosofT Toolkit to integrate them. This would let you install English, French and Spanish languages all in one go when you install office (not proofing tools). You'd integrate SP1 as an update (which you say you've done), integrate the languages, and install. If there is something in the proofing tools that is not in the LPs you'd have to install the proofing tools later.

    Thanks for the advice...

    I don't really want to add the multi language packs... I just wanted to add the proofing tools (spell check)
    adding the mui's for Office will add considerable weight to the package

    There must be a way to integrate the languages, (English, Spanish, French) are already in the Source..
    Surely...there has to be a tool to slipstream the other prof tools.

    (and don't call me surely) ;)

    Re: "there is an extra tab that lists all languages and you can check what ones you want" Well, if you just copy the language packs over the network install point, which is the MS recommend method, setup.exe does that magic by itself. But that's in part because the Language Packs don't have a different .WW folder. The Proofing Kit does have its own .WW folder, so it's like dropping Visio or Project over the base Office installation point. These apps have their own WW folder, so you get a list of radio buttons at setup.exe start-up from the combined installation point (call it AIO if you like), but you can't install Visio, Excel, and Project in a single run, and setup.exe doesn't present a merged list of components for these. The same thing happens with the Proofing Kit.
