    I DO HAVE the SR1a update. Windows Update allowed me to download and install that one normally. After restart, I tried to install the SP3 update and got the symptoms I described below.

office 2003 update "installation unsuccessful"

Postby S2Vu » Thu, 03 Feb 2005 03:59:05 GMT

I have office 2003 pro w/ sp1 installed on win xp pro w/sp2 computer.  I can 
go throught every part of the office update process (check for updates, 
download updates, etc.)  including the install process, but when the 
"progress bar" finishes (step 5 of 5) I repetedly get an error message, 
"installation unseccessful".  I have tried the suggesstions, but no luck.  
Everything else works great, even windows update.  Why?

Thanks 2003 pro update installation unsuccessful

progress bar in 100% (step 5 of 5) I get the error "installation 
unsuccessful".  I have tried the suggestions with no success.

4.Unsuccessful installation of Office 2003 critical update?

I just installed Office 2003 on two computers in my home 
network.  I then attempted to download and install any 
Office 2003 updates.  There was one critical update 
listed: 'Office 2003 Critical Update KB828041'.

The download itself was successful, and the installation 
completed (as best I could tell), but the Installation 
Result window showed 'Installation Unsuccessful'.  There 
was no reason or clue as to why.

The same result occurred on both of my PCs.

Both PCs have Office 2003 activated, and both seem to be 
running fine otherwise.

Anyone else run into this problem?  Any suggestions how 
to pinpoint the cause of my installation error?  (Is 
there a log generated during the update that I could
