  • 3. Unable to install SP2 and SP3
    Hi, I am managing a network that uses Windows XP and Office 2000 SP1a. I have been able to install SP2 and SP3 in some of these computers. In some systems (very few -10) I am unable to install SP2 and SP3. In MS Word 2000 I have the following (9.0.3821 SR-1). I tried running the SP2 and this is the error I am getting: The Update cannot be applied.. In a second system I was able to install SP2. In Outlook 2000 SR-1 (; this system shows an updated version. However, if I tried to install SP3 I get "The expected version of the product was not found on your system". Please help me to install the SP's in my environment. Eddy Silvano

Office 2003 update detector, administrative patch won't work

Most grateful if anyone can help me out of this bind: The online update 
detector doesnt work, and I cant update with the admin patch. Next I get the 
message "The Product ID number you entered has expired. You may go back and 
choose another support option or enter another Product ID number" when I try 
to send an email support request. Is there some way out of this maze? Why is 
my ID expired? This is a properly licensed and registered installation.

Office 2003 update will not work , I have an administrative install point. 

When I try to update office on my laptop at home I can see the updates but I 
get a message that tells me that the updates need to be installed from an

Hi, i've updated my office 2003 administrative installation point with all 
available updates. After reflecting these changes to the clients three

outlook junk filter update seems to be recognized correctly, because the are

3.Office 2003 Updates WITHOUT re-installing office after an administrative install

Is there anyway to install just the needed updates to an 
Office 2003 installation that was done from an 
administrative install point WITHOUT updating the point 
and re-installing office on the clients?

I just want to create an administrative install point to 
do my initial installs.  After that, I want to install 
just the needed patches and/or Service Packs via somthing 
like SUS.  I don't want to update the administrative 
install point and re-install office everytime.  Thanks.
