Description[edit]

This is a silent installer for the Compatibility Pack for MS Office 2007, which allows earlier versions of Office to read/write Office 2007 file formats. With this package installed you can open the new XML-based formats like .docx in Office 2003.

Installation[edit]

Extract it to a directory by running (if you're using a Linux machine, you can extract it with wine):

FileFormatConverters.exe /extract:C:\My\Path
<package 
  id="off2007fmtconv" 
  name="Office 2007 Compatibility Pack" 
  revision="%PKG_VERSION%" 
  priority="10" 
  reboot="false">
  
  <variable name="PKG_VERSION"     value="2007" />
  <variable name="PKG_EXE_VERSION" value="11.0.8169.0" />
  <variable name="PKG_SOURCE"         value="%SOFTWARE%\MicrosoftOfficeViewer\ffconv\O12Conv.msi"/>    
  
  <check type="logical" condition="or">
    <check type="uninstall" condition="versiongreaterorequal" path="Sada Compatibility Pack pro systém Office 2007" value="12.0.6514.5001" />
    <check type="uninstall" condition="versiongreaterorequal" path="Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system" value="12.0.6514.5001" />
    <check type="uninstall" condition="versiongreaterorequal" path="Compatibiliteitspakket voor het 2007 Micr.+" value="12.0.6514.5001" />
    <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2007" />    
    <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010" />
    
  </check>
 
 <install cmd='msiexec /qn /x{90120000-0020-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}'><exit code='0' /><exit code='1605' /></install>
 <install cmd='msiexec /qn /i "%PKG_SOURCE%"' />
 
 <upgrade include="install" />
 
 <remove cmd='msiexec /qn /x{90120000-0020-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}' />
</package>

If you want to install this without extracting first you can use the following script:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<packages>
<package
	id="off2007fmtconv"
	name="Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office System"
	revision="200803131"
	priority="1">

	<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system" />

        <install cmd='msiexec /qn /x{90120000-0020-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}'><exit code='0' /><exit code='1605' /></install>
	<install cmd='%SOFTWARE%\off2007fmtconv\FileFormatConverters.exe /q' />

        <upgrade cmd='msiexec /qn /x{90120000-0020-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}'><exit code='0' /><exit code='1605' /></upgrade>
	<upgrade cmd='%SOFTWARE%\off2007fmtconv\FileFormatConverters.exe /q' />

	<remove cmd='msiexec /qn /x {90120000-0020-0409-0000-0000000FF1CE}' />
</package>
</packages>

There is no need to install the MS Office 2007 Compatibility Pack service pack manually, as Windows Update will do this for you. (Service pack 2 is already included in the setup package, however you'll have to download multiple security updates for Office 2007 from Microsoft Update after installing the Office compability pack)

Different language versions[edit]

Note that as with other Windows software, you can't rely on uninstall string (the one present in Software Add/Remove) being constant between different Windows language versions.

For example, German version should use:

 <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Compatibility Pack für 2007 Office System" />

Dutch version should use:

 <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Compatibiliteitspakket voor het 2007 Microsoft Office System" />

Italian version should use:

<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Pacchetto di compatibilità per Office System 2007" />

French version should use:

<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Module de compatibilité pour Microsoft Office System 2007"/>

Russian version should use:

<check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Пакет обеспечения совместимости для выпуска 2007 системы Microsoft Office"/>
