How to slipstream Service Pack 3 into Microsoft Office Project 2003

These instructions apply to Project 2003 Standard Edition. To slipstream other versions, you’ll need to replace PRJSTDE.MSI with the name of the MSI for your Project Edition.


You’ll need a Volume Licence Key setup CD.

D:\setup.exe /a

Save to C:\project2003\

Download Project 2003 SP3

Extract its contents to C:\Project2003SP3\ with:

Project2003SP3-KB923622-FullFile-ENU.exe /Q /C /T:C:\Project2003SP3\

Perform slipstream with:

msiexec /p C:\Project2003SP3\PROJECTSP3.msp /a C:\Project2003\PRJSTDE.MSI SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb

Delete the C:\Project2003SP3\ folder as you no longer need it 🙂
