How do I download Service Pack 3 if my dial connection disconn

Microsoft OFFICE


  • 1. Script Error on OfficeUpdate pages
    After installing a recent update on a win98SE OS I wanted to update Word2000 on OfficeUpdate. However, the page checking for the needed updates has script errors and does therefore not load completely, it stopps at 40% checking. Also other pages of OfficeUpdate site show script errors so that I cannot even download the word2000 patch manually. (WindowsUpdate or other sites show no script errors). My guess is that this is because of the windows patch which I installed on April 12, but not sure. Last OfficeUpdate lasts back several months. How do I correct the script errors? (The browser in question is IE5.5 SP2; IE6 SP1 causes too many problems on that system) Thanks for any suggestions to solve this problem. Karen
  • 2. Problem with 512150.OUTLFLTR.msp - apparently missing - where do .
  • 3. sp1 update errors 2746, 1603
    In trying to update Office 2003, OneNote 2003, Visio 2003, and Project 2003 to their SP1 versions, I get an intall error. Looking at the 0Hotfix.txt files it mentions error codes 2746 and 1603. All other parts of Office Professional 2003 have been updated. OS XP SP2.
  • 4. Microsoft Antispyware Beta blocks download of Office updates.
    To install latest Office updates, Microsoft Antispyware must be disabled. This information should be provided on the update web page or the update should be installable with Antispyware running.
  • 5. Give an option to update Office without a CD. Our IT is over worke
    In our office we do not have the cd software for our PCs. Our IT department is short staffed and doesn't have time to run around updating PCs.

I had the exact same problem. I was within 30 minutes of a 3 hour download 
and my modem disconnected. Why isn't there the ability to begin where the 
download was last at? My Apple Mac is able to continue where it left off. Why 
doesn't Microsoft do this? I don't want to send for a CD. I want it via a 
download. There HAS to be a way to continue a download after a disconnection. 
Not being able to do so is so ARCHAIC!!!

Get one of the 72 million free download managers from 
 http://www.**--****.com/ +download+manager&btnG=Search 
and use it to download the file(s) from the Microsoft website. 
Or use a web browser (such as Netscape) that has a download 
manager built in.  If you get disconnected in the midst of a 
download, the download manager will resume the download at the 
point where you were disconnected, instead of starting over at 
the beginning.

1.How do I download a large Service Pack on a dial-up connection


I don't believe this will work.  The Microsoft downloads seem to integrate 
themselves into the software in a way that doesn't provide access to what has 
been downloaded.  If you'll remember the download didn't have a "Save" option 
during the process.

Also, per my previous answer to a pos titled "Download of office2003-sp2 is 
over 2.5 hours, i want a CD-rom":

 I totally agree with the original post.  Posting a Service Pack (in my case 
need both SP 1 & 2) without providing an option for obtaining the CD, and not 
indicating any future availability on CD (as Don MI provides in his answer) 
shows very little concern for the time of those who are led to believe that 
their only option is the download.

2.Office 2003 Service Pack 2 is too large to download via dial-up

The Office 2003 Service Pack 2 (English) download is 46MB and is a 6 hour 
download via my dial up ISP. My ISP cuts off before the lengthy download to 
my computer can be completed. Any recommendations on how I can obtain the 
required Service pack using my existing dial up? Can the Service Pack be 
somehow broken down into smaller packages?

The updates are only offered if you have Service Pack 1 installed.
