    Office 2000 sr1/sr1a

    On the old lounge there was a post about how to tell if your CD for O2K is Sr-1 or Sr-1a, as the CDs themselves tend to be misprinted. All I remember was that you have to check the properties of some specific files, but I can't find the hard copy of the post that I had which listed the files. Does anybody know where to look for this?

    Does <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q267/8/39.ASP>Q267839</A> help?

    SUMMARY
    The Office 2000 SR-1 and Office 2000 SR-1a full product compact discs (CDs) are both labeled SR-1 making it difficult to visually determine which compact disc you are using. To determine whether or not you have SR-1 or SR-1a, you need to look at the properties of the Data1.msi file in the root folder of the compact disc.

    The differences between the SR-1 and SR-1a compact discs are listed in the table in the "More Information" section of this article.

    MORE INFORMATION
    To determine if you have SR-1 or SR-1a, compare the properties of the Data1.msi file in the root folder of the compact disc with the information in the table below. To view the properties of the Data1.msi file, run Windows Explorer, view the contents of the root folder of the compact disc, right-click the Data1.msi file, and then click Properties on the menu that appears.

    Office Data1.msi Data1.msi Revision Number
    Version File Size (Statistics tab)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SR-1 2,350,592 bytes {F6E1A6C2-EEE5-11D3-AAA4-0060B0F89932}
    SR-1a 2,355,200 bytes {780DD2E5-561E-4D92-92E8-4A5A1D92AAAE}

    Re: Office 2000 sr1/sr1a

    I found this information too on the MS website - but then what do you do when the data1.msi file on the original CD is 2,357,248 bytes?

    This is an international (Danish) version - so maybe that in itself can give difft sizes. But if so - where are these sizes listed??
