    Ok, I have determined more information. It appears to be related to having installed "Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system". This pack, I am unable to remove because I no longer have Office 2003. And it is causing me to be unable to install these updates to Office 2007. Is there anyone with advice on how to remove this compatibility pack when it is no longer being used?

The patch will run fine before SP1 is installed but after 
SP1 is install I receive an error basically saying it is 
not finding the application it is looking for.
I know you are saying just install the patch first 
however there are alot of computer in my office that 
already have SP1.
Thanks for your help.

This is because kb838905 is actually rolled up into SP1.  If you have SP1 
installed this is already on your system.  You can check for the patches you 
need by going to  http://www.**--****.com/

4.Missing Cabs when Installing full file version of OneNote SP1 (and Office 2003 SP1)

Whenever I try to install OneNote 2003 SP1 or Office 2003 SP1 full-file
service packs, I get "missing CAB file" errors.

Does anyone know why this is happening? I have a Toshiba M205 PC, and as
such don't have access to the CABs for OneNote, so I can't install the
missing files from the install media as I don't have any. Needless to say,
I really need the full file version to work.

I get similar errors on the Office 2003 SP1 with missing CABs from
FrontPage 2003.
