Slipstream/Integrate SP2 RTM into Office 2007

After you have downloaded the office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us.exe file from Microsoft, make sure to create two different folders on a local drive.
For this specific example I will use D:. So, create D:\Extracted_files and C:\Updated_files.
Copy Office 2007 SP2 to the Extracted_files folder. Next you will have to launch command prompt. Just type cmd in the search box under the Start Menu and right click selecting Run as administrator, to enjoy full privileges.
Next you will need to run the following command CD D:\Extracted_files\office2007sp2-kb953195-fullfile-en-us.exe /extract:D:\Updated_files.
During the extraction process you will have to agree to the End User License Agreement (EULA), but otherwise you need to do nothing. Once the Installer is done you need to move all the content of the Updated_files folder to the Updates folder in the Office install folder, and this is pretty much it. The result can be burnt on a DVD or saved locally or on a network share.

Microsoft training video reveals older prototype of Windows 7 “superbar”

I’m glad at least someone is paying attention to the French. A couple of days ago Anthony Cook of noticed some interesting screenshots from a presentation at the Microsoft France training event “TechDays 09” of what appeared to be a different user-interface for Windows 7. However contrary to his speculation that this was to be the speculated theme refresh under wraps for Windows 7, it is in fact a screenshot of an old “superbar” prototype.

In this version of the superbar (presumably by default) labels are still enabled. Unlike the labels in the version of Windows 7 today which just feature an application window’s title in a single line, it appears to be a multi-line label separating the name of the application and a subtitle indicating the contents of the current window.
