  • 1. Cannot install Office XP Service Pack 3
    I have my system set for Automatic Updates and it is coming up with an update to XP Service Pack 3, however when I try to install it goes through the process and prompts me to enter my Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers CD which I have done and at the end of the process the pop up window states that XP Service Pack 3 did not install. Having browsed the support centre, I tried to manuall install the update using OfficeXpSp3-kb832671-fullfile-enu.exe and during the installation of the update I received an error message as follows; Err 1402 Set up cannot open the registry key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents\IMAIL. Verify that you have sufficient permissions to access the registry or contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) for assistance. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? Many thanks.

  • 2. Office 2003 SP3 file conversion issue
    Since installing Office 2003 SP3 we cannot open some Word files created in Office 2007. When trying to open up the doc, the "File Conversion" dialog comes up with 3 options (windows(default), MS-DOS, Other encoding) such as it does when trying to open up a file that Word doesn't recognize. In the "Preview" window, the text is all garbled (mixture of symbols and letters). I have the Office File compatibility pack installed. Prior to installing SP3, I was able to open up the same file without any problem.
  • 3. "Word was unable to read this document. It may be corrupt" after install SP3
    After install SP3, the word document was still unable to read. However, the file is unable to open in 2000. I installed the SP3 directly from office 2003 without previous SP1/2 Any suggestion? Many thanks!
  • 4. 2003SP3 Blocking older documents
    I have been through the KB and have 938810, 941636 and 922849. I have tried the registry hacks, however they do not exist. When I try to drill down to either HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Security\FileOpenBlock or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Security\FileOpenBlock they are not there. There is no \security.... and beyond. If I were to manually create these keys would this solve the issue? Does anyone know the key specifics so that I can create them properly? Thanks
  • 5. trying to update Office 2007 Microsoft update site offers Office 2
    I want to be sure my Office 2007 Small Business is up to date with security issues but the microsoft update website, after scanning my computer recommends updating to Office 2003 SP3. Is this the correct solution and frankly from the posts I've seen about 2003 SP3 I would be reluctant to download that. Thanks, Geek Freek

Update from Office XP Home Edition to Office XP Professional Edition

I bought my computer with XP Home Edition and just found 
out that it did not come with Powerpoint and Access.  How 
can I update from XP Home to XP Professional without 
buying the entire Professional Edition?

Hi Koromac,

I'm assuming you're referring to the
 Office XP Small Business Edition (XP Home is
the Windows version).  Contact the PC supplier
and ask about their policy on upgrading to the
Office XP Professional + Publisher OEM edition.

MS has no provision in the retail packages for
upgrading other than the boxed retail 30 day money
back guarantee one.

Bob,

Thanks for your advise.  I've contacted my PC Supplier 
(Dell) and it will cost me about $200 instead of the $400+ 
it would have cost me to buy the entire XP Professional.

Again, thanks!
Koromac

I was advised that these two programs would enable me to

Does this make sense?
