Like in previous versions of Office and their corresponding Service Packs, SP3 can be slipstreamed into an administrative installation point of Office 2003, in order to allow for a fully integrated installation. This scenario explains how to create an integrated installation of Office System (2003) and the corresponding service pack in a shared distribution folder on a network or on your local computer. To complete this procedure, you must have the original Office 2003 CD media. Note: This explanation is based upon usage of Office System (2003) and SP3, but will also work for any future service packs. For Office XP integrated installations see Office XP SP1/2/3 Slipstreaming.
Office 2003 was the last version of Microsoft Office to include fully customizable toolbars and menus for all of its applications, the Office Assistant, the ability to slipstream service packs into the original setup files, Office Web Components, and the Save My Settings Wizard, which allowed users to choose whether to keep a locally cached copy of installation source files and several utility resource kit tools. It was also the last Office version to support Windows 2000. A new picture organizer with basic editing features, called Microsoft Office Picture Manager, was included. 2b1af7f3a8
