        This download is a replacement of the Office 2003 setup.exe file for administrators who plan to deploy Office 2003 with Local Installation Source enabled.

        EntSetup.exe supports two new properties: ENFORCECACHE and CACHEONLY. When ENFORCECACHE is set, it blocks the install from occurring if Local Installation Source fails and also disables the Local Installation Source from being removed by the users. When CACHEONLY is set, it creates only the Local Installation Source and does not perform an install at this time. The installation can occur at a later time.

        Note: Local Installation Source is a setup feature that, when a user installs Office 2003 from a CD or from a compressed CD image on the network, copies required installation files to a hidden folder on the local computer. Microsoft Windows Installer uses this local installation source to install Office, and the local source remains available for repairing, reinstalling, or updating Office at a later time. Users can install features on demand or run Setup in maintenance mode to add new features without using their original media.
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows XP
