If you install Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 along with Office, the Windows Desktop Update is not installed. This occurs even though you included a custom Microsoft Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) package in a transform that specified that the Windows Desktop Update should be installed.
The internal command line that Office Setup passes to Internet Explorer Setup does not include the switch that is necessary for the Desktop Update to be installed.
To work around this problem, use one of the following methods.
Method 1: Use the Updated Transforms and Custom Installation WizardA special transform for CD1 (O9WIS_1.mst) and CD2 (O9WIS_2.mst) is available on the Microsoft Office 2000 Resource Kit Web site. Using these transforms files automatically installs the Windows Desktop Update with Internet Explorer 5. Also, you must customize these transforms by using the new Custom Installation Wizard (CIW) that is included in the Office Resource Kit core tool set.
NOTE: You do not have to use the IEAK to install the Windows Desktop Update with these updated transform files.
Method 2: Install Internet Explorer 5 Before You Install OfficeYou can perform a stand-alone installation of Internet Explorer 5 with a custom IEAK package, including the option to install the Windows Desktop Update, before you install Office.
Method 3: Repair Office Shortcuts After You Add the Windows Desktop UpdateIf you already installed Office, and the Windows Desktop Update is not installed, follow these steps to create Windows Installer shortcuts for Office programs:
